Big news for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition players. D&D Beyond is an online reference for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition content. As we reported earlier, the website is currently in the process of a three phase beta test.  The first phase, launched a few weeks ago, offered players online access to reference material for races, classes, monsters, and items. The second phase is designed to offer players the chance to create custom characters, and the third allows players to keep track of their custom scenerios.  Today, I’m happy to announce that the website has just entered Beta Phase 3, and players can now use the website to create new player characters and keep track of their custom campaigns.

This is enormous news, especially for new players like my friend the Unknown Cameraperson, who has been trying to perfect the creation of a Tiefling Sorcerer character with very little experience playing the game.  Now players like my friend will be able to use the website to create fully legal player character sheets they can bring to any campaign without the need of a Player’s Handbook or the Basic Rules.

D&D Beyond will be free to use during the beta test but the company running it does plan to start charging customers to use it once it leaves beta. You will need to have a Twitch.TV account to make full use of the website during the beta phase.
