Damsels and Dragons is an 8 episode series comprising 3 to 4 minutes each. The episodes alternate between the Cleric and Thief who are trying to rescue the Warrior and Wizard who are locked in a chamber after an encounter with the Monster splits the group.
The women are playing a simple yet engaging LARP, or Live Action Role Play: people acting out an adventure, in this case a fantasy one with a moderator who sits on the side observing events, describing what the players see, clarifying questions and calling hits as needed.
Bemusingly they are playing the LARP in costume in an urban setting that looks like someones forested back yard and room. Which adds to the surreal feel of the story as it unfolds.
The acting is surprisingly good and it does not feel silly or a parody despite the whole premise.
There are also a set of 4 pre-game player introductions I have not yet seen.
All-in-all it was an enjoyable tale.
