Storyline

Long ago in a land ravaged by strife, an ancient race of mages crafted the ultimate weapon to destroy their enemies, and end all wars. They called it the Aryx Orthian, the Scourge Of Worlds. Hidden safely for hundreds of years, the Scourge is now sought by a new swarm of darkness threatening to unleash its secrets. To save the world, three fearless heroes-Regdar the human warrior, Lidda the rogue halfling, and Mialee the elf wizard-must embark on a treacherous quest and choose between honor and evil, between life and death. But the choice is not theirs. It is yours. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The characters of Regdar, Lidda and Mialee are referred to by D&D players as the "iconic characters" as they were created to be used as examples in the 2002 edition of the Dungeons and Dragons rulebook. The three characters also make regular appearances in a series of Dungeons and Dragons novels by T.H. Lain beginning in 2002. The three characters as shown are consistent with their literary counterparts, except that Mialee has less hair due to the logistics of computer animation. See more »

The concept of this DVD is particularly appealing. As a fan of both fantasy films and the long-dormant gamebook genre of the 1980's (Choose Your Own Adventure, Endless Quest, etc.), I saw this title as a potential test project in a whole new generation of "gamebooks." I'm not a big fan of computer animation. I think that most of the time, CG characters look a little too much like something out of a local Tech school commercial rather than a fantasy world. However, the animation here is pretty decent and, although not particularly atmospheric, it is reminiscent of cinematic portions of Computer RPGs.

The biggest disappointment is in the plot itself. I was expecting something much more epic than what was given. What we do get is a plot more like an episode of the old "D&D" cartoon show than "Lord of the Rings" or other high fantasy. I won't go into specifics, but the "big twist" is relatively transparent, and the various finales are extremely lackluster.

It's an interesting idea, and I hope more of these are made, so we can have a DVD gamebook worthy of this great concept.
