Experience: Above average computing skills and previous experience with OBS/Streamlabs a huge plus. please include any relevant experience in your "additional info" on the last page of your application.
Note: We're intentionally setting these requirements a bit higher and narrower than is strictly necessary. We want to avoid unforeseen difficulties and configurations we haven't tested ourselves. Please be willing to close background processes, etc in order to free up resources if necessary.
The last page of this application asks for a URL that will share your system specs with us. Please visit http://specr.me and follow the instructions. You will be given a URL that will show us your specs!
There is one level of commitment for True Dungeon Volunteers:
Full-Time -- Volunteer full time (arrive Thursday, full days Friday - Sunday, depart Monday)
Due to the different type of event, the ONLY positions we need to fill are DM's, a few Coaches, NPC's, and a few Admin positions (Hostess/Epilogue). Please keep this in mind when choosing your volunteer role of choice.
