What is an ARPG?

ARPGs, or ‘Art Role Playing Games’ are groups that focus on drawing and writing about a character, allowing them to find useful items, gain skills and level up. Think of it like a game of D&D where you don’t need a live GM directing you, and more freedom to do the things you want, any time you want, instead of completing quests and fighting monsters in a set story. You work to earn these things you want by creating unique pieces of art that determine your progression.

Arcane Zoo focuses on a series of original species, which also have the added feature of being able to breed new and unique offspring that can be bought and sold within the game.

There is no minimal skill level to join in and no minimal requirements for activity, you play how you want, and as often as you want.
