 PRESS RELEASE



GREEN BAY, WI, March 4, 2021 -- Demiplane, a new and innovative digital platform for tabletop RPG fans, today announced the appointment of Adam Bradford as the company’s Chief Development Officer. As Chief Development Officer, Adam works directly on Demiplane’s product and community development efforts and is responsible for the platform’s continued user growth and experience.

“Adam’s both a catalyst in the tabletop roleplaying space and a genuinely great person to be around. His passion for storytelling and unique personal experiences as a player, Game Master, product leader, and community builder make him a perfect addition to the Demiplane team,” said Demiplane Co-Founder & CEO, Peter Romenesko.

Prior to joining Demiplane, Adam founded D&D Beyond, the well-known digital toolset of the tabletop RPG staple Dungeons & Dragons, where he eventually assumed the role of VP of Tabletop for Fandom, who had acquired D&D Beyond in 2018. Prior to answering the call for adventure in the TTRPG industry, Adam spent a decade in the Defense, Aerospace and Medical industries working across a variety of roles.

“Peter and Travis have an incredible vision for the future of tabletop roleplaying, and Demiplane is the platform that’s going to help continue to evolve this genre,” said Adam Bradford. “I’m thrilled to join the company at this stage to help build such a unique platform, and I can’t wait for fans to see what’s in store.”

Demiplane is an ever-expanding gaming experience that brings fans of roleplaying games together on one convenient platform with high-quality tools at your fingertips—including player matchmaking, live and interactive video capabilities, shared journals, task tracking, group inventory, dice rolling, tipping, in-app rewards, player and Game Master ratings, other features that manage in-and-out-of-game logistics, and much more to come.

"We've been fans of Adam's work for years," said Demiplane Co-Founder & COO, Travis Frederick. "He has such a deep passion for the industry. We're excited to have him on our team as we carry out our mission of elevating the digital layer of tabletop gaming."

Right now the actual VTT part seems pretty bare bones. They seem to be pushing the DM and player matching aspect a lot more. Will have to see how this develops.

Sure, though not nearly as funny as his former employer buying out his new employer!
True. Life is funny that way:

I had a good friend who moved from India to take a job at a large (global) telecom company. Years into her employment (and rise) through the company - she was informed that her position was being moved to India - less than 10 miles from where she used to live.

It would actually not be a bad move from a business perspective. D&D beyond with a good VTT - Roll20, FantasyGrounds, Foundry etc. would be very, very unhappy!
Oh yeah, for sure. I think DDB with a solid, tested, set of social tools and VTT would quickly become the giant fish in the digital TTRPG pond.

There is no VTT...we've started with video, screensharing, voice, chat, and notes. But that's just a few months of effort and is the tip of the iceberg.

We'll be sharing much more in the weeks and months to come!

Thanks,

I guess I lump VTT as any medium to play games online (Which means even Zoom qualifies), a not really accurate description.

So if the service is free, what’s their business model? Sell users’ contact info? Play ads during games?
It sells a player matching service that directly pays GMs for creating content. They take a % of your per-session ticket costs and uses their algorithm to suggest players for you (as GM). As a player, it serves up listings of games (both free and paid) that match your interest.
