Battlegrounds: RPG Edition is a software that breaks down geographical barriers, by letting you play your favorite RPG with friends who live far away. It also enables you to play more games than you might otherwise be able to.
For example, if your local friends aren't interested in a particular game you want to play, BRPG enables you to play that game with an online buddy, even if that person lives halfway around the world.
BRPG provides you with all the tools you need to conduct a role-playing session: a battlemap - with an optional hexgrid or square grid - on which to place and move your digital miniatures and props, a virtual dice roller with both standard and polyhedral dice, chat functions, and a Fog-of-War feature that lets you gradually reveal the game map as the players explore.
BRPG provides the game engine, and you provide the game maps and digital minis (see the Links & Resources page for where you can download free high-quality maps and digital minis).
