Ardent Roleplay is the first augmented reality (AR) app for tabletop roleplaying games. It brings animated terrain, creature, NPC and prop models to your face-to-face and online games. It is a system agnostic tool with a continuously growing catalog of AR models.
More importantly however, Ardent Roleplay allows the gamemaster to individualise the information shown to different players. This allows players to be more selective with what they share with the other players, who haven’t overheard the GM’s reveals. This brings more roleplay, and the possibility of intrigue, into the game, which also increases immersion in the game world.
Ardent Roleplay is a mobile app designed and developed in Brisbane, Australia. The idea first arose in 2014 in a conversation about the emerging technology of augmented reality in games. As avid tabletop role playing gamers, Ralf, Soren and Jacob saw an opportunity to combine their interest for tabletop RPGs with AR. Ralf, our CEO and Erin our COO formed a company and decided to take Ardent Roleplay to market working with Jacob and Soren. Today the Ardent Roleplay product team consists of more than fifteen staff who share the same passion of creating something new to bring to the world of tabletop gaming.
