Foundry is an up-and-coming VTT created by a passionate and communicative development team (of one), which 5etools highly recommends as a modern alternative to Roll20. Our Foundry module, Plutonium, is currently available for beta testing to Patrons, and will be made publicly accessible some time after Foundry (itself in Beta) is released. An overview of the features available can be found below. To those familiar with our now-deprecated Roll20 script, betteR20, we aim to expand on the feature set provided therein, while improving the user experience.
The various features have their own pages to funnel questions and FAQs for those features and their use and to track specific changes in those features.
Each table row can be sorted by clicking upon the arrows nearest it's heading. Please reference the key follow this table for more help.

Add-on Modules for FoundryVTT with similar or overlapping features
The sections below follow the structure of [Inciting Module] [Reason as to why it is advised against]
- Beyond20 (Naming the tab breaks Beyond20)
- MyTab (Redundant feature, breaks Rivet)
- OneJournal and Forien's Quest Log (The Journal Embed setting should be disabled to be able to use any of those modules)
- Babele (Prone to cause errors when importing, mainly lack of images and special effects.)
- Tool Proficiencies for 5e (Duplication of function, causes failure to load.)
- Drag Upload (Get Over Here!) (Incompatibility with the Art Repo. Dragging from the Art Repo triggers Drag Upload and creates an unwanted link to the source.)
- PopOut! - Sheet Popout Button
- Metric System - Metric Converter
- D&D Beyond Importer - Importing (unless you have homebrew/custom items on D&D Beyond [which you can convert for 5eTools])
