Trask has dispatched a proxy to the DDXP experience to do some recon. He should be reporting in tomorrow. In the mean time, Critical Hits has a very nice entry on the 4th edition rules and subscriptions.
A few comments/questions.
1. Will buying a dead-tree book get me access to the online version? If not, I promise you I am not paying extra to make the book searchable.
2. Most gamers I know are young and poor. $14.95 for “World of Warcraft” seems reasonable. The same price for WOTC D& D content strikes me as a hard sell.
3. Map utility sounds cool, but again, not worth $14.95
I outright refuse to partake in any site with “micropayments.” Maybe I am old, but buying “virtual” minis is just not worth it to me. Unless they translate directly to something physical, I am out.
I will post more when my spy reports in.
