When last we left our group, they'd just finished watching an epic fight between a Sympathetic Ooze and a Giant Lizard. More than half the party's fallen asleep as a result of the lizard's toxic mold spores. Watch live as we unfold more secrets and develop Precious Dark 'in public'!
Join us for our third running of the random dungeon tournament, this time as a miniature elimination bracket, provided we can get enough players to fill out four teams (if we can't, we'll just do a head-to-head)!
Sign up to play in the tournament at the Google+ event. Please keep in mind, if we get enough sign-ups and the tournament becomes an elimination bracket, you'll need to be available for the first dungeon at 1PM Pacific / 4PM Eastern, and if you win, you'll need to be around for the second dungeon at 6PM Pacific / 9PM Eastern. Each run is three hours.
Join us for two days of gaming on February 21st and February 22nd! Submit a game to run, or sign up to play in a game. All you need is a computer, mic, camera, and internet connection.

Freestyle play-by-play forum role-plays, also know as play-by-post, is a type of role playing that is essentially a GMless story game done through posts rather than talking. However, some people would cry out in anger and confusion that this is not a game, this is not role playing. It’s also dominated by women. Let’s take a closer look at these issues. Well, oddly enough, forum role-plays are dominated majorly by women. How is that? Why is that?
This week brings us some amazing free content, as well as some Patreon items: The Golden Cobra is a contest for freeform games, and they've put out an anthology of last year's entries. It's a treasure trove over 40 freeform games, so play and enjoy!
Panels are a staple of both online and irl conventions, and boy do us gamers like to talk about our hobby. One of the key parts of a successful panel is a great moderator, and I polled the G+ gaming community to find out who the best ones were. Lowell Francis, Andrea G, Rich Rogers,Stacy Dellorfano, and John Stavropoulos were all kind enough to share their techniques on running a successful panel.
