Dungeons & Dragons players, good news. D&D Beyond, the official digital toolset of the classic game, is now live, so there’s nothing stopping you from creating all kinds of crazy characters and starting your next game. This digital toolset uses 5th edition rules and brings along the rules compendium, character builder, interactive digital character sheets, and much more. You can now play with digital versions of every official D&D sourcebook within the compendium, which is a pretty amazing resource. At this moment, you can only access the digital toolset through your browser since the native mobile apps haven’t yet launched (they should be coming in the near future). However, I’ve been using the toolset on my phone browser and it works pretty well.
The future of D&D Beyond includes things like monster and encounter building, digital dice rolling, combat tracking, and more. Additionally, the D&D Beyond team is working with the D&D team at Wizards of the Coast to ensure that the new adventures and rules material coming this fall also make it the digital toolset. This is a pretty great tool, and I can’t wait to get to use it more. Head over here and check it out.
