GET STARTED WITH SLEEPER ISLAND

 

Sleeper Island is a Dungeons & Dragons 5e game that stays true to the spirit of West Marches.

If you’re unfamiliar with the term “West March”, it is a large encompassing campaign consisting of multiple Dungeon Masters and an even larger number of players.

It focuses on the core belief of going westward for the sake of exploration and discovery. But with these aspects also comes an intense amount of danger.

Who you play with and what your exploration team looks like changes almost every time, so sign up, gather together, and seek your destiny!

If you’d like to know more about how West Marches are run, check out Matthew Colville’s Youtube video!

So the question is… How do you get started? The guides and videos below are here to help you start your adventure, piece by piece.

Quickstart Guide

1. JOIN DISCORD

Everything here runs on your Discord account.

2. ASK FOR A WITNESS

Go to #character-creation
State you want to roll for stats and Ping @Witness Me” 
Wait to be acknowledged.

The staff who witnesses you will use a command to prompt you to roll.

3. ROLL FOR STATS

READ THE PARAGRAPH

Use !randchar to roll.
Rolls without a witness are invalid.

Roll until you get at least two 15s or higher or a set of stats you like, whichever comes first.
If you choose to reroll your earlier stats become null and void.
Your Rolled stats are in order STR, DEX, CON, INT, WIS, CHA.
Use !randchar to roll. If you don’t like your final roll you can take the Heroic array (16, 15, 13, 12, 10, 8) and put them in any order.
