GOLD is a television comedy for the web about the personal and professional struggles of two teams of professional Goblins & Gold Role Playing Gamers.
Season 1 of GOLD, the Series launched in November of 2008, with the season finale landing in late June of 2007. All told, it's about an hour and a half of quality television, viewable from the website http://www.goldtheseries.com in standard and high definition. We want to bring this excellent season of TV to DVD, so that it can be enjoyed by a much wider audience.
In order to do so, we need to do a fair amount of technical tweaking to the episodes, remixing color and sound so that it meets DVD quality standards, and mastering our DVD. In addition we wanna provide some extra content - outtakes, re-cut scenes, commentary tracks - which will be available only on DVD. In order to do all of this for our community, long-time fans and fans-to-be, we need to raise only $2500.
Not convinced? If it helps, GOLD was an official selection of the 2009 New York Television Festival. And take a look at just a few of the great reviews GOLD has garnered for our first season:

“That the cast does such an incredible job connecting these classic sporting show moments to something as seemingly ridiculous as a bunch of aging guys playing "Dungeons & Dragons" is nothing short of spectacular.”
- Tubefilter
“The cast is extremely talented and blend perfectly into their characters...with a focus on script and performances over plot gimmicks and formula...”
- Tilzy.TV
“GOLD is good enough to be on TV, right now. It deserves (nay, demands!) to be syndicated.”
- Greywulf’s Lair
“...one of the best-acted web series that I've come across...”
- RPGBlogII
“I have another favorite web series to put beside The Guild and Dr. Horrible.”
- Grumbling Dwarf
“Gold is hilarious show dedicated to the hobby and all gamers should check it out.”
- RPGLabyrinth

GOLD DVD Club members will get the rewards listed to the right. In addition, we'll keep you up to date on all the progress with the GOLD Season 1 DVD, as well as our work on GOLD Season 2, our upcoming GOLD Character Card Game, and all GOLD-related projects.
Thanks for reading. I hope you join us.
