What is an ARPG?

PaperDemon is an online community that hosts creative challenges for artists and writers. These challenges are structured as an Art Role Playing Game (or ARPG for short.) In an ARPG, you create a character that you will use to fulfill art and writing based prompts and questlines. Complete art and writing challenges to earn rewards to keep yourself motivated to create!
