The fun doesn’t stop when running your Adventures using your sweet, buttery Game Master voice and slick new video chat. If you want to add some more fun into the mix with custom details about your Adventure, keep your players on course, or open your Portal for matchmaking, check out these guides below!
Customizing Your Adventure Portal
You can customize your Portal to be an extension of your Adventure to make a more immersive experience. All Portal customizations listed below are managed in the “Portal Settings” menu, which is located in the top-right corner of your Portal on desktop or the bottom-right corner of your screen on mobile.
- You can update a Portal’s “About” text as frequently as you’d like and use it as a summary for what happened during the last episode.
- If you need one or two more players to keep your party moving along, you’ll need to establish an “Adventure Style” to show other players how you like to play your games.
- Have a preferred Virtual Tabletop? Paste the invite or auto-join link in your settings, and Players will be able to “Quick Start” your VTT right from the Portal with the click of a button.
- Did your Party finally escape that forest and start making their way to the mountain? Select a new “Cover Image” for your Portal that shows a new environment just waiting to be explored!
Using & Sharing Your Journals & Tasks (Desktop only)
Journals are created each time a Game Master launches an Adventure. Once a journal is created, you can share your journal with some or all other Adventurers in your group. As the group's notetaker, sharing your journal is a great way to get credit for doing everyone else's homework - even your GM will love you for it! When the adventures really start blending together, use Demiplane's journal search feature to find out which Noble you were supposed to save (and which one you... weren't).
Some players and GMs love knowing where they're supposed to be going. Others prefer to keep things loose. The Task tool is a way for players and GMs alike to get maintain a punch list of whatever main or side quest the party is on. Portal members can close out tasks as completed or unsuccessful, as well as delete them if they're no longer relevant. I like to preset tasks for one-shots I run so everyone who comes into the portal has an idea of what they're going to be doing prior to our first get-together!
