I am looking for questions about D&D 4th Edition and questions you guys might have about the new D&D web application that is coming out for it.  I have a rep with Wizards of the Coast who will get questions to the right people, so if we can get a good number of questions I can send them to her.

I know several of you guys are playing a campaign on here.  You must have a few questions that you would like to get answered.  Post them here or PM me with them and maybe we can get them answered for you.

How will "virtual models" for use with their 3D dungeon/tabletop application be priced?   Part of the monthly subscription, purchased separately or some other method?

Can five murderous vagabonds heroes save their world from a roman empire knockoff the forces of evil?  Apparently so! Find out how they did it in the only best D&D game in General Analog Gaming!

i have a question - as a "collaborative promotional effort" (or something smile) can those of us doing the weekly shadowfell thing get lifetime subscriptions to the online mag and toolset? smile

Last I heard, the online dungeon would default to tokens of critters unless you put in a special access code from the appropriate D&D miniature to unlock the spiffy 3-D, bells-and-whistles version. Will the spiffy 3-D versions of creatures be available for separate purchase for those that have zero interest in buying the D&D miniatures?

Will all pre-made campaigns, such as Keep on the Shadowfell and Thunderspire Labyrinth, be available for purchase by DMs at pricing comparable to their book forms?

Will gaming groups be able to buy memberships in bulk? Or perhaps DMs being able to purchase a "licensing" system whereby they can transfer a license from a defunct player to a new party member?

What's your favorite and/or most recent "Oh, WOW!" moment when playing with the software?

With the plethora of tools already available for playing D&D games online, what's the draw to start paying for that ability?

Will their be some variety in magical items/clothing customization, or do all +1 Flaming Swords look the same?

+ Is there a mechanic in the virtual tabletop that simulates character vision type (normal vs. low light)?

+ Can "revealed tiles" be set up per character?  Say the rogue is ahead in the dungeon scouting... Can the DM light up different tiles that he sees that are not visible to the other players until they catch up to him?

I know this is kind of a silly question, but what the heck.  Are there any plans to take any of their minis in a "non-collectible" direction, since they are placing such an emphasis on the combat grid.  Such as offering an Orc pack or a Goblin pack or an adventurers pack?

Yeah, I know what their answer SHOULD be, but I may be pleasantly surprised.

Looks like I have quite a few questions here.  Anyone else?  Otherwise I will submit these in the next day or two.

How will the new rule set affect the story line in Order of the Stick since they are staying with the 3.5 rules?

It's taken a little while, but I got the interview posted.  You can check out the interview here:

I put in a few screenshots, but they are pretty small.  I've included them all in this message.

Some useful information turned up in your interview, and I love the additional screenshots. With Wizards giving out the pricing info (towards the end of our current D&D gaming thread), it's nice to see additional info on what will be available hopefully in the near future.
