The highly regarded (Best Game, Product of the YEar) Zweihander has signed an exclusive deal with the virtual tabletop Roll20. The agreement covers all Zweihander d100 tabletop RPGs as well.
It’s good news for Zweihander fans on Roll20 but not so good for the leading alternative Fantasy Grounds and challenger Astral Tabletop.
Daniel Fox, AMP’s Executive Creative Director, Games told press;
One of the key challenges modern audiences face is which virtual tabletop (VTT) to use when playing tabletop RPGs online.”
While other VTTs have their own unique advantages, the intuitiveness, flexibility, and user-friendly interface that Roll20 offers simply can’t be beat. The release of the ZWEIHÄNDER RPG Compendium is a perfect complement to the Roll20 Spotlight program. The future of VTT gameplay rests in Roll20’s capable hands, and I am excited for our partnership with them.”
The deal also means that Andrews McMeel Publishing will develop more Zweihander RPG supplements and other yet-to-be-published games (or announced) for Roll20.
Zewihander’s creator, Daniel D Fox, joined Andrews McMeel in May 2020 as the publisher moved into the RPG market.
