If Only WOTC Would… Make a D&D Game for Google Glass

You may have heard about the heads up display from Google which they just call Glass.  If not, you can learn all about it here: http://www.google.com/glass/start/ Several ideas for gaming jumped right inside my head the first moment I saw them sitting on someone’s head.  One neat idea for D&D would be a better way to send secret messages between the players or even from the DM to the players or player to DM.  Imagine sitting...

Will the mighty creators of worlds hear our voice…probably not, but it’s still fun to imagine. This week we think to ourselves…if only WOTC would get the ball rolling on a quality live action version of Dragonlance: The Chronicles. I know this topic has been an undead horse for...
