Kale Stutzman when they revealed the 3D VTT on that big One D&D product launch.
Your concept that WotC suggested these are integrated products is denied every single time they talk about it. The only person making the connection is you and some vloggers.
D&D's new virtual tabletop is, for better or worse, the future of the game. And here's a closer look at what WotC has planned.
I guess you're presuming the 3D VTT has some kind of entirely separate character generation and updating which essentially replicates Beyond's functionality? And only optionally integrated Beyond? That's entirely possible, but I think not very clear yet. How do you think it works?
Cool visuals at what price to the DM. I tried out Talespire and it took me about 4 hours to just build an inn. Now I am sure with practise, I could get better but nothing in the experience convinced me that it was a worthwhile use of my time as a DM.
