in which you’ll touch real objects in a virtual world.

Real objects

Get back to real feelings, touch real objects and use them as the most natural interface with a system.
Instead of having 3D screens, have real objects on a screen: is there any better 3D than real 3D?

Razze femminili in D&D

6 maggio 2010

Si direi proprio che la migliore è la mezz’orca :D, abbiamo trovato la sposa per CAMILLO!!!

The best fantasy is written in the language of dreams. It is alive as dreams are alive, more real than real … for a moment at least … that long magic moment before we wake. Fantasy is silver and scarlet, indigo and azure, obsidian veined with gold and lapis lazuli. Reality is plywood and plastic, done up in mud brown and olive drab. Fantasy tastes of habaneros and honey, cinnamon and cloves, rare red meat and wines as sweet as summer. Reality is beans and tofu, and ashes at the end. Reality is the strip malls of Burbank, the smokestacks of Cleveland, a parking garage in Newark. Fantasy is the towers of Minas Tirith, the ancient stones of Gormenghast, the halls of Camelot. Fantasy flies on the wings of Icarus, reality on Southwest Airlines. Why do our dreams become so much smaller when they finally come true? We read fantasy to find the colors again, I think. To taste strong spices and hear the songs the sirens sang. There is something old and true in fantasy that speaks to something deep within us, to the child who dreamt that one day he would hunt the forests of the night, and feast beneath the hollow hills, and find a love to last forever somewhere south of Oz and north of Shangri-La.They can keep their heaven. When I die, I’d sooner go to middle Earth.


The objective of the SurfaceScapes project is to create a proof-of-concept for playing tabletop role-playing games on the Microsoft Surface Table. We will be using Dungeons and Dragons as a basis for our prototype, with the option for future expansion to other role-playing games. SurfaceScapes will provide Game Masters and players with a set of features to enhance the combat and role-playing aspects of tabletop games. This will include the ability to interact with the digital environment using real objects such as miniatures and provide automated calculations and visual and audio feedback for actions performed by the player and non-player characters. We are taking traditional tabletop role-playing games to the next level, adding a new layer of immersive and intuitive gaming to the Microsoft Surface Table and assisting both GMs and players in enjoying exciting and engaging adventures.
SurfaceScapes… what lies beneath.


2009-06-03-party-of-fourScrivo questo post per formalizzare la richiesta di Gherardo, per la formazione di un nuovo gruppo di gioco. Purtroppo i miei impegni, come sapete, non ci permettono di giocare molto. Accolgo quindi la richiesta di Gherard per la creazione di un altro gruppo di D&D supplementare al nostro.  Chiunque fosse interessato potrà rispondere a questo post. Per maggiori notizie potrete chiedere direttamente qui. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Grazie all’attento lavoro di Emanuele  (Tornato ai vecchi tempi della 4° profezia :D), sono venuto a conoscenza della possibilità di  aquisire dei difetti al personaggio in cambio di talenti bonus.

I difetti sono iÌ rovescio dei talenti. Dove un talento permette a un personaggio di eccellere nello svolgere un dato compito (o addirittura di effettuare un’azione che un personaggio normale non potrebbe compiere), un difetto limita le capacità di un personaggio o impone un qualche tipo di penalità.
Al momento della creazione del personaggio,u n giocatore può scegliere fino a due difetti. Dopo il  1° livello, un personaggiopuò assumere un ulteriore difetto a meno che non venga specificamente concesso dal DM . Leggi il seguito di questo post »
