I play Bard Odrak Ironthroat over at TypecastRPG, and in a very literally typecast manner, I’m a playing a bard who can draw. During each game session I sketch key moments, interpreting them for posterity so that the truth of our party’s epic ineptitude will be obscured by the tales our descendants tell about us.
THESE SKETCHES CAN BE YOURS
For our first giveaway, follow TypeCastRPG on Twitter or Instagram, and then give this tweet an RT and a like.
Obviously, the pictures will have more meaning for you if you’re watching us play.
Previous sessions are available on YouTube, and we’re live on Twitch every Tuesday at 9pm Eastern. As an incentive to tune in on Twitch, the live show has a live-only “after party,” in which we take questions from the chat, and get randomly silly, secure in the knowledge that THIS part won’t end up on YouTube¹.
We haven’t gotten the ArtCam to work yet (my fault – my camera had 0 HP and failed its death saves) but future feeds may show off exactly how sloppy I am as I create these cards.
Future giveaways may happen on the TypecastRPG Instagram or Facebook accounts. Your home page for all things TypecastRPG is TypecastRPG.com, where you can find links to our social media feeds, as well as helpful summaries of previous game sessions.
¹ I have it on good authority that the internet is really good at forgetting embarrassing things.
Tonight’s episode is the next installment of the Gods of Vaeron story, using the D&D 5e ruleset. Dan Wells is our Dungeon Master, and the players will be Natasha Ence, Mari Murdock, Charlie Holmberg, Ethan Sproat, and Howard Tayler (←me).
I’ve been experimenting a bit with sketch cards during the game sessions. It’s possible we’ll have our art cam up and running tonight. Eventually these cards will be giveaways for our Twitch subscribers. It’s possible we’ll figure THAT out tonight, too, and start putting things in the mail!
I’m in Indianapolis for GenCon Indy this week. You can find me at Booth 1749 with Jim Zub, Sandra Tayler, and our outstanding booth crew: Darrin, Robin, and Mike.
I don’t have any panel scheduling this year, which is kind of awesome for me. Also, it’s awesome for YOU, because you’re more likely to be able to find me in the exhibit hall¹.
I’m bringing my markers this year, along with about 100 sketch cards. Do you want a 100% original piece of artwork? Maybe have me do a Schlock-ish version of your Shadowrun character? NO PROBLEM. Just bring money².
Jim and I will have all kinds of merchandise: Skullkickers troves, Schlock Mercenary boxed sets, Wayward books, Planet Mercenary RPG worldbooks, dice, and cards, and we’ll have just a few pre-release copies of the brand new Wayward board game.
We’ll both be at GenCon Indy through the end of the show on Sunday, but don’t wait until then to find us. We run out of stuff every year.
¹ I do sometimes take breaks. If you follow me on Twitter you’ll be able to see whether or not I’ve scheduled myself for one.
² I’m terrible about pricing these things. Let’s just say $20, because if I say less than that my booth captain Darrin AND my project manager Sandra will be cross with me. But as always, sketches in the backs of Schlock books are free.
It’s with deep regret that today I fly into Indianapolis instead of streaming with the TypecastRPG team¹.
You see, tonight Charlie Holmberg will be running a D&D 5e session² in which all the worldbuilding comes from Candyland.
Yeah, THAT Candyland.
By the time I arrive at my hotel the session will be over. I’m going to miss the whole thing.
Don’t be like me.

¹ I became a full-time cast member a few weeks ago. You’ll see me onscreen again next week.
² We’ve also done an L5r one-shot, which the Twitch chat folks declared to be their favorite³ session of ours. It’s up on YouTube.
