Astral Tabletop is a DriveThruRPG backed alternative to Roll20. The whole virtual tabletop scene it getting competitive as new companies try and carve out a niche and try new things.
Shiny new tech that makes it easier to enjoy tabletop roleplaying over the internet is undoubtedly one way to attract players and grow your market share. Discounting via coupons and special offers is another. Astral is trying both.
Right now, thanks to the Astral & Gen Con offer, all free accounts have the features of Astral Pro. That means if you’re not getting to go to Gen Con, and you’re stuck behind the keyboard as usual, you can at least see what an Astral upgrade could be like.
Astral Tabletop coupon
What’s even better is the time-limited coupon Astral have issued. If you can commit to an Astral Pro account before the end of the weekend, then use the code
GENCON2019, and you’ll get 20% off the annual subscription. That’s a couple of months for free.
I think there’s a bit of time pressure there. We only have from August 1st to August 4th to grab a free account, unless you have one already, enjoy the temporary upgrade to Pro and decide whether or not we can afford the $8.25 a month for the Pro option. (It’s $12.99 a month for the Pro+ account – for professional GMs).
You can read up on the offer at Astral.
