Virtual tabletops are the future.

While nothing can ever replace real-life sessions, technology progresses with each passing year and the value that a virtual tabletop can add to your physical tabletop is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore. For those going completely virtual, webcams and voice-chat recreate the face-to-face experience and give gamers from around the world to the opportunity to connect with distant friends, relatives, or even strangers and roll some virtual d20s.

In a live-streamed Q&A and roundtable discussion about virtual tabletop gaming, we spoke to special guests Azhrei, the lead developer of the popular virtual tabletop application MapTool, and Keith Athey, author of The New Moon Murders

and member of the MapTool team, to help demonstrate what a virtual tabletop can do and provide some insight into the virtual scene.

You can listen in on the discussion in the video, above.
