Hail and well met!
We appreciate your interest and participation in the first phase of the DDB beta. We are committed to be your digital D&D source - a toolset that enhances the Dungeons & Dragons experience for all players. To pull that off, we need your help. Thanks for answering the call!
D&D is more popular now than ever, and it's no secret that the fifth edition of the Dungeons & Dragons game has seen incredible success. In my discussions with the D&D team, comments from other players, and my own experience, a common theme emerges - the comprehensive playtesting prior to launch made the difference. We want to walk that same path as we set out on this journey. If it isn't broke, you know?
This also informed our decision to open the beta to everyone. The more players we can get to engage and provide feedback the better!
The beta will have three major phases to focus testing on specific features prior to launch this summer:
- Phase 1 - Compendium, Listings, and Forums
- Phase 2 - Character Builder and Character Sheet
- Phase 3 - Homebrew Integration and Campaign Management
These are major features, but not everything that will be available at launch. Other content and features will also be pushed to beta status as they are ready to test.
We will provide updates as each phase goes live. Also look for more specifics and feature previews all along the way.
