- http://www.gametableonline.com/forum/index.php This is the Virtual Table first used by WotC. It's now owned by Game Table Online and is the easiest to use Online tool to allow RPG tabletop gaming I've ever found. It's optimized for D&D, particularly 4e for which it was made. But, it has a generic character template, as well as a generic monster template and the ability to import an image to use as a map so it can be used for other systems. It's core features are absolutely free to use for GM's and players and it's very easy to to just link images to players and not need to purchase any additional features. However, it's not actually easy to find on the Game Table Online site, so I've included the player tutorial in the next link to show you how to find it and use it to play D&D. I've also included the mibbit link. Mibbit is an IRC where several regulars hang out and answer questions from new players.
