Dungeons & Dragons Improv-active
The hilarious cast of the D’n’DUI podcast is going to be doing a live podcast show, and want IndyPopConians to participate. Think Who’s Line Is It Anyway, if it were run by Chris Hardwick.

The members of D’n’DUI are going to be bringing their characters to life in a fast-paced, free for all session of D&D and are going to use the audience to help write and tell the story. Let’s say Audience Member Dave volunteers, he is now transformed into Golbin Hex Master Dave! GHMD is now a character in the scene and then gets to go home with a belly full of laughs and some sweet swag. The whole affair is going to be recorded for podcast goodness!

Come check it out and roll the die!
