Wanderer itself is not a game, however you and a group of friends may use Wanderer to play roleplaying games. The developers grew up playing tabletop roleplaying games like Dungeons and Dragons in-person with books. Which served as the inspiration for us to make a new app for RPG gamers to play their own version(s) of DnD over their computers with customizable modules and cloud saving character sheets.
What’s a roleplaying game you ask?
1. The DM describes the environment(world building).
2. The player characters describe what they want to do(collective storytelling).
3. The DM narrates the results of the adventurers’ actions(refereeing the game).
There are two types of players needed for roleplaying . The first being the dungeon master or DM; also known as the game master, GM; or master of ceremonies, MC. The DM is solely responsible for setting up and governing the rules of an entire in-game world in an all powerful, godlike manner. They decide how things turn out using their own system of luck and/or reason. The other players are roleplaying characters that they created for themselves and acting out what their characters would do in certain situations described to them by the GM. These players are known as PCs or player characters.
Why use Wanderer?
Collectively, the developers have logged tens of millions of hours playing various RPGs, and we would like to think that we have insight to offer the tabletop roleplaying games genre. Wanderer is a customizable app that allows DMs a wide selection of, rules-based modules, they can incorporate into their roleplaying game they are playing online. Think of Wanderer as your digital character sheet, where player characters can record their progress throughout the game and share it with the GM.
Though Wanderer is still a work in progress, we hope to continue refining it until we have a polished final product, thank you for your interest.
