Old-Schooled #10 Promo

Time sure does fly by, and Old-Schooled has already had ten tournaments under its belt. And for the tenth tournament in the series I wanted to do something special, and that’s where not only this challenge for the tournament comes from, but also where the video comes from. Featured in this video is Evan Small as himself, Abraham Forosan as the Cameraman, and myself as, well, myself, and Abaddon. Music this time around is the Pixel Peeker Polka provided by http://incompetech.com and Deathborn’s theme from F-Zero GX.

Old-Schooled April and May Promos

Whoops, once again I’ve proven my inability to update my page with normal updates as I get wrapped up in things. So sorry about that. For those of you who don’t already know this I’ve been expanding the Old-Schooled presence on the internet, adding a facebook group for it. Eventually I plan to move information about the tournament here as a permanent archive, but that’s still in the works. But anyway, here’s the last two promos for tournaments. Yes, they’re ads, but they’re fun to watch too.

Old-Schooled March 2012 Promotional Video

Normally I don’t post these, so perhaps I’m tooting my own horn a little bit here, but if you look at my youtube channel you’ll notice there’s a lot of promotional videos for Old-Schooled, a gaming tournament I host in the area. It’s something I have a lot of fun doing, and since I like video editing, it was really a matter of time before I decided to put some of it down to film. The following video though, I’m pretty happy with, as it’s literally an advertisement for the next tournament that I think turned out really well. So well in fact that I’m happy to share it here. Enjoy.

Dungeons and Dragons and the Microsoft Surface

This has been posted a whole lot.  I think the first time this has been mentioned the most was this article from Gizmodo. In any case I am a sharing man, and so I will share what is quite possibly one of the coolest videos for something D&D related I’ve ever seen. In it the microsoft touch surface is used as a board to play D&D. Enjoy
