that tells a story.
Roll20 brings pen and paper gaming to the web the right way. Built on a powerful platform of tools, yet elegantly simple, it focuses on enhancing what makes tabletop gaming great: storytelling and camaraderie. It's incredibly easy to get started, and runs right in your web browser, so there's nothing to download or configure.
Roll20 is powered by HTML5 technology and runs right in your web browser. There's nothing to download or install, and no messy configuration files, for GMs or players. To invite players to a game, just send a short link. And there's never any need to do scripting or other tedious tasks, it all just works.
Other virtual tabletop software tries to turn pen and paper into a video game. Instead, Roll20 provides tools to enhance storytelling and bring your group together, including text and video chat, player journals, background music, and a real-time shared graphical tabletop.
Roll20 doesn't worry about mechanics, so it can be used with many games. Play D&D online (any edition), Pathfinder, Shadowrun, Savage Worlds, FATE, indie RPGs, other tabletop games, and more. Roll20 features basic tools like dice rolling, turn tracking, and markers that can easily work with any system.
