Roll20 (www.Roll20.net) is a new virtual tabletop that runs solely within your web browser, is built on HTML5, is full of awesome, and is currently in open beta.  It focuses less on mechanics and more on camraderie than other tables. But don’t take my word for it, listen up as I mini-interview its creators! You can also stalk them online via twitter @Roll20App and also on Google+.
