What we're about

Welcome to SwissRPG Zürich. We are a non-profit Swiss association (Verein) with the mission to enable people to discover and play role playing games like Dungeons and Dragons.

Join our Discord (https://discord.gg/pYWHjK4) server to connect with our vibrant and positive community, chat and ask any questions you have.

Check our Twitch streams (https://www.twitch.tv/swissrpg) and our Youtube videos (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCe1lPr1LqO1xrMKT4K3Zx9g).

Do you live closer to Basel? Check our Basel chapter (https://www.meetup.com/Basel-Dungeons-Dragons/).

Finding players and scheduling RPG games is a little more complicated than just showing up for a game. We want to simplify this for as many Game Masters and players as possible.

Whether you're new to role playing games, a seasoned player, an experienced GM or curious to try, join our group, and get in touch with our vibrant community.

Our games are primarily in English, though we mostly speak it as a second language, so don't worry about not being fluent. We run introductory games for first timers, one shot adventures (a one evening only session), short and long campaigns which can run from a few sessions to many months.

Support our group

Most of our events are provided to you free of charge by SwissRPG. If you find value in what we do, please consider supporting us with a donation here (https://rebi.me/swissrpg). Every donation makes a difference, Thank you for your support.

Call for GMs​

We usually have more demand than supply so every supportive GM helps. If you're a GM and would like to participate, please let us know. We have lots of resources such as the following:

- coaching and support for organising your game and finding your players.
- access to almost all official D&D books and adventures.
- access to pre-made adventures suited to your specific needs.
- access to free venues centrally located in Zürich which are perfect to run your games.
- support to new GMs who need assistance in getting started.
- our monthly GM roundtable discussion (The Masters' Table) where our GMs meet and share experiences and answer questions from aspiring GMs.
- access to workshops to grow your GMing skills.
- access to dice sets, GM screens, etc.

You've never been a GM, don't feel experienced enough, or you just don't feel ready? We can help too. We helped several new GMs, even some who never played RPGs before, get their feet wet with easy pre-made adventures to run, with beginner players to discover D&D with, and with the support of more experienced GMs. It's a lot of fun.

If you want to be a GM with us, please get in touch with one of our organisers.

Curse Of Strahd [D&D 5e Campaign] Session 0

Under raging storm clouds, the vampire Count Strahd von Zarovich stands silhouetted against the ancient walls of Castle Ravenloft. Rumbling thunder pounds the castle spires. The wind’s howling increases as he turns his gaze down toward the village of Barovia. Far below, yet not beyond his keen eyesight, a party of adventurers has just entered his domain. Strahd’s face forms the barest hint of a smile as his dark plan unfolds. He knew they were coming, and he knows why they came; all according to his plan. A lightning flash rips through the darkness, but Strahd is gone. Only the howling of the wind fills the midnight air. The master of Castle Ravenloft is having guests for dinner—and you are invited. • What to expect This will be a long-running, fantasy-horror, DnD 5e campaign set in the Lands of Barovia. The campaign setting and the flavour of the campaign will be introduced during Session 0. Preferably, future sessions will be held weekly on Wednesdays. Though there will be some flexibility allowed, please make sure you can attend most sessions regularly. Other table rules will also be decided to make sure everyone gets to enjoy the campaign. + Exploration: High + Social: Medium to High (Depends on the players) + Combat: Medium to High + Story/narrative: Medium + Character-background-driven: Medium + Openness (sandbox): Medium (Depends on the players) • Character Creation Character creation will be handled at Session 0 and discussed on our Discord server (https://discord.gg/pYWHjK4). Please contact Alp there and tell him you are registered for this game to gain access to the adventure's channel. • What to bring Pencils, dice (we can lend you some if you don't have any), personal choice of snacks. • Please support us This event is provided to you free of charge by SwissRPG. If you find value in what we do, please consider supporting us with a donation at the following link: https://rebi.me/swissrpg • Important note We have a lot of members who would like to join long campaigns but very few that are running. For fairness of giving everyone a chance to play, please avoid registering to more than one long campaign. This rule would, however, no longer apply if there are still available spots 3 days prior to the first session date. Image by Wizards of the Coast
