Manticore Games have partnered with Wizards of the Coast to bring Dungeons & Dragons to Core. To encourage tabletop gamers to use Core and create campaigns online, Manticore has a $20,000 prize fund and a panel of D&D celebrities lined up to play some of the user-created content for PAX Online.
The deadline for that competition is September 6th, and you can find out more about it at the Core Games site.
The Core D&D games played by the panel will be made free on the Core platform for everyone else via a special D&D hub world.
Who are the Panel of Legends?
- Deborah Ann Woll (Relics & Rarities, True Blood, Daredevil)
- Jerry Holkins (Acquisitions Incorporated, Penny Arcade)
- Reggie Watts (The Late, Late Show with James Cordon, Comedy Bang! Bang!)
- Sam Riegel (Critical Role)
- Todd Kenreck – Moderator (D&D Beyond)
- WWE ® Superstar Xavier Woods ® (WWE, UpUpDownDown)
Manticore Games are also expected to bring additional special guests.
When does this happen?
PAX Online lasts more than a week. The Panel of Legends, though, is September 15th from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. PDT.
