A role-playing tribute to Betty White will broadcast on Twitch
A cast of skilled tabletop role-players will commemorate the late Betty White next week the very best method they understand how — with a Golden Girls-themed real play session livestreamed on Twitch. Contributions got throughout the video game will benefit the American Society for the Avoidance of Ruthlessness to Animals (ASPCA), among White’s preferred charitable companies.
White passed away on Dec. 31, simply a couple of weeks shy of her 100th birthday. The pioneering American star increased to prominence in early radio and tv after The second world war, ultimately discovering a house amongst the cast of The Mary Tyler Moore Program. Nevertheless, her name will constantly be associated with her most well-known function as Rose Nylund, among The Golden Girls. The program — which also starred Bea Arthur, Estelle Getty, and Rue McClanahan — premiered in 1985 and remains heavily syndicated (and on Hulu) to this day.
The format for this particular actual play will be a game called Lewd Grannies, a tabletop function-playing game (TTRPG) written by Joel Salda. Players take on the role of a raunchy grandmother trying to feed a specific vice at a wedding — including drugs and alcohol, the need to create emotional drama, or simply a bad case of kleptomania. Serving as game master will be Bee Zelda, a TTRPG content creator best known for their work on The Broadswords. Sitting down to play will be Gina DeVivo, Mo Nuncio, Omar Najam, and Saige Ryan.
The real play will be transmitted live on Pixel Circus’ channel beginning Monday, Jan. 17 at 6 p.m. PST.
