Shortcomings of D20 as a CRPG


Found via a writeup on Slashdot, here is a fellow on Kuro5hin writing a fairly in-depth analysis of the problems inherent in converting the pencil-and-paper D20 RPG to a computer RPG, Temple of Elemental Evil. The fellow has a few interesting and possibly controversial opinions on what RPGs, both traditional and computer, should be, but it's still an interesting comparison of how the differences in paradigm affect the translation of one to the other.
