You mainly need access to at least some of the books and/or the D&D insider subscription (which gets youa ccess to the character builder and compendium). That's all you really need to have. Maps are done in a variety of ways depending on who the DM is, a lot of them are starting to use google docs spreadsheets now. Not as pretty, but makes it so players can edit it themselves to account for their actions on their turn. The main thing that's different from playing irl games is how initiative works, it's modified a bit to work better for the PbP setting.

Would you PM me a list of books that may be a good idea to look into? I can check out the D&D insider tools as well.

Allow the drop-in to select a class thats available, and force a selection if a critical class is absent, a tank or healer. This is the nature of a pickup game, and the challenge. If you're a purist, disable the option to join pickup games, don't discount it entirely for the other half of the game's community who want it.

Furthermore, thousands of players is still a large pool to pluck players from if they have a flag set to join pickup groups.
We are absolutely working on something similar to this.

In the short-term we are going to implement random invites for people who don't know about the TA forums or who just don't have anyone to play with. However, as has been noted here, it's not a great solution to the real problem which is, in my opinion, being able to build and manage a great party.

After the random games update is released we're going to work on a new system that will really help with the player discovery issues and facilitate a form of drop-in/drop-out functionality.

We've learned so much over the last week just by watching how people are coming together to form parties, and the kind of information they want to share to make that happen. We definitely want to bring all of that party making into the game so that everyone can benefit from it.

I know the launch has been a rough experience for some of our players but because of the great feedback we're getting I think we'll be able to fix a lot of the issues that people are running into over the next few weeks.

I just sent you a PM so we can try to figure out the problem you're having.

It's a pretty important thing tough...so I hope the dev will double check it too.
Are the values greatly different?
Maybe (I had other RPGs that this this) magical objects gives you enhancements with values based on percentages or the actual situation (like HP).
Or it's just a bug.

Where are you?
They don't vary a LOT. For crit, it's between around 2 and 8, and for accuracy, it varies between around 88 and 98.

Do you mean what quest/level am I at in the game? I've got a number of games going, but my highest is level 4/quest 3 I think.

We are on quest 8 and have ran into this problem twice now randomly. What you need to do is hit menu and resync then hit end turn. This should let you get past the problem. You have to be real quick to do it though hope this helps.
