Patreon

Sleeper Island EU is free to play and supporting us on Patreon is not a requirement to play, we greatly appreciate all Patronage that we receive.

There are benefits to being a Patreon as listed below but not being a Patreon will not inhibit your ability to play and be part of the Sleeper Island EU community.

The Expedition to Sleeper Island is a giant West Marches D&D 5e roleplaying game with an amazing community. It is set on Sleeper Island, a massive continent surrounded in mystery somewhere in the Forgotten Realms.

Our goal is to provide a place for people with busy lives to have an outlet for their roleplaying where they can play when they have the time, however irregular their schedule may be.

Sometimes real life gets in the way of being able to make a regularly scheduled session each week – on Sleeper Island you can play when the time suits you and still be part of a huge story, or a small story, or just tag along for the combat. It’s about how you want to play.

We have DMs over the globe and we run around 60 games per month in every time zone. Our players are likewise from all over the world and in any given session you could find yourself playing with a completely new group of people and learning from how they roleplay.
New cultures bring new ideas and experiences. We all have friends around the world now.

Money earned through this Patreon will be used to improve Sleeper Island and make the game, more user friendly, exciting and a greater experience for the players and DMs.
Please read through our goals for specific examples.

From the DMs who run the games to the mods who take care of all the players everyone here is doing it for the love of roleplaying.
A lot of work goes into something this big and without a team this dedicated it wouldn’t be possible.
Tens of thousands of hours of time have been put into making Sleeper Island an immersive, fun, and brutal roleplaying experience.

Patreon Reward System


Recruit $5
The recruit rank does not get a Patreon Tier Token, they only get a Patreon Priority Token.

Tier 1

Patreon Priority Token
A Patreon can expand a Patreon Tier Token to use a Patreon Priority Token.
A PPT will give you high priority for selection in that session.

To use a Priority Token sign up on reddit with PPT in your sign up.
When you get picked you must spend the token.

The following terms and conditions apply;

  • You submit the token on reddit before the DM chooses the party
  • Your character must be within the level range of the session

The DM of the session will do their best to fit you in the session.

This token does not guarantee that you will be picked for a session in circumstances where there is a group of totally new players or certain PCs are required for a session.
These kind of circumstances will be the exception and not the norm.

Playtesting

Iron Man Mode – 3rd Character Slot

We are happy to introduce Iron Man mode for those who are looking for a bit more of a challenge and another way to experience Sleeper Island for those that already riding on their wave of luck.
The mindset behind Iron Man mode is to promote playtesting without the need to sacrifice your two primary characters, we hope to see a relatively quick turn over of these characters as their maximum level is 7
We envision that these brave adventures come to the island and after they have had adventures under their belt they move either back home or to new lands.

Each month you must use a T3 token to unlock your 3rd PC slot.
Keep in mind a 3rd PC must meet certain requirements and has several limitations on them.
Rules:

  • Your slot 1 and Slot 2 characters need to be level 5+
  • Playtest classes receive 100% of session XP
  • Non-playtest classes receive 50% of session XP
  • Always low priority in sessions (PPS still works)
  • Cannot level up past level 7
  • Can Retire without penalties when level 5 or above

At the start of the month you must have 2 characters 5+ and spend a Tier 3 token to unlock Iron Man mode.

If Slot 1 or Slot 2 character dies, and drops below level 5, the Iron Man slot will function for the rest of the month.

You have already unlocked it for that month.
If you don’t meet the requirements at the start of the next month, then you can’t spend a Tier 3 token to unlock Iron Man mode that month and the character slot goes into stasis.

Tier 4

Design a town/Hamlet
You suggest and and perhaps coordinate with one of the dms to design a town on the island. You won’t know which or what it’s called or where it is, but when it’s discovered it may have that special PC musk.

Design a Building
You suggest a new type of building to be added to current list of buildings. The dms/mods will review your request and work with you to make it a reality. No cheesing. Unless it’s a cheese mill. We accept literal cheese.

Small festivities
Once a month you can use your token to make a small festival in the town with games and fun times. You suggest a fun rp session with fun and games and trivial awards (like a lesser version of arena week, or forced appreciation of your character’s achievements!)

Non-mechanical pet 
Your characters gets a non-mechanical pet that exists solely inside town. Ex. Dog, Cat, Horse, Peacock, Armadillo, Koala, Drop Bear, Crocodile, Parrot, Small Child on a Backpack Leash (please don’t bring small children to Sleeper Island that is clearly a bad call)

Boosted Luck 
There is a possibility that luck will fall upon the town in regards to additional towns, surplus of food, active npc community, ship / shipwrecks or other random events.

Audition Session 
Sleepers can spend a T4 token to be a selection 1 of the 2 required DM’s or Mods for a audition session.
2 Greens
1 Green & Trial
1 Green & Mod
1 Green & Sleeper
