Ah, the joys of electronic publishing and instant gratification for the consumer. I caught the post at The Society of Torch, Pole and Rope last nite that Knockspell 4 was released. Minutes later it was mine to hold. Well, maybe not literally hold, but virtually hold.
Then I promptly went to sleep. What can I say? I had a long day.
Tonight I've flipped pages... okay, I've scrolled thru the magazine and it appears to be quality as always. That being said, my eyes were drawn immediately to the article reporting on Online Gaming. Play by Post, mail, blog, Google Wave, chat, VTTs. Sorry, but a bit of a disappointment. I know its billed as a quick overview, but I really wish there had been a mention of more of the Virtual Table Tops that are available. Half the article dealt with VTTs and was pretty much... well, not much of anything. It centered on OpenRPG with a throw away mention of Fantasy Grounds. I guess this is something I could write up myself for submission to one of the mags. I've toyed with at least a half dozen of the VTTs out there ;)
