While the game does offer a full co-op campaign for up to four players, the main appeal of Sword Coast Legends is the "DM Mode," where one player acts as the Dungeon Master and four others are the adventuring heroes. This mode allows the DM to create his or her own module, including story, NPCs, dungeons, and monster groups, and then guide the players through it, similar to how a real-life game of D&D might go.

Starting last Thursday, the roles of Tom, Dick, and Harry were assumed by a... trio of, well, let's just say that to call them anything beside "horrors from the ethereal realms of the old gods" is pretty kind.  Taylor, myself, and Matt (a.k.a RaynerRules, for those hanging out in the Shrimpers Forever chat) decided to guide the unlikely grouping of Grendy Smarphtickle, Juice Boy, and Heckers through the dangers of the Sword Coast.  The degree of success is up to debate.

Dan Tudge, the director of Sword Coast Legends and president of n-Space, sent a "State of the Game" letter out last week to talk about what their plans are for the game and to address the feedback they've received. One of the points stressed in this letter is that the initial release of the game is "a foundation for an even greater experience we have always intended to improve and expand". It's an interesting statement for a game like this. Assuming n-Space is truly attempting to build a game that allows players to play D&D via computer tools, that's no easy feat. Many titles have drawn upon the tabletop RPG for inspiration and implemented some mechanics, but very few have attempted to go really in-depth. Considering the PC and Mac versions of the game were pushed back a little, and the console versions were pushed back to next year, it may be that the game is still in its early stages, despite losing the "Early Access" moniker.

The DM is capable of adjusting just about anything in the world, telling a carefully crafted story to the players of their choosing and asking players to roll to decide certain in game events. Player driven content is going to be a huge piece of Sword Coast Legends alongside it's meaty single player campaign making this one of the largest games content-wise we've likely ever seen.

I hit up IMDb to see if I knew who either of these people, Olivia Vinall and Joshua McGuire, are. I kinda recognize Olivia from an episode of "Doctor Who," but no idea about Josh. Regardless, they both sound really great for the characters they voice, Illydia Maethellyn and Hommet Shaw, respectively.

I've never player a full on tabletop RPG but my interest in them has grown over the past few years. Went so far as to try and start a game with friends from across the country using Skype and a site to facilitate discussion/visualization, though schedules made it hard to maintain. So, having pored over my Players' Handbook and Monster Guide, I am looking forward to seeing these creatures in action.

According to the devs, the game needed "more cowbell", but I'm assuming they mean Vorpal Cowbell.  I mean, any old adventurer can happen upon a cowbell in some kobold dung, why would you need more of those?  As a token of thanks, the first DLC, "Rage of Demons", will be included in the pre-order package for all current and future takers.
