Quotes

Stefan Pokorny: Nothing in the world ever gets done rationally. You gotta be just a little bit nuts and prepared to just go full throttle and try to make it the greatest you can; whether you fail or succeed. A meeker heart will be, 'that's insanity' and that person will never do anything great. The fear of failure is hard. Survival is not guaranteed in this game.

Dwarvenaut....the journey to the unknown...a most excellent adventure
22 September 2016 | by hyacekSee all my reviews

This film talks about many things, Role Playing, Business, Society, Community, Drinking, Eating, and maybe even a Pirate reference or two. At its core, this movie excels at delivering a slice of life story that gives you a window into the many rooms and corridors of the main characters life. It may not have been intentional by the writers and directors, but the paths followed by Stefan mirror his livelihood....do I take the left passage or the right? This movie does a great job of taking you on that journey and gives you a window onto what the "road less traveled" might look like. It is inspiring and enlightening. A must watch for any role play fan or budding entrepreneur!
