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

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

Rogar, the Barbarian: [after encountering The Shadow] Send Mark after him!
[Everybody agrees in anticipation]
Mark: [controlled by the party members] Blood, death, and vengeance...
[Sound of bones breaking. Nimble, Newmoon, Magellan, and Rogar steps backwards in horror. Mark's decapitated body falls to the ground]
The Shadow: And now for the rest of you.
Rogar, the Barbarian: Great! Mark's gonna be pissed.

Shoestring genius
10 January 2004 | by (Berkeley, CA) – See all my reviews

This little movie is vastly better than it had any real right to be. When sitting down to watch a movie made about fantasy roleplaying by gamers on a shoestring budget, I was ready to cringe. Instead, the whole thing was well-paced, always funny and professional in every way (given the budget constraints). The DVD purchase is highly recommended. I eagerly await the next Dead Gentlemen production.
