Role playing games are hard. Playing any RPG requires several important things:
I think there are a large number of people who are interested in RPGs, but there is no viewer-friendly place for them to cultivate that curiosity. Some people may just be casually wondering how RPGs work. Some might actually play the game, if they could just figure out how. Some of them might have played at one time, but are rusty. Some of them might play regularly and just want to watch someone else play for a change.
That’s why Saving Throw exists. The idea is to create a visually interesting, viewer-friendly show that will educate the casual fan, and (hopefully) entertain the hardened grognard. Learning how to play an RPG is intimidating, and complicating that is the fact that RPG players can be intimidating. What we at Saving Throw are saying is, “Hey, don’t be afraid! This is fun!”
On top of that, we’re not just a “teaching” show. In addition to our tutorial episodes we’ll be showing actual gameplay from our weekly sessions, which should be as entertaining as they are informative.
It’s a tall order, sure, but I think we’re up to the task. This Kickstarter campaign will help us immensely, and will allow us to generate the content that we want to bring you. Click this link right here. Thanks for your support.
