Hello! I'm Daniel--an editor, teacher, freelance writer, and native New Yorker. I'm creating a text-based Online Roleplaying Game in my own setting of Dungeons and Dragons. I'd love to have your support in order to make it the most intense, challenging, and rewarding online roleplaying experience out there!

Walpurgis uses 5th Edition of D&D, and is run in the style of "West Marches" campaign. In it, players gather at the central hub of Aleister's Rest, a ruined town that lies at the heart of a hostile jungle near the center of an island that is dominated by the tyrannical Lords of the Realm of Yura. From their humble start, the players will work to rebuild the town, while at the same time defending it, investigating rumors, and venturing out on epic quests to increase their power and strike back against the Lords.

Players are free to hop in the tavern at Aleister's Rest and roleplay together at any time. There, they'll form their own stories, and their bonds with each other, which they'll take with them on their adventures. When players want to take on a quest, they'll form up a party, and schedule a game session with me, the DM--and from there it becomes just like the tightly-focused, hand-crafted adventure that would you expect from a tabletop roleplaying experience. 

I'm aiming Walpurgis at an audience who loves a challenge. I'm appealing to people who prefer Dark Souls to Skyrim; who prefer Game of Thrones to Lord of the Rings. The game certainly has a "rogue-like" element--where player-characters will be exposed to genuine dilemmas and excruciating trials, with a real and constant risk of permanent death; but through those sacrifices, players will see the town develop and come more and more to life. My belief is that those kinds of stories are the most memorable, the ones most worth telling. 

Interested? Check out our Campaign on Obsidian Portal. If you like what you see, hop on our Discord, and get involved with us on Roll20. Joining Walpurgis is and will always be free.

You guys are amazing! For as long as I'm holding at this level, I'll introduce a new perk for all of my Patrons. Four times a year, once per season, I will run an exclusive, self-contained, one-off event. An evening of silliness, mayhem, and betrayal: a Murder Mystery Night!
