A lot of you know that there is a plan to play some Dungeons and Dragons on stream!!
Everyone playing with us is part of Lift Gaming - Murderklok, Morphos_XL, and Rizorty!!
So I sort of wanted to make a forum to keep that updated, and ask for suggestions, and or comments on the games and how you guys feel about it. We LOVE new ideas and want to know if there were things you find confusing or etc. Also I wanted to get a minor updated schedule so everyone can come here and see when the campaign is being played.
Also I wanted to post this here to discuss HOW we are planning/made it happen so anyone who wants to do the same thing, or something similar has access to this information.
Schedule: March the 1st at 7pm CST/8pm EST is our next game!
I also want to thank everyone who has helped to make this come together so smoothly.
And also, Botchy, Dr.Fark, and Rocketbear for the arts!
So we wanted to put a thing up, of how we accomplished the DnD game
So here we go!!
-The first and foremost thing we worried about, was the players. We asked a bunch of streamers before we finally got our crew together.
-We then ordered layouts for the stream. We wanted a layout that had panels so that all of us were talking, it's our "Role Play" Screen where we are talking about what we are doing or to NPCs and such. Then we also wanted a screen that would show the Roll 20 game map, and all of our cams as well. This is our "Game Screen" On these layouts, we also made it a static image that DoctorFark fixes for us with the stats next to each of the characters and their small blurbs. And lastly, we had Fark make us a logo to use for the game.
-Then We had everyone fill out their character sheets and sent Botulism_sauce to work on the character icons for the in-game world. RocketBear81 at the same time, started making DnD-esque sketches to put on the layout that Fark was creating.
-Then we started to work on map creation in roll20.net Ed had to think of the world that he wanted to create, and what encounters the party might come across. And in this, had to flush out maps and dungeons on roll 20.
-Once the maps and layouts were complete, we set a date for the game!
-Day of the game, we use a program called "Zoom" to have a conference call with everyone's cameras.
-In OBS, we made individual window captures that would capture each person's camera directly so that we could place them inside of their designated spot in the layouts. We did this to all of the scenes and added everything together for the game.
Though each of us as streamers are very heavy on talking to their chat - we decided against doing this for the game because we wanted to keep the immersion of the game going. As well, there would be too much chat to keep up with for us be able to progress in the story if we all took time to talk to chat during the game.
