D&D Beyond is an official digital toolset created to help players run end enjoy 5th edition D&D. Wizards of the Coast has partnered with Curse, the app, addons,and mod site for Twitch, to give you the rules, character builder, digital character sheets, and compendiums you need instantly on any device.
“D&D Beyond speaks to the way gamers are able to blend digital tools with the fun of storytelling around the table with your friends,” said Nathan Stewart, Senior Director of Dungeons & Dragons. “These tools represent a way forward for D&D, and we’re excited to get them into the hands of players soon!”
The beta will have three major phases before launching this summer:
- Phase 1 – Compendium, Listings, and Forums
- Phase 2 – Character Builder and Character Sheet
- Phase 3 – Homebrew Integration and Campaign Management
Jess: Currently the site allows you access to the rules compendium, spells, items, monsters, and forums. There is an exciting and mysterious button on the site that says “Browse Homebrew”. It isn’t currently active, but I expect it will eventually let players share their own creations. I really can’t wait to see the character creator when phase 2 goes live and how Curse will help D&D Beyond work with Twitch.
