My thoughts is I "love" the idea of a web based player version of RW. This will be of great use both at a game session and away as my players are not all locked into Windows and laptops. In addition during the work week some of my players have no access to computers (ie Window based Laptops) but do have access to tablet/phones. Several have voiced the desire to read up on the last games information but can't do it on the phone/tablet devices. RW Web Based player edition will be most welcome.

As a DM I admit I am not too excited about a web version for the DM. The desktop software already runs slow and I can't imagine it running faster on a web server. Like others would hate to suddenly have "internet" connection issues during a game. I am glad to hear that the desktop version is not going anywhere anytime soon.

I had exactly this discussion with players last night, hoping to get a way for them to see the content wherever/whenever. Player web view would be awesome, DM web tools isn't something I'm interested in.

EightBitz and Shadow speak for me.

On this, at least.

Agreed, I have not really a need for a web based version for DMs...

While I can see a use for a web based DM version for those moments when I have an idea or time to kill away from my desktop unit, I have to agree that it is not a priority for me. Having the player's able to see revealed information on tablets and phones is much more useful.

This needs to follow the new concept of.. Give the people working read only player Web access asap and develop it over time. I would kill for the version shown in the video over a year ago just so I can start to get my players into my world without the need for a standalone application.

This was never a "new concept". The plan was always to start with the web version for players, then make it a tool for in-game use for GMs, and then evolve the entire product to the web. Each of those stages opens up RW to a much wider audience in a systematic manner.

And we NEED a web-based version for GMs to support folks who either (a) aren't Windows users or (b) don't want the bulk of a laptop at the table during play. Yes, there are gamers out there like that!

Is it really worth the work for the GM web tool for those 23 possible buyers?

I jest of course.

Player web view would be a boon, especially if it could connect live/real time to the GM tool.

But I want to voice my support of the windows GM tool, for the rest of the millions who do use Windows, this is the shiznat! I personally am little despondent at the regression of apps to web. Oh sure bejeweled is cool, but it is no Skyrim. Likewise, I would not want to see RW GM client be the next bejeweled web app.

Tablet support would be fantastic. And that's what the GM version on the web would provide. It's also a good option for older laptops as the processing and loading would be limited by the internet rather than the CPU/memory.
