Interview: Nolan T. Jones from Roll20

At Tribality, we’ve been interviewing some of the people who are behind all the awesome stuff that is being created for tabletop gamers – such as virtual tabletops. I’ve been using heavily for over a year now and I was really excited to talk to Nolan when he agreed to an interview to talk about tabletop gaming and Roll20.

Roll20 began as an effort to keep The Orr Group founders Riley Dutton, Nolan T. Jones, and Richard Zayas in touch via long distance gaming. Since launching via Kickstarter in 2012, it has attracted more than 825,000 users as a free service. The program continues to be funded by subscribers who receive features that assist advanced gameplay. The program’s upcoming ‘Update of Holding’ will introduce native iPad and Android apps to the existing digital toolkit.
