Welcome Home

Happy Friday, everyone! We have a couple big updates for you this week.

You may have already noticed the new “Home” button on your sidebar. We are incredibly excited to release this feature for everyone and even more excited to implement some of the requests we’ve been hearing from you all.

On your new home screen you’ll find two (free) ready-to-play adventures for Pathfinder Second Edition and for Scarred Lands (OGL/D&D 5th Edition compatible) -- give them a try this weekend!

If you’ve been waiting on official content from your favorite publishers, we have some exciting news for you. In addition to the adventures released today, Astral is working to release official adventures for Star Trek, Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition, Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of, Carbon 2185, and lots more.

If you’re a publisher and want to digitize your adventures for play on Astral, get in touch with us at support@astraltabletop.com.

Embedded Rolls In Beta

In addition to the changes in roll syntax last week, we made additional improvements that let you “embed” dice rolls.

For example:

Prior to this change, the above rolls would have thrown errors as it was not possible to make calculations on a roll before it was rolled. The above examples should now all work in beta!

We are actively monitoring and listening to your feedback, so if you’re a beta user, please let us know what you think or if you run into any issues.

Only a Couple Weeks Left

All the amazing benefits of Pro are still free until the end of the month. If you are enjoying Astral and are in a position to help us offset our server costs at this time, then we are offering a 30% discount on annual subscription plans purchased before the end of May. Use the promo code PLAYATHOME during checkout to get a year of Astral Pro (originally $99.99) for just $70.

As always, thanks for being an Astralnaut. Game on!
