What RPG Ambience is

RPG Ambience is a media player that enables roleplayers to bring their sessions to life using sound and visuals. It is free software that runs directly in your browser.

How RPG Ambience works

RPG Ambience is built around scenes. Scenes are made up of images, sounds, and text grouped together in any combination. Scenes are played and stopped using keyboard shortcuts. Adventures are collections of related scenes.

The interface of RPG Ambience consists of two parts: the editor and the player.

  • The editor (the left part of the screen) contains your adventures and the scenes in them, including controls to edit them.
  • The player (the right part of the screen) is where the scenes in your adventures are played. The player can be opened in a separate window.

Playing scenes

There are four ways to play a scene:

  • Click on the scene under the Playback tab.
  • Press the button below the player.
  • Press the hotkey associated with the scene.
  • Type the scene's name and press on your keyboard.

When starting a scene by typing its name, it's enough to type only the first few letters of the name.

Stopping scenes

There are three ways to stop a scene:

  • Press the button under the Playback tab.
  • Press the button below the player.
  • Press on your keyboard.

Using any of these commands will only stop the topmost scene that is currently playing. To also stop the scene below it, use the command again.

Saving adventures

If you choose to save your adventures in Google Drive, all of the adventures that you create, including the sound and image files in them, are automatically saved on a regular basis and every time you close RPG Ambience.

Adventure backup

If you are unable to save your adventures due to network failure or some other error, use the buttons under the Backup tab to save them as files to your computer. You can later upload them manually to Google Drive.

Where to find art

If you want art to use in RPG Ambience but don't know where to begin looking, try using the search forms under the Art Search tab.
