D&D Online: "Misconception"
Posted: Friday April 8th, 2005 by

I really don't know how to explain today's comic. All I can say is that I hope the irony isn't lost on anyone.

Turbine announced yesterday that they were taking Alpha registrations for Dungeons & Dragons Online. [ more info ] Sure it's one more title in a laundry list of fantasy MMOGs. But, it appeals to the AD&D dork inside all of us. Try not to take that the wrong way, I wear the "AD&D Dork" monicker like a badge of honor.

There is one thing that stuck out as interesting to me while I was reading up on the game. It seems that as a distinct departure from AD&D common practice, experience will quest driven. That is to say, experience will not be handed out for killing monsters but rather for completing quests. Hey whatever works right? Gotta find a niche in the overpopulated fantasy MMOG market.

Today's Pimpage: These are both shirts that are slated for inclusion in the GU store. Patience is a virtue; but, if you really want to, you can contact me about setting up a pre-order.
