Storyline

One late night in a college dorm, four socially inept geeks immerse themselves in a fantasy world of their own creation. As their characters journey through forbidden kingdoms, ancient ruins, and the forsaken wilderness, the players attempt to solve a mysterious puzzle that could ultimately mean the difference between getting a life and death. Who is The Shadow? Where is The Princess hidden? Will any of them ever find a date? And how long do they have before their annoyed neighbors call the cops? Written by Mark Thomason

Did You Know?

Goofs

After the adventurers killed the Shadow the Gamemaster states that Nimble finds a secret trapdoor. When the characters open the door it is a door in the wall, not a trapdoor. It has to be said, anyway, that "find secret trapdoors" is a D&D gaming term including any kind of secret passageways, be it on the floor, wall or even roof. See more »

Quotes

The Gamemaster: Guys, please! I want you to roleplay this. Remember you've never met this guy before, the last guys you met tried to kill you, and you're standing in the ruins of an evil, cursed castle. Just act appropriately.
Magellan: Hello, I'm Magellan, a traveling mage. I notice your group has no wizard.
Rogar, the Barbarian: You seem trustworthy. Would you care to join us in our noble quest?
Magellan: Yes. Yes I would.

Hilarious! This is the *real* D&D movie. :)
28 July 2003 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

Hilarious! This is the *real* D&D movie. The switch from the real world of a bunch of college dorks playing D&D to the fantasy world of their characters acting out the action is appropriately seamful (the opposite of seamless). All of gaming's cliches are here; long-term gamers will see such gems as "Meeting the new party member", "What to do with the character of a player who couldn't make the game", "Hey--I rolled it", and "Well my *character* wouldn't do that".

Good stuff. Best watched with your old high school or college gaming group.
