I...I don't really know what Aquisitions Inc. is...

Is the only D&D campaign-based media that you watch RollPlay?

(banned) #26

Mainly yes. Rollplay or it's derivatives.

Currently Rollplay, Roll20, and working into Eric Vulgaris' stuff.

After that going to go through Missclicks, then through Koibus' stuff.

I don't know what Acquisitions Inc. is @boostgeek. It's a DnD thing....I think? But I don't know any more than that.

People watch it at Pax or something, I think.

I'm not joking or trying to trick you or anyone.

I don't even know who this woman is really (even after explanation), nor why she's particularly important or famous in terms of this general subset of fandom we have carved out here.

That doesn't stop her from being important, merely that I don't know why or in what real capacity.

No worried, not giving you any shade for not knowing what Acquisitions.Inc. is or who Morgan Webb is. Its worth checking out a couple of the Acquisitions Incorporated games on YouTube when you get the time, its what inspired JP to stream playing DnD with the original cast

Acq. Inc. is the now ten year long game of the Penny Arcade guys, Jerry Holkins (this name you might know from Dogs in the vineyard RollPlay) and Mike Krahulik, with their friend Scott Kurtz and various others over the years. Recently that fourth has been Patrick Rothfuss and he's hilarious.

Mainly it is played at PAX, but there's been podcasts, a youtube series and an Amazon holiday special.

DM is Chris Perkins, not exactly an unimportant name for D&D.

All you need to know about Morgan Webb has been mentioned, she's known in nerd cycles that watched the programms she was running/part of. Outside of the USA and that particular audience she's basically generating a "who?"

(VyRe40) #31

Yeah, as others have said, Acquisitions, Inc. is JP's original influence for starting Rollplay. He saw it years ago and it sparked his interest in D&D (since his first experience with his brother never hooked him), him and Geoff decided to put on a show of it, then they put out the call for a DM and the rest is history. He mentions it in the 4 Years Later panel they did at Pax South recently, iirc.

Reminder this is today. Let's all try and support this by giving him high viewership so he can get guests like this in the future. Leave the stream on in the background muted if you can't actively watch. Less than two more hours to go!
