To go off of this and Cisabs Public Dungeon content I have some ideas id like to pivot to. There are connections to be had and relationships to be made. Leveraging those relationships to the benefit of all can be extremely helpful.
King you were able to form and share a personal connection with Meeple recently that allows us to strengthen our tie to not just a web2 but web3 community. B33F and his game proposal with Rama building a video game and all the strong overall relationship we have with community art we as a group are trying to build the ability for others to experience and appreciate WAGDIE like we do, but in other ways.
Thats why through establishing strong tangible relationships with business professionals in my city (Breweries, restaurants, art schools, t-shirt manufacturers) I want to try and put on an event or experience people can have.
People in my town want to go somewhere and experience something. Currnely I have attended 3 networking crypto meet ups and do a lot of socializing in my day job I would have the ability to solicit an event for people to show up at.
Id like to try and form some relationships in my area with breweries or a social event I think it would be possible to showcase something like a Public dungeon run or show case of some sort.
If people got to hang out and chill/socialize but while they were doing it for that hour with a beer or two, people got to decide or vote on what happens during the run on twitter.
Being able to have an interface where we can also show a tally of all the community members playing/staking/voting/answering or streaming of some sort could help.
There would really be need for start up cost, but if I were to suggests costs it would be to pay a small devoted team to build the dungeon run that makes it worth people wanting to attend (20-30 people low end 50 on a high end) If it was successful enough and I charged the second time around a cover charge we could try asking for $10 entry and allowing that to flow back into the conclave. Id prefer to pay the artists the time to put together something worth show casing than pay the promotor, but I think it would be important to have some form of start of cash to help get my foot in the door places. I’m thinking anywhere from $500-$1000 USD. This could even be used to rent the space, but I’m more than willing to front some cash to help host the event.
Time: 4 months prep. I think to give a whole month to develop a dungeon run and for me to share or build an event or show I think I could partner with some people in my community to help. I have someone in my community who makes IRL art and is doing their own NFT line currently (https://www.charliehewittstudio.com/).
Ive had some contact with people he associates with and would love to try and collab with him on doing some art show or event planning together to piggyback off each other to bring attention to NFTs/crypto/business/art in general, there are several angles you could come at it with. This would take time and attention to build these relationships with this goal in mind which takes away from my day job at a mid-level financial firm. I associate with a lot of business professionals and could easily promote something like this if it was done right.
I would not be offended to have ideas and suggestions on steering this, but with other open collaborations, I would love to see people get paid for creating the art and content and just let me promote it.
I would require the help of artists to provide me with art, content, or assets so that I could cut down on costs working on graphic design or marketing when I could hopefully rely on the support of talented artists.
Ultimately, after doing hopefully a couple of these leading up to the video game beta or release, we could then do a larger event for a game release which can be a deeper conversation, but depending on how the game is played, id love to see people be able to experience this wether its having 1 station or 5)
I think it’s long overdue that we feed a little bit of the artists and people that devote time to developing and expanding WAGDIE and in order for it to be sustainable we need to heavily rely on web2 connections.
At the very least, if there was an ability to catch a run or record some sort of experience that can be shown to pitch someone, I think its something worth promoting to get 20-50 other people to experience.
