Panels

Dungeons & Dragons & Cooking!

Saturday, October 10th @ 12:25 PM ET

The authors of the new official D&D cookbook, Heroes' Feast, share how they developed recipes and culinary backstory from the different realms of the fantasy RPG. Join Michael Witwer, Kyle Newman, and Jon Peterson as they talk about their process and share some of the dishes featured in the new book.

Oxventure in Space! The Return of the Thing

Saturday, October 10th @ 12:40 PM ET

The heroes of chaotic Dungeons & Dragons crew The Oxventurers Guild find themselves once again transported from the fantasy realm of D&D into the sci-fi setting of tabletop RPG Lasers & Feelings. Hop aboard the interstellar scout ship Raptor for this genre-swapping spin-off, with more lasers and feelings than ever before.

Oxventure is a UK-based D&D group formed of Andy Farrant, Ellen Rose, Jane Douglas, Luke Westaway and Mike Channell, seeking adventure and atonement under the auspices of dungeon master Johnny ‘Literally Everyone in the World’ Chiodini. Born in 2017 as a spin-off of YouTube gaming channels Outside Xbox and Outside Xtra, Oxventure took on a destructive life of its own for which Johnny, video boss of tabletop gaming site Dicebreaker, will surely be held responsible.

Also, you can join the cast of D&D crew Oxventure for a Q&A panel at Metaverse! The folks from YouTube channels Outside Xbox and Outside Xtra, along with Dicebreaker's Johnny Chiodini, will be answering your questions live in this special online panel with hardly any derailing whatsoever. Get your Q&A tickets here!

Sunday, October 11th @ 4:00 PM ET

The Adventure Zone's Clint, Justin, Travis and Griffin McElroy pass along tips and tricks on their family's favorite game: Dungeons & Dragons. They have lots of secrets they’re ready to share! Join them to improve your RPG skills a little, and probably laugh a lot. If you’re unable to attend the workshop, it will be available for replay until Saturday 10/17 at 12 AM EST. Tickets must be purchased before Monday 10/12 @ 11:59 PM EST to access panel replay.
