Online RPG Environment

I’ve been trying to come up with a list of business requirements for a utility that would allow us to play Chadowrun over the ‘net.

  • Character Management utility
  • Dicebot
  • Combat Manager?
  • User Account Manager
  • Campaign Manager
  • Equipment / Items DB?
  • Text Chat
  • Voice Chat?
  • Videoconferencing?
  • Collaborative Map Editor (with user roles – GM can modify layout and move NPCs and such, players can annotate, draw temporary marks, and move their characters)

Knowing which of these is priority will help me develop a functional free app to allow us to play.  Thanks!

UPDATE:  Progress is being made on the character database.  Here’s a screenie of me getting a 90.4% success rate on the unit testing:

And after adding some proper exception handling code, we’re up to 91.2%:

    Let’s start with #1 – the Character Manager. So far for requirements, I have: the ability to create, display, and edit a character. Question: Should this be web-based or GUI-based?
