So listening to the podcast today when Vinny mentioned what if Xcom had Skylanders figures. I got thinking about DnD. How sick would it be to buy your tabletop characters that have a chip inside of them that keeps track of their character sheet with all their stats. You could even buy generic unpainted ones and paint them yourself. You can make your party of 5 or so and scan them into the game or whatever. Players can make modules like in the orginal neverwinter nights game etc. etc.
Sorry nerd rant, but think that would be pretty fuckin cool lol.
