Following the game, the Chaldea writing staff will adapt the adventure into a short script that will be performed and filmed live by a new cast of actors on twitch the following week. After the Actors Studio, the Chaldea post-production team will edit actor performances together with game play art, combined with DM narration, and music score to produce a unique video experience released to the world during an Actoroke Viewing Party the next week.
In and out in three-weeks—adventure complete. Now rinse and repeat five more times for a thrilling six-part adventure series.
