Off the Monitor and onto the Tabletop?



Will Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach (DDO) spark new interest in Dungeons & Dragons, the pen and paper roleplaying game that started it all? Zed interviews a UK hobby games store owner to get his take. Will DDO bring MMOG players over to tabletop gaming, or is it the other way around?

I'm amazed at how much DDO does capture the atmosphere of the pen and paper game. From making inns the focal point for players getting together, to the little messages that pop up during your time in a dungeon, the devs have done a grand job. The choices you make for your character with regard to skills and feats also seem to generally hold true to the PnP game, showing they have managed to recreate them quite faithfully in the MMOG. Incorporating [integrated] voice chat is only going to add to that and help promote a real feeling of table top role playing.
