    I wonder if we eventualy see deals where if you buy DnD books trough Amazon you also unlock that content in DnD beond.
    That would be great. Even better make it a Prime benefit.

    Would be nice to have content cross-linked. E.g., click on "Frightened" in a monster entry and be brought to a page on the Frightened condition. Other than that, so far it look nice and will be useful in game prep. On-line only, however, may be a deal breaker. When character building becomes available, I want to be able to access my character sheets from a tablet even in location where there is no wifi.

    Yeah, that is definitely a missed opportunity and something I really hope they improve on later on. I'd actually prefer it to be a hover over but even a link that opens a new window would be OK.

    Post this suggestion to their feedback forum page. Hopefully they'll notice it.

    I'm pretty happy with what I'm seeing so far, spells and monsters easy to search, sort and read. I completely agree with this though - I was very surprised to see that things weren't cross-linked throughout the compendium. Having to go back to the index page and drill back down to find things was disappointing.

    I checked out their forums. They have forums for every class but the Warlord. 0/10 will not visit again.

    A travesty. Maybe the Warlord fans can shout the forum back on.

    No kidding? Thanks, Captain Obvious!

    I'll clarify: I would not have expected DDB to be opened for public comment in this beta test iteration without both a search function for the compendium of rules and links to referenced rules from within compendium pages. I do hope that clears up my meaning for you.

    Heh, heh. Yeah, I know.

    My point is that software in beta often have missing features, either because they were not obvious to include or they are planned for a later update. To point out that the software would be improved with this feature is awesome and part of the point of beta, but to express disdain that it isn't there now is a bit silly.
