We gave you a few details last week about our new upcoming twitch series, the interactive, live comedy RPG/improv mashup that will be Masters of the Metaverse. And now we want to give you ALL THE DETAILS.
WHAT? MASTERS OF THE METAVERSE: New Interactive, livestream RPG
2-episode miniseries exclusive to Patreon Backers & ZOE Supporters… See it first before we release it into the wild for regular weekly shows!
WHEN? Saturday February 18 & 25, 3-5:30pm PST
WHAT NEXT? You tell us. Once the regular kicks into gear on March 4, backers will be able to shape the show’s characters, background, and powers through the ZOE Patreon site — you’ll even make crucial story choices! We’ll post ideas during the week, then let you vote on the direction we take.
WHAT ABOUT THE WORLD?
Set in the modern day, MOTM tells the story of people compelled and coerced to bend reality via metapods: dimension-shifting portals that allow the occupants to inhabit avatars far from their own world. It’s Quantum Leap meets Sliders, melded with RPGs, and improvised live with viewer suggestions.
WHAT ABOUT THE RULES? Mechanically, MOTM is a TriStat dX-based RPG. The party draws simultaneously from two character sheets: their Player identity in “the real world” and their Avatar identity in “the avatar world.” Buffs and trolls from the show’s Chat stream determine the party’s access to their powers, and various story decisions will also come from Chat, with special weekly abilities and buffs granted exclusively to Patreon supporters.
