But just think of the microtransactions for customizing your PCs' cosmetics!I think WotC is making a mistake building one.
Depends on how it works. This one is going to be just for D&D and has no need to be generic to accommodate other systems, as result much of the systems can be integrated in.I have mucked about in Talespire and prep is a lot more involved than in 2D (really a lot more involved). I can see the attraction, but I am not sure that the result is worth the preparation.
You could and presumably it will have the published books prebuilt, but it is D&D, and the nice thing about D&D is that one can go off script and do one's own thing.Depends on how it works.

You could probably have something like the DMG's random dungeon generator attached that automatically creates a dungeon for you.
Like a cardboard stand-up or a flat disk? I'd actually be quite keen on cardboard stand-ups as an option.Yes, but I also want the VTT to support 2d maps and assets. 3d environments for big marquee encounters but 2d for the rest. And I want the 3d maps to support 2d tokens where it's just a picture of a creature on a token base.
