Free League Nexus enhances game sessions with planned features such as a digital reader, game rules compendium, character builder, and interactive character sheet. Free League Nexus will also feature an online playspace that allows fans to connect with other players through matchmaking and video chat, where all the other tools are fully integrated.

“Free League has taken the tabletop roleplaying space by storm in the last few years, publishing games that are steeped in masterful game design, unparalleled production value, and compelling storytelling potential,” said Adam Bradford, Chief Development Officer at Demiplane. “We’re thrilled to bring this kind of digital support to life for these incredible games–I can’t wait to use Free League Nexus at my own table!”

“Tabletop gaming and its communities have been moving online for years, and we want our games to be where gamers are. Free League Nexus on Demiplane is another major step for us in this direction. We don’t want gamers to choose between playing online or at a physical table– Free League Nexus gives them tools to enhance the experience for both,” said Tomas Härenstam, CEO of Free League Publishing.

Demiplane is a new platform that provides an ever-expanding experience that brings fans of tabletop roleplaying games together in one place with high-quality tools that make playing games better—including the upcoming official digital toolsets Pathfinder Nexus and World of Darkness Nexus.

Free League Publishing is known for creating perennial award-winning tabletop roleplaying games–each one as unique as the next. Free League Nexus will initially provide support for games utilizing the acclaimed Year Zero Engine, including ALIEN The Roleplaying Game, Vaesen, Forbidden Lands, Mutant: Year Zero, and Coriolis, with other games to be incorporated in the future.


Demiplane brings roleplaying fans together to make games better, providing high-quality tools to form groups and enhance the ways games can be played, shared, and explored. Launched in 2020 by lifelong friends and die-hard RPG players, Peter Romenesko and Travis Frederick, Demiplane looks to revolutionize how people engage with and enjoy roleplaying games.

Very excited to follow along (and maybe get involved in the early access to feedback)!

Also very keen to help with early access feedback!

Just got here - sort of unsure what this is really - it looks like a groupfinder. Does it have tools to include materials, share docs and characters, roll dice etc?

Love this and very open to provide early access feedback.

Our platform’s first feature was game discovery, matchmaking, shared journaling, and video chat, and that is what is in place for use today.

Coming in 2022, we will introduce official digital toolsets for several popular games and systems, which will include features such as a digital reader, game rules compendium, character builder, digital character sheet, and more.

What that looks like will become much more clear in the first part of the new year - we’ll keep you posted!

I assume that will be part of the more detailed announcements, but just in case: it would be great if, going forward, you could also share how the integration strategy for Demiplane looks like. Most notably, will there be APIs, so people can build plugins, e.g. to sync characters with data in Foundry (or other VTTs), or maybe load assets from content I bought here on the map? (probably less relevant for Foundry, but useful for Owlbear Rodeo)

Very much hoping that Symbaroum is on the short list for inclusion in this launch or soon after, it is an amazing world and solid system.

We’re not ready to share details on that yet - mainly because we’re focused on building the core toolset - but we’ll keep everyone posted as we’re ready to do so.

Our underlying quest is to help people play these games as conveniently as possible, so any of what you mention is a possibility and fits that bill!


Any further news on this? do we have a date?

Can’t wait to see how you guys integrate the rule sets for so many great games under the Free League banner. I’m a big fan of Vaesen and Symbaroum!

On a different note, it would be awesome if Demiplane had a roadmap page indicating where you’re at in development of all the new Nexus releases and what you’re targeted release dates are (similar to how video games do so…or even how authors provide writing and publication updates). I understand that dates can change, but that could be reflected in the roadmap. It’d be a great way to keep people checking back for when their favorite Nexus would be launching.

For example, this Nexus was announced 4 months ago. The last staff post was 3 months ago. Fans of Free League know this is coming this year…but we have no idea when. Is it Q2? Q3? Q4? It’d be great for fans & users of Demiplane and Free League games to have a place to easily check updates on the development of a product.

Thanks for posting and the feedback, we really appreciate it.

Through the years, I’ve learned that providing dates (even rough targets) lead to heartache for all sides, so we would not have a dedicated page with dates. Even if we put in huge bold letters at the top that dates are subject to change, it still would create some level of confusion and disappointment when the inevitable unknowns arise in the development cycle.

However, I understand and agree with the sentiment about being anxious to know more details about future things, and especially the desire to know where the thing you’re waiting for lands in the hierarchy of priorities and schedule. On that front, we share updates in our weekly Dev Update streams, and I have recently mentioned that Free League Nexus is still 100% planned to launch this year.

I know that not everyone can watch those streams (or skim the VOD), so we can think through some ways to highlight that information we’re sharing in other places like the Forums. One reason that hasn’t happened yet is with our small team, finding the bandwidth to propagate that information elsewhere has been difficult to this point. But we’ve heard that feedback and will look into making it happen.

Lastly, we’re very excited about bringing Free League content to life here on Demiplane, and even though I said we don’t give dates, I’ll vaguely say that we hope to have more to share closer to the middle of the year…

Thanks again!

Hey BadEye! Long time! lol

Has there been any official announcement about whether or not Mork Borg and Cy_Borg will be supported? I’m sorry I haven’t been able to tune into the Dev Updates.

Being such simplistic systems, I imagine the workload for digitizing those games would be far less than others, but also I’m not a programmer so I’m a bit out of my element with that assumption.

Very excited to get Forbidden Lands digital tools as well, as I can see that has been confirmed!

With Free League and their myriad partners, we’ve had to take an approach of securing licenses property by property. The intent is for us to have them all over time, but it takes time.

So nothing to report on Mork Borg yet, but we love that game and want to include it, so we’ll share more as we’re able. Thanks!
