Our Friday night stream focuses on Barky's Brigade, a group of adventurers united by their friendship of one Swo'dahs Fel. He pretty much is forgotten by the end of season one, but the group clings to each other!

Donations

Saving Throw utilizes a voluntary Pay-What-You-Will Donation system in conjunction with a loyalty program. Viewers are encouraged but under no obligation to donate to the channel. What sets Saving Throw apart is the ability to "purchase" certain abilities through the donation process or by turning in earned XP. Viewers can interact with the party through a variety of deus ex machina events that each cost a certain amount. For instance, for $1 or 120 XP a donor can heal a party member one hit point. For $10 they can resurrect a character. But they can also harm the party by granting a re-roll to the GM, or adding baddies to a fight that's all too easy.

Donation Rewards

The following is a complete list of the current donor reward choices:

  1. Cure Light Wounds Get [Character] back in the game by donating $1 per HP (only available OUT of combat).
  2. Here, Have a Re-roll! Donate $3, and [Player] receives a reroll token, which he or she can use to reroll any die roll -- even the GM's.
  3. You Can Do It! Inspire [Character]. By donating $3 [Player] gets 1 inspiration point. Maximum of 1 Inspiration point available per player per campaign. If the player you want to give an inspiration point to already has one, your point will be held until they expend their original point, at which point it would then be awarded to them.
  4. Back in the fight! Revive a dying character, and return him or her to 1 HP: $5
  5. KILL, CATS, KILL!!! Activate the cats in Arqe Barky's bag of cats to attack: $5/per cat.
  6. Fight's Too Easy Add more bad guys! $6 to add a fighter. Capped at 3 fighters MAX. Extra fighters disappear at conclusion of battle (if still alive). They're maaagic.
  7. Fight's Too Hard Donate $6 to add a fighting hero. Capped at 3 fighters MAX. Extra fighters disappear at conclusion of battle (if still alive). They're maaagic.
  8. LEEERRRRROOOOY JEEENNNNKINS! Donate $10 and player will get a token to add a bonus attack their turn. Available once per character per session. Donor must stipulate which player gets the bonus.
  9. Who's the New Guy? Create a NPC from scratch, either a FIGHT PC or PLOT PC, with the help of our GM Mason: $30
  10. A Mellifluous Voice, Indeed! Amy will write a bardic song for you, and perform it LIVE on the stream! $40
  11. LIVE, DAMN YOU Resurrect a character (entire party must be out of combat) for $50. The player must do something to honor the deity (donor) who bestowed this gift of life.

Viewer Loyalty

For every minute of time you spend watching any one of our streams, you earn 1 XP. You can spend these XP like a donation to buy in-game effects. You can also gamble your XP to potentially earn more (or lose it all). And you can participate in contests on the stream using your XP to help you win!

At any time you can see your current XP total by typing !XP (capital X and P only) in the chat window.

To gamble, type !gamble <amount> where <amount> is replaced with the total you'd like to gamble with. For example "!gamble 400" would put 400XP on the line. You can lose everything, double it, or triple it when you gamble.

Loyalty Rewards

  1. HealBot (!healbot) - 120 xp: Heal a party member 1hp per use.
  1. Suggest a reward (!suggest) - 140 xp: Suggest a reward for us to add to Revlo!
  1. Have a Re-Roll (!reroll) - 360 xp: Give the character of your choice the opportunity to re-roll (at their discretion).
  1. Aatuska's Warlock Power (!warlock) - 600 xp: As a servant of a Dark God, Aatuska (played by Virva) has some latent warlock powers. They behave like Wild Magic but instead of just rolling 1 to activate you can increase the range by one digit. So it would be a roll of 1 OR 20. Another donation would increase to 1, 2, OR 20. Then 1, 2, 19, 20. And so on. 11 is always left as a safety zone.
  1. Fight's Too Hard (!toohard) - 600 xp: Add a good guy to the fight to help out!
  1. Wild Magic (!udosurge) - 600 xp: Udo's Wild Magic triggers on a roll of 1 on a d20. You can give him a particularly bad day by increasing that pool by one digit with this reward. So a donation would increase it to 1 OR 20. Then 1, 2, 20. Then 1, 2, 19, 20... and so on. 11 is always left as a safety zone.
  1. Fight's Too Easy (!tooeasy) - 600 xp: Add a bad guy to the fight to shake things up.
  1. You Can Do It! (!inspiration) - 720 xp: Give an Inspiration point to the character of your choice! Behaves just like it does in the PHB.
  1. LEROY JENKINS!! (!leroy) - 1200 xp: Give a player a bonus attack during combat.
  1. NPC Creation (!NPCMe) - 1800 xp: Become an NPC in the game. We'll work with you to name this NPC and create your backstory. You'll be featured in the wiki and of course during the game. You can choose to be a FIGHT PC, who will join the party at times to do battle (either for or against them), or a PLOT PC, who will be a guide and deliver crucial information or serve as a mentor or enemy.
  1. Chest of Liquor (!booze) - 1800 xp: You can buy a drink for one player!
  1. Bardic Song (!bardicsong) - 2400 xp: Amy will write and perform a Bardic Song about your topic of choice (keep it clean! We will edit if need be).
  1. NPCme-PLUS (!NPCPLUS) - 3700 xp: Similar to NPCme, we'll add an NPC named by you with a crafted backstory. However you will be integral to the plot of the campaign - becoming a bad guy, good guy, or other main plot character.
