dndd.jpg Turbine and Atari have rather cutely announced that Dungeons & Dragons co-creators Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson will be making cameos in the forthcoming Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach MMO, and specifically "will provide the game's first celebrity "Dungeon Master" voiceovers for certain in-game adventures."

The duo's return is somewhat reminiscent of Stan Lee's cameo in the Spider-Man 2 movie, in terms of retro hat-tipping. But wait, 'the game's first' celebrity DMs? Which celebrities are next? We vote for Wil Wheaton and Vin Diesel, but we're dumb like that.

The instance-heavy MMO apparently uses scripted DM talk extensively, something discussed in previews since the NDA got lifted last week. The buzz seems a little odd, though, if even the aforementioned fans are concluding: "I think this game is a 'niche' game. It'll play best for those dedicated gamers that like to play with a core group of people." I guess we'll see when D&D Online launches next month.
