[Updated] Dungeons & Dragons (DND) Beyond servers down, not working or characters screen not loading? You're not alone

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on November 4, 2022) follows:

Dungeons & Dragons (also known as ‘DND’) is an iconic role-playing game franchise. It has been around for decades in the form of classic board games and adaptations to digital platforms.

Players have multiple tools available that make it easy for them to set up games. For example, one of the most popular is DND Beyond, the official companion app for Dungeons & Dragons fifth edition.


However, currently many Dungeons & Dragons players are unable to access their characters through DND Beyond as it is down or not loading.

DND Beyond down or characters screen not loading

According to multiple reports, DND Beyond Character Interface is inaccessible or not working at the moment. This means that players cannot view or modify their previously created characters.

D&D Beyond Character Interface Down? (0945z)

Title pretty much says it all. Unable to load character data, but all else works (sourcbooks, stuff search, etc.). Or is this just a Germany/EU issue?

is anyone else experiencing issues with the character app in @DnDBeyond? i’ve refreshed the page so many times and tried opening it in a different tab and it’s still not working 🙁

Also, for some players, the platform is not loading any section.
