Roll20!

Roll20 is the free, easy way to play tabletop games (such as pen and paper RPGs) online with others. It's completely web-based, so it runs right in...

** Roll20**'s virtual tabletop, Compendium, and Character Building tools are powered by HTML5 technology and run directly in your web browser. There’s nothing to download or install and no messy configuration files for Game Masters or players. Want to invite someone to your game? You merely send a short link. And there’s never a need to do scripting or other tedious tasks, it all just works. Other digital tabletop gaming tools try to turn pen-and-paper experiences into an automated video game where your creativity is restricted. Roll20 instead gives you ways to enhance your own unique storytelling games via drawing tools, simple handouts, secret whispers, background music, and other real-time shared elements.
