The folks at Turbine, working closely with Wizards of the Coast, have taken the latest setting of a classic pen and paper (P&P) Role Playing Game and brought it to us in full living dynamic color. Using the current rules set for Dungeons and Dragons, now 3.5 for those keeping score, Turbine has created a MMORPG that brings to life the world of Eberron. They have endeavored to create a computer-based system that uses the rules for character creation, advancement, combat and secondary skills. The current P&P rules set is called the D-20 system and uses a 20 sided die to determine the success at skill use and to resolve combat situations. In fact, when required, an actual D-20 will appear on the screen to show you the number that was “rolled” virtually for you by the computer.
