Heroes of a Forgotten Realm

Builders and Warriors is a Fantasy Universe. A new kind of universe that we build together. We are starting with a collection of 10,000 3D animated fantasy avatars. More than just avatars, these heroes can be used in our collection of fantasy games.

Hero Grid

Your Key to Adventure

Each avatar is a unique hero with their own traits, stats, and epic gear created from our in-game models. Fighters, rogues, and mages are all ready to be used in games across the Builders & Warriors Universe. Owners of these NFTs will get the NFT, a profile pic NFT, and a pass to bring that character into our first game: Darkforge Dungeons. Holders of this Genesis NFT will always get preferential treatment for new NFT character drops, land drops, and other game/universe drops.


Darkforge Dungeons

This roguelike dungeon crawler is the first proof of concept game in the Builders & Warriors Universe. Fight through deep dungeons and escape with awesome loot.

This web-based game is fully cross platform between desktop and mobile. No need to clutter your phone with another app, just visit the site and start playing.


The Realm of Hereval

Into the Deep

The realm of Hereval is filled with dungeons ready to explore. Fight a variety of monsters with your skills and wits with a turn-based combat system designed for quick, fun encounters.

Hero NFT

Loot. Craft. Mint.

Forge Unique Heroes

Build a Universe With Us

Separator 02 White

It doesn’t stop at games, Builders and Warriors is a new kind of fantasy universe that we build together. Warhammer, Warcraft, Dungeons and Dragons, and Magic the Gathering are all owned by giant corporations, and are closed off by copyright, licensing, patents, lawsuits, and lawyers.

New technologies such as crypto tokens and NFTs have unlocked novel ways for developers and players to align incentives and share economic rewards. We want to work together and share in the rewards so we can create something none of us could do on our own.

We will be releasing the branding, assets, and IP behind BWU under the permissive cc0 license, creating an open source world as the basis for electronic and real world games, card games, 3d printed minis, stories, and more. Let’s make a fantasy world we can all participate in. Let’s make and play games, create art and collections, and tell stories together.

Our Team

The Builders & Warriors Universe has been created behind closed doors for the last 2 1/2 years by a team of experienced game makers and storytellers. We have founded and sold companies, raised money, made games, and made game brands through the past three decades all so we could pursue our passion of making fun games.
