For Release: 4/16/2019

Salt Lake City, UT 

A group of successful science fiction, fantasy, and gaming writers are preparing to launch a new universe together—in a format they’ve never tried before! TypeCast RPG will be an ongoing role-playing game that streams live on Twitch every Tuesday night from 7-10MST. 

The members of TypeCast RPG will adventure in a world they’ve collaboratively created named Vaeron. Throughout the sessions, the dungeon master and five game players will make use of the Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition rule system to take their characters through a dark and heroic world in which cities have been built on the backs of slumbering eldritch monsters, stone-age dangers lurk in the lands below, and sky-ships plunder both land and air! 

The cast includes: 

  • Dan Wells will serve as the Dungeon Master for the group.

    • Notable Works: I am Not a Serial Killer, the Partials series, the Writing Excuses podcast. TwitterFacebookWebsite

  • Charlie N. Holmberg will be playing Fleeda, a Stone Age human druid with complicated family problems.

  • Mari Murdock is Grisk, a half-orc rogue torn between profit and faith, and willing to switch allegiances for the right reward.

    • Notable Works: Legend of the Five Rings Contributor, RPG Writing, Whispers of Shadow and Steel. TwitterFacebookWebsite

  • Brian McClellan is Krustov, the necromancer cleric and atheist (yes, it’s that confusing).

    • Notable Works: The Powder Mage Trilogy, Gods of Blood and Powder, Uncanny Collateral. TwitterFacebookWebsite

  • And a cast of rotating guests!

After the livestream wraps up, video viewing will be available on YouTube, as well as a podcast intended to launch on Wednesday afternoons. Various bonus content such as interviews, industry discussions for both fiction writing and gaming, and guest stars will be part of the live stream and other formats!

The authors combine for a direct social media reach of over one hundred thousand, with three million books sold in more than thirty languages. They’ve hit the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Amazon Bestseller lists. Their awards include a Hugo, a Gemmell, an SSYRA, multiple Parsecs, Whitneys, and Stabbys, as well as finalists in the RITA and Goodreads Choice Awards. They have worked on major Hollywood IPs, have multiple film options as well as a very successful podcast with sixty thousand listeners, and even an award-winning movie on Netflix. 

TypeCast RPG begins April 23rd, 2019. You can find them on Twitch, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Patreon, Youtube, and their website. For weekly updates about the show, join their mailing list. They are actively looking for sponsors. For more information, email dm@typecastrpg.com.
