Navigating Your Player Interface

Features & Functions

and where to find them

This article gives you a rundown on how to navigate the UI and buttons on your player interface in the Ardent Roleplay mobile app.

What is the player interface?

In the mobile app, the player interface appears as an overlay for your device's camera. While in this screen, you will scan Encounter Cards at the direction of your GM to see AR models appear.

In Encounter Mode The GM has control of what AR Encounter appears on the card and when state changes within those encounters are shown to individual players.


Main Buttons



Take a screenshot of your screen. Capture a memorable moment or take images to remind yourself of what happened last session.


Card AR History

See all previous state changes sent to you by your GM for the last Encounter Card you scanned.


3D View

See an alternative 3D view of the AR model that you can rotate and zoom.


State Text

Any State change your GM sends you with State Text attached will show up here. You will know there is something new to read when you see a red exclamation mark - press the button to read the text.
