Battlegrounds: RPG Edition (BRPG) 1.4i

BRPG is a game engine that 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, text chat functions, and a Fog-of-War feature that lets you gradually reveal the game map as the players explore. BRPG can be played online with up to 15 players plus the Game Master. It can also be used offline, with a projector or HDTV, to enhance face-to-face game sessions.

Battlegrounds is easy to use, cross-platform (Mac OS X and Windows), and supports roleplaying in any genre and with any RPG rules system.

More recent versions of the software are often available on the publisher's site, as betas. Feedback and new feature ideas are welcome on the site's forums.

Mac Games Rating duga (8/29/2006 - version 1.0 RC2)
Cool concept for table-top gamers (if you want a computer RPG go play WoW or NWN), but rather poorly implemented. It's not just rough around the edges, it generally poorly done. Apparently it's "easier" to invent an entirely new way to use a computer program rather than rely on those "hard" old ways. So, no menu bar - instead you click on the big "B" in the map window. Huh? And there is a chart window you can open that first opens a dialog that explains the easy was to close the chart window - double-click on it, of course! Those old-fangled close boxes must be too hard to use. It's also very model, doesn't seem to use drag-and-drop (tip: requiring me to use a numeric keypad to move things is a pain on a laptop. Dragging is not.), etc. Overall very disappointing. Had it been better done I might have been tempted to purchase it.

I found it slow and clunky..I'll stick to pen and paper.
Mac Games Rating Dittotb (7/7/2006 - version 1.0 RC)
This is not a game. This is a pen and paper rpg enhancement. And what an enhancement. The Interface is easy to use. The features are well done. The support from the company is fantastic. The community is helpful and knowledgeable. For anyone who wants to play an rpg over the net or enhance their face-to-face games this is the puppy to go with.
Mac Games Rating GMBazUK (6/26/2006 - version 1.0 RC)
If you love roleplaying games like DnD and want to enhanced your gaming experience on or offline, you need Battlegrounds. I own several other programs but Battlegrounds is the only one which I have found to offer a truely universal gaming interface, for playing any roleplaying system with the added bonus of audio etc... if you need it - I love it.
