Streaming Live, Tuesdays at 9pm Eastern!

TypeCast RPG, which I haven’t blogged about in a while, is still a thing I’m doing on Tuesday nights. It’s a D&D 5e game set in a world of flying cities which are built on the backs of sleeping alien gods.

Join us! Now that we’re doing it remotely, instead of in the studio, everybody has room to flip open their laptops and participate in chat, so it’s quite the multiple-medium experience.

Oh, and there’s a live art-cam, too. Watch me use Copic markers, and sometimes even the Copic airbrush, to do stuff like this just as quickly as I can:

Typecast RPG: The New Season Begins Tonight!

A new season of Typecast RPG begins tonight¹. The party must leave the snowy wastelands (which we all hated) and pay a visit to the Verdenfleet (which hates all of us.)

There will be big changes for some of the characters, including a bit of apotheosis-justified retconning.

Dungeon Master Dan Wells and I discussed my bard’s character last month, and have determined that I play him more like a cleric. So, instead of leveling from Bard 4 to Bard 5, or Bard 4 to Bard 4/Cleric 1, we’re using his meeting-with-deity from the end of last season to justify leveling him from Bard 4 to Bard 3/Cleric 2.

The show starts at 9pm Eastern, and in addition to all the fun role-playing from Brian, Mari, Ethan, Charlie, Dan, and me, there’s an art-cam! And I got some markers that have GLITTER.

Snake People With Snakes For Butts

During last night’s episode of Typecast RPG¹ I asked our DM, Dan Wells, to clarify the “snake people with snakes for butts” thing from last week.

His use of the word “calipigia” improved the imagery quite a bit. 

ABOVE: The audience helped us name her “Asspen Calipigia”

You can watch the whole episode on Twitch (including the after-show) via this link until December 24th. It’ll have a permanent home on the Typecast RPG YouTube channel, but without the after-show.


¹ Twitch only archives our content for two weeks. The Twitch links in this post will go stale, and I’ll probably forget to clean them up, so here’s a footnote in advance to say oops.

Big Dumb Cover Art: The Zero Audio Edition

Over the weekend I had insomnia, and decided to stream my work on the Big Dumb Objects cover. That video is now available on YouTube.

The audio wasn’t working, and it took me a minute to realize I wasn’t being heard, so I’ve positioned the video at that point in the clip above. I decided not to troubleshoot the audio, and to instead focus on making art.

I’ll be doing this again, only with working audio, so be sure to follow twitch.tv/howardtayler for notifications of the live stream. The next pass of inks will really shape the picture, and should be fun to watch.

We’re still on-track with the Big Dumb Objects Kickstarter, and our first pin design proofs are now pictured on the page. It looks like the pins will be unlocked as add-ons today or tomorrow, so be sure to check them out!
