        Is the countdown timer just wrong on the twitch channel? It says next stream is in 20 hours, but the description above says they stream the game in an hour and a half. Was there a cancellation or postponement that isn't noted?

              I will say: *TREMENDOUS* missed opportunity.
              The title card should have been:
              "Patrick Rothfuss and friends"
              "Patrick Rothfuss"

                I once watched a game like this where observers could pay to help/hinder the players. Eventually each player and the GM had like 100 re-rolls. It became quickly apparent the whole thing had gone overboard and people just kept re-rolling, meaning nobody ever failed so there was very little excitement, plus it turned to such a slog that slowed the game down. it was clear neither the GM nor players were having fun that game.

                That was just a small local convention, but I hope this is done much better!

                    Mr. Rothfuss was the reason i watched a little show called Acq inc. Then he appeared on another little show called Critical Role. The man is the Genesis of my D&D playing.

                      Funny - same here! I decided I wanted to play when I saw him DM in Acquisitions Inc. That was many play sessions ago :)

                    Do I have to donate at the event live to "mess" with the team? Or can I donate now and reserve my devilish place?

                    I know its not that big of a deal, but it bothers me that the text gets pixelated when its heading towards the screen.
