Use Foundry?

No? Well, you should! Foundry is a modernized, better-than replacement for Roll20, which prioritizes modding support. It is the 5etools platform of choice for VTT integrations.

To install the Plutonium module, and start using all of 5etools' content in your game, paste the manifest URL[current/v11/v10] into your Foundry server's module installer. See the Plutonium Features page for an overview of the functionality the module provides.

You can also install the Rivet browser extension (Chrome/Firefox) to import content from the site with a single click.

Use Roll20?

Install Roll20 Enhancement Suite and Tampermonkey (Chrome/Firefox), and get the betteR20 script using this link.

Check the wiki for an installation guide, and for information on how to use the script.

Where's my stuff? There's no account system. Everything is stored in cookies. If you wipe those, or close your incognito window, it's gone forever. You can download your data for safekeeping via the Settings menu.

Anything else I should know? Hold SHIFT when hovering to lock a window in place. Everything has tooltips. You will forever be a DM.


You can host a copy of 5etools on anything that can run a basic webserver—examples include your computer, your phone, a Raspberry Pi, or a free EC2/Compute Engine instance. Download the files, copy them into your server's root directory, and enjoy!
