Streaming Feelers

So, I'm sure the vast majority of you are aware of that epic Strongholds & Streaming kickstarter. With a couple days to go, it's up over 1.8 million dollars. 

Since my self-publishing efforts will be sidelined for at least a year, starting July 1st, (due to time and financial concerns) I've been thinking about streaming my own weekly games this summer.

I wouldn't be able to put too much energy into this (outside of running the actual game); otherwise the wife isn't going to let me pursue this, either.  However, I'm hoping with a minimum of additional fuss, I could provide an awesome stream of gaming for the viewing public.

Though, I would love to run my own games, especially Alpha Blue or Crimson Dragon Slayer, I've got to put financial needs above my own vanity.  Therefore, I'd be running Dungeons & Dragons - however, it'll be old school, using a wide variety of home-brewed and OSR/O5R content, as well as, adhering to a plethora of vintage aesthetics, play styles, and GMing techniques. 

Hopefully, this would do double or triple-duty - providing a fun, creative outlet for others to watch while teaching gamers how D&D 5e can be played in a more Basic D&D fashion.  Plus, a little extra financial security wouldn't hurt.

Let me know what you think!  If I can convince my wife (who has our family's best interests at heart) that streaming is where it's at, there might be a new KS next month...

Meanwhile, I've been making videos on my YouTube channel and trying to post more RPG related stuff on twitter @VengerSatanis in an effort to keep from going broke while not totally selling out to The Man.

Thanks for your continued support,
