Not completely in the Video Game news field, but since "Of Dice & Men" was one of my old features here on Gaming Nexus, I thought I'd share the news that Wizards of the Coast just released it's new web-based 4th Edition D&D monster Builder.

The tool is available to Dungeons & Dragons Insider (DDI) subscribers and requires Silverlight but works on Macs and PCs. If you're a fan of the current version of D&D considering the yearly DDI subscription benefits.. well this might make it an easier decision.

The full press info and feature list is after the jump.


Today, Wizards of the Coast launched the brand new D&D Monster Builder as part of the new web-based Adventure Tools suite for D&D Insider:
