FAQ

Ardent Roleplay brings augmented reality models to tabletop roleplaying games. We help game masters speed up their preparation time and create an immersive visual experience for players. 

The Ardent Roleplay app provides high quality, dynamic miniatures and scenery right from your phone with the added benefit of visual effects and individualisation. Our digital creatures, characters, environments and props are both economical and easy to transport, resolving major aspects that have previously deterred many RPG players. 

You can download our mobile and tablet app from the App Store or Google Play

We’ve got a few different options for getting these wonderful hand-drawn cards into your hands. You can order professionally printed physical cards through DriveThruRPG.com  – or you can access our FREE print and play cards as printable PDFs or in a viewable Image Gallery.

The Ardent Roleplay app is free to download and free to play!

Yes! The Ardent Roleplay app is system agnostic which means it’s compatible with ALL RPG systems – hooray!

The Ardent Roleplay cards work in two ways: firstly,  as the augmented reality markers and secondly, as narrative queues for the GM and players. 

As the AR markers, place the cards on your table where you want to position your animated models. Your device will recognise the card and track it’s position while the app is open – hover over, pinch zoom in and out and explore the new world that’s come to life in front of you! 

Remember where your campaign’s storyline is at by using the cards as narrative queues. Any asset can be assigned to any card, keep it simple by using related imagery connected to the encounter you’ve chosen. Linear or randomised, the power is in the GMs hands!

Of course! The app is designed to be a companion to your campaigns as well as being able to be used on its own. The markers can easily be incorporated with your already assembled models and terrain. Unlike virtual reality where you’re replacing real life, augmented reality adds to it and when you combine this with theatre of the mind, it’s the perfect mixing of mediums.

Short answer is no you don’t have to, but you can. Ardent Roleplay lets the GM add the 3D models they want into the campaign when they want to. These include scenery, creatures, NPCs and props. It is very adaptable to the GMs wishes.  

One of the things we looked at is making sure that GMs and players have more time doing what they love – playing the game.  Our bundled packs help with preparations of campaigns and also keeping track of game history.
