Table top rpg experience, online?

I've always been fascinated by table top RPGs, however I don't know to many others who are. I've seen the emergence of table top aids for the iPad in the app store, but is there any word on a tabletop experience game that includes online multiplayer support? Any suggestions on current games that my resemble this sort of experience? Thanks for the help in advance.

Very interesting , can you perhaps list some of the games that do exist that you would like to see as an app?

Dungeons & Dragons, Shadowrunner, and Vampire: The Masquerade all come to mind right off the bat. Seeing apps like RPG Cartographer, and Battle Maps (i think i got that app name correct) seem to be a good starting point for the GUI. With the addition of other tools necessary (dice rolling, char sheets, rule framework, etc.) and a social component for organizing games, I think it could be enjoyable. Granted I am in no way a developer so it may be far more difficult than I realize.....oh and while I'm dreaming, why not utilize the built in mic and speakers for voice chat between players and DM?

What we really need is an iPhone/iPad version of Klooge Werks.
