Today we learned that Wizards of the Coast’s Dungeons & Dragons is getting an app, D&D Beyond. The new app is being called a “Toolset” and will be based off fifth edition rules.
We are excited to announce development of D&D Beyond, an official digital toolset for use with the Dungeons & Dragons fifth edition rules. We have partnered with Curse to take D&D players beyond pen and paper, providing a rules compendium, character builder, digital character sheets, and more—all populated with official D&D content. D&D Beyond aims to make game management easier for both players and Dungeon Masters by providing high-quality tools available on any device, empowering beginners and veterans alike!
Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition Tools, Rules, Races, Classes, Items, Spells, Monsters, and More:
- D&D Compendium with Official Content
- Create, Browse, & Use Homebrew Content
- Manage Characters – Build, Progress, & Play
- D&D News, Articles, Forums, & More
- Access Anywhere, Anytime, 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….These tools represent a way forward for D&D, and we’re excited to get them into the hands of players soon!”
