Hi, and welcome to the Twitch page.  This page is all about when I am doing, what I am doing on the stream, and how you can be a part of it.  I am going to give some general info, and down below will be some details, examples, and relevant links to participate, or just keep up.Firstly, I am not doing this for money, but rather I am doing it build a community to share ideas and make the game(s) we play bigger and better.  Any money I am given will go to one of several charities. 

WHY am I streaming on Twitch?

Firstly I am NOT doing it for money.  I have several charities that I support and all profits will go to that, as well as special charity events.  Each month one of the charities will be set as the monthly charity, and all bits donated will be converted directly over. 

The main reason I am doing this is I want to help others in RPG gaming to get into it, and to work with other gamers to make a wholly new community of gamers.  Other than that, is it just something I am passionate about, and this is a more human way of doing it.  And while I will have videos on the YouTube channel, it lacks that experience of talking to a person.

WHAT qualifies me to do this?

Well nothing really.  No more than most other streamers.  I have a skill, a drive, an interest, a passion in something.  But I also have a deal of experience.  I started playing D&D in 1983.  I played other games around it, and since then I have played probably every genre in gaming, across a hundred+ game systems.  Mostly however I have played D&D and Cyberpunk.  Every version of D&D except 4th.  I have DM’d since 1993 and during the height of conventions here in Australia I won awards for Roleplaying, Characterisation and DMing

Lastly and most recently I was a Local Co-coordinator for Adventurer’s League in Canberra, Australia.  I also play tested modules for AL with members from WotC

So WHAT am I going to stream?

I am going to call myself a Variety Streamer, but with a high focus on RPG Gaming.  For the now I am now and then going to be streaming computer game play.  At the moment I will stream some Minecraft, maybe some Diablo 3.  But there are two games coming out that I will go to more often, and one of them (Cyberpunk 2077) will be my focus for a while.  I will be streaming with CritHappens_Gaming for most of that.

RPG gaming wise I will be doing several things, all detailed below:

World-Building Wednesdays and Fractured AcademyThursday Table TopSaturday SessionsFriday ShenanigansMinecraft Mondays

This session is broken into to acts.

ACT 1: World Building Duration 2 hours+*

Wednesdays starts with world building.  This can and will include at LEAST the creation of races, classes, a world, magic, magic items, new mundane items, converting equipment from one system to others and also looking at rules etc.  As a group those who are in chat are welcome to ask questions, make suggestions, help build or ask for help in world building.  If members of chat make a suggestion I like, they will be given credit in the final product released.  If members ask questions, or for help, I ask for nothing.  But also it is a CHAT, not a request system, so it will also be filled with laughing, stories and more. 

*This could be extended if there is a) no Fractured Academy after it, or if we are waiting for people to show up for the Fractured Academy.

ACT 2: Fractured Academy Duration 1 hour.

Act 2 is a more formal class room style session with a group of up to 6 in Discord.  We will have a discussion, interact with the chat, and see if we can help improve each other’s games.  Yes this includes me, the more I learn, the better I am, and what I can pass on.  Topics will include using Roll20, Roleplaying scenarios, characterisation, character building, DMing tips and tricks. 

Every Thursday I will be streaming a game of D&D.  The schedule below has the details, but is a 3.5 hour session.  This will be set in my home-brew world, and will not only hopefully be a fun experience, but also show how a group of gamers can play, while expanding the world around them.  This is played on Roll20 using Discord for voice.

The Saturday sessions are set for Australia early evening till late playing a few different games, depends on the week, and who is the GM.  Our table has 4 GMs playing as part of the group, and we often take turns DMing so nobody gets DM fatigue or burnout.  Games running at the moment include:

  • Tyranny of Dragons campaign (being GM’d by CritHappens_Gaming) is starting on the 9th of September.
  • I am running another campaign in a new area of my world based in an Egyptian style part of the world.  This region is influenced HEAVILY from Gods of Egypt, Stargate SG-1 and the Mummy series of movies.  The good ones, with Brendan Frasier.  We are still doing some setup for this campaign, but it will be starting soon.
  • Dungeon of the Mad Mage has just started being run by one of our player/DMs.
  • The Dancing Hut of Baba Yaga is being run by one of the other DM/Players as well. 
  • Lastly, we will get back to another campaign run by CritHappens_Gaming called The Scali Joules and something resembles a bit of a Dragonball-Z thing.
I will be adding a Friday night game to the list once Cyberpunk 2088 is released.  Once I have that, I will not only be streaming it every Friday night as part of the dual stream with CritHappens_Gaming.  I will also when not working on other projects do some streaming as well, so keep an eye on the Twitter feed for announcements (or Facebook & YouTube).
Mondays, at the same time, I am just going to chill working in Minecraft.  At the moment I am in creative while I build a starting city for everyone who joins the server.  After that I will go to pure survival, on my tropical island and start going for it.  I own a modded 1.14.4 server, which may or may not be upgraded when future releases of Minecraft come out.  More details can be found at https://minecraft.fracturedbear.com.

The Future

To start with, just getting things running smoothly is most important.  But I am already looking at doing some crafting on stream as well, and I am in the process of getting the equipment setup right to be able to do so.  Keep an eye on my social media to keep up to date on that.  Other than that, we’ll see how we go.
