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 »

Alternate Versions

A "director's edition" was released in 2004 containing additional scenes and options. See more »

Well worth it for D&D Players
25 February 2004 | by imdbmyklSee all my reviews

This movie/game tells the story of a party of adventurers sent to capture a rogue Cleric of Pholtus and bring him back to his temple. The situation gets complicated though when the party meets another group intent on stopping him more permanently...

The movie plays for segments lasting up to 3 minutes, before presenting the viewer with a choice of which way the characters should progress the story. After selecting a choice, the movie continues along that path, presenting another choice every couple of minutes through the movie. A full 'viewing' of the film takes about 40 minutes.

As one other viewer noted, it is not possible to fast-forward through scenes that you have seen before, BUT you CAN use the chapter skip button on your DVD to skip to the end of the scene and straight to the next choice. This means that the absence of a fast forward is a very minor annoyance.

The story changes quite significantly depending on the choices made, though these different arcs will tend to rejoin later in the film. Some choices can result in death, though if these are midway through the film an option to restart at the last choice made is given. There are 4 different endings, each with differing amounts of success.

Dungeons and Dragons players (especially 3rd Edition) will see many aspects of the game faithfully reproduced in the movie. Spells, creatures and even some of the standard characters appear. I was pleased to see that this is not a 'kiddy' film, covering everything with cotton wool the way that the Dungeons and Dragons film did.

While the animation won't win any awards, it does the job and looks pretty good. My major gripe is the wooden animation in many fight sequences.

My rating of 7 assumes that the viewer will be at least familiar with the Dungeons and Dragons setting. Casual viewers may find it rates closer to a 6. I look forward to seeing more of these movies released in the future.
