PENNY ARCADE

Today is the release date for the new Dungeons & Dragons game, and Saturday game stores worldwide will quake with the rolling of 20-sided dice as free demonstrations launch the fourth edition.

I wrote a little about the game in today’s Tribune, and I recently blogged about the demo that I’ll be hosting at Bookmans Phoenix from 9:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, courtesy of Wizards of the Coast.

The guys at gamer Web comics Penny Arcade and PvP recently sat down with one of the new edition’s designers in what was, for many of them, a first experience with D&D. You can hear the results in weekly, illustrated installments of the official D&D podcast (strong language and funny sketch alert).
