The 'Dungeons & Dragons Online' website has been updated with a new dev diary talking about the challenges behind implementing a character ability system into the game that stays true to the PnP D&D ruleset.
Developing character abilities involves a plethora of interesting challenges. PnP Dungeons & Dragons has the advantage of the greatest rendering engine, the greatest AI algorithms, and the greatest dynamic content generator ever invented the unbounded human imagination. Needless to say, the bars set pretty high.

Implementing the various class features from PnP D&D can get pretty overwhelming at times. Some abilities are easy to carry over, while others create various game design and/or technical challenges. Not that Im complaining these challenges give me the opportunity to use my own creativity and imagination to solve problems that I care passionately about.
