Ok, I got a couple of private messages from people about the platform I am planning to use to launch my latest game. So I figured we needed a thread to talk about online tools and to talk about how awesome Roll20 will be.

Roll20 is a new browser-based online RPG tool system that is going to fix a lot of problems we have with RPGing online. They are currently wrapping up their fundraising campaign on Kickstarter. Here is a clip from their website:

Roll20 brings pen and paper gaming to the web the right way. Built on a powerful platform of tools, yet elegantly simple, it focuses on enhancing what makes tabletop gaming great: storytelling and camaraderie. It's incredibly easy to get started, and runs right in your web browser, so there's nothing to download or configure.

Here is their product demo video

And they have shittons of dice rolling abilities as well as awesome token tracking and card deck systems. I am excited for it. My groups have tried MapTools, IRC and a multitude of other systems but they seem to bring a host of problems to the table. I am looking forward to testing it here next week. If you want to get it on the Beta of the website, you still have about a day or more to back it at the $25 level.

What tools do you use to handle online RPGing? Do you do only Play by Post? MapTools? IRC meetups?
