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.

Tales from the Yawning Portal [D&D 5e Campaign] Session 1

Amid the bustle of Waterdeep, within the castle Ward where barristers, nobles and emissaries battle with word and contract, stands an inn not quite like any other: the Yawning Portal. With its rich history and famous barkeep, it makes for a perfect location for any adventurers to drink and share stories. Now a new band of adventurers is desperately searching for glory, fame and coin and as such are accepting any quest they find. This is the story of how these brave new heroes are trying to make a name for themselves alongside all the legendary heroes of Faerun. • 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 • What to expect This game is a D&D 5e campaign intended for beginner and experienced D&D players. We will play the adventure over many sessions every other week. In this session 1 we will begin the adventure in full so please bring your made characters. • Join our Discord In order to receive information from the GM on the adventure, ask your questions and meet your fellow adventuring friends, please join 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 campaign's channel. • What to bring Pencils, dice (if you don't have any, others can lend you some). As the venue is a cafe/bar, please do not bring any snacks and plan to order a few drinks. Also, please note although the venue has a smoking lounge on a different floor, the event is non-smoking. • 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 courtesy of Wizards of The Coast

The Bards of Netherien [D&D 3.5e Campaign] Session 0

Athan, a low-fantasy, feudal setting, a world divided into five major nation-like alliances. Tightly watched and protected borders between these 5 nations are the guarantors of a centuries-old truce. With cross-country travel restricted, only few powerful organisations are allowed to cross borders and trade internationally goods, services and information. You begin your adventure as aspirants to the inner circle of the most inconspicuous of these groups, the Bards of Netherien. They are a seemingly loose collaborative of artists, bringing stories, news and art into all different parts of the world. But below the surface, the Bards of Netherien maintain, what is possibly the best network of information and professional services. Will you pass the test and join the Bards' inner circle ? Or will you decide to take a different path ? The choice is yours to make. Exploration: High | Social: High | Combat: up to players, difficult and dangerous | Story-Narrative: High | Character-background-driven: up to players | Openness: high | Grit: High. • 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 • What to expect This game is a D&D 3.5e campaign in a very open world with its own dynamics and a rich background/history.

We will play the campaign over many sessions every other week. In this session 0 we’ll be able to clear out the important details of the game, agree on logistics, and get to start the campaign. • Character Creation Character creation will be handled prior to the game on our Discord server (https://discord.gg/pYWHjK4).
