Additional Information

Auditions are for an upcoming weekly live tabletop RPG show broadcast over Twitch to raise awareness of, and and as a fundraiser for, the 501(c)3 non-profit organization RPG Research (http://rpgresearch.com).

We are using Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 1st Edition in a custom homebrew multiverse campaign setting (Worlds of Beru), with various house rules, and extensions from TSR books and Dragon magazine.

Players will need to pass the interview and audition process before being accepted. While we may not have time for everyone to finish the background check paperwork before the show launches, your continued participation in the show includes the requirement of passing a background check.

You not only need to be an exceptional role-playing game player, you also need to have a good professional manner, keep your language clean even during stressful scenes, and have a dynamic personality that is interesting for audiences to view and listen to (and often root for).

These sessions are a to raise awareness of tabletop RPGs and as a fundraiser for the 501(c)3 non-profit organization RPG Research.

Sessions may include short discussions on the bio/psycho/social aspects of role-playing games, their uses for achieving educational and therapeutic goals, and other information relevant to RPG Research's efforts.

All participants need to be able to arrive or connect remotely at 6:30 pm (Pacific Time) weekly, Sunday nights.

While the show stream ends at 10:00 pm, participants are expected to engage in post-show chat-room and special-access stream interactions with fans for about 15 minutes after the show, up to a maximum of 30 minutes after (10:30 pm Pacific Time).

All ages welcome.

This is a volunteer role requiring a weekly commitment for a MINIMUM of 3 months from when the campaign/show launches June 24th, 2018.

We can accept one remote player, so if you can at least make it in person to at least one audition, and if you have a decent Internet/video/audio setup at home, you could still apply!
