Heroes of the Mist is a an audience interactive live tabletop role-playing game show broadcast weekly, Sundays from 6-10 pm (Pacific Time) on http://twitch.tv/rpgresearch
The show is provided as a fundraiser for the 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization RPG Research.
The audience can influence the show in nearly real-time, by accumulating and spending “Experience Points” (XP), to add a wide range of “random encounters” and “randome events” for the PCs. Audience members can accumulate XP through loitering in the Twitch chatroom, gaining aadditional XP through other methods, and donating to RPG Research to purchase additional XP more quickly.
The show will also have artists drawing the described scenes real-time, as the story unfolds, and there will be ambient scenes on the green screen behind the players.
We will be using Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 1st Edition, with a wide range of customizations from Dragon Magazine and more.
The campaign setting, Worlds of Beru, created by Hawke Robinson has been used with hundreds of players over a 30 year span. This is a multiverse setting. Beginning in a classic Arthurian style fantasy setting, but the fabric of the multiverse is thin, and many other possibilities and settings will unfold as the players continue.
The show is tentatively scheduled to launch April 15th. We hope you will join us and help spread the word.
