Wayfinder Online camps feature an immersive roleplay experience which is character and story driven, and created specifically to be played online and in the home. The events are meant to engage participants in a way that allows them to explore the creative storytelling, transformative character work, and supportive social network that Wayfinder (and our Adventure Game) has become known for, while engaging in a digital format that makes full use of the technology at our disposal. Each game will take place over a week of digital camp and will include a specially built package of game materials (and some camp goodies). (The price for the materials package and shipping has been added to the cost of camp.) Camp will run for 5 days with 3 sessions a day.
Virtual Camp Week 1: Secrets of the Adirondacks (July 13-17)
Something strange is happening in the Adirondack Park. Big animal sightings are up. People are reporting things walking through their campsites and their backyards. Things scraping the outside of their second story windows. A child almost disappeared into the woods because she “just wanted to see where the floating lights lead.” People have been seeing things. The Park Rangers have said that it’s nothing. There was one scientist, definitely not a local, who had been talking about “cryptids,” but no one has seen them in a week or two now. It feels like something bigger is coming, and unless the right people do something, nothing is going to be able to stop it.
Secrets of the Adirondacks is a Digital Adventure Game that takes place as Cryptids start showing up in Adirondack State Park. Players will be tasked with figuring out what they are, where they came from, and what to do about them. Gameplay will be built around solving puzzles, but, as ever, will be driven by the same kind of character based roleplay that the Adventure Game always centers on. Join us as we take a closer look at the magical things that we share the woods with. With your help, we might be able to make them all safe.

Virtual Camp Week 2: Across the Universe (July 27-31)
The War is finished, the Enemy is vanquished, and still the struggle continues. Reports of destroyed worlds and burnt-out stars litter every spaceport in the known universe. An Intergalactic Cataclysm in the outer rims has spurred the Cosmic Cooperation Council into action. Ships built for battle are being repurposed for exploration as a great gathering of minds and species from across the universe are gathering to aid in this mission. Those who fought side by side now face a challenge greater than the battle they won: how can they rebuild the stars?
Across the Universe is a Digital Adventure Game that takes place in a time of great intergalactic crisis. Players will be tasked with finding a way to solve the crisis or, at the very least, save the people threatened by it. Gameplay will be built around solving puzzles, but, as ever, will be driven by the same kind of character based roleplay that the Adventure Game always centers on. Join us as we take to the stars and see if we can’t come together to save ourselves. Everyone has a part to play, come and see if you can’t play the hero.

Virtual Camp Week 3: Shatter the Ancient Seal (August 10-14)
One thousand years ago, the great mage Ptolas bound every spirit, large and small, behind an impenetrable arcane seal, never to interfere with the mortal world again. An age has passed, as the gods and demons and avatars have waited in impotent frustration, but finally a crack in Ptolas’s Seal is beginning to show. Can the host of imprisoned powers convince mortalkind to free them? And if so, will they bring wonder back to the world, or will their havoc run amok, as in times of old?
Shatter the Ancient Seal is a Digital Adventure Game where players are cast as spirits trying to escape their ancient prison. Players must scheme for power and influence mortals to do their bidding. Gameplay will be built around solving puzzles, but, as ever, will be driven by the same kind of character based roleplay that the Adventure Game always centers on. There is much that has been hidden from our world. Join us as we let it all out into the light.
