This week, Roll20 banned one such individual content maker for transphobic remarks they made on social media. Geek Native will not be repeating them, nor naming the individual, as Roll20 has not.
Roll20’s Director of Operations, @Dean_Bigbee shared the news on Twitter.
Roll20 is a virtual tabletop that allows people to play games like Dungeons & Dragons online, talking, rolling dice, looking at the same maps to mirror traditional gameplay.
The site also has a Marketplace where third-party creators can sell their content, tailored uniquely for the Roll20 platform, for other roleplayers to buy and enhance their games with. There are some big partner publishers such Wizards of the Coast, Paizo and Kobold Press but there are also much smaller partnerships where individuals sell their own material in the Marketplace.
The RPG community, by and large, has broadly welcomed Roll20’s decision. The platform has not always had it easy from online gamers and took heat last year after apparently some heavy-handed Reddit bans and being unwilling to sponsor some popular tabletop streamers.
