Roll20 Team
We are excited to share that Roll20 has acquired Demiplane! Combining Demiplane's best-in-class character-building solution with the world's most popular virtual tabletop paves the way for integrating the two platforms and unlocking greater in-person and online gameplay options for the over 15 million players, game masters, and game publishers we serve. For more details, including a video interview with Roll20’s Ankit Lal and Demiplane’s Peter Romenesko and an FAQ, visit our Blog . We’re beyond excited to start working together and encourage you to help shape the future of how our platforms integrate by completing a short survey (linked in the blog).
Fun
I tried the survey link in multiple different browsers on Windows and Android, and it doesn't load on any of them :/  It's complaining about a McAfee security certificate.

Interesting, but I'll withhold judgement to see what developes as Roll20 tends to not fully cross develope the platforms they aquire from my point of view, take DriveThruRPG for example...  It just seems to make the company bigger with smallish benefits to us here on Roll20 who also use the other bought companies honestly. I still have to buy maps that I already bought over there, most of the Drive Through stuff has not been moved over to Roll20.  Pathfinder Infinate does not have a lot of stuff in Roll20 and I suspect one would have to double buy it just like  DriveThruRPG. I've been on Demi since day 1 (just like Roll20 here mostly) and its a nice system, and put a lot of money into it.  Highly suspect I will have to triple buy things here on Roll20 now if things go the way they have been for Paizo products and a lot will not be crossed over as usual. So Potential for crossing over character sheets, BUT if they are not building them kind of the same way with tech it will be another "we have to change X so Y fits into this so it will be Z number of months (years) to intigrate said sheets one might think  Unless they started knowing this a year ago for the Roll20 revamp thing going on. ALLL the various platform books be they Modules, Adventure Paths and rule books, again if I bought em over in demi they should just give them here for full access here, and Vise Vera, but again one might have to double or triple dip buying stuff, again.!!!  No thank you!! Do this RIGHT Roll20 and its a good move, do it your usual way and this will not help out the average Roll20 gamer here. The ball is in your court Rol20, are you just going to gobble up companies like other big companies with less than stellar results for us little people, or will you make OUR main hobby here thee best it can be?

Hey Tom, We're in discussions with publishers to seek permission to offer free unlocks of content across Roll20 and Demiplane. We have, I'm happy to report, already received permission from Paizo to grant you the Demiplane version of Roll20 purchases for free (and vice versa). We’re still working out the right mechanism to unlock that cross-platform access, so stay tuned: we’ll announce more details once we’re closer to making it a reality. Re: your other points: please do make sure to fill out the survey linked in the blog so your top priorities for integration are considered.

Hi Loren,  I'm so sorry you're having this frustrating experience. We haven't been able to reproduce the error on our end - has opening in an incognito window helped?

Hi Loren,  I'm so sorry you're having this frustrating experience. We haven't been able to reproduce the error on our end - has opening in an incognito window helped?  I tried that too, no luck :(  I also made sure I had all extensions disabled, so I don't know what's going on...
They have not even finished the Dungeonscrawl Integration! As of now it is NOT possible to play in Roll20 while at the same time building the map to explore on Dungeonscrawl! Also you still have to buy Dungeonscrawl PRO even if you have Roll20 PRO Subscription...

How soon can we get THE MURDERWORLD THAT TIME FORGOT in the Roll20 adventure pack? Do Publishers licensing agreements also get shared?  Seems places like Disney/Marvel with smaller TTRPG bases would welcome this to market their new products

Will the new DnD Character sheet be integrated with Demiplane in any way?
