Dungeons & Dragons players are not only creative, but they are always ready to devote more time to their hobby. The result is a wave of online tools that allow D&D players to run campaigns and play them in ever more immersive ways. One example is the upcoming “storytelling engine” Menyr, who recently shared a new trailer that details some of the platform’s features.
The Menyr’s Features trailer focuses on three main areas: virtual table, world building, and storytelling. As most online Dungeons & Dragons players will attest, virtual table technology is incredibly important. After all, this is where the games will be played. The features Menyr showcases in this video include virtual dice rolls, gameplay multiview, a library of character tokens, and a lobby that acts as a social zone while the virtual table is set up.
Next to the virtual table where the campaigns take place is the Menyr’s World Building system, where the campaigns are built. Dungeon Masters will be able to build worlds to explore in Menyr, as well as dungeons and more. The video includes procedural landscaping, drawing biomes to quickly create environments, terraforming, and a dungeon generator.
The final area in the trailer has to do with how the dungeon master can tell his story. The best example is the master’s ability to control time, which will change the lighting and weather on the virtual table.
All in all, this is a short video showing exactly what it has to offer Dungeons & Dragons players. It certainly has a solid build, and its aesthetic makes it visually more appealing than other similar Dungeons & Dragons VR platforms. However, it should still provide a polished and easy-to-use experience.
Menyr is not yet available, but its development team has plans for the near future. The video is an attempt to draw more attention to the project because the development team plans to launch the project on Kickstarter soon. The campaign hasn’t launched yet, but D&D players may find out more about Menyr soon.
