Drag & Drop Monsters, Live Now!

It’s here! Drag and Drop Characters for Dungeons & Dragons (5e SRD) are ready for action, and just in time for Halloween too.

Setup encounters in seconds. Take on legendary dragons, battle spell-heavy Archmages, and delve through dark dungeons fighting wave after wave of Goblins. Best of all, this feature is free for all users of Astral!

Get a quick and exciting overview of this brand new feature below (along with a look at how you can integrate Astral with D&D Beyond courtesy of Beyond20.)

This is just the first step for Drag and Drop Characters. We can support virtually any of your favorite game systems. If you have a suggestion for what you would like to see next, please leave a suggestion or vote on the support forums.

Future Updates, Coming Each Monday

For the past year, we have been adamant about delivering at least one update each week. Typically we have done this on a Friday. Starting next week, we are going to begin releasing new updates every Monday. This allows us to keep features in beta just a little bit longer so we can ensure the quality of each update is up to our community’s standards.

We still have a lot of work planned and we love hearing your feedback. As always, please let us know your thoughts and suggestions using the support forums.

📣 We're Listening

We're continuing to look at the forums for feature requests, support tickets, and Discord to hear what you all have to say. Please don't hesitate to reach out and voice your feedback. Our table always has an open seat, let us know what you think.

That's all for now!

Thanks for reading and for being a dedicated Astralnaut! We look forward to bringing you more updates from the Astral Plane.
