Roll20 Takes Online Table Top Gaming to the Next Level

June 4, 2012 by dracs

Have you ever tried role playing a game of D&D over Skype? Sometimes it can be a real pain to get everything sorted and the lack of a shared dungeon to move your minis around means its never quite as good as when your playing as a group. But that is all changing with the new Roll20 virtual tabletop!

Roll20 Art Library

Roll20 started as a Kickstarter project, but has now been successfully funded and will has entered a closed beta stage.

The program brings you a new and adaptive way to play your tabletop games online, with text and voice chat to help you and your party interact with one another.

It also offers a wide range of art options and even sound tracks to help immerse you in your game.

The system can also be adapted for use with a wide variety of role playing games, meaning you won’t be limited in how you play.

But that’s enough of me blathering on, watch the video and see for yourself.

*UPDATE*

We just received word that Roll20 is entering into its open Beta stage today, meaning you can now take it out for a test run.
