Streamed gaming, whether on Twitch or YouTube or elsewhere, combines gaming, acting, live performance, crowd-hyping, technical wrangling, and much more! In this panel, learn the top tips of what some fantastic streamers wish they knew when they were just starting out, and bring your questions!

Squick, streams, and storytelling. A snailologist by training, Darcy Ross is the Community Relations Coordinator for Monte Cook Games. She works to welcome new people into the hobby, and braves the byzantine world of Twitch streaming to see what this strange new platform can bring our hobby. She writes for Gnome Stew, contributed to the transhuman dating show RPG Singularity, and is playtesting her first larp, An Empty Page.

David (DC) Collins is a game designer with a focus on urban fantasy. Exploring how fiction and reality can learn from one another is their main goal. Their current project, Mutants in the Night, dares to venture through that territory by granting the marginalized the power to fight back with the very mutations that society deems inhuman. DC lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area, and focuses their energies on online community growth.

Aser Tolentino is a blind attorney, adaptive tech instructor, podcaster on The Redacted Files, gamer, and writer.

James D’Amato of One-Shot Podcast, the world’s foremost Kobold advocate, moved to Chicago in 2010 to train at Second City and iO in the art of improvisational comedy. He now uses that education to introduce new people to role-playing, and teach die-hard Grognards new tricks.

James spends his days reading comics, designing new games, and excitedly babbling about stories with his best friend.

He once helped get this comics shop off the ground. Find him on Reddit and Twitter.

Lauren Bond is a game master, streamer, cosplayer and all around nerd. She has been playing table top RPGs for many years, and has run a wide variety of games on twitch from Dungeons and Dragons to Sailor Moon. She loves intense feelings, and big stories and wants to empower others to tell stories through RPGs.
