I miss tabletop. I miss the fellowship and the creation of it. MMO's are a sad replacement for actually getting together and creating a story with a group of people.

I hope this tool works. I'm looking forward to trying it. After my last group fell apart in '05, due to friends moving, etc....I lost touch with the pen & paper format..

I haven't played PnP D&D since the early 80s.

Loved it though.

man even during the long stretches of not playing I still collect the books, because it's fun to get ideas. And the best part of PnP format is if another game had a rule or a mechanic you wanted to implement into your favorite game, you were only limited by your own imagination and conversion methods.

After looking into it a little, I agree with you that a "wait and see" approach is called for here. I thought 3.0/3.5 was a great advancement.

Usually when I hear "streamlining" it sends up a red flag for me to watch out because it usually means I'm losing some ability/class/game feature. Personally, I like complexity in an rpg game.

I would appreciate any info you can give on this program. What I'm drawn to the most in reading about 4.0 is the virtual table feature, but I'm not willing (at least at this point) to pay extra (if I remember correctly it was about $12 to $15/month) for that feature.

A-HA! Found it!
http://gametable.galactanet.com/

Free, Java based, simple. But it works so well. And as the site recommends, use this with a VoIP program like TS or Vent, it's perfect.



Oh yeah and as mentioned previously...you can make the tiles and "pogs" for the minis in photoshop or other graphics programs. And since it's just a tabletop and dice bar, you can use it with any freaking PnP rpg you want.

Oh....

Thanks for the screenshot. I'm liking the idea of this more and more...so expensive to upgrade editions though. /sigh

Heh, then don't upgrade the editions! The pic I posted above is for a free client that's already available, not designed for any one specific game (hell if you look closely they're playing Warhammer 40K on the screenshot....)

No where is it written that you can't continue playing with your current books. The beauty of PnP rpg's....
