The Roll20 Version is a great time saver for online play! For new DMs to Roll20, there is a learning curve to Roll20 like any other toolset, but you'll be able to catch on after watching a few instruction videos. A lot of it is intuitive, and there is plenty of experienced DMs out here that can help.

Today!! Princes of the Apocalypse has been released Roll20. It joins several other digitally converted D&D 5th edition adventure modules that are offered on Roll20. Lost Mine of Phandelver, Curse of Strahd, Storm King’s Thunder, Tomb of Annihilation, Tales of Yawning Portal, and Tyranny of Dragons (Hoard of the Dragon Queen & The Rise of Tiamat). And like each of those, it has been painstakingly converted from the book into a well crafted digital version of the book.

The module is organized and has all of the elements needed to run an online campaign that will last several months depend on how often you can play. If you have any of the other modules, you will see the work that was put into this conversion, and it will save you a lot of time running your own campaign online.  All of the maps are there at your finger tips along with hidden tokens for monsters and NPCs.

If you are interested in playing an online D&D campaign and have experienced players wanting a challenge, then I highly recommend this adventure. You can start with fresh characters and go up to level 15. There are some added options for player character when you play Princes of the Apocalypse like spells and races (see OOOOSH). If you follow the D&D Adventurers League (AL) rules, you can play those characters in Adventurers League games that are run at your local hobby shop, other online AL games, home games, or AL convention games (like the great ones that Baldman Games runs at Winter Fantasy/Origins or GenCon)

There is some required practice for running D&D games on Roll20. I’ve been playing on Roll20 for a long time now, and I remember my first few sessions. It takes a little time, patience, and learning and you’ll make some mistakes. This isn’t meant to scare you away, but just wanting to let you know.
