Many of us use Rol20.net as a virtual tabletop for all of our RPG games. Recently, 5E data has begun appearing in the system, and this morning, Wizards of the Coast and Roll20 have announced a new licensing deal to distribute even more Dungeons and Dragons content via the Roll20 system.
Available for purchase today is Roll20’s first licensed module with Wizards of the Coast, Lost Mine of Phandelver ($19.99).
According to Roll20, the Lost Mine of Phandelver comes with pregenerated characters, image handouts, maps, and tokens. Basically, the module content is to help the GDDM reduce setup times, and add a higher level of what I would call “production value” to the online gaming experience.
I expect this launch will work on two levels; first, for those who want to play pre-generated D&D adventures with their friends, and second, for those who want access to assets to use in future games.
“We’re always looking to broaden access to Dungeons & Dragons, and Roll20 already plays a significant part of that expansion,” said Greg Tito, Communications Manager at Wizards of the Coast. “We are excited to see what the future brings.”
The next module to arrive will be Storm King’s Thunder, which is available for preorder now, and will launch in September.
This is the first collaboration between Wizards of the Coast and Roll20.
