The “Learn Astral” section provides tutorials for learning how to use Astral. These fully interactive games are available for all community members and are separated by difficulty or required understanding of the Astral platform.
The basic tutorial covers a variety of topics such as basic token movement, camera control, introduction to effects, and basic map editing. We recommend everyone complete the basic tutorial.
The Advanced Tutorial covers a large collection of advanced topics, providing instructions and demonstrations of many different aspects of the Astral Platform. If you’d like to make sure you are able to fully use Astral to it’s maximum capability, we highly recommend the Advanced Tutorial.

These games are meant to provide both a complete playable experience for you and your party, as well as a campaign template that can be used for creating your own campaign.
