Once upon a time, it took piles of heavy rulebooks, a hefty supply of well-sharpened pencils, bags of dice, and a sea of dog-eared paper scraps to enjoy most tabletop RPG sessions. Thankfully, times have changed, and the marvels of modern techno-wizardry make it a lot easier to get the dungeon spelunking underway.
