iPhone Dice Rolling Application - Mach Dice

I saw this and was mildly amused. If only iPhone's weren't such closed systems!. I hope they make it for the Gphone!

 

George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones HBO Series Pilot!

Direct from GRRM himself:

"HBO has given the production order.

They will be filming the pilot episode of A GAME OF THRONES."

If HBO does this half as good as their Rome series I will never ever cancel HBO from my cable subscription to save money. 

How long have we waited for a serious take on a fantasy series where they were not hampered by the censorship of the networks? A really long time!

If it does well I hope we can expect at least a good 13 episode run of the first book or two. Wow! 

Character Builder requires dotnet 3.5 - Can't run in WINE in Linux

<rant>So I downloaded and installed the Character Builder closed beta. It doesn't work under Wine, because it relies on that hunk of crap, one OS platform,  DotNOT from Microsoft.

Hey Wizards! Have you heard of Java? QT? GTK? Open GL? Until you have a working and usable multi-platform client there is only one thing you can do...

Bite me!</rant> 

We now return to your regularily scheduled program where we can watch Wizards with their head in the sand.

Digital Insider #14: Character Builder

Digital Insider #14: Character Builder - As hinted last week, the Character Builder closed beta will begin early next week. It will be open to Insiders and folks who signed up at D&D Experience, with the general public becoming involved at some time in December. [Wizards of the Coast D&D]

So the beta will start next week. I'm interested to know how well it will work, but only having levels 1-3 isn't going to be a good judge of that really. To really judge the product I would need it to at least hit around lvl 16 or so. That way I can see how the paragon paths and the mult-class feats will work. Just about anyone can sneeze and put out a 1-3 level character with pen and paper. 

The one thing that the article mentions that really scares me is the following:

How Many Times is Wizards.com going to crash this year?

I know this is repeatative but once again http://wizards.com is down while I've been trying to get ready for a podcast? Yeesh! Hey Wizards! Ditch Microsoft already will you? This is truly pathetic. If this is the kind of uptime we should expect from your D&DI stuff, then you might as well pack it in now. People are not going to take kindly to your site's uptime or lack thereof effecting their game sessions.

Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches

 Rob. Does Rhiannon have another carreer in gaming that we should all know about? I happened upon Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches and wondered. The trailer for the game shows it to be... rather stupid looking. But the trailer ends with a "She's been acting so odd recently", which I thought was appropriate for Rhiannon

Ressurecting the Temple Game

I have asked for everyone to level up their character to 5th for the grand restarting of the temple game.  Please send me either a full character sheet or a stat block, and be sure to include any high priced/masterwork/magical stuff.  In addition to allowing me to plan a little better, this will allow me to figure out if there was any group loot that remained unclaimed (let's be honest folks, it's been like a year), and if any characters have been left out in the cold as far as treasure goes.  As of this point, I have a sheet for Nailgus, as well as one for Rhiannon (plus menagerie).  I will update this as I receive additional player's emails.
