Cookin' Papa!

So I have this idea for a cooking show that I want to do.  Mainly I want to do it for cons live, but doing it on YouTube would be a great way to spread it around.  Cookin' Papa: Cooking with Trolls (working title) would be all about helping your average basement-dweller learn how to make quick, easy meals for themselves.

Gameplay Revolution in MMOs

Someone had mentioned that Shadowrun would make an excellent MMO.  I agree.  I also think that most RPG systems out there could be made into...
