Dungeon masters with deep, dark pockets no longer need imagine how the venerable tabletop game Dungeons & Dragons might play on a futuristic multi-touch platform. Six students at Carnegie Mellon University recently released a video showing off their D&D concept for Microsoft's Surface Table, complete with a storyboard slideshow and rolling the virtual 20-sided die.
That sound you hear is a million d20s clattering on tabletops, rolled in tribute.

E. Gary Gygax, the co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons, has rolled his last d20. He was 69.
I could go on and on about the impact D&D had on multiple generations of geeks, freaks and nerds, or its influence on modern computer gaming (World of Warcraft, LotROnline and Everquest), or even its rather checkered history with the civilian population. (Who remembers the anti-D&D hysteria in the 80s?)
