Chicks play D&D!

I’m not quite sure what to think of this, but Dungeon Majesty features four women who not only play Dungeon’s & Dragons, but allow themselves to be filmed in costume. (Sorry Karrdes – I don’t see any chainmail.) The teaser is very Land of the Lost. On crack. (via Metafilter)

While I’m here, apparently October 15th was the 30-year anniversy of D&D. Whoo? Yay?

And if while this has absolutely nothing to do with D&D except for being, well, another RPG, White Wolf has relaunched their popular Vampire system. This is notable as looking at the pictures in Vampire: The Masquerade is the closest I’ve ever come to an actual RPG. (Well, outside of all that WEG stuff I bought back in my fangirl days.)

Obviously, we need someone who knows something about gaming to blog about it.

Dark Nest details

The official site has posted about Troy Denning’s post-NJO trilogy.

The disappearance of a small team of Jedi Knights — including Jaina and Jacen Solo — in the Unknown Regions has sparked controversy. The reclusive Chiss has lodged a formal complaint, angrily accusing the missing Jedi of meddling in a border dispute between the Chiss and an unidentified aggressor.

Jedi Master Luke Skywalker ventures into the Unknown Regions to contain the damage, while Han and Leia follow, concerned for their children. What they find is a colony of mysterious aliens edging towards Chiss space, led by a Force adept who is recruiting old and powerful friends to his cause. He is compelling them to join the colony and meld their Force-abilities with his, even if it leads to all-out war.

Not quite the ‘Back to Naboo!’ we were expecting… Honestly? I’m a little relieved. But I’m strange.
