I'm a beginner, but I've played other RPGs before. I travel a lot so I can't really dedicate myself to a local group. Are there places to play campaigns online? Is this even feasible?

Edit: To be more clear, I am looking for groups that play online via email or something like that.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @SevenSidedDie - I am looking specifically for groups that play online. Maybe there is a website for this sort of thing, for example. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 19, 2015 at 19:15

    \$\begingroup\$ Online and in-person are both covered in the answers there. What I'm unsure of is whether we need two questions, one for in-person and one for online. Possibly, possibly not, so we'll see how the voting on the possible duplicate turns out. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 19, 2015 at 19:19

I have been playing campaigns in Roll20 for two years now and it works pretty well for me. It's mostly system-agnostic. Their 2014 report shows that the most popular systems are D&D/Pathfinder (PF, 5E, 3.5, 4E, AD&D, OD&D in that order), Star Wars, Dark Heresy, Shadowrun, GURPS, Dungeon World, FATE, etc.
