Better late than never!
I started recording my ranked League of Legends placement matches a few months ago so that people could see what the process was like. I ended up using Open Broadcasting Software(OBS) to do it including a webcam toward the end. I got some requests for more videos so I did a handful more as well. Since OBS is a streaming software, it got me interested in the process of game streaming on twitch.tv.
It started off as a joke but we started using Twitch to live stream our weekly Pathfinder RPG sessions, which has turned out to be a lot of fun.
In an effort to learn by doing, I’ve started to stream more things, just to see what it’s like.
So here’s my current streaming schedule. We’ll see how it goes. You can check out the channel on twitch here. All times are US Central.
- Mondays starting at 7-8PM: Gnome Game Live. Playing Pathfinder “pencil and paper” RPG, the Rise of the Runelords campaign
- Fridays @7PM: Mass Effect. My wife and I are playing through the Mass Effect games again as a renegade character. We might switch it up. The Walking Dead Season 2 did just come out.
- Saturday and/or Sunday @9AM: League of Legends ranked games. I’m trying to get back into ranked and weekend mornings are the best time for me.
Come check one or more of them out!
Whereas many people stay close with their college friends, I’ve stayed close with my high school friends. This may be due to the fact that many of us didn’t go the traditional 4 year college route, but the people I played D&D with in high school and I still talk today, even if I’m on the other side of the country from them.
A couple of years ago, we decided to try to use all of the fancy technology we have access to now to try me remoting in for role playing again. It failed miserably, but not because of the setup. Recently, a smaller group of friends and I have started a Pathfinder game with me joining via webcam. Are we doomed to the same fate?
