Seminars

RPGs and Fiction Writing: Two Great Tastes

Fri 8-10 AM
Ed Greenwood with Steven Brust, Mike Mearls

How does the author of an RPG create interactive content from an established fiction setting? How does a fiction author create an engaging narrative from an interactive RPG campaign? We sit down and talk with Steven Brust, author of the Vlad Taltos and Khaavren novels; and Ed Greenwood, Elminster of the Forgotten Realms and author of numerous novels in that setting; and Mike Mearls, Senior Manager for the Research and Design team at Wizards of the Coast. We'll dive into topics ranging from idea inspirations to writing techniques, but our focus will be on that transition: Moving from interactive to non-interactive and back again.

Dungeons & Dragons

Fri 10 AM – Noon
Wizards of the Coast featuring Chris Perkins with Jeremy Crawford, Mike Mearls

Join Chris Perkins, principal story designer for Dungeons & Dragons, Jeremy Crawford, co-designer and Managing Editor of Dungeons & Dragons and Mike Mearls, the senior manager and lead designer for Dungeons & Dragons for a question and answer session about Dungeons and & Dragons, past and present, as well as past and present D&D story campaigns, including Tyranny of Dragons, Elemental Evil, Rage of Demons, and Curse of Strahd.

EGYPT

EGYPT


ince childhood 3 places have been on my mind where I feel I have some stories attached …It is like a Deja vu, like I’ve been there in my past lives!

“India-Mexico-Egypt”

That was even before I moved to India…

These places were ringing in my head since the time I was around 8 years old!

Life dragged me to India and got me settled here!

I was so excited to see what is in Egypt … and how I would feel there!

My flight landed at 7am …I had no clue what the date was because when I travel I leave my watch behind! In the early years of my travelling life, I used to leave my phone and work behind too :) Unfortunately with so many responsibilities on me now, I’m unable to do that anymore!


I got a taxi, the hotel was 45 minutes away from the airport and somehow it looked and felt like Tehran … Similar structures, look and feel

I reached the hotel, got ready, and was super excited to see the pyramids!!

Everything was perfect. I got an excellent taxi driver who was behaving like my grandpa, so concerned about me!

THE REALISATION

Fourth chapter of my life

Sometimes in life , you believe in destiny and you are hence convinced that everything is pre-planned for you… Here is what destiny planned for me in the next few months … A friend of mine introduced me to a designer, who ran a store in Pune. Since I had to work and gather some experience to complete my PhD project, I picked “Marketing and Business Ethics” as my topic, something everyone found funny initially, including myself.

The Third Chapter Of My Life

16th July , 2004
Mumbai , India

I Landed in Mumbai, India on a humid july afternoon. My life was under a state of flux, where everything felt new and different. The smell of the mud to the temperature outside , from the language spoken here to the city roads, from the people to their clothes… all a new experience!!!

The agent who got my admission done, had sent a car to pick me up from the Mumbai international airport and drop me off at a hotel in Pune… Till date, l clearly remember my first day in India. I was delighted to see monkeys on the express-way … I was amazed with the wide variety of colours in India, the driving rules … each and everything ! There was so much new to see, my eyes didn’t know where to look, I missed catching up with so many interesting things on my way to Pune!

The Second Chapter of My Life



The Second Chapter of My Life

Tehran, Iran

In my life, “education” was always the major reason behind me uprooting myself from one place and moving to another. It was the main motive behind me shifting to the capital city of Iran – Tehran ,for further studies. After getting admission in Tehran , all I had to do was just pack my bags and get going as we already had a house back there. That was the first time I stood in my room, looked around at everything and asked myself, “Maral, what is the most important thing here without which you won’t leave this house?!!!” Suddenly everything looked extremely vital to me! Everything from the things I did not even know I owned, to the things I used on a daily basis…! Funny, but true, that was the time I realized I have a fear of losing … losing my things, my loved ones and lot of other things!

Well, no problem! It’s all about self-analyzing yourself… So, what I ended up doing was taking everything that belonged to me, along with me to Tehran. I even took the sea shells and sand from the beach adjoining my house and ended up making myself a small home in the new city!

That is how I realized that “Happiness is a choice”. So I always manage to find a way to make myself happy!

As my tale continues, I settled in Tehran, was admitted to a nice college, met a bunch of fun-loving people and ultimately made them my ‘friends’. Everything was a little different here… It was a crowded city. Everything from the people to their habits, from the traffic to the tall buildings, it all spelled a distinctive lifestyle! Even the birds were different here!! My newly found companions helped make Tehran a second home for me, a home away from home! On the exterior my outlook towards life had changed, but on the interior, deep inside my heart I was adapting myself to the new environment. Those four years of my college life passed in the blink of an eye, as if my life were on a fast-forward mode! I was evolving as a human being, I was growing up now!

As time passed by, days into months, months into years, I understood that I wanted to see the world; I knew I was going to travel sometime soon, but never knew “India” was calling!

After that, I got busy in preparing and applying for admissions at universities in the UK… I was reading about everything, researching, asking friends, and taking plenty of opinions and advices! I needed a direction; I needed an answer to the eagerness building up inside me! It was one those days of my life, when my entire life changed without me even knowing it.

I was sitting in the library and reading a fat book on Rules and Regulations of students and visas for the UK, that’s when I clearly remember one of my faculty members walked in, looked at me with a faint smile playing on his lips, and then he asked me “What is the next plan? I said “Mmmmm….. The United Kingdom!” He looked at me and said “I do have an office in Belarus, I need to hire a new set of employees, you can move there, work and study (I wondered, God was playing a joke with me?!) Definitely NOT…” Then he suddenly said “Why not INDIA?!!!” Something started tickling me… All the way back home I was thinking about “INDIA”

I felt an affinity towards India. As though destiny knew I would like it there, and had already made fine plans for me to settle in India! I had a strong spiritual side, an inclination towards meditation and art of living concepts; adding to it all, my mind kept crawling back to the photos which were hanging in different parts of my house when I was a child. The photos were memories that my mother had captured when she visited India a decade ago (she had set out on a backpack journey to different parts of the Indian peninsula).

So I took the big step, called mom and told her that I think India is the place I want to go to for my further studies…! She said, “Maral, that’s a different world, go, give yourself time to think about it before your take the final decision. India is crowded; it’s different and not very easy compared the lifestyle here in Iran or in the UK!

After that conversation, I went to my room, thought about it in peace and got all my answers. I found my direction! Then nothing took time, something inside of me shouted out loud and clear – “INDIA is the place, INDIA is the place for me… I am going to INDIA!!!!!”

The following days passed by in getting everything sorted… Now that’s something you guys don’t know about me…if I want something to happen, I make sure it will happen…

My loving mother bought me a backpack, a sleeping bag and she told me “That you must have done very good things in your previous life and that you must be God’s special child as you have got the opportunity to go and live in India! India is our “Mother Land”; your life will take a different turn henceforth…”

Yes, I guess I was very special indeed

Extra Life: Year 4

Wizards of the Coast D&D - Thu, 08/18/2016 - 10:30
Type: NewsAuthor: Chris DupuisSubtitle: Play D&D for CharityBanner: Thumbnail (869x490): Text: 

We are pleased to announce that we’ll be participating in our fourth annual Extra Life livestreamed D&D event on September 16th! We’re joined by Magic: The Gathering as well as many other gamers as we celebrate the second annual Extra Life’s Tabletop Appreciation Weekend, playing games to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

WHAT IS OUR GOAL?

The D&D community has collectively raised over $200,000 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals over the past 3 Extra Life events. Wait a moment and let that sink in. The money we collect goes directly to the hospitals that are giving the kids in our community the care and support they need as they deal with some really scary illnesses. These heroes are fighting against scarier stuff than a beholder or a red dragon, and the least we can do is take up a shortsword and fight alongside them during this event! This year, we’re looking to raise an additional $50,000 for this great cause. Care to roll some dice with us?

WHEN CAN I WATCH?

The 24-hour marathon starts at 8am PST on Friday, September 16th, and will feature 6 in-house teams throughout the weekend. Each four-hour game will be livestreamed on the D&D Twitch Channel, and will focus on one of the giant races featured in the newest storyline, Storm King’s Thunder, using the 5th edition D&D rules set. The game will conclude at 8am PST on Saturday, September 17th.

Donors can contribute to Dungeon Masters and players alike to grant them benefits before and during the game. Not only can donors change gameplay, but they can also win D&D swag and exclusive content! Prizes may include rare miniatures, signed TRPG books, and D&D-themed swag. Below is a play calendar, a full list of participating members, and some of their Extra Life pages.

HOW CAN I SUPPORT YOUR TEAM?

It’s never too early to support the cause. You can visit the D&D team page to donate to any of our members. A few folks have already started raising money and we’re over 10% toward our goal!

You can also show your support by adding the D&D Twibbon to your Twitter or Facebook profile. Also, check out our Extra Life Media Kit.

HOW DO I PLAY?

Come join our Extra Life team and help us reach our goal! Join a D&D group, or try out a digital game- either newer titles such as Sword Coast Legends or Neverwinter (both of which are now on Xbox One and PS4), or classics like Baldur’s Gate II and Icewind Dale on PC. Alternatively, join some friends and play D&D board games like Dungeon!, Lords of Waterdeep, or Temple of Elemental Evil.

To participate, follow these steps:

  • Join Extra Life and set a personal goal.
  • When creating your Extra Life account, choose “Join a Team” and select “Dungeons & Dragons.”
  • Complete the remaining steps for creating an account.
  • Customize your page. For tips on customizing your page to help generate donations, download this toolkit.
  • Decide what you want to play and when you want to play it, then spread the word to potential donors!
CAN I ORGANIZE MY OWN EVENT?

Want to organize your own group? After you’ve joined the D&D team, take the following additional steps:

  • Reach out to other D&D players in your community (including online). Walk them through the sign-up steps and have them download the toolkit.
  • Customize your page and share it with your players. Encourage them to customize their own pages.
  • Find a place to play. Talk to your local game store, or find a space where no one’s going to mind if you’re gaming for long hours.
  • Create a schedule. Players don’t need to play for the entire 24 hours. Having a rotating cast of players keeps things exciting and organized.
  • Join the Extra Life Tabletop Event on Facebook to promote your event to others and share your success!
WHAT ARE THE REWARDS?

You’ll have to tune-in to the event on September 16th as we’ll have new items available for various donation amounts at the top of each hour.

Neverwinter: Storm King's Thunder

Wizards of the Coast D&D - Tue, 08/16/2016 - 14:00
Type: NewsAuthor: Thomas FossSubtitle: Available NowBanner: Thumbnail (869x490): Text: 

The famed ring of winter has been seized by the fierce frost giant Jarl Storvald, who is attempting to control its powers and use it to freeze the oceans, blanketing the world with snow and ice. Orcs, goblins, barbarians, trolls, and other monsters are gathering in the north, ready to pledge fealty to Jarl Storvald should he succeed. This of course is causing havoc in the northern settlements of Ten-Towns.

There are other reasons to venture into the cold. The frozen lands of the north, once the center of the ancient Ostorian Empire, is littered with relics from that long-forgotten time. Those Ostorian relics now lie in dangerous places. They are well worth the risk of acquiring, for they are infused with Voninblod, the ancient power of the giants of old.

This exciting module introduces a new campaign that has heroes adventuring in three new wilderness zones, Bryn Shander, Lonelywood and Cold Run, culminating in our most challenging dungeon yet, Fangbreaker Island.

In addition to the new content we’ve listening to you and have been working hard to make changes in Neverwinter, in particular this time around with Class Reviews for the Hunter Ranger, Scourge Warlock, and Guardian Fighter. We made quite a few changes before the Class Reviews went to the Preview server, and then had lots of back and forth discussions on the preview forums, making additional changes and bug fixes with the support and assistance of our awesome preview player base!

Thanks for reading, and I look forward to adventuring with you in the Storm King’s Thunder! I’ll be the one wearing a big scarf!

Each year at PAX West in Seattle, thousands of Dungeons & Dragons fans crowd into a music hall to watch people play D&D together. Some wait in line for hours because they know there’s something special about being in the Benaroya Hall when Chris Perkins runs the Acquisitions Incorporated gang through another zany adventure. The players feed on the audience and the atmosphere is electric – now D&D fans across the country will get to experience that electricity up-close-and-personal when D&D is broadcast live to movie theaters nationwide for the first time.

On September 4 at 6 p.m. PT, in partnership with Fathom Events, D&D aficionados across the country will be able to go to their local movie theater and sit with an audience full of fans to watch the premier D&D performance of the year, as hundreds of theaters across the U.S. will be showing “Dungeons & Dragons Live from PAX West.” Tickets can be purchased beginning today, Friday, August 5 by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices.

In addition to experiencing Acquisitions Incorporated in cinemas, each event attendee will receive an exclusive D&D adventure module. The 32-page booklet contains a four-hour adventure where the heroes work with Acquisitions Inc., and includes tons of Dungeon Master tips to help new players. The best part is that the adventure follows the upcoming D&D storyline and can be used as an introduction to the story of giants wreaking havoc across the land.
