Playing Dungeons & Dragons has always been an interactive and cooperative experience, and now you can fully enjoy that experience online thanks to Wizards of the Coast who have inked a deal with Roll20 to officially distribute Dungeons & Dragons content.
Basically, this eliminates the need for players to distribute their own materials. All of the official stuff will be right there in the Roll20 interface.
This partnership begins with the introductory adventure module Lost Mine of Phandelver, which is available now in the Marketplace.
Ideal for a group of 4 to 6 players, “Lost Mine of Phandelver” includes the entire adventure in a digitized format with 5 pre-generated characters, digital game tokens and maps, digital handouts for both Dungeon Masters and players, and the high-powered customization of the Roll20 interface.
More content will follow, including Wizards of the Coast’s latest upcoming adventure – Storm King’s Thunder.
This storyline is already available for pre-order now in the Roll20 Marketplace and will be available on launch date in Roll20 on September 6th, 2016.
Roll20 is available for your desktop and has mobile apps for the iPad and Android. It works with multiple browsers, has integrated video and voice chat and can be used to play pretty much any tabletop game online with friends.
