Good evening friends,

It’s time for more from the Roll20 Devs… Huazzah!

Developer Spotlight

Hi rollers, here’s what’s new in the Tech Corner.

This week we’re furiously on-boarding new developers as our team has more than doubled since January. I expect this process is going to take several more weeks and so visible progress might be a little slow. We’ve got a lot of irons in the fire but our main focus is still the Compendium.

One thing you may have seen this week are tags for official games being run by our friends at the D&D Adventurer’s League and the Pathfinder Society (Coming Soon!).

This is the first step to better supporting large groups with related interests. We on the Development team are very interested in helping create a way for fans of a game system, or genre, or who speak a different language, or have unique needs, to have tools to organize and moderate Roll20 games for their own community. These tags are our first steps towards making that a reality.

Animals in Fantasy - A to M by Dsurion

Did you ever felt like a regular human knight was boring? How about a Koala Knight? Doesn’t that sound boring? Adorable? Awesome?

This set includes an animal/class for each letter from A to M (13 unique ones in total), 2 colors for each token (and a few extras for the Iguana Illusionist), plus full art Token and Portrait so you can pick whichever you like the most.
