I’ve been slack in covering the world of Dungeons & Dragons on this blog so far, a situation which I hope to rectify soon. In the mean time, I thought I’d share something with you.
Last year, I came across Gold! The Series, a web series created by David Nett, which takes place in a world where role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons are treated much like professional sports are. The story follows a “team” of players preparing for a Goblins and Gold tournament. The team is even has a player recovering from injuries to both his dice rolling hand and his pride.
The show is shot entirely on digital still cameras converted to shoot HD video. The cast and crew are volunteers and it’s quite obvious that they love what they’re doing.
Season 1 was completed last year and they’ve just posted the first episode of Season 2, Night of the Zombie King.
Check it out and have a good laugh at a geek’s expense.
