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:
Follow and subscribe at twitch.tv/typecastrpg, and keep us company while we play an intensely social game while being very socially distant.
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.
Tonight at 9pm Eastern I’ll be playing D&D over at twitch.tv/typecastrpg¹, and we’ve got the art-cam working beautifully.
You can watch me create masterpieces² like “snake-men with snakes for butts” in real-time!
(No, that’s not an actual creature from the game. That’s what the lying, trap-setting NPC who wanted us to get eaten by ophidians said the ophidians looked like.)
Tonight the party is deep in the icy cave-city of the ophidians, and our goal (at least as I understand it from last week) is to steal the airship macguffin³ before the necromancer and his army of undead can steal it. None of us want to be trapped in this snowy wasteland. We’ve got a world to save⁴.
¹ Typecast RPG is Charlie Holmberg, Brian McClellan, Mari Murdock, Ethan Sproat, Howard Tayler, and Dungeon Master Dan Wells.
² This landscape, inspired by one of the characters’ love interests (a felinoid named “Sunrise on the Curve of the Horizon”) is closer to being okay fine also not a masterpiece.
³ The GODS OF VAERON setting we’ve created features sleeping gods who drift through the sky with cities on their backs. They fly via the magic imbued in something called “Xephyrite,” and their bodies are mined for it.
⁴ Should the flying gods wake up, not only will the mining operations cease, but also about half the world will die in assorted disasters. Our party of adventures thinks we might be helping that NOT happen. We could be wrong.
I just finished streaming BIG DUMB COVER ART SIX over at twitch.tv/howardtayler, and had a great time right at the end discovering that halleleujah the cover is done!
The stream ran for about two hours, and is available for re-watching on my Twitch channel for the next couple of weeks. I’ll get it up onto YouTube eventually.
