    This is kinda like reading a bad fanfiction as it's being written. But there are moments of greatness.

    Goeff: 3 + 1 + 2 = 5; Immediately after, Ryan: 3 + 1 + 2 = 6 loooooooool

      I thought the same, I was convinced I counted it up as 6 and he said 5. I couldn't figure out how that math worked lol

    Shoutout to Frank. He hasn't been in anything since the first Immersion!

    This was tremendous by the way. I hope this test succeeds and that this becomes a semi-regular feature.

    I loved every minute of this DnD show, even if it was 3+ hours long and some won't like that I really enjoyed it. It is now 6am and I am really needing to sleep. But I was laughing so hard at so many moments during this that I can't wait for more. Ryan was incredibly funny due to the things that happened to his character and for a few quotes he created. The one that I wish was a shirt now was the "it's top of the pipe thinking, from bottom of the pipe guy".


    Credit to everyone for making this as entertaining as it was, I loved it all. However the absolute best moment was Michael knocking out Geoff near the end. When they had to roll the dice to see the outcome and Michael got a natural 20 I cracked up.

    This is fucking incredible. Some of the best content to come out from rooster teeth. I really hope this makes it to a full time show!!!!!!!!

    That was amazing. It really looked like everyone was having fun except maybe Michael at one point but then he got a critical hit and his mood seemed to change. I've loved RT and D&D for almost half my life now so this combination of the two was great to see.


    I'm a pathfinder/3.5e player so the changes in the system with 5e required a bit of an adjustment but it seems very streamlined. As a GM I love having a player like Geoff at the table. He brings some energy to the group and keeps the story moving even if he is trying ever angle he can to get an advantage some more legitamite than others.


    Keep it up guys, I look forward to seeing more!


    Edit: That set is amazing everything about it seems perfect for a game of D&D.

    This is really great. My only suggestion at this point is that they scan in a picture of the monsters from a monster compendium or something and put it in the corner of the screen so we can see what they're up against.


    Other than that small detail, I loved the absolute shit outta this. It makes me want to get back to playing D&D. I really hope it's well recieved enough to go on as a new series.

    I found myself lost in this story. It was so awesome to see how the guys handled their characters, and Frank is great as DM.

    Please give us more of this, so we can see how their actual characters do.

      This episode won't be because it's a pilot episode, but it's a pre-made one-shot campaign with pre-made characters. When/if this becomes an official series, it will be for everyone. It will be a longer campaign made by the DM, and the guys will make their own characters.

    Sweet. As a long-time DM, I like seeing how other DMs run their tables. I always learn something.


    I hope that you guys do a homemade campaign with characters you make yourselves for the actual series, if the actual series happens. Never liked running or playing premades. Always get that vibe of invisible barriers as soon as you step off the premade's path. Meanwhile, a homemade setting can be tailored to your strengths and weaknesses, and the adventures designed with your particular brand of chicanery in mind.


    Final note: Gus, Healing Word's casting time is a Bonus Action. Not only is it ranged, but you can do it AND a regular action AND a move in a single turn. That is why it is very worth it over Cure Wounds, at least at early levels where the HP gap isn't so broad. That AND that Healing Word's only component is Verbal, which means you could use it in many more dire situations than Cure Wounds, which requires at least one hand to be free for the Somatic component.

    only 14 min in and its great, but might I suggest a way for the audience to keep track of the players stats, such as health? Maybe a way to key it in? Or keep it small on the screen?

    If a fan or someone in the animation team doesn't make an animation for this, I will be sorely disappointed. I want to see Ryan's multiple attempts at faking a heart attack.

    "You're a wizard?"

    "Yeah"

    "And you're on land?"

    "Yeah"

    "Okay, it doubles damage."


    Love Geoff's made up rules. Between this and Theatre Mode, I have never been happier with you guys.

    Give more. So much more. Please.


    It's long but its D&D, I'd be sad if it wasn't long-form. The set is amazing, the TV table is perfect. Frank seems like a great DM for the players, who themselves mesh brilliantly.


    This is the kind of thing that I would watch on youtube despite my sponsorship, just to support it even more with my 1/10 a cent of ad revenue value. So much more. I beg of you.

    I really enjoyed this, I thought it was all very entertaining, with Geoff "Hearing the Gods" being hilarious, only to be topped by Michael killing him for being a prick. I have literally no experience with DnD but I found this entertaining as dicks.

      IF you have a good imaginative set of friends this is a pretty typical setting for a session haha. I remember one time I was able to fight a set of Black Knights using Rock Paper Scissors. Ended up skipping an entire puzzle over it xD
