To play Dungeons & Dragons online, all you really need is an internet connection. But your experience will be even better if you also have:
- A webcam
- A microphone
- Rulebooks, like the Player's Handbook
There are a few different ways to play. Roll20 is a website with over 12 million users that lets you play Dungeons & Dragons online for free. It has all of the rules and tools you need, and you can also use the site to find a group to play with, buy officially-licensed books and adventures, try content from a huge community of creators, and more.
Roll20 is in the "virtual tabletop" category. A virtual tabletop (VTT) is an online application that allows people to play tabletop role-playing games in a shared digital space. Virtual tabletops can be used for all sorts of tabletop RPGs, including Dungeons and Dragons.
The VTT provides a digital environment for players and game masters to come together and engage in their favorite tabletop roleplaying games (RPGs) like D&D from anywhere in the world.
One of the primary benefits of using a virtual tabletop is the ability to connect with other players online. This enables gamers to join (and rejoin) groups with people they would not have been able to play with in person otherwise. VTTs provide a platform for players to schedule and organize game sessions, store character sheets and campaign notes, and manage the flow of the game.
In short, if you can do it on a real table, it's free on Roll20.net. That means rolling dice, making characters, drawing maps, measuring distances, aligning assets to a grid, and distributing handouts are all possible on our virtual tabletop for free.Start Playing Now
