Can’t wait for the D&D Virtual Table? Try Virtual Daivve NOW!

So you think the official D&D Virtual Table looks cool..? Bummed that you’re not in the beta testing of it? Worried it’ll take forever and a day for it to get released? Don’t wait! Check out a new program that honestly, looks 80% like D&D:VT. It’s called Virtual Daivve (pronounced Dave).

We’ve seen Gametable before. I’m a huge fan of it. A community member took the code for GT and modified it to be specifically used with 4th edition D&D. You can do just about everything that the screens show for the D&D:VT AND more. In VD you can:

  • Set initiative order
  • Have dice macros for everyone
  • See current health above the pogs
  • Set status conditions with icons on pogs
  • List important character info (AC, W, F, R, and more) on each pog
  • STREAM MP3S TO YOUR PLAYERS! (sounds effects, background music)
  • Have Fog of War effects

Ya know what? I’m not going to post screens of the program. Look at any post I’ve done here on Gametable for an idea of its look. Trust me. If you play 4e D&D online and want to use something like the D&D Virtual Table now, hit up Virtual Daivve. The mp3 streaming is available in the latest dev version, not the newest stable release.

    I’ve been using this application and it’s predecessors for 2+ years, and my groups LOVE them. Many thumbs up!

    Do you have a download mirror you could share of Virtual Daivve? The site seems to have gone down.

    Cheers!
