We are very excited to announce a new actual play RPG stream called The Sight: Vaesen RPG based on Free League’s “Vaesen” rpg set in 19th century Scandanavia. The Sight will be a mini-series exclusive to Geekly’s Twitch channel at twitch.tv/geeklyinc and will be streamed on Saturdays at 8PM ET. The first episode will be aired on January 16, 2021. We have plans for video and audio archives which we will announce soon.
The game will be run by Michael DiMauro (hey that’s me!) who also acts as the dungeon master for the Greetings, Adventurers! podcast.
“The nisse, lindeworms, trolls, and fairies immediately captured my imagination as I read through the Vaesen source book,” says Michael. “but it was the focus on roleplaying and mystery over combat that made me want to create a new series. Also, there is base building??”
The new mini-series is hopefully just the first in an effort to expand Geekly’s twitch offerings, and will feature Veronica Escamilla-Brady as Mexican expat doctor Araceli Delfina Cruz, “The Geekly Council has been working on creating a repository for GeeklyInc creators to put their new crossover content. I hope that more of the creators will see this as an opportunity to make fun new content with GeeklyInc friends without feeling like it needs to turn into a 100+ episode podcast.” says Escamilla-Brady.
The cast will also include podcaster and GeeklyCon organizer Carly Shields, and Geekly community members Justin Connell and Bridgit Connell. In addition to being a cast member, Bridgit has also created the art for the series.
