Storyline

Jameson "Jaz" Colier, ex-college football star, is less than happy with how his life has turned out. A blown knee, a crappy apartment and a job at a package delivery service are the meager remains of a happy childhood and once promising football career. His only joy is in being team captain of a group of professional Goblins & Gold Role Playing Gamers with a reputation for ruthless game-play. And when his team is removed from the pro rankings for alleged cheating, even that begins to crumble. Needing a break from his life in Los Angeles, Jaz returns home to San Jose. While he's there, his high school Game Master arranges a night of Goblins & Gold for their old gaming group, something they haven't done together in over fifteen years. As the night progresses, the group has trouble reconciling the friends they once were with the people they've become and, in order to get through the night, Jaz and his fellow gamers must address unfinished (and sometimes unpleasant) business left to ...

In the Tradition of Gold, comes another serious gamer show
30 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So many independent-made shows by and for gamers are comedies. This is not. This is a serious drama. Some may call it melodramatic, and maybe that's true. Most tabletop gamers are adults, and while the comedies that have been made have their place and most of them are good fun, I like that we have a mature, serious alternative if we want it. The acting is solid and the world is populated with believable characters. Some of them are downright unlikable.

Know what you getting into and you will likely enjoy yourself.

Night of the Zombie King takes place during the events of Gold: the Series. Old friends reunite to tackle the game module that had lain unfinished after a night when many of them parted ways. The night in question is spoken of in infamy and with lots of pain and repressed feelings. The gang is back together now, years later and the game master has preserved all of their character sheets and marked their place in the module.

Can they pick up where they left off and be the friends they once were? Or, will the misdeeds of their past prove too much for their friendship to bear?
