Roll20 Announces A New Set Of Major Content Updates

Roll20 revealed over the weekend that they have implemented a new set of major content updates into their service. We have some of the details below, and you can read the full implementation on their blog. But the shorthand version is that multiple games under their service have been given a bit of an upgrade as to how they operate, as well as new content added from multiple titles across the board including D&D, Starfinder, Pathfinder, Alien, Warhammer, Tome of Beasts 2, Call of Cthulhu, and more. The updates should go into effect for players once they open the service.

Roll20 hosts a number of popular tabletop RPGs on their service.
