Where would I like to see innovation in RPG gaming?
Well, now Innovation. Man in the last few years there has ben a tremendous amount of innovation in RPGs. Roll 20 and Fantasy grounds have revolutionised gaming away from the table and it’s about as good as I think we will see for some time.
There are several applications for tracking your games and your characters out there that do this masterfully but these have been established for some time and I don’t think we will see any innovation coming from these programs anytime soon.
Much like Character sheet programs, I think we have seen Dice Roller come as far as we are able to take them as well and this leaves us with another area I can not see improving as of now.
One thing I have longed to begin adding to my games is more Virtual handouts. I am not talking about a sheet of paper so much as Custom News Feeds. Mock Videos. A wide collection of some excellent forms fillable documents. I know with the right editing equipment and programs this is already possible. I would like to see a set of tools to make this more user-friendly.
I have seen some of the things that Invisible sun has dabbled in and I love the outer ideals of having clues in the real world and embedded online and such for players to seek out as well. But at a cost, that is not prohibitive.
If any of you use anything like this or have suggestions I am more than willing to seek out and give these things a try !
Am I crazy for reaching so high? Or am I blind and it already exists?
Until next time.
