As the COVID-19 lockdown hit Astral Tabletop was one of the first to step forward and give gamers freebies.
The virtual tabletop is an especially valuable space to do this as it’s their browser-based software that enables roleplayers to share maps, stats and dice rolls together.
It’s not been easy for Astral, though. I’ve seen updates coming through their Discord servers at all hours to share news of more capacity, recoding to cope better with the surge in demand. They’ve clearly been working hard.
While the system is now entirely free, it’s also an excellent time to pay, if you can as there’s now a juicy discount code. At the bottom of an update about extending the free service through May, Astral noted;
We have seen an incredible amount of new GMs and players over the past month and have been overwhelmed by your support and feedback. If you are enjoying Astral and are in a position to help us offset our server costs at this time, then we are offering a 30% discount on annual subscription plans purchased before the end of May. Use the promo code PLAYATHOME during checkout to get a year of Astral Pro (originally $99.99) for just $70.
If you can’t pay right now, then the Pro features Astral offers are free until the end of May.
The Pro features add in 12,000+ titles, tokens and sounds along with the weather and advanced special effects. You can save up to 20 of your most frequent actions to save them as quick access and 20GB of storage.
You can sign up for Pro at the pricing section of their site. Don’t forget the discount code.
