Tabletop RPGs online

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know/use any freeware programs that allow for tabletop RPG gaming to happen in groups online? There are lots of people I'd like to play with that live all over the world.

Doesn't that somewhat defeat the purpose?

Not really; I play a lot of D&D this way (usually just in an AIM chatroom). Still very fun.

Hmm, the one program I was introduced to was like, killed recently.

Try "Open RPG", its got your dice, a map to draw on and use digital minatures on, and a bunch of useful and helpful features.

It is a download, and I do keep my eye out for others.

Though no, doing it online doesn't defeat the purpose. For one thing, you have a lot more freedom to assume any role/character due to the internet's ability of anon. Plus you have a wider access to talented RP-ers willing to paly a whole variety of game systems besides just the big ones.

The best I know of are some dice rolling programs which you can easily find with a google search. I haven't tried it yet, but I imagine something like a paint chat would be useful.

I like to play a lot of old and new World of Darkness games, and a lot of the people I'd like to play with are all over the place. More tools for this sort of thing would be useful.
