The Stream of Many Eyes #SoMEDnD was a huge undertaking, but as I am settling back in @wizards_dnd HQ, I’m incredibly pleased w/ how well it blended so many facets of #DnD fandom together to celebrate this crazy hobby & introduce the new Waterdeep storylines. 1/62 (really)
#SoMEDND was only accomplished through massive efforts from the #DnD community. I’ve tried to highlight everyone I could over the weekend, but I’d love to give more shout-outs to all the folks who made this event a success! Strap in, this is going to be a long thread… 2/62
Mr. @PelhamGreene did everything I asked & more than I’ll ever know to making #SoMEDND a success. Working with cosplayers, putting the social schedule together, and keeping me sane as a constant sounding board was all very much appreciated. Thanks so much Pelham! 3/62
@PelhamGreene Jenn Erb @Jenn_Erb & Lauren Greenberg @The_LaurenG from @tripleclix knocked #SoMEDND into high gear by organizing the logistics behind the scenes, ordering food & water, hiring all the crews & making sure everyone had what they needed. Thanks Jenn & Lauren! 4/62
@PelhamGreene @jenn_erb @The_LaurenG @tripleclix Aron Beroud ( designed the sets of Waterdeep & the Field of Triumph to #DnD’s exacting standards. He & his assistant/daughter Sofia Beroud were working right up until the cameras went live to make sure it looked perfect & it did! Thanks Aron & Sofia! 5/62
Robert Watts @Rwts007 took on the director whisperer/AD role for #SoMEDnD. His expertise & demeanor made it possible for us to adapt to shifting needs & awesome opportunities. Plus, I’ll never forget his quiet coyote at 7:55pm on Sunday night. Still giggling. Thanks Robert! 6/62
Dirk Walllace @dirk_w jumped into live directing #SoMEDnD & did so with vigor. I loved his constant belief we were making something special & because of his hard work – we did. I'm sorry I couldn't find a better pic of you but that's the curse of BTS work. Thanks Dirk! 7/62
Elisa Teague @geekypinup created the wonderful puzzles enjoyed all weekend long by the players. It’s no simple feat for puzzles to be easy enough to solve in an hour but also complex enough to confound right up until the last moment. Her costumes were sublime too! Thanks Elisa! 8
@GeekyPinup Ivan Van Norman @hydra_lord was an inspiration not only in DMing the off-the-table sessions & writing the overall structure of the #SoMEDnD story, but in offering producing expertise whenever I needed it. Thanks Ivan for everything! 9/62
@GeekyPinup @Hydra_Lord To the entire off-the-table cast – you took our crazy idea & had the courage to embody it in front of a live camera. Thank you @katewelchhhh @BDaveWalters @satinephoenix @sherlock_hulmes for believing in @hydra_lord & solving @geekypinups’s puzzles just in the nick of time. 10/62
Thank you @BDaveWalters for being as awesome in person even more you are on the streams. I’m looking forward to working with you in the future on so many secret projects! I just love this photo of you by @tyliner... 11/62
Emmett Furey @emmettfurey put so much character & effort into the #nostoneunturned ARG w/ tons of puzzles designed by @geekypinup to create a stunning narrative that unfolded just in time for #SoMEDnD to begin. Thanks Emmett & Elisa! 12/62
What can I say about Dustin Fletcher @flashfletch? He basically reached out on this here website to see if we needed him for #SoMEDnD & did we ever!!! He worked his ass/voice off all weekend as the costumed extras coordinator. Dustin, a thousand thank yous! 13/62
A special thank you to @annaprosser for hosting #SoMEDnD w/ overflowing grace & talent. She rolled w/ everything I threw at her at the last minute & made it look effortless. Thanks Anna! Next year let’s make that musical happen! 14/62
@AnnaProsser I’m thankful for the best spokespeople a brand could have in @mikemearls, @jeremyecrawford, @katewelchhh & @chrisperkinsDnD. I love that I could throw you all into an hour-long conversation about Waterdeep: Dragon Heist & #DnD & witness you easily rock the house. Thank you! 15/62
Thanks to the best boss ever, Liz Schuh, for supporting everything about this event while always checking in to make sure I was OK, not only at #SoMEDnD but in the months leading up to it. You are a rock star, Liz! Thank you! 16/62
It’s not often you have someone in a leadership position who is excited to take risks. @nathanbstewart listened to all of our ideas for #SoMEDnD & pushed us to do even more – until he smartly recognized it was time to laser focus on what we could deliver. Thanks Nathan! 17/62
Thank you to @JeremyECrawford for believing we could pull off building the Waterdeep set in time, for DMing such awesome sessions behind the scenes, & helping #DnD grow in so many ways. Thank you, Jeremy! 18/62
I asked @Onnatryx if he wanted to be Mirt the Moneylender 10 months ago & he immediately said, “Hell yes!” in a Scottish brogue. Thanks Chris Lindsay for being such an enthusiastic advocate for the entire #DnD & @DnD_AdvLeague communities! (Nice photobomb @TheEdVerse) 19/62
I just want to make sure everyone knew how much @katewelchhhh rocked it at #SoMEDnD. Seriously, I think she was on camera more than any single person & she did it w/ aplomb. Thank you for growing up to be a full on #wizard. You are awesome & I'm thankful to work beside you! 20/62
The accuracy of the Waterdeep set & the story was all ensured by @sernett who sat in countless meetings w/ production, @geekypinup, @hydra_lord & @emmettfurey. Thank you Matt Sernett for loremastering #SoMEDnD! 21/62
The graphic design of #DnD is nothing short of spectacular & all that rests on the shoulders of Emi Tanji @cccakesss. I was psyched she could experience #SoMEDnD to see some of her designs in action & meet @WillingBlam! Thanks Emi! 22/62
All of the love to @satinephoenix for being so gracious while in costume ALL #SoMEDnD. You were an absolute joy & your support was undying. You & the @mazearcana Inkwell Society crew looked amazing! Thanks Satine! 23/62
Not many know Dave Gershman from the #DnD team but he is a constant fountain of support for the art team & #SoMEDnD was no different. Thanks Dave for putting together all those swag bags! And thanks @pelhamgreene for pulling your focus… :) 24/62
All of the #DnD partners who occupied spaces in Waterdeep were downright delightful. I want to thank @beamdoginc for sending @Trentoster as Minsc, @daigledopple as Rassad, @Mark_Meer as Alvaeus Malcanter (photo coming later) & @WriteLeeWrite as Biff. You guys rocked! Thanks! 25
The debut of @BeadleAndGrimm’s Pandemonium Warehouse was exciting to behold! Thanks to @MatthewLillard & crew for working up to the last second on the announcement. #DnD fans will get something special w/ the Platinum Edition of Waterdeep: Dragon Heist. 26
Special thanks to @AbrahamBenrubi for just being at #SoMEDnD to have fun & support the community & @BeadleAndGrimm. Abe, I am so thankful you are a part of #DnD. Now to plan that tall guys group for next year ... 27/62
Seeing the joy on Eric Jordan @ericremyjordan’s face at the @idlechampions space was overwhelming. Thank you to Eric, @CliveGorman & @dylanwilks for bringing Scott Kurtz @pvponline & Holly Conrad @HollyConrad to meet #DnD fans. That was awesome & I can't wait for more! 28/62
I loved meeting @dean_bigbee in the @Roll20app Scrollery & reconnecting w/ @dirtbagboyfren & @Cavni. The design of the Scrollery was awesome & your costumes knocked it into the stratosphere. Thanks Alex, Soraya & Dean! 29/62
The folks at @TenSpeedPress weren’t sure about this whole #DnD thing but they are now! Thanks to @docetist @SamWitwer @mikewitwer @KyleNewmanDP for creating the amazing #DnDArtandArcana book & showing it off so well at #SoMEDnD! 30/62
Everyone at @PlayNeverwinter is a powerhouse, but I wanted to thank Jayson Gegner @geg, Julia Fredrickson @trianakvetch, Thomas Foss @SkullnCrown, Chantelle Tatum & Matt Powers for buying in to this idea of #SoMEDnD from the get-go. You are all awesome! 31/62
@DnDBeyond went above & beyond to make #SoMEDnD awesome. From the Thursday night mixer by @LeahKoons, to the videos & editorial by @toddkenreck & @jamesjhaeck, to the tablets provided & tool created by @badeyeadam & the team. Thank you for being a part of this! 32/62
Thanks to @HanCholoDesigns for making a replica of Halaster’s ring. Did everyone see where Google MacGuffin got off to??? Thanks Brandon! 33/62
