New Weather and Visual FX Now In Beta ⛈️

Beta Team members are testing some new weather and FX features, as well as testing improvements to game creation. There’s something brewing in the woods, just in time for the change of seasons!

Fall leaves in the forest

Whether your party is exploring an enchanted grove or racing through back woods to escape the horrors found in an abandoned estate, your outdoor scenes are sure to benefit. These fall enhancements are designed to work well with our other weather and FX. Feel free to mix and match! Staff favorites include falling leaves with one of the following: Godrays, In the Clouds, Light Rain, Light Snow

Haunted Estate

Additionally, we’re testing some system-specific personalization options. Now when creating Call of Cthulhu games in Astral, you will receive a new customized lobby and portal page artwork selected from a pool of publisher provided art.

Support for PF1E and PF2E Has Landed

Earlier in June we updated the community about the availability of the Pathfinder First Edition bestiary. We’re glad to say that we’ve expanded that support to Pathfinder Second Edition.

That’s right, our ready-to-play content offering has expanded to include the entire base Iconic PC collections for both PF1E and PF2E, as well as 30 base creatures for each system. This is only the start, keep an eye out for more news!

New Free Quick-Start Game for Trinity Continuum

Last update we brought 3 new template characters for various Trinity Continuum rule-sets. Today we further expand on this option to include 5 new NPC template characters for Trinity Continuum rulesets, as well as a new Quick-Start game, A Quantum Leap. This game is available to all Astralnauts from your Vault homepage

A Quantum Leap

Expect more support in the near future! Astral is committed to continuing to expand its support for all systems.
