  • New D&D starter set. Comes with 'digital onboarding'. Dragons of Stormwreck Isle. We knew about that one.
  • D&D digital monstrous compendium. Available to those with WoTC or D&D Beyond Accounts. Volume 1 has an eldritch lich and the 10 legged asteroid spider. And the starlancer. Might have misheard some of that!

Oh ok. I was under the impression the majority of WotC's revenue was now from D&D. That doesn't conflict with MtG making "more than ever", note. Both could be true simultaneously. But I know you track these things more closely than I.
You might have mixed it up with the announcement that Wizards now make up the majority of Hasbro's revenue and/or profits.

Fizban's had about 10 pages of spells and magic items, and I'm going to guess we'll have a similar number here. Outside the obvious Spelljammer helm, I can't think of many old setting-specific spells and magic items that are crying out for updates, really.

~10 pages for character options, ~10 pages of spells and magic items, ~20 pages of ships and ship combat rules, ~20 pages of setting-specific rules and "geographic" info (as I said on another thread, actual "geography" would probably need 10 pages at minimum for examples, but they could definitely go higher. Or not.). Leaves ~4 pages, but obviously these are just approximations and could be flexible either way. Seems a reasonable breakdown to me...
Don’t forget to account for at least two pages of trinket tables, that every WotC product seems to require ;)
