  • Funding will be used to launch The Glimmering — the first 5E tabletop roleplaying game for the blockchain—and its initial NFT collection.

Gripnr, a Web3 technology company bringing tabletop games to the blockchain, today announced its initial $2 .5M investment round alongside its first 5E game and genesis NFT collection, The Glimmering.


The oversubscribed investment round closed in 60 days and is coming from XBTO Humla Ventures, Sopris Capital, Voodoo Ventures, Better Angels, Abstraction Ventures, and Carl Sparks (Managing Partner of Interlock), as well a series of New Orleans based investors.

With The Glimmering 's launch, Gripnr is leading the charge on establishing an industry-standard protocol for all tabletop RPG games looking to build on the blockchain. With their initial funding,  Gripnr will design the gameplay, build the on-chain gaming platform, and launch the genesis NFT collection.  In addition, they will use their treasury to finance and support the release of more tabletop games and other game designers and artists who want to utilize the company's new protocol.

The Glimmering 's genesis NFTs of 10,000 individual characters include hand-drawn attributes designed specifically for gameplay. Each character will have unique rarities which include classes, ancestry, skills, and background, and ongoing character data will be kept on the blockchain. Members of the Gripnr community who mint the genesis collection will receive benefits right away while waiting for the on-chain play to begin.

"We are focused on building an active, respectful, and super awesome community of tabletop gaming fans and NFT collectors who want to join our vision of bringing 5E gameplay to the blockchain," said Brent McCrossen , CEO of Gripnr. "Gripnr was created to support the players, game masters, artists, and game designers that have made TTRPGs for the last 50 years."

  • Join Twitter Spaces or Clubhouse hours

"After the acquisition of Lucid, I was looking for my next frontier," said Creator and President, Patrick Comer . "As a lifelong Dungeons & Dragons player, it was clear to me that tabletop roleplaying games is the perfect use case for the blockchain, so I decided to jump in and bring other gamers along for the ride."

Gripnr's team of large venture-backed tech founders includes entrepreneur, Patrick Comer , whose research technology platform Lucid was acquired last year for over $1 billion ; CEO and music industry veteran, Brent McCrossen ; Creative Director and agency veteran Kyle Mortensen ; Lead artist and rock poster designer, Justin Kamerer ; and experienced Dungeons & Dragons game creator and former Wizards of the Coast game developer, Stephen Radney-MacFarland and CTO Luke Ledet
