The Expedition to Sleeper Island is a giant West Marches D&D 5e roleplaying game with an amazing community.   It is set on the continent of Katashaka far to the southwest of Faerun in the Forgotten Realms.   Our goal is to provide a place for people with busy lives to have an outlet for their roleplaying where they can play when they have the time, however irregular their schedule may be.   Sometimes real life gets in the way of being able to make a regularly scheduled session each week - on Sleeper Island you can play when the time suits you and still be part of a huge story, or a small story, or just tag along for the combat.   It's about how you want to play.

We have DMs over the globe and we run around 60 games per month in every time zone.   Our players are likewise from all over the world and in any given session you could find yourself playing with a completely new group of people and learning from how they roleplay.   New cultures bring new ideas and experiences.   We all have friends around the world now.

Every dollar raised through this Patreon will be put back into the game to make it a more rich, more exciting experience for the players and DMs.  Please read through our goals for specific examples.

Our game is run by a great team of volunteers.   From the DMs who run the games to the mods who take care of all the players everyone here is doing it for the love of roleplaying.   A lot of work goes into something this big and without a team this dedicated it wouldn't be possible.   Tens of thousands of hours of time have been put into making Sleeper Island an immersive, fun, and brutal roleplaying experience.

Goals
$9 of $75 per month
Not everyone has the financial capability to match their enthusiasm.   When we reach $75 per month we will be able to help a new DM purchase the required virtual table top books and subscription so that they can start running sessions on Sleeper Island.   The more DMs we have, the more games you can join.   These DMs will always be selected from our playing community.
