This is a page for info and links on how to transferring various things on the Roll20 platform between games.

Characters

There are two methods for transferring Characters between games.

A) Character Vault

All users have access to it, and it can be used to save character/ Character Sheets & their linked tokens/ avatars to the User's Vault.

  • From the Vault, character's can be imported to any games that have Full Vault Access, and FVA can be gained: between any campaign/games, regardless of owner.
    • Plus & Pro members have FVA in all their games.
    • Any game created with a Marketplace Module that has built in FVA, will always have FVA, regardless of subscription status.
    • Note: The GM needs to turn on the option on the Game Settings-page, for other people to be able to import their character


B) Transmogrifier

Pro user can use the tool to easily transfer multiple characters at a time directly between games they have created themselves, without having to use the Character Vault.

Maps

Pro user can use the Transmogrifier to easily transfer maps & pages together with all their settings & Dynamic Lighting directly between games they have created themselves.

Tokens

A) Transmogrifier Pro user can use the tool to transfer full pages with tokens and everything between games they have created themselves. Alternatively, transfer characters that have saved Default Token between games to get tokens & their settings transferred.

B) Character Vault If you save the token as a Default token on a character, you can use the Vault to move them between any games.

Card Decks, Roll Tables & Jukebox Playlists

The Transmogrifier can transfer Card Decks, Roll Tables & u Jukebox Playlists between game the person have created themselves.

Handouts

A) Transmogrifier Pro user can use the tool to transfer full pages with tokens and everything between games they have created themselves. Alternatively, transfer characters that have saved Default Token between games to get tokens & their settings transferred.

B) Use Characters as Handouts If you save The content of a Handout to a Character's Bio & Info-tab, you could use the Character Vault to transfer pseudo-Handouts between games.

Campaign Ownership

Changing who is the creator/owner of a Campaign is not something that can be done normally, but if you and explain why, it's known that Roll20 have at times transferred game ownership from one account to another.

Usually you can get a long way with just promoting the intended account to GM in the game and they can do most things themselves, with the exception that access to Plus/Pro features is reliant on the Creator's subscription level.

Marketplace Module/Roll20 Credit Ownership

Changing which account is owner of these things is not something that can be done normally, but if you and explain why these should change ownership, Roll20 will change it.
Community Opinion/Speculation: Contacting Roll20 ASAP is improving your chances for this to happen, so if several weeks or even months have passed since to purchase, or the product have been used to a great extent over a good period of time, might decrease changes they will agree.

Mistakenly gifting a product to the wrong person, buying it for yourself when it was meant as a gift, or confusion on who in the group should own something to gain the most benefits for the group/game, are likely reasons they might change things.

The GM doesn't always have to be the creator of the game, and if the GM only has a free account, it might be smart for a player who has a subscription to create/own the game, for the game/GM to get access to features like Dynamic Lighting. However, transferring maps, pages and a bunch of other things with the Transmogrifier can only be done between games created by that account, so a promoted GM can't use Transmogrifier to transfer content, only the creator.
