Astral Tabletop Campaing Setup

Hi all! Just wanted to share pics of my babies with the community, you know how proud fathers are :smiley:

Recently I’ve started to work in a port of BoB to Astral Tabletop since I prefer to play there, it feels more immersive like I’m around the table with the old gang, instead of in a web site running IE in the nineties…

I’ve finished the character sheets and now I’m almost done with the main map, so I wanted to share with you:

The ashen paper and the burning effect are controlled procedurally (I’m using Blender 3D to create the scene), so it’s not realistic, but it’s easy to control the direction. Maybe in the end I’ll try just to create masks in photoshop and call it a day, but right now I’m pretty excited to experiment with this.

Later I’ll post some pics of the actions and how the sheets are working in Astral Tabletop, I still have to find a good solution for the clocks, unfortunately there is not a easy way to do them like in Roll20.

Tell me what you think, make suggestions and critics, I’m planning to release the templates as a community creation, so if @stras and the publishers agree everyone can have access to them.

Have a great day everyone!

That’s it!

All character sheets are done. Map is done too, added some more effects to the charred lands as a final touch. Next month our Legion desperate retreat to Skydagger Keep begans, so wish us luck!

Nice. Whenever one of these VTTs make clocks and character sheets easy I’m ready to switch :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve struggle a bit to find a solution and the best one was to put the “empty clock” in the map level and activate the lock on it. After that I just use the paint tool to fill in the spaces when needed. You can even use the effects brush to add drama:

The only issue is that Astral does not have an eraser tool, just a brush one, so when you want to delete you lose all your strokes. What you can do is log with a second account and use the char as a “Clockmaker” (I’ve even made the char invisible AND remove it from the map). When you delete his brush strokes all others are preserved. Not the best solution, but easy to live with…
