PAX East 2014

PAX East is this weekend and you won’t want to miss the live Acquisitions Incorporated D&D game! Remember that all live game attendees receive our first ever D&D pinny arcade pin, while supplies last. If you’re not able to make it to PAX East, you can still keep up with the adventure by watching it on the PAX twitch stream.

You can find out more at the official PAX East site.


D&D Live Game

As announced on the PAX East website:

When last we left our heroes, they had defeated one of the most terrible foes the Realms had ever seen, and carved out a little space in the city of Waterdeep that they could call their own. Now a new opportunity… err… adventure beckons! Word has reached the Acquisitions Incorporated headquarters of some dragon eggs that are in great peril. Join "DM to the Stars" Chris Perkins, Gabe (Mike Krahulik), Tycho (Jerry Holkins), Scott Kurtz and a special guest star (Morgan Webb) as they guide Jim Darkmagic, Binwin Bronzebottom, Omin Dran and the newest intern through an unscripted Dungeons & Dragons adventure before a live audience.

Seminars

Dungeons & Dragons Preview: Tyranny of Dragons featuring Chris Perkins

Friday 4/11, 1 pm – 2 pm (Eastern Time) Dragonfly Theatre

Some have a pride of lions. Others have a murder of crows. We've got a Tyranny of Dragons. Join "DM to the Stars" Chris Perkins as he weaves a tale of cultists, evil dragons, and the return of their dark queen – Tiamat. Be one of the first to learn of the story and see art for the Tyranny of Dragons campaign and the new edition of Dungeons & Dragons!

Dungeons & Dragons R&D Presents: The Art of the Dungeon Master

Saturday 4/12, 5 pm – 6 pm (Eastern Time) Condor Theatre

Dungeon Mastering, like wine tasting and equestrianism, is a fine art. It takes a variety of skills – story-weaver, actor, lawyer, arbitrator – to sit behind the screen with confidence, style and aplomb. But fear not. These skills can be learned and our expert Dungeon Masters plucked straight from the D&D R&D department will be on hand to answer your questions. Need tips for DMing with D&D Next rules? Have some questions about weaving the Tyranny of Dragons story into your game? Want help building encounters and campaigns? A Q&A session will follow the panel discussion. All levels of Dungeon Masters welcome.

Panelists include: Chris Perkins (Senior Worldbuilding Designer D&D, Wizards of the Coast), Mike Mearls (Senior Manager D&D R&D, Wizards of the Coast), Jeremy Crawford (Lead Developer and Editor for D&D, Wizards of the Coast)
