It’s Tuesday! That means tonight at 9pm Eastern I’ll be streaming¹ our Gods of Vareon D&D game with Dan Wells, Brian McClellan, Mari Murdock, Charlie Holmberg, and Ethan Sproat.
Last week Ethan took a shot of 140k Scoville hot sauce every time someone subscribed. This week we’ll do something different. I’ve offered to do a sketch based on each new subscriber’s suggestion, but ultimately it’s up to Dan².
Previous sessions are available on YouTube, but as an incentive to tune in on Twitch, the live show has a live-only after-party³, in which we take questions from the chat, and get randomly silly.
¹ Technically, our producer, the inimitable and ever-youthful Donald Mustard the Third will be doing all the streaming. The rest of us are just on camera when he works his magic.
² Unless Dan picks hot sauce, in which case it’s up to me, and I pick no hot sauce.
³ There was no after-party last week. Our Twitch stream crashed last week when something in the neighborhood dragged our upload speeds waaay down. We never did figure out what it was, but we DID determine that it was happening everywhere, and not just where we were streaming, so it’s safe to say that it was not a problem with Mr. Mustard’s magic.
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!
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.
