DND Across the Interwebs

Hi everybody,

im sure im not the only person who wants to play dnd with friends that are out of state.

Me and a few friends wanna play DND but we don't live near each other, or in the same state anymore.
I had the idea of using internet resources to play together, vent, IM, etc. but we need other resources, like something where we can see dice-rolls digitally, etc. basically any resource you might want for playing DND, we have the books, so thats not a problem.

so im asking if anyone knows programs or sites that will network a few ppl together with dice and possibly map creators. the kicker is that we need it free. if anyone knows of anything like this, it is greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance

P.S.- if there are ones that cost money or are relatively cheap i suppose they may help too.

    All you need.

    FYI - in the future posts like this would be better suited in the main D&D thread.

    If you do go with the rptools suite of software, I'd also recommend using this user created framework too.

    It can be quite a bit of work to set up as it involves work on both the DM and players' parts but you do end up getting nice profile cards and power buttons like this:

    I found it to be pretty worthwhile in my game.
