Announcing...
Dungeons and Data Monsters at .conf20!

Update 10/23/2020: .conf20 and our 3 Dungeons & Data Monsters events are now over, but stay tuned to our Community Blog for news on fun opportunities like this in the future for our awesome community members!

TUNE IN LIVE on 10/19, 10/20, and 10/21 at twitch.tv/splunkinc 

What Is This?

This fun .conf20 ancillary event is a live-streamed online role-playing game where members of our community and a few special celebrity guests will explore the fantasy world of the Splunk Cloudom and the Data Age Alliance and attempt to role play, solve puzzles, battle data monsters, and become Splunky Heroes of the Data Age Alliance! It most closely resembles a "one-shot" game of Dungeons and Dragons, 5th Edition, by Wizards of the Coast, and with our own Splunk-y spin on the fantasy setting, characters, quests, monsters, and more!

Okay… but like… what is “Dungeons and Dragons”?

For more than 40 years, this game has garnered a cult-like following worldwide and across generations. And who better to help us explain it than Wizards of the Coast themselves:

The first Dungeons & Dragons game was played back when Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson chose to personalize the massive battles of their fantasy wargames with the exploits of individual heroes. This inspiration became the first fantasy role-playing game, in which players are characters in an ongoing fantasy story. This new kind of game has become immensely popular over the years, and D&D has grown to include many new ways to vividly experience worlds of heroic fantasy.

The core of D&D is storytelling. You and your friends tell a story together, guiding your heroes through quests for treasure, battles with deadly foes, daring rescues, courtly intrigue, and much more. You can also explore the world of Dungeons & Dragons through any of the novels written by its fantasy authors, as well as engaging board games and immersive video games. All of these stories are part of D&D.
