About Battlegrounds (aka BRPG)
Battlegrounds is a commercially-sold virtual tabletop program that allows people to play role playing games (and now boardgames, wargames, card games, and dice games!) in real-time over the Internet (peer-to-peer), on a LAN, or offline. Battlegrounds is also available via monthly subscriptions, so users have the option to either buy or "rent" licenses.

Features (from publisher's website)

• Easy to learn and use

• Cross-platform (Windows & Mac OS X)

• Supports play in any genre, with any RPG rules system

• In addition to RPGs, Battlegrounds can also be used to play many boardgames & wargames

• The perfect solution for gaming groups where one or more members have moved away

• Full-screen maps, high-resolution tokens, and a user interface that hides away when you don’t need it, to avoid on-screen clutter and heighten the immersion factor

• Easily add your own artwork and maps to the program

• Display visual aids and play music or sound effects to enhance the mood

• Dynamic Fog-of-War feature automatically reveals the map as the party explores, taking into account light sources and any special vision the characters may have

• An incredibly-powerful dice roller that supports most RPG game mechanics, yet requires absolutely no scripting

• Built-in text chat with support for group or private chat, in-character and out-of-character chat, chat aliases, chat macros, an exportable Chat Log, and more

• A highly-configurable Turn Sequencer ensures that everyone always knows whose turn it is (or if their turn is coming up), and also keeps track of important character stats

• Support for card decks, including custom card deck creation

• A token-swapping feature lets you easily switch token poses (standing, prone, mounted, etc), or “flip” virtual counters

• Pop-up character portraits, range measuring, a full assortment of drawing tools, and much more round out the feature set

• Ideal for use with a projector or HDTV in face-to-face game sessions

• Use Battlegrounds to generate awesome visuals for your play-by-post or play-by-email games

• If you already use a mapping program like Dundjinni or Campaign Cartographer, you can save time and money by not having to print out your large, full-color battlemaps

• A developer who listens to user feedback, and a helpful, friendly, and rapidly-growing user community

• A free, full-featured Demo is available for download, so you can try out the software before you buy

• Many free artpacks are available for download, and commercial artpacks are available to further enhance your games

• Many free digital game conversions are available for download, and a growing selection of commercial Game Boxes are also available
