Have you guys checked out Tabletop Simulator yet?

Me and a group of about 6 people meet once a week for a session of Pathfinder and one of them bought this on a whim and it looks like it has potential for being used for such a thing where you don't necessarily have to meet in person to play.

Its basically a sandbox physics engine with tabletop games as the focus. You can play checkers, chess, go, tabletop RPGs (with pieces available to construct dungeons and several enemy figurines), and various types of card games. There is even an option to flip the table and send things flying away. There are also various styles of tables in it you can use as well as admin controls to prevent griefing. Its early access but apparently Steam Workshop is coming for it. I'm looking forward to it being updated with more features for tabletop RPGs.

Nope, I assumed it was just a mini casino type game.

Copyright and trademark may be an issue with custom workshop games, but I'm ready to play games like Smonopoly and polkamon.

Holy f*** I didn't know this was a thing. This would make setting up online DnD games so sexy.

Did the official online D&D tabletop thing ever come out? I know they were talking about making one but I cancelled my Insider subscription and stopped checking up on it.

No, I meant, that's what I thought it was prior to reading your description.

I'm having so many brain fails today. X_X

I bought the 4 pack and gave one to myself and 3 copies to the other members of our group who didn't have it yet. We're going to test it out this weekend and see how viable it is for DnD/Pathfinder.
