Sad day for local gaming

My favorite local game shop, The Boardroom, closes its doors yesterday, forever.

I'm going to miss the place, and Jerry, and his daughter Alaine.

So I'm sitting here at work, wondering how to test some of this code, and my coworker says to me, "You've got a Blogger account? Make a post!"

So here it is.

So I got a copy of Fourth Edition D&D in the mail from Amazon yesterday. (Sorry, Jerry, I know it's stuff like that that's making you close up shop. I'll come buy some stuff soon.) It's...different. I can't tell yet if I'm going to like playing it or not. It's going to be ridiculously easy for someone, anyone, to convert that to a computer game. A character generator, monster generator, hell even a class generator - all those would be so simple to code up it's absurd.

I don't think WotC has put the license up (GSL) for this just yet, but I strongly suspect it will ban software implementations of the game.
