Dungeons & Data Monsters is our fun, Splunk-y spin on the popular tabletop role-playing game, “Dungeons and Dragons” (5th Edition). Our inaugural version launched last year as part of .conf20, and this next installment will have an extra-special twist or two to celebrate both our Community B-sides conference and upcoming “Splunk O11y Day” (deets on O11y Day later this week!)


Did someone say SWAG?!?

YEP! And we’re giving away tons…for our live viewers, for anyone entering for a chance to be a player, and for the lucky final folks selected to play live! We’ve got a special hardcover Splunk recipe book, exclusive Dungeons & Data Monsters dice sets, drones… and much more. The goods just keep on comin’, and it’s all for you, our beloved community.



Did you say we can PLAY... LIVE?

We’re looking for a few brave heroes to join us and play Dungeons & Data Monsters LIVE!
