Dark Sun

From Saving Throw Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Airing every Saturday starting at 12:30pm PDT Dark Sun uses the Dungeon World game system to bring players into the post-apocalyptic world of Athas. GM'd by Shawn Graham the game uses the Dark Sun campaign setting and borrows heavily from 2nd and 4th edition D&D texts.

Stream Notes

Chat Commands

At any time during the stream, viewers can catch up on the action and find out who's playing who by typing certain commands into the chat window.

!darksun - this command gives an up to the minute recounting of where the party is and their current mission.

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 550 XP a donor can heal a party member one sanity point. 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 available to you during a session of Dark Sun, with cash and XP amounts listed for each along with links to redeem: http://bit.ly/DarkSun_RewardsList

A unique aspect of this game is the concept of Chat armies. Every viewer has access to 5 "soldiers". These soldiers can be pledged to either the Heroes (the players around the table), or the Sorcerer Kings (either the GM or one of our Patreon backers as described below). This bolsters armies which can then be used to conquer cities.

Patreon backers of $10+/month can also instill bonds between characters. A list of the bonds that can be chosen is here: http://bit.ly/DarkSun_Bonds-List

And lastly, as mentioned above, Patreon backers of $25+ can become Sorcerer Kings in-game. They can choose a name, a city, and an army type. They command 25 soldiers at the start, and their army can be bolstered through chat donations.

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.
