Creative Ways to Play Dungeons and Dragons On Zoom and Discord

Dungeons and Dragons, D&D, DND

Playing Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) comes in different creative ways- from tabletop gaming to virtual. In normal D&D Sessions, you have a tabletop and you can roll your D20 where everyone can see it. Meanwhile, you can still play D&D by interacting virtually.

Two of the most popular and creative online applications are Zoom and Discord.

Zoom is a video conferencing platform that allows users to communicate and collaborate remotely. On the other hand, Discord is a chat and voice communication platform that is popular among gamers and can be used to host virtual D&D sessions.

There are many creative ways to play D&D on Zoom and Discord, including:

  1. Use virtual backgrounds and props to create a more immersive experience.
  2. Use Discord’s voice channels to simulate in-game movement and sound effects.
  3. Utilize the shared screen feature on Zoom to display maps, character sheets, and other important information.
  4. Use roll20 or similar virtual tabletop software to play the game with a grid and miniatures.
  5. Create and use custom character sheets, tokens and macros to streamline gameplay.
  6. Use breakout rooms on Zoom to simulate different locations or scenes.
  7. Encourage players to use webcams to add a visual creative element to the game.
  8. Utilize music and sound effects to set the mood and atmosphere of the game.
  9. Use the built-in dice rolling feature on Discord or Roll20 to keep track of rolls.
  10. Have players submit photos of their characters to use during gameplay.

These are just a few examples, but the possibilities are endless when it comes to playing D&D on Zoom and Discord. It’s all about getting creative and finding ways to make the experience as immersive and engaging as possible.

Whether through Zoom, Discord or around a tabletop, D&D creates a deep bond among group members. Some consider this game as a creative escape and where they can process their emotions while others find it as an enjoyable hobby to spend their free time on.
