D&D Beyond (DDB) is the official digital toolset and game companion for Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition.[3] It hosts online versions of the official Dungeons & Dragons fifth edition books, including rulebooks, adventure modules, and other supplements, as well as digital tools including a character builder, digital character sheets, sortable and filterable monster and spell listings, an encounter builders,[2] and an overlay Twitch extension.[8] In addition, the site also allows users to create and add custom homebrew content and publishes original video, stream, and article content, including staff interviews, content previews and tie-ins, and development updates.[2]

D&D Beyond was originally operated by Curse LLC. Originally a subsidiary to Twitch, Curse and all of its media assets, including D&D Beyond, were acquired by Fandom, Inc. in late 2018.[4] In April 2022, it was announced that Hasbro, Inc. had agreed to acquire D&D Beyond for $146.3 million in cash, and was expected to be absorbed into Hasbro’s Wizards of the Coast division, which controls Dungeons & Dragons. The deal was expected to close in the second or third quarter of 2022.[5]

Since January 2018, D&D Beyond has maintained an ongoing partnership with Critical Role Productions LLC.[9] As part of the partnership, D&D Beyond is a frequent sponsor of Critical Role,[10] and on the website, homebrew content created by Matthew Mercer, such as the Gunslinger and Blood Hunter, have been added under a "Critical Role" content category.[9]

D&D Beyond Official Theme[]

Sam Riegel composed a jingle for D&D Beyond, in the style of a 80's commercial ad, that he sang a cappella during the announcements in "Hush" (2x07).[18] With the company's endorsement, he came back in "Stalker in the Swamp" (2x21) with a fully animated and orchestrated version of the jingle.[19][20]

  • Sam revealed that the actual orchestrated jingle contains 12 tracks of him at the end doing harmonies as well as vocal drum tracks.[21]
  • Sam covered his own song in "Uthodurn" (2x73), but he had re-written the lyrics in reference to Fjord.[22]
  • Ashley Johnson also sang the jingle a cappella during the announcements in "Dark Waters" (2x98).[23]
