Dungeons & Dragons has always been very popular, but the last couple of years have seen its popularity rise even more, with live-streamed sessions becoming quite a thing. Wizards of the Coast has decided to help make D&D even easier to set up and play – and, therefore, even more accessible – by developing D&D Beyond, the official digital toolset for use with D&D 5th edition rules. The toolset, which will come to your mobile devices as well, will include a rules compendium, character builder, digital character sheets, and much more. As the announcement points out, this digital toolset should make it easier for both veterans and beginners to get into the game.

D&D Beyond will be coming this summer, and you can sign up for the beta here, although I don’t know whether the beta will extend to mobile devices. As you can see from the trailer above, D&D Beyond will definitely make it easier to play the game, although I have to wonder whether D&D purists will welcome it or not.
