We just want to play more.
Tabletop Role Playing Games require time, and experience in order to play. Most of all, a Game Master (GM) is essential, and an experienced GM makes for a fully immersive, mutually rewarding experience. This creates an enormous barrier start playing, continue playing or re-engage with TTRPGs (especially as an adult).
Most technology seeks to streamline or eliminate interpersonal communication. Gyld will increase real, in-person, interaction. There is something fundamentally different about meeting in-person. The in-person experience cannot be replaced by technology, so let’s use technology to make getting together easier.
Gyld is a marketplace for Players and Game Masters to connect with players and games. Hopefully it will increase the number of players, frequency and enjoyment of tabletop RPGs by eliminating the most difficult barrier to a successful game.
