      MapTool vs Roll20
      pros, cons and recent comments
      It's a virtual tabletop, and it's multiplayer online. It does dice rolls. It supports displaying the vision of the characters, showing which parts of the map are visible, and which are hidden.

      ericwaters Although it's not the most intuitive VTT it there, MapTools is a mature and stable choice. It's free (and Open Source), has loads of features, an active development team, and a lot of community content as well. There's no voice/video chat, but that's what Discord is for.

      Fantasy Grounds vs Roll20
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Ugotsta Feature-wise and performance-wise, very similar to Roll20. Fantasy Grounds has advanced automation and is available through Steam which makes it a little more accessible to Steam users.

      Foundry Virtual Tabletop vs Roll20
      pros, cons and recent comments
      danielmichel It's a one-time purchase for the Game Master, then you have it for life. Has all the features that Roll20 arbitrarily locks away plus a seemingly infinite amount of amazing add-ons thanks to a very active community.
