For those of you "in the know", the new edition of Dungeons and Dragons has been released today. As I scramble to find 100 bucks or so to preorder the core rulebook set, I went ahead and found some interesting links for you guys.
First up, Gabe and Tycho (creators of Penny Arcade) as well as their eternal nemesis Scott Kurtz (of PVP fame) got together for an exclusive playtest of 4E. And, luckily for us, they are releasing the sessions as both a podcast and a webcomic on WotC's website. Listen to it, if only to hear the character name discussion ("Jim Darkmagic" indeed) and learn about the "rat king".
For my fellow science nerds/BSG fans, there is The Science of Battlestar Galactica. Definitely check out the two-part article about possibly the most controversial part of the show: Cylon-Colonial crossbreeding.
And because Agent Bedhead linked to me, I am returning the favor. Plus, it is pretty funny.
Kudos to Daniel for reigniting my desire for both Lost and Evangeline Lilly.
