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.
Tonight at 9pm Eastern on the TypecastRPG Twitch Stream I’ll be talking about worldbuilding with fellow worldbuilders, scene-setters, and cosmos-creators Mari Murdock, Charlie Holmberg, and Brian McClellan.
Our Dungeon Master is out of town, and our paladin is honeymooning, so it’s possible we’ll have a USB port open for an Art Cam!
Join us at 9pm Eastern for an hour (or two!) of animated¹ discussion, Q&A², and personal growth³.
¹ Art Cam notwithstanding, there will be no actual animation. Just (hopefully) me drawing stuff.
² If you want your Q’s A’d, join the chat!
³ None of us have had this discussion with each other, so inevitably we will grow from it. This is a thing that happens during discussions.
Dan and I are back from the Writing Excuses Retreat, so tonight’s episode of Typecast RPG will have us in it again!
Tune in tonight, at 9pm Eastern for the live stream of the Gods of Vareon D&D game.
We’re still struggling to get the art cam working, but we’ve narrowed the problem to the USB ports on the host machine. Producer Donald is still troubleshooting it, and I’m hopeful that this week we’ll have LIVE VIDEO of me doing color sketches of in-game events.
If we can’t get it to work, well, I’ll just draw things off-camera and then hold them up when I’m done.
Previous sessions are available on YouTube, but if you’re there for the live stream you’re eligible for giveaways, including some of those sketches.
