In this video tutorial–requested by Caius Wallen–I show how you can use Xsplit to create a Discord/Roll20 screen for recording or streaming TT RPG sessions online. This tutorial assumes you have basic knowledge of Discord, Xsplit and Roll20.
In order you use this tutorial you will need a Discord account, a copy of Xsplit (the free one is fine) and a Roll20 account with a game already set up.

We’ve recently wrapped up the Rebel Strike Trilogy, a linked series of three sessions using the FFG Age of Rebellion Star Wars rules set in my Adventures on the Outer Rim version of the Star Wars universe, I’m going to gather all of the material about it in this post.
- Kaid-Sen: A dour sharpshooter working for the Rebellion.
- Inigo Stazzi: A happy go lucky hothead who somehow manages to get the job done.
- T7-01: A sharp-witted astromech with a talent for penetrating enemy computer systems.
The Rebellion has rescued a Quarren known as Sekas Proko from Tattooine, the Quarren has access to experimental stealth technology but will only turn it over if the rebels free his ally Berek Nur from the clutches of the Empire. Kaid, Inigo and T7 board the prison ship Leviathan and attempt to free him.

With the stealth-tech in the hands of the Rebellion it is fitted to the cruiser Constantine and sent out for a test, however, when activated the ship vanishes, it re-appears later in the Draconis sector inside the Imperial blockade around the frozen moon of Ga-Ri V. The fleet intends to distract the Imperials whilst Kaid, T7 and Inigo sneak aboard to investigate.

With Inigo away on an important mission, Kaid calls in a favour from a Sullustan contact of his and manages to arrange for some much needed R&R for himself and T7 on the peaceful ocean world of Spira. However an old enemy pursues them there, learning of this Tyber Zann, wishing to clear his debt sends the bounty hunter Remo Williams to aid them.

I had a great time running this trilogy and was lucky enough to have four excellent players involved in it, there were the usual scheduling problems and such like that tend to plague this sort of game but we stuck with and created a fun story that I certainly enjoyed GM-ing and the players seemed to enjoy getting involved in 🙂
In the fourth episode of our 3Brothers Campaign the heroes are confronted by an angry nobleman intent on retireving his fled wife, they also listen to a sermon in the Church of Abraham and discover some information about a villain from the past, who may be linked to Ordious’ present.
It may seem a little odd to do a teaser video for the campaign, after all we’re 3 sessions in to our 5E D&D Campaign with the fourth session taking place tomorrow, however I had some free time and wanted to make a short video hinting at some of the campaign worlds history, the battle to throw off the shacles of Gith oppression occurred 100 years before the start of our campaign.
The Obisidian Portal site for the campaign can be found here: https://threebrothersdd5ecampaign.obsidianportal.com/
In this episode we talk a little about the importance of being fair and maintaining consistency when it comes to the rules.
Check out this episode!
John Drury has recently re-started his Youtube channel, now called Roll for Your Fate; as a fellow Fate-enthusiast he is continuing to put out some top-notch content for the Fate RPG. In one of his recent videos he does a Q&A for Fate, well worth a watch 🙂
Please note: This video was not created by myself nor did I have any involvement in the content, that said, it’s a great video created by someone who really knows the Fate system and has a great enthusiasm for it, I highly recommend giving it a watch.
Last night we reached the climax of our trilogy, where our Inquisitors pursued a Jedi to the Hutt planet of Varda VI; attempting to retain diplomatic relations whilst bringing down a rebel insurrection; an epilogy video was uploaded this morning, you can now see the complete trilogy from start to finish:
