Total Party Chill is an Actual Play D&D studio show of longtime friends with diverse backgrounds & identities. We also run live viewer participant D&D Trivia shows, and highlight indie games we enjoy.
We run a radically new style of streaming D&D actual play that leverages collaboration between the show and the viewer. Total Party Chill focuses on bringing the viewers to the table with immersive out of stream world building, and live chat collaboration during live shows. Known for having a diverse cast and playful attitudes, TPC offers humorous adventures and touches of drama and endearment.
How we started…
The 8 of us have been playing weekly games together for the past 4 years. Occasionally inviting others to join us for our weekly game nights. in 2018 we invited our friend who worked for Twitch, and as the night came to an end, he prompted us to start streaming our adventures on Twitch.
With limited knowledge of the technical requirements for streaming and no professional backgrounds in the industry, we set out to make a show we felt would resonate with viewers .
Total Party Chill was born soon after in a group text thread between us. The following weeks involved road mapping out goals to get us to episode 1. Learning the ins and outs of audio/video, creating graphics, and rolling out our branding and presence, we finally were able to launch.
Now with over 8000 followers, we have built an amazing community for our viewers and ourselves. We have been lucky enough to grow Total Party Chill in a way that allows us to create collaborative stories and create an engagement model that strives to bring viewers to the table with us.
