Greetings Gamers!

Welcome to my favorite weekend of the year, it’s Roll20CON time…

Community Highlights

Roll20CON - Supporting Cybersmile!

Roll20CON officially begins tomorrow, but you can start supporting our charity now! Cybersmile, the international non-profit supporting victims of cyberbullying – is our official charitable partner for Roll20CON and we couldn’t be more pleased.

At its foundation, Cybersmile is rooted in the idea of safe spaces online for all and it was that core value that drew us to this group. Their continued efforts to promote diversity and inclusion in the digital space align perfectly with the vision and goals for this convention.

Donate to Cybersmile during Roll20CON and as a reward for your good deed, every Roll20 user who donates any amount during the event will receive a Roll20CON Exclusive Art Pack, featuring tokens & tiles from some of our Marketplace creators.

Charity Game with Lead Dev Steve K.

During Roll20CON Lead Developer Steve K. will be exercising his horror game GMing skills via Roll20 on Sunday, June 25th at 2pm Pacific – and we’re inviting the 10 highest donating users to play too!

See this forum post to learn more!

Our new developers are hacking away at bugs and doing a great job. I expect we’ll see a steady influx of bug fixes over the course of this next quarter as the new dev become more comfortable in the code base. The compendium revamp is nearing the end of development. Check out the Dev talk at 8:30 PT on Saturday to hear more about that and other features the Dev Team thinks you might not have heard about. -Steve

Tarokka Deck from Wizards of the Coast

Learn what fortunes await you with this gaming accessory for Ravenloft. The High, Common, and Complete Tarokka Decks are included in this addon.

If you’re playing Curse of Strahd or playing a homebrew campaign in the cursed land of Barovia, you’ll want to get your hands on the tarokka deck, a 54-card adventure supplement. By using the tarokka deck to randomize locations within the adventure, Dungeon Masters can customize each party’s exploration of Barovia.


That’s all for this week! Please join us tomorrow at 10am Pacific as we kick off Roll20CON on Twitch!
