Patreon Incoming + New Show Announcement

With our transition to a new campaign next week, I’m using this opportunity to announce another weekly D&D show: Crafting Annihilation! This will be a live streamed behind-the-scenes series where I go through my prep work for that week’s session of Tomb of Annihilation.

Next week is our Session 0 where we’ll introduce and create our new player characters. After that the normal routine will be Crafting Annihilation on Thursday mornings (tentatively) and Tomb of Annihilation on our usual Friday evenings.

I’ll also be launching a Patreon next week to help support all the extra video content I produce on my YouTube channel (and here on my website), including DMs Guild Reviews, Roll20 Reviews, RogueWatson Reviews (board games), and the new Crafting Annihilation series.

With your patronage I can increase my output of videos with a more consistent release schedule (such as a DMs Guild Review every Tuesday).

Leave comments here or on YouTube for suggestions on the kind of reward tiers or special perks you want to see on the Patreon page.

RogueWatson Reviews is my new board game video series

After reviewing a series of DMs Guild D&D adventures late last year my YouTube channel has been relatively quiet in 2018. I’ve been gearing up for a new project – a board game review series called RogueWatson Reviews.

In this series I’ll highlight recent and semi-recent board games (going back two, maybe three years), including an overview of how they play, running through a sample round, and giving my Pros, Cons, and Final Thoughts.

I’m kicking off this series with Dice Throne –

These videos are much more heavily edited than my DMs Guild and Roll20 Reviews, and require a lot more time and effort to put together. I won’t be able to put them out once a week, for example, but I am shooting for about twice a month, at least to start.

If you have been enjoying my tabletop RPG reviews – fear not! I plan on jumping back into those as well. In a perfect scenario I can stagger these series together, producing videos at a consistent rate. But as a freelancer my work load ebbs and flows, so I’m not ready to commit to a solid schedule.

As always I appreciate kind words and constructive feedback on YouTube as well as here on my blog. Thank you!

New Gameplay Video – Endless Legend

Our latest episode of Chamber of Game, the video series hosted by Leviathyn, takes a look at Endless Legend. Developed by Amplitude Studios who previously made well-received 4x space strategy game Endless Space, Endless Legend takes the action down to the planet of Auriga featuring fantastical factions and gameplay that’s very similar to Civilization while still introducing lots of new concepts and mechanics.

In this video Chris and I show off some of the early game while discussing how a race of murderous insect people are maybe just misunderstood.

New Gameplay Video – Wasteland 2

With the help of my usual co-host and best friend Chris Renner, I’ve uploaded another episode of Chamber of Game to Leviathyn’s YouTube channel. This video looks at Wasteland 2, the Kickstarter-funded, Brian Fargo produced sequel to 1988′s Wasteland.

Wasteland 2 is a deliciously old-school cRPG involving custom character creation, branching dialogue, choice-driven narrative and turn-based tactical combat. As a huge fan of the early Fallout games, this is a dream come true.

Check out the link below for the Leviathyn write-up, and enjoy the embedded video.
