Tabletop RPG’s Online (part 3)
There are many other computer and console games that have tried to emulate the table-top environment, and there is even a new D&D game coming to consoles soon that allows one player to be the Game-master (GM), enabling him to invisibly move around and spawn monsters and traps, or even possess NPC’s for dialogue interaction, much like Neverwinter Nights did. Yet this still doesn’t quite accomplish the open-ended, imagination’s-the-limit quality of a true table-top game. I continually encounter people that tell me they used to play table-top RPG’s, but they explain they just don’t have the time to get together with people anymore. Thankfully, someone recognized this trend and there is a now another option for RPG players: Roll20.net!
