Let the adventure begin...

At long last, brave adventurers we get to play the 5e tabletop role-playing game that we all love... exploring dangerous dungeons and challenging fierce dragons, but we get to play in a way that you may have never imagined. 

A new way to play...

So, don your weapons and armor, or ready your spell book and magic wand, and prepare yourself to play your favorite class and race of character, in a magical new fantastic world called ITHERVERSE - The Fantasy Turn-Based-Game.

Attempt anything...

So what makes this game so better or different?  Well, first understand that you get to play the game the way it was meant to be played - unrestricted. Unlike modern video games, with limited button combinations and maneuvers - here you can try anything you can imagine. If you want to climb on the landscape for a height advantage during a fight, then try to do so. If you want to try and befriend the beast instead of fighting it, then you can try that as well. 

Unlimited options...

Does your current game hold you back, limiting your creative use of the environment, such as swinging from chandeliers, parkoring out of danger and being heroic? Well, not here. Just like any other epic story-telling RPG, you are integral to making up your story and your character attempting anything you can think of. 

Play anywhere, any time...

Meanwhile, you get to play the game at your own place - be it from work, from school, at the coffee shop, during lunch, or during any other break in your busy day. You can play via computer, tablet, smart phone, and nearly device with a web browser.  

Massively multiplayer...

Best of all, there is the potential to be playing along side thousands of other players in the same setting, and the same world. You may be in different locations, but you can meet up or accidentally encounter one another. This means your character can explore the world alone, or you can join in cooperative play and travel together, for safety.

Dangerous PVP & PVE...

Just know that the world is dangerous with vicious monsters and deadly hazards around every turn. You must also be very careful if you stray too far from the safety of public places and the watchful eyes of city guards - because this is a PVP (Player Vs. Player) game environment. Don't just watch for dangerous traps and monsters, but dangerous players such as rogues, brigands, necromancers and the other scoundrels that would wish to do you harm.

Play Good or Evil characters...

That's right, you get a choice. You can play the traditional good characters banding together to protect the innocent, or even those who travel alone, each exploring ancient catacombs and embarking on heroic quests in search of magical treasure. Or, you can play evil character alignments, joining a band of pirates or play the solo thief, lurking about and picking pockets. 

Gladiatorial opportunities...

If you would like to test your mettle or practice and prepare for dangers, sign up for gladiatorial events at the arena - either alone or in epic party vs. party competition. 

How does it work?

So, how is all of this possible, in a computer game. This game utilizes a method of play referred to as Play-By-Post. Instead of gathering around a table with fellow players, dice, and a Game Master who verbally narrates - you read the description of the setting and what's happening to your character via our bulletin board style forum. When it's your turn, you type up and submit the actions of your character to the Game Master in narrative format. The Game Master, in turn, writes up the results and sends that back. One might expecte updates every 24 hours - depending on how fast your party agrees to play, or even faster if you play solo. Sometimes the Game Master provides maps and images to help you visualize the setting and what is going on, but much of the game is played in our imagination, or what we like to call - the "Theater of the Mind."

Free to play, at Level 1...

The game is free to play, at level 1, indefinitely. And considering the game progresses much more slowly than if you were to play in-person, you can even play multiple characters at the same time (you only need a separate email for each character account). The more skillfully you play, the faster you will earn experience points which grant you the opportunity to level up your character, making them more resilient and skillful. You don't have to level up. You can continue to play for Free at Level 1, or upgrade your membership for a nominal subscription fee, allowing your character to move up in rank, reputation and awe-inspiring power. 

Contributing content...

When the game first starts, there will be numerous opportunities to earn game credits such as submitting content that can be used in our game. We will be accepting: Maps & locations, artwork, interesting characters, or outlines for an entire quest. The game credits can therefore be traded for fun in-game rewards. What can not be bought, are levels, as they must be earned through game-play and experience. There will also be a few volunteer staff positions in need of being filled, early on. If you are an aspiring writer or artists, this may be a grand opportunity to donate your work in exchange for the exposure.

Cooperative storytelling...

In closing, we are excited to share this unique game experience with you. Yes, there will be combat and conflict, but for those who enjoy the storytelling and social aspects of role-playing, in a dangerous setting with surprises around every turn, this will prove to be one of the most exciting changes to online RPGs, in quite some time. 

Our motto:

"It's your game, play it your way"

REVISED STRETCH GOALS

NOTE: All of these are part of the long-term planning and may come to fruition within a year or two; however, these stretch goals allow us to make them happen in the first 90 days of launch (in some cases, immediately).

  • $1100 Run the website "ad free" for at least 1 year 
  • $1200 Play as a Monster
    (Respawnable monster accounts, for experienced players) 
  • $1300 Commission illustrations of popular landmarks and NPCs.
    $1400 The Adventurer's Chronicle
    (Read along, journal, of the adventures of famous parties) 
  • $1500 Add-on expansions. More locations to explore, near and far.. 
  • $2000 Character Specific Avatars
    (Pick from available options, to represent your PC) 
  • $3000 Organized table-top side treks
    (Allows you to play your PC, one-off, at local conventions.)

It's reasonable to assume that the more successful the funding, the more illustrations, expansions and side treks we can entertain - and over a larger geographical area.  

Riesgos y desafíos

The risks are minimal. Closed ALPHA level testing with only a few dozen players is already in progress. The money earned goes toward purchasing cloud storage, backups, forum hosting, software licenses, general business administration, illustration (eventually) and the other mechanisms and affiliations necessary to make the game work. The biggest risk is that of staffing and costs associated with the same. Volunteers have already expressed interested in assisting with Game Master roles in exchange for free game play.

    LEVEL 2.5 - ADVENTURER

    Prior rewards + Fame, Title, and Clout. Your character enters into our world with a reputation. Not necessarily nobility, unless that is what you want. No, this can be stories from abroad, that describe something s/he did. Or, for the characters prefering less notoriety, it can be a secret known only in certain, underworld, or dark circles - and the type of thing that is never to be discussed above a whisper, or suffer dire consequences. Former leader of a distant guild? Feared Justicar from a Court or Council in the adjacent Dutchy? (Keep in mind, the character starts at Level 1), but you can create some powerful intrigue, which is both confirmable and respected.

    LEVEL 3: ACOLYTE

Name a location or building in the game, magic item, monster, famous non-player character or just about anything you can think of -
    as long as it makes sense. [Copyrighted names are prohibited]

    LEVEL 5: GUILDMASTER

    Prior rewards + Create and play a notorious "fixture" character of your choice (at no cost to you). They can be a well known store-owner or merchant, wandering homeless person, false snake-oil practitioner, nefarious loan-shark or pawnbroker, or perhaps a member of the local nobility. You decide [within reason], but this type of character is mechanically just a commoner [no class or level] with a rich story, historical significance, local notoriety and as such - usually protected. The game staff allow you to play the part, unless you don't post - in which case staff "puppets" them as an NPC until you return.
