Formally founded in 2014, our roots dig back to 2012, when a trio of friends joined to create a new fantasy setting, Waracle. While fans of RPGs and fantasy settings, we felt the genre had gone a bit stale, too afraid to leave its comfort zone of medieval Europe inspired settings. Inspired by the originality and charm of settings such as the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender, we set out to build a fantasy game with less explored influences and themes. With our debut game in alpha playtesting stage, we are committed to offering new and exciting tabletop gaming experiences to newcomers and veterans alike.
We are geeks of many backgrounds and talents: our interests range from animation nerds to historical weaponry specialists. Our fandoms and passion inspire and illuminate our games.
Out of our diverse interests, our team collaborates to bring multiple perspectives and influences to our work. This supportive environment brings out the best in our crew and games.
All are welcome to our sandboxes, and improving diversity in media is a cornerstone of our company. No matter who or what you are, we want you to see yourself in our games and be the best hero you can be.
