Once Upon a Time... Roll Seekers Began
Updated: Oct 22, 2020
During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Dustin Ritchea, Allison Ritchea, Zachary Gipson, Jami Spiegel, Calvin Carden, and Eli Carden met to discuss what it would take to turn their bi-weekly tabletop role-playing game into a live stream. Inspired by the gaming community and driven by a passion for storytelling, the group began to work toward a common goal—bringing the Roll Seekers game live to Twitch.
Six month laters, after countless hours of researching, testing, and collaboration, the Roll Seekers are ready for their first stream out of the Ritchea's basement (dungeon in-progress).
"It's been a tireless journey, but I couldn't be more proud of the show we're going to put on," said Dustin Ritchea, the Lore Master and CEO of Nabell Media, the parent company for Roll Seekers. "We've all come together to do something we hope will inspire others who appreciate epic tales with a flare for the theatrical."
Roll Seekers is made up of only six members, who have done everything from lighting design to social media marketing. Through reaching out to colleagues, friends, and family, and by searching the web, the Roll Seekers learned social media marketing, web design, audio production, improvisation, and finally how to stream live.
"We're thrilled with the collaboration we've been able to accomplish," said Zachary Gipson, who plays Lexi Mox in the Trevian Forest Campaign, "we're already collaborating with artists, and we can't wait to bring other collaborators into the fold."
"We've reached out to some of our favorite companies," continued Jami Spiegel, who plays Clara in the Trevian Forest Campaign, "and they have been more than happy to let us use their products in our show. We've gotten permission from Dwarven Forge, Reapers Miniatures, Hero Forge, and even Webkinz, to name a few, which really goes to show you that there's a lot of love in the gaming community."
The Roll Seekers go live for the first time on November 7, 2020 at 7 pm @RollSeekers on Twitch. They will stream the first and third Saturday of every month.
