Greetings PaperDemons. If you can believe it, it's been a whole year since we first launched our Art RPG with the Character creator challenge. I'm proud of how far we've come and I'm excited to tell you about all the cool new items we've been working on that are now available to you.
WOW Thank you all so much for your generosity. We reached our funding goal in just 2 days.

New Premium items
I'm pleased to announce we now have brand new premium items available for sale that you can purchase with our new Trokens currency to help you customize your character.
Have you been interested in playing the PaperDemon Art RPG but don't have an original character to work with? We have these lovely pre-made characters designed by Gusteon available for 180 Trokens each.
Half of our challenges are seasonal with the portals only being stable for a limited time. Use a Junket Tank to repair an unstable portal and visit it whenever you want. In other words, you can use this item to participate in a challenge which has already passed, giving you extra time.

This beautiful crystal lets you customize the elemental powers of your character. It's name was inspired by our staff member, Alexandria, who goes by "Sha" for short.

Other new items
Here are some other great items we've added to the store to enhance your character that you can purchase with gold.
Craft armor with Aster. These colors are more commonly found in the Paperverse and can be purchased with gold.
Craft these together with Aster and an Armor kit to create elemental armor. All are 100 gold each.
Artwork for these is still being made but you can still purchase them from the shop.
Ready to spend your gold or Trokens? Head on over to the shop.

A general note about monetization
Our Art RPG may be free, but it's not free to operate. Your purchase of our premium items help support our staff and cover our hosting costs. We greatly appreciate any support you can provide us.
We understand that you might have concerns about our game becoming "pay to play". We want to keep the game fair while still having a way to monetize. Generally, our premium items don't offer any mechanical advantage over other items and premium items are still accessible without paying. Rest assured we've got experienced folks from the ARPG community, consulting with us to make sure paying money doesn't result in a game-play advantage.
Details about ways to obtain Trokens without paying money can be found on the Trokens page.
