The official Dungeons & Dragons® Fifth Edition game system for Foundry Virtual Tabletop

Dungeons & Dragons® takes you and your friends on epic journeys. Become characters you create, battle deadly foes, uncover secrets, find treasure, and make memories that last a lifetime. The official free Dungeons & Dragons fifth edition game system for Foundry Virtual Tabletop provides support for all of the core rules of the game, a beautiful character sheet, and a ton of features to help make playing easier and more immersive like automatic character advancement, quick access to rules content, and the ability to request rolls from your players, distribute loot to a player or the party, and extensive support for Dungeons & Dragons' vision types like darkvision, tremorsense, and more so your players will see your world exactly as their characters would!

Game System Features

In addition to the following amazing features which are available now, we have written more about our upcoming roadmap and development plans for the official Dungeons & Dragons fifth edition game system so you can know what to expect over the coming months!

Reimagined Character Sheet

A beautiful, intuitive, and functional new character sheet provides a wonderful experience for creating, managing, and role-playing your character. This sheet features an entirely new design, improved organization, beautiful and informative tooltips, and way more. The new character sheet gives you access to:

  • Customizable list of favorites
  • Toggle between your portrait and token
  • Hide your character's artwork on a per-tab basis
  • Organize your items into groups
  • More expansive filtering so you can see just the items, features, and spells that you want
Gather the Party

It is now possible to designate a particular Group actor as the "Party" and add your player's characters to it. Having your player characters grouped up in a Party enables effortless automation of experience, currency, and loot distribution as well as DM-friendly automation for skill checks and saving throws. For example, hovering over any passive skill check will show you who in the party passes or fails the DC.

Requested Rolls

A new roll syntax allows the DM to easily request for players to make Ability, Saving Throw, or Tool checks against a configured DC. You can also easily test your Party's effectiveness against passive checks which summarize the group members who meet or exceed a passive check DC.


References to game rules like status effect conditions, terrain types, and cover mechanics now expand into elegant and helpful tooltips that make rules questions easy to resolve. These "ruletips" are supported both on our new character sheet as well as in Journal Entries whenever such rules are mentioned. Spend less time wondering what "three-quarters cover" means and more time focusing on the story!

Item Containers

Create Container items which allow you to bundle other items and currency together and even let your players manage their inventory and keep things more organized! Using containers allows for superior inventory management, easier loot distribution, clever shopkeeping, and more.

Expanded Automation

We have strengthened the foundation for roll automation, allowing us to provide more automated guidance for roll outcomes and paving the way for future updates with features like automatic resistance and vulnerability application, expanded use of Active Effects, and automated damage application workflows. In addition, there are even more features added for journals allowing you to embed references to other journals, detail specific character attributes, and more.

Dynamic Token Engine

The updated system includes a new rendering engine for official D&D creature and NPC tokens which will be provided by premium content modules. These official tokens are rendered using dynamic composition which allows for the token ring, background, and creature artwork to be addressed with special effects or UX prompts. For example, a visual indication is displayed on the token ring when a creature takes damage, receives healing, acquires a special status effect, or becomes targeted by a player.

Vision Modes

Dungeons & Dragons features a lot of different options for how creatures can see. Whether they're a burrowing creature with tremorsense, a denizen of the underground suited to the conditions with darkvision, or a magically enhanced creature with truesight or the ability to detect invisible creatures Foundry VTT's incredibly powerful vision and detection modes let you see the world as that character.

Creatures with tremorsense can detect any creature, visible or not, that is in contact with the ground and those with darkvision will see black and white where there is no light and full color as they enter even dimly lit areas while creatures with no special vision will be left in the dark without their own light source.
