From Shaping the Live RPG Plus Adventure, to Being Immortalized in a Syrinscape SoundSet, Attendees of PAX Aus Have More Reasons Than Ever to Make Some Noise:  Make history with Australia's own Dicestormers at PAX Aus, October 30 - November 1, 2015.

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (October 22, 2015) – Syrinscape, creator of the apps that put the power of custom, movie-like sound effects, soundscapes, music, and dynamic audio solutions at the fingertips of the gamer, announces today the line-up of activities scheduled for PAX Australia, taking place in Melbourne, October 30 – November 1, 2015.

Live RPG Plus (Friday12:00pm – Dropbear Theatre)The audience will shape the adventure and make history in this live, interactive, RPG event, featuring the Dicestormers and legendary game designer Chris Avellone. Live RPG Plus is the next-gen tabletop gaming experience, brought to life by Realm Works, Syrinscape, and Game Master and Syrinscape creator Benjamin Loomes. To help shape the characters the players will play, to effect the outcomes (the funnier the better), to heckle or otherwise participate, audience members are encouraged to share their ideas live in the auditorium as well as via Twitter @Dicestormers or #LiveRPGPlus. 

Gaming Blind – Accessibility and Tabletop Games (Friday2:00pm – Bunyip Theatre)
As table gaming is in something of a renaissance, how many of those games are accessible for blind or low vision players, without modification? About five. Join the panel as they share personal stories and discuss what can and is being done to make RPGS and other tabletop games more accessible to people with low vision and blindness, and share our passion for broadening the reach of tabletop games.

Become Immortalized on a Syrinscape RPG SoundSet!
Attendees of PAX Aus have the opportunity to become immortalized in the upcoming Peasants Revolt SoundSet from Syrinscape.
