While this is a little rough, the News at Seven
(edit) totally blows me away. While I don't see this type of thing replacing a good GM, I definitely think that as a game aid, there is a lot of potential here. Combine it with a more intuitive software Gaming Table (this
is what currently exists) and some good "off the shelf" gaming modules and I think that RPGs could expand its base a lot more quickly. Or we can take the whole thing online with Skype and custom Avatar Overlays
. Now we have an online rpg experience that I can get behind.
