There I was about to go to bed when I decided to check up on the latest gaming news. Well, in a bizarre 1-2 punch,
- Wizards of the Coast announces they’re giving up on their virtual tabletop
- Paizo announces they’re launching a virtual tabletop that sounds 1000% better
Oh, snap! Wizards has been promising a VTT since the beginning of 4e and has had infinite trouble in delivering. But check out the news on Paizo’s! Runs in a Web browser and is totally cross-platform; will have content from the Adventure Paths and all; and will be free (you’ll pay for some kind of extras). It doesn’t try to enforce rules (which is great), it just does tokens and map and initiative tracker duty.
I tell you what… Everything I hear about the PF MMO makes me think it’s going to suck, but since they are doing EVERY OTHER THING perfectly, it’s making me doubt myself – maybe it will rule too!
