We've been using rolz to facilitate our Dungeons & Dragons games. I weeded through a lot of stuff while looking for a light, bare bones utility for dice, and this is one of the most functional in-browser tools I've come across. If you're needing something similar, give it a try. If you have your own recommendations, feel free to post them below.

Nice! For Fantasy Flight stuff, they have an excellent Star Wars dice app here: https://www.fantasyf...-wars-dice-app/

 

We don't use it so much since everybody bought a grip of dice, but it's a good alternative if you want to travel light.

There's Tabletop Simulator, complete with table-flipping action. Not enough tabletop RPG stuff, but they're workin' on it.

Tabletop Simulator does a good job with dice, maps, miniatures, et cetera, but if you don't need the graphical interface or physics-based interactions, it gets cumbersome fairly easily. The big selling point for me was, for the price, you can pick up a significant amount of good games for free via the community workshop. I'll probably reevaluate it's use for RPGs at some point later this year. I'd really like the fog of war tool to be more user friendly.
