I’m Paddy Valdyr, the founder of the Valdyr Consortium. I started playing video games online when I was around fourteen years old (so that I don’t have to feel old, we don’t discuss how long ago that was) and right away I saw the key element of online gaming was community; That intangible feeling of being surrounded (even virtually) by people that share your passion, while doing what you love.

As the years progressed I picked up pen and paper gaming with the Star Wars Saga Edition rulebook and was forever engrossed in the versatility and mysticism of tabletop roleplay. Thanks to my coworkers at the time, I was transported into an uncountable number of worlds. As time moved on though, many of my friends changed jobs and schedules and I realized that the online communities out there just didn’t offer the same sense of camaraderie that I desired. Having experience in a number of video game clans in the past, I decided it was time to revamp an old website and provide a sense of fellowship to a group of fellow roleplayers.

Although I don't have a dedicated artist yet, I am currently seeking one. Thus, for now the graphics may seem lacking and for that I apologize. Keep in mind this is a brand-new venture and some of the pieces are still coming together. Your support allows me to gather these pieces much faster.

Diversity and Good Times

The Consortium is designed to allow gamers, mainly of the tabletop variety but some involved in select video games as well, have a place to congregate and run their games in peace away from the heavy regulations and watchful eye of other websites currently available. This group is much more selective in membership and allows for a plethora of material. Whether they’re looking for a one-night game or a three year campaign, gamers should have a place to find it.

Communication

In addition to the website and forum, we will offer voice communication with moderation available to assist with keeping the chat free of “unwanted guests” and uncomfortable distractions. The communication will be professionally-hosted and maintained, ensuring the stability modern gamers have come to expect.

Podcasts and Blog

In the works, is a podcast for our tabletop adventures, supporting several Game Masters and their stories. This will include a blog with summaries of the sessions, recordings of the podcasts and other information about characters, settings, etc.
Goals
$10 of $20 per month
Increase hosting plan to allow for new features on the website. This means the roleplay forum will allow for uploading of images directly into the posts. Increases storage capacity of the site and grants access to a showcase.
