NPC Camp 2018 - Join the Team!

NPC Camp 2018

NPC camp is where stories are born.
Every member of the NPC team participates in bringing these stories to life - they are our Storytellers. There is no hard separation between "Shapers" and "NPCs" on this team. Everyone collaborates to deliver the stories on site by playing NPC roles. Every team member is also welcome to write and submit their story ideas to the team. We aim to create a variety of content so that there's something for everyone: combat, puzzles, politics, RP. Our goal is to create an interesting, immersive, fun world for our community to live in, and deliver it in a way that is safe, inclusive, and fair.
