New Features

  • Fight the horde of noise monsters by utilizing our 'Push to Talk' (PTT) feature, now live across all Adventure Portals. Press and hold Spacebar to activate PTT when you're focused on your video screen.

New Features

  • Are you the rogue getting pushed to the front of the party while everyone follows 30 feet behind? Do you mumble "I check for traps" in your sleep and wake up in a cold sweat?

  • Users can now Roll Advantage or disadvantage from chat by adding “-a” or “-d” after the roll.

New Features

  • Implemented Game Master screen sharing! As a GM, you can now easily share visuals with other members of your Adventure Portal, from maps to resource material and everything in-between! 
  • Screen Sharing is now active across all Adventure Portals. To take advantage of this new feature, find the button in the lower-left portion of your Video or Audio chat screen
  • Who let the GIFs out? We did - and now you can, too! Select the "GIF" icon in your chat bar to unleash GIFs of your choosing upon your unsuspecting party members.
  • Added in the ability to Invite your friends while creating a new portal, instead of having to wait to do so afterwards. 
  • Profile Avatars: You can now upload profile and character avatars within Demiplane! Update your character's avatar within a Portal's settings menu - each of your Portals can hold a unique image! Update your broader profile by selecting your current avatar in the top-right corner of the screen and then select the edit icon over your username (it looks like a pencil).
  • New Dice Commands: Live dangerously and roll dice directly from chat! Type'/r' before a dice command (/r 1d4) or '/f' before the name of a favorite roll (/f longsword) to use these commands. Check out our handy dice rolling guide to learn more.

  • Users should no longer lose video connection when resizing their window too small.
  • Overall cleanup of the account creation flow.
  • A series of styling updates across the app to accommodate the wide-range of resolutions and screen dimensions.

New Features

  • Whisper: Whisper allows you to quickly pull aside one of your players into a private video chat where you can share secrets that only they would know! More than one successful Perception roll? Whisper also allows you to invite others to this secret portal. This new feature is enabled whenever a Game Master launches an Adventure and uses Demiplane's video or voice chat.
  • We've introduced our beta Dice Roller into Adventure Portals with this release. You can use the visual roller, or you can leverage the Command Prompt to enter specific commands. This marks the first step of this feature. Our Dice Command guide can be found here.
