Steven Lumpkin is doing a survey about streamed RPGs

Survey here.

The current results of the survey are here.

Some really interesting stuff;

  • Most people watch 1-2 streamed or podcast rpg shows weekly.
  • Most people are either engaged & like community participation or don’t engage at all, with very few disliking it.
  • Most watch streamed RPG content all in one sitting, and the plurality prefer 2-4 hrs worth of content but the numbers are very close. In general folks are looking for 1-4 hrs of content.
  • The single highest rated things that get people interested and keep watching rpg shows are good audio, the players, and the characters.
  • The vast majority (77% as of right now!) prefer a mix of mechanics crunch and free-form roleplay.
  • The number one reason other than being unable to keep up with viewing for people to stop watching is player (not character!) in-fighting.
  • People are looking for both non-D&D games, and more diverse play groups.

I hope this is a precursor to Steven doing another show, I SORELY miss him on RollPlay, and especially the West Marches!!
His stuff on Roll4It is good (sky pirates), but not quite the same…

You should check out Jesse Cox’s YouTube…

And what are we looking for on Jesse Cox’s youtube? Do you have a video name?

I don’t think it’s a secret.
