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!
