Re: Dungeons and Dragons (and other tabletop RPGs)

Well, Geist finally inspired me to buy a White Wolf game. And I love it. It's just so ... different than your stereotypical World of Darkness experience. Getting a badass krewe together and having a blast out of life and death. It's awesome.

Also amazing, is the new edition of Paranoia.

So I was playing some board games the other day, when I had an awesome idea: Planeswalkers of Catan, the Magic/Settlers crossover. You have 5 resources in each, and the simple but deep rules of Settlers should correlate well to the outrageous tactics available in Magic. Basic rules as far as I've go...

I was about to suggest just draw a tiny map copy of the parts the characters can see and erase the parts they can't, but then I remembered that 4.0 needs minis for combat.

Perhaps leave the main map blank and tell the group when they hit a wall, and give them a smaller dry-erase map they can see.
