Almost every month there is a new craze of another platform helping to bring TTPRG players together, and each one usually has something specific that sets them apart. Some people prefer heavy VTT, or a ton of Fog of War. Me, I want to see the people I’m playing with. I want to feel like I’m in the same room, even if we are on another continent. I’ve always leaned more towards the Theater of the Mind than heavily pre-planned maps and dioramas.
When I saw Role on Kickstarter in June of 2020 I knew I had to back it. The focus was on video connection and social interaction, which is really all I want. When I got early access as a backer I loved the easy-to-understand interface and how quickly we could dive into a session.
As Vast Grimm was developing, I started playtesting there, even creating a Vast Grimm character template. Then in December of 2021 I reached out to Elle (President & CEO of Role) about seeing where Vast Grimm could go on the platform and everything started falling into place.
Today I am thrilled to announce that Vast Grimm is live on the Role marketplace!!!! What does that mean? And what can it do for you? First, it is free to have an account on Role, and we have 2 FREE adventures, 5 pre-gen characters, and quickstart rules available to anyone who wants to start a game! If you’re new to Vast Grimm and like the taste it leaves in your mouth, you can snag the core rulebook as a DRM-Free downloadable PDF as well as the core token/map pack.
Take a coupe of minutes and let me show you just how easy it can be to play on Role.
With all the options out there, this may not be the one for you, but with it being absolutely free it is worth playing a few sessions there. I know that's where I will be playing my regular games when not sitting around a table in person.
