It's impossible for us to ignore what is currently happening across the world. Together as a team, we've discussed our thoughts and feelings on how COVID-19 has been affecting people all over the globe. Through these discussions, we've expressed the desire to help where we can for a community that has been supportive and encouraging to us.
Gaming is a social hobby and it's no question COVID-19 is having an effect on how we play together. As conventions are cancelled and personal groups reconsider meeting up for their weekly games, it can be difficult to keep the campaign going.
After many thoughtful conversations, we are opening up all of Astral's paid features so that everyone can safely play their favorite tabletop roleplaying games, together and without restriction. Until the end of April, all new and existing Astral accounts will be upgraded to Pro, no strings attached.
If you're a paid user, your account has already been credited with two free months as a thank you for being a dedicated supporter of Astral. Your next statement will reflect the credits granted. We hope this is one less bill to worry about.
Check out the notes below for the changes and fixes that went out this week.
We continue to address reported issues and requests. As always, we are very interested in your feedback.
A few more quality-of-life requests from the community were addressed this week.
Thank you to everyone who reported issues this week. The team drove some menacing mummies out of town for good.
We're continuing to work on the cleanup of the character sheet and have made significant progress this week. Beta users should expect the new character sheet to roll out early next week. We are very excited to hear your thoughts and feedback!
Character sheets have been simplified in order to highlight what's important.
While building, you can quickly edit stats and actions from the sidebar.
Many aspects of the sheet were reconsidered in order to improve usability.
The info tab was completely removed in favor for more accessible menus.
The first round of changes to the character sheet will simplify the interface significantly and address many of the suggestions the community has made.
After the initial roll out, we will be working to improve interacting with actions and stats on the sheet itself. There is much more to come for character sheets, so stay tuned.
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.
Thanks for reading and for being a dedicated Astralnaut! We look forward to bringing you more updates from the Astral Plane.
