My answers below may be vague in some cases. That's because we're staying mum on various aspects for the time being. More details will be forthcoming as we get closer to release late this year. A lot of details are likely to be be revealed at GenCon.

Essentially yes, but not in a traditional manner you're likely thinking of.

Realm Works will be significant step above PDFs in terms of capabilities.

Again, essentially yes, but not in a traditional manner you're likely thinking of.

Sort of. Masterplan is a nifty tool. We're doing something very different with Realm Works, but there will definitely some overlap in terms of general functionality.

Not in a traditional sense.

Sort of. Again, not in a traditional way.

I don't understand this one. Please give me a concrete example so I have a better idea of what you're seeking.

That sounds like Hero Lab to me. Realm Works will be distinct from HL, but the two will work in concert.

If that's just a FEW, I guess I should strap on a harness and brace myself before you really start to unload on us.
