Dragon Age Pen & Paper RPG unveiled

Tabletop of the pops this summer.

BioWare has just announced a pen and paper version of Dragon Age: Origins for release this summer on, er, tabletop.

Green Ronin will do the legwork and invite players to "create their own heroes and join the fight against the dark spawn in a world of violence, lust and betrayal", reckons the statement.

What that probably boils down to is putting on a robe and wizard hat, inviting friends into the attic, pushing little figures around a board and having mother make lemonade.

Nevertheless, this may capture a useful audience as Dragon Age: Age begins its autumn take-off approach on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
