More font options for Text Tool (mockups attached)

Sheet Author
Compendium Curator
The Text Tool has five font options - Arial, Patrick Hand (handwriting), Contrail (a sort of military slanted sans-serif), Light (another comic sans style font), and Candal (an extended sans-serif). The glaring gap is a serif font. I would even just love if a system font was added, like Georgia or Times New Roman. We know that D&D and fantasy games are by far the most popular games on Roll20, and it seems odd that we can't use serif fonts with the text tool. Here's Georgia: Already it's feeling a little more "fantasy-ish".  If we were going to be more ambitious, I'd love to have a few more Google Fonts options added (I notice all the existing fonts other than Arial are google fonts, so I'm guessing they're fine to use). Here are some suggestions:  Pirata One Uncial Antique Caesar Dressing Metal Mania With the increasing popularity of streaming Roll20 games, I think that this kind of simple aesthetic improvement would be a great idea! And then, finally, if you really wanted to push the boat out I would love something like this: Here you would have a whole bunch of google fonts added, and they would be grouped by genre - sci-fi fonts, fantasy fonts, western fonts, etc. The second-level menu would show the font preview, because I always forget which font names go with which style.
