    MapTool vs Fantasy Grounds opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments

    It's free and really, it has all the shit Fantasy Ground has (except Dice Rolling --- I THINK), but that's what I'm wanted because we are also using Discord. Howerver, because of how good MapTools is, there is a high chance we are just doing it in this sofware. 10/10.

    Really good free tool to manage your tabletop game, doesn't come with with many predefined rulesets, but it's very flexible in creating these, so you can even play with your own ruleset
