This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

My classic D&D & classic RPG youtube channel
« on: June 14, 2021, 05:45:02 PM »
(Hey mods, if this needs to be in advertisements I totally understand if it gets moved)

Hi folks! I've had my own classic D&D and classic RPG channel for a while now. It's here, specifically:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCs3EPNjwUlyNokf3_IfAqfw

I started it on Facebook when the Andromeda Strain hit last year as a way to stay in touch with my friends who tabletop gamed, and dovetailed it into livestreams to my Youtube channel this year.

I'm slowly but surely creeping up towards 1000 subs. The way youtube works, when I hit 1000, there's a lot more tools that are available for creators (better thumbnail system, the ability to do polls, better non-video engagement, etc.)

My content is exclusively hobby related, I have lots of livestreams (5 a week) and I'll be uploading interviews I've done with other creators back last year on Facebook (and doing more as time goes on), including people like Jim Ward, Darlene, Al Hammack, Paul Stormberg, Tracy Lesch and many others! I'll be uploading those soon, as the bulk were on Facebook initially.

I would like to celebrate reaching 1000 subscribers by hosting a virtual mini-con! A whole day+ of games, DM'ed by yours truly, along with my co-host on Wednesdays, Kyle Schuant. We'll run games like Traveller, Twilight 2000, of course OD&D and AD&D, Gamma World, and some new stuff that interests us. I think Kyle would be up to running a game of Conflict, his action oriented combat RPG, as well.

So if you haven't already subscribed, please visit the link, subscribe, and hit the bell icon. Feel free to check out my previous videos, and thanks in advance!

e: Fixed the link!

Add one more sub.

While I love the RPG edition choices, your Black Box playlist made the subscription a no-brainer: I feel like I'm looking at my own music CD collection.  Nice choices!

<edit> Speaking of playlists, might want to consider breaking your RPG videos into playlists as you seem to have a some themes going throughout your recent videos and it would be nice to have the categories broken down.  An introduction video on your home page about what your site is all about would be good.  Would probably help with subs and views for those not privy to this forum.

Thanks!  Yeah, the WT! Black Box is something special. 

I've got to take some time and organize my channel better, too, so thank you very much for your suggestion.

Any chance of an Odysee mirror? Migrating away from YouTube.

I'll never say never.  I don't think I've got the bandwidth to split a 3-way livestream, so it'd be archives.

It's a fucking brilliant show. You guys should watch it. We tell you the right and proper way to play. Also we talk a lot of bollocks, like today.

Seeing the Young Gods video immediately piqued my interest. Getting that WTBB was like a defining moment of my teenage musical life. Subbed.

I don't know if it's youtube or Kyle but that thumbnail is brilliant.  Towards the end of last night's livestream Kyle was talking about NPCs in the ongoing Conflict campaign, and that jolly looking fellow in the upper left is an insurgent, reading an IRC pamphlet on the rules of acceptable behavior in warfare.  I commented that if he could follow it, he might be a little confused.  "Wait, don't shoot when they throw down their weapons and put their hands up?  When would be a better time?  They've disarmed themselves and made themselves bigger targets!"

But yeah, we have a lot of fun.

This afternoon's stream, I'll be creating a FASA Star Trek character!  It'll be a hoot.

Bill has been doing a run of "How to play AD&D" videos. Here he goes into the rarely-read, often-ignored back of the Player's Handbook. If this were read by players (and DMs!) more often, they'd have more productive game sessions. It also answers, indirectly, a lot of the weird misconceptions people have about AD&D.

We did some more Conflict play. Bill's Lt Walters continued his adventures in Frankistan, hunting down the GRU operative Girkin.
