What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“TaleSpire has already benefited hugely from the feedback of the community, and this is something we seek to continue. While we have a strong vision for where we want to take the game, we want to keep this dialog going so we can continue to make something that is honed to the needs of real players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We foresee the game being in Early Access for up to a year after the initial version release. This will give us ample time to deliver on our roadmap from the Kickstarter as well as giving time for player feedback to shape the game throughout the early access period.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version will contain the base set of features we envision for TaleSpire. Between the Early-Access release and the full release, we aim to fill in the Medieval-Fantasy collection of content as well as work with the community to finalize stretch-goals and some other features to deepen the roleplaying experience.

Development of TaleSpire will continue past the full release, but it will mark what we consider a complete set of features.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version allows players to collaboratively build their worlds, taking command of atmosphere, music, and time of day. They can take on the mantle of multiple heroes and creatures, managing their basic stats and expressing themselves through the growing emote system.

GMs have control over cutscene mode, and the initiative tracker, which allows them to keep order during encounters. They also have access to a specialized mode that allows them to manage things unseen by player's eyes.

All this takes place in persistent online boards, which can be created at a moment's notice. Everything is created and synchronized in real-time as you battle and dice-roll your way to glory.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The plan is to keep the price the same both during and beyond the Early Access period.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“There are many avenues for feedback with TaleSpire. On our Discord, we have places to give feedback on the game, a channel for feature requests and suggestions, and channels for sharing content made within the game. We have a public bug-tracker where people can report issues they find and get direct feedback as we fix the problem.

There are also indirect ways that people can be involved. Just by people streaming the game, we have been able to get great insights into how people are playing, and this has guided the development of many current and ongoing features.

TaleSpire will be evolving a lot, and we would love to know where the community wants to take it.”

About This Game

Overview / What Is TaleSpire?

TaleSpire is a beautiful way to play pen and paper RPGs online. Bring your stories to life and embark upon campaigns together with your friends, regardless of where you are in the world.


With Talespire, the beauty and physicality of tabletop gaming meet the endless possibilities of a digital world. Here you can collaboratively build your worlds without compromising the handcrafted aesthetic of using traditional miniatures.

As a player, you can take on the mantle of multiple heroes and creatures, manage your stats, and express yourself using the growing emote system. Perform dice rolls directly on the board and interact with your environment — at least, as far as your GM will let you!

As a GM, you can dazzle and thrill your friends by building expansive maps, setting up shots, and controlling immersive soundscapes to bring all your delightful and devious designs to life.

TaleSpire is not tied to a specific game or ruleset. Whether you’re running a one-shot or a sprawling campaign, if it's on a square grid then we have your back. We are now in Early Access, so now is your chance to raise up your sword, rally your friends, and take your next adventure online with us.

Building and play are one


Setting the stage for your story takes no time at all with Talespire, but even if you forget to prep, it can all be added in while you play. Want to destroy a wall to reveal a secret passage? Do it! Want to rain down piles of gold from the heavens? You have the power. At any moment during your adventure, you (or multiple GMs) can jump into building mode and change the world without interrupting anything else. Our persistent online boards can be created at a moment’s notice, and everything is synchronized in real-time as you dice-roll your way to glory.

A slew of tools to help you on your adventures

It’s dangerous to go alone, but luckily we have a bunch of tools that can help, and all are as pleasing as they are useful. Beautiful dice, rulers and area markers, a range of emotes, and special modes for turn-based combat and cinematic sequences are at your disposal.

A growing library of assets

Pick from a plethora of pieces to create your scenes! The current roster stands at 150 miniatures, 750 tiles and props, and 50 unique audio tracks. Our library is ever-expanding; we produce fresh asset packs every month.

Share your creations

TaleSpire boards are designed to be easily shared, whether with friends or with the wider community on sites like TalesBazaar or TalesTavern. You can copy sections of your boards (slabs) and paste them as text outside of TaleSpire. Simply paste the text back into TaleSpire to summon the slab to your hand.

This tale has only just begun

Being in Early Access we still have plenty of adventures ahead of us. We have an active Discord community, which you can find here (https://discord.gg/talespire), and alongside your feedback we’re looking forward to developing the game’s features. So come, journey with us a while.
