Stream Quest

Wednesday, July 5, 2017 - 11:34

This was a bit shocking, and maybe it shouldn't be.

I got an email today from a web service called Stream Quest. It let's viewers put quests up for streamers with dollar values attached.

Also, it has a payment system and an overlay for displaying the "quests."

In short, it could allow other streams to do what I do, and be rewarded with dollars that viewers put up for the accomplishment of the tasks. It looks like the viewer who puts up the quest is responsible for clearing it too, which takes the onus off the streamer, save to accept the quest.

I have to admit...

Good Session?

Saturday, July 1, 2017 - 01:48

I'm proud to say that I've had two sessions in a row, with role play as the focus.

Characters coming in and permissions changes; also D&D Beyond has a character generator now

Thursday, June 29, 2017 - 21:00

The players are slowly populating their characters upon the site.

Remember, players: You need to provide an up to date character sheet (level and equipment of note) to continue getting a +2 during games.

Permissions were adjusted to prevent other players from curating one anothers characters. If you wish to pass custodial privilege to another player, bring it up in the comments or during game. At this time I don't see any need to allow it.

The D&D Beyond Character Creator is online and it's really good stuff. If you haven't given it a shot, go for it.

1 minute per spell

Tuesday, June 20, 2017 - 08:15

Preparing a new list of (class) spells requires time spent (praying/studying): at least 1 minute per spell level for each spell on your list.

So sayeth the official 5th edition rules.

Tonight is a night, like any other night, but tonight.. is so different is so many ways

Friday, June 2, 2017 - 18:03

I bought a copy of the 'Yawning Portal' today, because I expect to need some elements out of it in the near future.

Viewers tonight will be rewarded for attention paid towards Pelorite references.

I've also limited the board to 3 injections, and set everyone to 1 injection a piece; so writing an injection will over write your old one.

Note, this may be broken.. so we'll see. Cross your fingers.

Stream of Annihilation

Thursday, June 1, 2017 - 11:52

If you haven't heard of it, the Stream of Annihilation is an intense line up of back to back D&D streaming for all of Friday and Saturday.

Intense, eh?  Looks like it should be a sweet line up and I'll be sure to catch Mike Mearls episode on YouTube.  I legitamitely enjoy watching him work; contrastly Chris Perkins annoys me because I'm ridiculously jealous of him.  Mearls I feel a reverance towards, but Perkins I want to outdo.

We allegedly have a stream happening...

Getting grumpy.

Saturday, May 20, 2017 - 11:56

Now that there's a camera in my face, I'm getting stressed.  When they're above you, or behind you, it's one thing.  Not so personal.  When it's up your nose and everything you do makes you look like an Ace Attorney reject, it's a wierd thing to see on the monitor.

I think primarily, I gotta cover those fucking leds, they bug the shit out of me.

Good lawd.

I never consider the sense that people get when they walk into my garage and see a D&D studio, and see cameras, and then they're on the internet, and the world sees...

Purposely Overpowered

Thursday, May 18, 2017 - 08:04

Last nights game had a boss battle with a magic user by the name of Lister.  He had a wand of fireball.  He initially had the spell of fireball, but I keep forgetting it's a level three spell, and not a spell that a level three mage can cast.

The boss is a documented aspect of gameplay known as the 'Wake-up Call'.

He also had a wall of force to protect his bar, a ring of resistance and a vested interest in the great race.  Seems like a lot for a third level magic user?...

A scene from "The Ogre"

eing a DM is fun and hard.  Not a euphemism for the DM, settle down.

When Dorian first showed up, I was personally choked; in attempting to operate a serious campaign and having everyone start on such a strong foot, soon enough the shenanigans that befall my Friday group took hold once again.  I wasn't terribly pleased.

Inter party conflict leads to PvP leads to bruised egos and ultimately 'revenge characters.'
The saving grace here is that the character brought forth is not committing meta-assault, or is even a 'revenge' character, that is, the character...

We did a role playing

Monday, May 8, 2017 - 18:00

We had a session with a remote player and it was good.

A two man game may seem like a weak start, but it's a good way to warm yourself up to a new concept.

Technical difficulties aside, I think it went over well, I've just got to figure out how to curtail my Linux handicap.

In other news, I'm adjusting the camera arrangement, yet again:)

Stay tuned; see you Wednesday!
