In an effort to support people continuing to play D&D during the COVID-19 pandemic (a game that is played around a table in person for many), Wizards of the Coast have been giving away free content all week for fans of all ages and advice and resources to play D&D online. Lots of us have already been playing online for years or moved our games online temporarily back in March, but it’s great to see this type of support from the D&D team at Wizards of the Coast.
Here is the press release that was sent out today.
This week, Wizards of the Coast launched a new online resource offering free Dungeons & Dragons materials: https://dnd.wizards.com/remote. The content is designed for both new and seasoned adventurers, with new content added daily (Mon-Fri) at 5:00PM PT.
With schools closed around the world and so many people working from home right now, playing games like Dungeons & Dragons can keep you connected to friends and family, while offering fun and educational material to share and/or play with your kids. For younger gamers, resources to make it even easier to get into D&D are also available. At its core D&D is about great storytelling — the game provides a framework that sparks creativity and imagination and brings people together from all walks-of-like to embark on epic adventures.
In addition to the free content, a round-up of resources for remote D&D play – many of which are also free – can be found here: https://dnd.wizards.com/remote/online_tools.
