Man oh man, we are having way more fun than anyone has a right to have working on a show. Seriously.
Example? Last night we had the cast play through a game of Dungeons and Dragons together. A few of the cast members had played before, but it was definitely a newbie training session - what die is which, what do all of these silly numbers on this piece of paper mean, and what do you mean that unicorn can talk??? Loads of fun and lots of laughs were had all around.
Some highlights from the evening:
-The barbarian using the dwarf as a battering ram to open the first door.
-The wizard waking up the unicorn by playing a mandolin and singing abominably. He rolled a two on his "musical abilities" check.
-The dwarf (we'll forgive her because it was her first time) after looting a treasure chest trying to make off with 250 gold without splitting it with the party. She tried to squeeze through the crevice in the wall but got stuck, so the rogue took her purse and split it evenly with everyone. He was then docked 50 experience points for doing the right thing.
It was great seeing them play together for the first time. I sat back and observed (doing that director thing, you know) so I had the chance to do a little photo documentation that I will now share with you!
Unfortunately, I can't label the photos themselves, so here are some clues so you can meet our lovely cast:
John Alex: Alfred Rudzki (red shirt and beard behind the DM screen)
John Francis: Ryan Boland (striped polo and glasses)
Tara: Jacque McFadden (Dark hair, grey sweatshirt)
Linda: Hillary Heath (The other lady)
Jason: Chris Richardson (Purple shirt)
Brandon: Dan Shaver (Plaid shirt, dark curly mop)
