Learn to live stream like Maze Arcana

As Twitch influencers and Wizards of the Coast partners, Maze Arcana co-creators Satine Phoenix and Ruty Rutenberg have shared their passion for tabletop roleplaying games, Game Master and live streaming expertise to foster an ardent following. Now, they bring that enthusiasm and excitement to the Dungeons & Dragons Twitch channel twice weekly with Fury’s Reach where they lead two groups of D&D players through amazing adventures previewing the exciting upcoming Tomb of Annihilation storyline.

“Live streaming is a way for people to connect with the community. You can try your ideas, or other’s ideas out and see how people like it, maybe inspire others to try something the way you do it. We show you how to live stream to take the complication away so you can focus on creating an amazing story for both your players and the community to engage with.” – Satine Phoenix

This live play fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons game set in Eberron features Nerdarchist Dave, Dungeon Life’s Todd Kenreck and Dawnforgedcast’s Andrew Armstrong alongside Geek & Sundry’s “Sagas of Sundry: Dread” stars Satine Phoenix, Amy Dallen and Amy Vorpahl.

Registration for the seminar is here.

“We really just want to see the profile and love for Tabletop RPG’s continue to grow and if we can be a help to those who are curious about streaming, and get them some experience too, we are elated to help…You can expect to spend months just figuring out technical things before gaining any traction and even that can still feel underwhelming against the amount of obstacles you encounter if you don’t know they’re there.” – Ruty Rutenberg

Rutenberg and Phoenix will discuss their own journey to becoming Twitch partners and sponsored D&D content creators to illustrate and illuminate their successes, stumbling blocks and how their self-funded undertaking influenced equipment choices along the way. Meanwhile the Blackmagic Design crew will walk attendees through the live show’s setup with valuable how-to tips and the first part of their awesome giveaways.
