May 24, 2024 - v0.41.0

Role is back to full power and then some!

  • We officially launched our patronage subscription model. Learn more here.
  • Audio/Video features have returned to Role!
  • We've launched our integration with Owlbear Rodeo. Hosts can use OBR right in their Role Room without needing a new tab. All players can see and access your OBR rooms without even needing an OBR account!

Video Temporarily Disabled

January 1, 2024 - v0.40.0

Dear Role Players,

In early December we were informed that our video provider would be shutting down their service. We are working on integrating a new service provider for audio/video calls, but in the meantime we are disabling the ability to create or join video calls. This affects the following features:

  • Joining audio/video calls
  • Screensharing
  • Streaming music to players

These features are disabled temporarily until we can integrate with a new service provider. We understand that this is a major interruption for many game rooms and we are doing our best to get Role back to full power as soon as possible! Any questions, feel free to email us at
