D&D to Consumer: Buy the Damn Book!

Sure enough, the new online D&D functionality WILL require you to buy a copy of the book to get the unique digital code. That means no sharing with your loser friends who don't have any money. It also means that if you're a family playing online, you'll need to have a copy for each family member. I'm not sure why a family would be playing online though.

Anyhoo, here's the answer from Scott Rouse, Brand Manager for D&D:

From Scott Rouse: yes. [MORE]
