Growing a campaign with Eternity TTRPG

The tabletop gaming experience is as magical as the stories the game lets you tell. The number of TTRPGs in play is ever-growing and there are nearly countless different systems, but one thing remains the same: to play, you need a party, and once you pull together a party, you need a campaign.

The way a campaign in any game runs is unique to the players and the game master; some prefer a one-shot or a game that takes place through just a handful of sessions, while others invest in a long-running campaign that ends up being years of fun and adventure.

Jacob Tegtman of Eternity TTRPG speaks to the importance of investing in the campaign and the way it adds to the dimension of the TTRPG experience and fun for players and game masters:

There’s a sort of threshold that’s reached once a gaming group has played multiple sessions together. Once the threshold is crossed, it pushes the story from something merely fun, to something that’s truly compelling. Once a game has gone from something your players are showing up to try out, to something they can’t wait to experience each week, you know you’re in the “flow” of a great RPG campaign.

The results of connecting more to your character, locations in the game, villains, and everything related, is that you connect to the story. The game goes from being something merely fun and social, to something meaningful. When you connect to your game’s story, you can’t wait to see what happens next. That’s when things start getting intense.

If you want to add another dimension to your play experience, try NeverEnding’s Character Builder. You can create avatars, character portraits, NPC tokens, and more. NeverEnding gives you the tools to bring your character to life so you can strengthen your connections and have even more fun no matter what game you play.

Diversify your NPC builds!

Creating Non-player character (NPC) portraits or tokens for virtual tabletop platforms (VTTs) is normally tedious work for a game master, especially when you need to make multiple versions to represent a group of NPCs, such as guards or bandits. Many character builders make it difficult to remake the same kind of character consistently over and over again. Instead of spending countless hours surfing the web for images that are “close enough” or building your NPCs piece by piece every time, we’ve got a solution!

Our character builder is designed to quickly and easily make your characters come to life. Creating your NPC images should be no different. Using our character builder, you can completely customize the character you make, save it, make a duplicate, and then switch out features to add diversity to your NPCs.

Using the character builder, you can also add an extra dimension to your NPCs using accessories, backdrops, or even the turn your full body character portrait into a VTT token! Add some variety to your games by whipping up tokens for each of the NPCs you create, which can be uploaded to popular gaming platforms like Roll20 or Foundry (though there are a bunch of virtual gaming platforms).

We want to see the characters you create, so check out our character builder contest here!

Character builder updates for the week of November 2nd!

Cheers adventurers!

These updates always come with shiny new toys to play with in our Character Builder, but none of it would be possible without you guys, which is why we’re hosting a contest! To show our appreciation for all of your cool creations, we’re gifting a $25 gift card to the winner of our Character Contest! But first, let’s show off our new builder updates.

New Features!

  • Cloaks of chainmail or fabric, both fit for a king
  • Full-body outfits for your Dwarven Fighter, Lyrical Bard, or whomever fits the build!
  • Detailed belts and embroidered skirts
  • Glowing auras

In our NeverEnding (see what we did there?) quest to give everyone the chance to build the character of their dreams, we’ve added more full-body outfits! There are new options for bards, tieflings and humans alike. While you’re using these cool new features to build a cool character, consider submitting it to our Character Contest (rules below).

Each aura is amazing in their own unique way, and these additions are no different. We’ve added immersive auras that incorporate elements of a tiger, elk or wolf totem. Your character can control a whirl of flames that roars as loud as a tiger, or summon a wolf’s full moon — the possibilities are endles!

Last, but certainly not least, we’ve got the rules for our Character Contest. Submit your creations by following the instructions below.

We’re excited to see the cool things you guys create! Follow us on FacebookInstagram, or Twitter to see concept art and get the very latest on what’s coming soon. See you next time!

  • A treasure trove of new backgrounds
  • New items to equip, such as pints for mead and an assortment of deadly melee weapons

Wear last week’s swash buckler clothes on a journey to a cavern of treasure. Pose with eight backgrounds that will give your character a pirate’s edge!

Don your cape, grab your drink and raise your weapons! We’ve got a fun variety of new items to equip, even if all you want to do is grab two pints.

Character Builder updates for the week of July 18th!

Hello again heroes!

Last week we played with fire and cooled down with ice, but this week we’re going to take a stroll through a quiet village with new backgrounds and don our new character build items.

New Features!

  • Cobblestone village backgrounds, great for NPC builds
  • A selection of new hats and a new hair option
  • Swash Buckler outfit
  • Necromancy and Light spells

If you’re in need of the finishing touch for a character’s look to come together, try one of the new hats added to our character builder. Once you’ve picked out a feathered or witch’s hat, try pairing it with our new braided hairstyle!

Have you been wanting to bring your swash buckling creation to life? With new clothing items to equip, you can make that dream a reality! These designs are just as good in addition to other pieces as they are alone.

Step into the dark side with a haunting necromancy spell, or conjure a magnificent beam of light with our added spell options. A new smoke spell adds an eerie element to any character build. Pair all of these items together and you’re guaranteed a wonderfully unique character of your own.
