Tabletop RPGs, Kiwi Style 

Design And Play Under The Long White Cloud

This is Aotearoa (New Zealand), the land of the long white cloud, a nation of islands located deep in the southern Pacific Ocean.

We make games, we play games. Through #KiwiRPG you will discover a new constellation of world-class TTRPGs and actual play shows.

We may be far from the rest of the world, but our games belong everywhere. The peoples of this land have always known how to cross oceans.

What Is KiwiRPG?

The Story Behind The Hashtag

We are an eager team-up of Aotearoa’s TTRPG podcasters, live streamers, youtubers, and game designers. We started actively linking up under  the #KiwiRPG hashtag in 2021 and became a formal association in 2023. 

It isn’t always easy to share news of our creations with the rest of the world. We can’t easily make it to GenCon or Dragonmeet! However, everyone here sort of knows everyone else*, and #KiwiRPG uses these friendly networks to combine our voices and reach further, together.

(* not actually a joke, it really is like that here)
