Once the seminars begin we will be live blogging coverage via google docs! Each seminar will get it’s own seperate google doc and links are provided below, as well as videos of each seminar and our quick Expeditious Interviews! Enjoy!
Also, please keep in mind that the text transcripts will need some cleaning up as they are full of typos and contain areas where I just couldn’t keep up with the dialogue, and also please take it all in knowing it is not all 100% verbatim ( can only type so fast, also my brain can. I will provide links to video’s of each seminar that DO give the verbatim dialogue at a rate as fast as hotel Wi-Fi can give us.
The biggest DDXP yet is coming in just about a week, and Obsidian Portal will be there to cover it all! Well, we’ll be there covering whatever we’re allowed to being as that there will be NDA’s involved, but rest assured we will try and get you as much juicy info on the next iteration of Dungeons & Dragons as possible.
Here I am at DDXP and bringing to you as fast as my fingers can type, live updates from the Expert Dungeon Mastering. We know that the D&D VT won but being that DM’ing (GM’ing) is a universal language to players of all RPG’s it just seems like a better fit.
So spam those refresh buttons with a vengeance! Everything will be in chronological order, enjoy!
Chris perkins introduces himself and Greg Bilsland.
The seminar will be conversational.
Perkins asks for the #1 problem people have with DM’ing, first response “Remembering Everything!” (I wonder if this guy has heard of Obsidian Portal?!).
Since everyone else is pontificating about the new web-only character builder, I thought I’d jump in and give my totally unqualified opinion. I don’t even have a DDI subscription, mainly because I’m on a Mac. But, I do know a little about running a tabletop gaming web application, so I’ll weigh in from that perspective.
