PAX East 2020 may have been the last in-person convention of the year, or longer, but that hasn’t stopped Penny Arcade and Reedpop from hosting another event. PAX Online is set to start in just a couple of weeks, and it’s bringing some big star power with it. We got some more details about this today with the reveal of a star-studded lineup of celebrities for the “Panel of Legends – Great D&D Tales Brought to Life in Core” panel. Focused on the new Manticore system of RPG, the panel should interest any hardcore players.
“D&D’s brightest stars will share tales from their personal campaigns, and for the first time explore them as interactive experiences inside Core, a new platform for creating and playing games,” reads the panel description. “After playing through these epic D&D memories, the panelists will then embark on a new adventure across the winning games from Core’s Dungeons & Dragons Design-A-Dungeon Contests. All of the playable D&D content revealed during the panel, including the contest winners and celebrity-inspired dungeons, will be accessible for free on the Core platform through portals in a special D&D hub world.” You can read more about the contest right here or see the video below.
So who all is involved? Here’s the full lineup…
Deborah Ann Woll (Relics & Rarities, True Blood, Daredevil)
Jerry Holkins (Acquisitions Incorporated, Penny Arcade)
Reggie Watts (The Late, Late Show with James Cordon, Comedy Bang! Bang!)
Sam Riegel (Critical Role)
Todd Kenreck – Moderator (D&D Beyond)
WWE Superstar Xavier Woods (WWE, UpUpDownDown)
And special guests from Manticore Games
