Cool.

How's your interest in Cyberpunk 2077? It's taking a while...


It's not supposed to come out till at least 2015, they really just started on it.... But they are working closely with Mike Pondsmith... I am a prolific poster on their forums... and the devs are actually listening to what is being suggested there, in fact something I suggested way back when they first announced the game has already been confirmed... that you will be able to save and print off your character on a character sheet for use with your tabletop game...

Not a whole lot of info confirmed for the games, but it will be an open world rpg... so hopefully we are getting something like GTA crossed with Fallout New Vegas... at least thats my dream...

Hmn despite it being a browser game, it sounds interesting...

Meet Card Hunter, an RPG from veterans of Irrational, PopCap, and Magic: The Gathering

Card Hunter is a wonderfully genial sort of name for a video game - and the video game it belongs to seems suitably inviting, too. Blue Manchu's debut seeks to blend the collectible card game genre with the endless thrills of a good dungeon crawler, and if that doesn't sound cozy enough, it's also wrapping everything up in trappings that invoke the pizza-fuelled late nights of an '80s D&D session. I gather if you roll a double six, Judge Reinhold and Steve Guttenberg will appear and destroy you.

That D&D element is worth dwelling on before we get into the action itself, in fact. Although Card Hunter plays out in a web browser, Blue Manchu's used every trick available to give proceedings a lovely tactile feel. Your cards are dealt and deployed with a sharp, papery snap, while the tokens that represent your band of heroes - and the ghastly horrors they encounter - are made of thick, chunky board, and are pummeled into oblivion accompanied by the colourful crashes and crunches of uncommonly vivid sound effects. The playing area, meanwhile, is another piece of card laid out on what looks like the family dinner table. Paperclips and many-sided dice can occasionally be seen off to the side, while vanquished units gather along the edges the longer you play. Best of all, the quests you go on are represented by cheaply-printed booklets, fronted with limited-colour images and suitably pulpy sizzle text. You can almost smell the mimeograph ink.

Zero Charisma Rolls a +1 to Trailer and Poster

As the strict Game Master of a fantasy role-playing game, Scott (Sam Eidson) leads his friends in a weekly quest through mysterious lands from the safety of his grandmother’s kitchen. But his mastery of his own domain starts to slip—along with everything else in his life—when neo-nerd hipster Miles (Garrett Graham) joins the game, winning over the group with his confident charm and dethroning Scott with an unexpected coup. Caught in delusions of grandeur, Scott must roll the dice and risk everything to expose Miles as the fraud he believes him to be. A darkly comedic fable of epic proportions, Zero Charisma is an ode to nerds from every realm.

Sheesh 40 years...

Details of next 'Dungeons & Dragons' revealed

For the first time in six years, gaming fans will roll the dice with a new set of rules for the iconic role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons.

Publisher Wizards of the Coast will launch this with the fresh story Tyranny of Dragons this summer, the latest chapter of the role-playing game first launched 40 years ago.

The next chapter for Dungeons & Dragons will spread across multiple modern platforms, including a new tabletop adventure, and similar experiences for console video game systems and mobile devices.

"This is a huge year for us," says Nathan Stewart, brand director for D&D at games publisher Wizards of the Coast. "At the heart of Dungeons and Dragons, it's adventure."

Tyranny of Dragons pits players against throngs of dragons, led by their five-headed queen Tiamat, who has appeared in D&D lore as a key villain since the mid-'70s.

"It's really epic in terms of scale," says Stewart.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Dungeons & Dragons, first sold as a tabletop game in 1974 by creators Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson.

Basic Rules for Dungeons & Dragons

As Mike Mearls explained in Legends & Lore: The Basic Rules for Dungeons & Dragons is a PDF (over 100 pages, in fact) that covers the core of the game. It runs from levels 1 to 20 and covers the cleric, fighter, rogue, and wizard, presenting what we view as the essential subclass for each. It also provides the dwarf, elf, halfling, and human as race options; in addition, the rules contain 120 spells, 5 backgrounds, and character sheets.

But the best part? The Basic Rules is a free PDF. Anyone can download it from our website. We want to put D&D in as many hands as possible, and a free, digital file is the best way to do that.
