What we're about

Join our Discord (https://discord.gg/zuDVj6t) server to connect with our community, chat and ask any questions you have.

Welcome to SwissRPG Central. We are the non profit association of Switzerland that enables players all over the country to discover and play tabletop role playing games. Join us and play Dungeons & Dragons and many other pen and paper games.

Welcome adventurer! Sounds like you have the thirst for playing some Dungeons and Dragons or other role playing games.

Our goal is simple: grow our community and enable more and more people to play D&D and other role playing games.

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 or a seasoned player, whether you're an experienced GM or are 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

In order to make this community function and enable more and more players to play role playing games, we spend a significant amount of time and money. The money we collect helps us with our spendings on various digital platforms where we make most D&D books in their digital form, as well as ready to play adventures for various games available to our GMs and players.

If you find value in what we do, please consider supporting us here (https://rebi.me/swissrpg) with a donation. Every donation makes a bit 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.

Dark Omens on the Bounteous Highlands [Basel D&D 5e Campaign] Session 7

The fields are dry, despite the rain, all the manure, and each and every farmer. In the town of Kublownica the atmosphere is tense. A bad harvest has always spelled troubles for the farming town. Even the druid from the Longmeadows came, gesticulated a couple of times through the air and left with an expression of disbelief printed on his face. Maybe the Hagi desert has decided to take this piece of the highlands. Or has there been foul play? People have been investigating you know. Will they find an answer hidden in the very ground? Or will the answers lie deep into the desert? • Please support us This event is provided to you free of charge by SwissRPG.
