Dungeons & Dragons loves the amazing video streams produced by our fans. This community-generated live-play highlights what’s fantastic about D&D—sitting down together with your friends to tell a grand story!

To celebrate, we’ve invited a bunch of D&D streamers and luminaries to Seattle, Washington to hang out and roll some dice on June 2nd and 3rd! This two-day event is called the Stream of Annihilation and it’s two full days of streaming that D&D fans won’t want to miss. We’ll have folks from Acquisitions Incorporated: The "C" Team,  Misscliks, Maze Arcana, Critical Role, and Dice, Camera, Action! with Chris Perkins, not to mention international gaming groups like Yogscast's HighRollers (U.K.) and Dragon Friends (Australia).

Then each group of streamers will play or share a sample of what to expect from the campaigns they’ll be running over the summer that preview the new D&D story. There will be multiple live games, interviews, new product unveils and improvised hilarity each day, starting at 10am PT and ending at 10pm each night. You’ll get introduced to the High Rollers crew delving into uncharted territory DMed by Mark Hulmes, a new Misscliks show investigating rumors called Risen, two weekly groups from our friends Satine Phoenix and Ruty Rutenberg at Maze Arcana, a new group of L.A. actors called Girls Guts Glory, and more!

Throughout the Stream of Annihilation, we’ll drop details on our expanded D&D Twitch programming, new accessories fans have been clamoring for coming later this year, and amazing board games and products from our partners. You’ll hear from Cryptic Studios about plans for Neverwinter, Curse Media for D&D Beyond, as well as WizKids, Gale Force 9, Fantasy Grounds, Roll20, and more. Plus, like any Dungeon Master worth their salt, we have a few exciting surprises to pull from our bags of holding!

You can follow her adventures on Twitter and just about everywhere else under the username "AnnaProsser."

Born from a family of geeks and gamers, Kelly Link has spent the majority of her life absorbed into the world of gaming. Beginning at the age of five, when her parents first introduced her to Dungeons & Dragons, she knew gaming was meant to be a part of her life. After graduating with a bachelors and a year of live streaming on Twitch.tv, Kelly was hired by HiRez Studios as a streamer, producer and host for their live and online programming.

Dragon Friends is a show where a bunch of idiot Australian comedians muddle their way through a Dungeons & Dragons campaign. They’ve been doing it for almost two years now and you think they'd be better at it. Featuring David Harmon, Ben Jenkins, Edan Lacey, Simon Greiner, Alex Lee, Michael Hing and an assortment of our friends from comedy and sometimes even the telly. Accompanied with the live music and occasional snide comment by Benny Davis (The Axis of Awesome).

Girls Guts Glory is an all-female RPG group. Our main focus is having fun, playing D&D with our girlfriends. A lot of time is spent drinking wine, eating food and catching up before we even start playing. We're all actresses living in Los Angeles, so it's fun to be silly, improvise and play roles we'd never get to play in real life. I mean, who doesn't love shooting crossbows at a narcissistic ogre?
