Have you checked out d20Pro?

Rate this Entry
d20pro pushed out an update today. Version 2.1 is out of beta and available for download.

You know, I recently ran a 4th edition demo game using d20pro. It's actually a pretty sweet little app for running remote games, and even for using as a digital replacement for your battlemat at your regular face-to-face games as well. It was designed specifically for the d20 OGL ruleset and has a set of plugins to integrate nicely with Pathfinder. There are also patches for 4th edition, and the software will even automatically import the D&DI Character Builder files. It still has a ways to go to be able to truly handle 4e well as there are a number of things that you have to either keep track of manually or jury rig to handle the 4e ruleset. Nonetheless, I'd highly recommend checking it out. If you're running a 3.5e / Pathfinder game, this is going to be a perfect fit.

Check out this video.

    Wow! I so have to check this out. Hopefully it isn't as time consuming as MapTools, but not as bare as Gametable. Props to you once again Farcaster.

    Also, I wonder what would happen if I watched that video again, but while drunk...or while huffing laughing gas.

    It's a very slick engine but as I'm new to vtt's I'd need some help w/ how to get the campaign I run entirely into it. Before I going crazy with it (downloaded 2.1) I was wondering if you knew of any self help videos or if you knew of a site that had a step by step build for the engine. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks again for sharing this ahead of time.

    Cheers
