Boing Boing preview of D&D 4th edition insider

Exclusive Gallery: Dungeons and Dragons 4.0's "D&D Insider" Screenshots - Boing Boing Gadgets

D&D 4th edition will include a program called insider, for those familiar think of it as WebRPG on steroids.
it's an application that will allow people to play D&D 4th, table top as is, over the internet with friends. a really cool idea, in this day and age, it's harder for people above the age of 20 to find time to sit down together, and a lot of us still enjoy gaming. sometimes you don' have the time, there's also those of us with Kids, sometimes transport in and of itself is problematic. this program aims to aid in a solution for that, and it looks sweet.

the screen shots look a little rough around the edges, but keep in mind this is a VERY early preview of the software. it includes a character designer, dungeon designer, and all the modules needed to run the game, such as maps and virtual "mini's" to place on them.
