A group of college students, Josh, Kyle, Grace, Zelda, and Jordan, come together to play Dungeons and Dragons. Each kid has his own kinks and quirks, but everything goes pretty smoothly until one day Jordan is too much of a jerk and is kicked out of the group. Now a new player, Aaron, must enter their group to fill the seat. Hijinks occur as the new man tries to understand this convoluted game and the old group member seeks revenge for his ousting. The story is expanded as well by a glimpse into the happenings of their D&D world at the beginning of every episode.
It is understandable that you would want to know where exactly your money is going in this production so here is a breakdown of the types of things needing to be financed.
Locations: The magical and or dismal places we need to find to represent far off magical valleys and forests and or dark and evil places, like the average college dorm.
Props: All the little things that create the ambiance to a scene. Also, dice cost way more than you think they would and are so easy to lose.
Costumes: Would you believe a wizard is a wizard without a ridiculous hat? If your answer is no then we here at Mr. Snuggles Productions are proud of you. Would you believe that ridiculous hats generally cost a pretty penny? I can tell you from personal experience that, yes, they do.
Craft Services: Paying actors is hard to do, so instead we give them cheep food and run while their hands are full. I’m sorry, I mean we try to give them what little we can to thank them for helping us create this lovely show.

Our goal here with Roll for Initiative is simply to make people laugh. Some people call us asinine, but I don’t know what that means, so I prefer the term fun loving. That along with the fact that many of our crew enjoy the game of Dungeons & Dragons and are film students led us to believe that a comedy series about the game would be a wonderful idea. Feel free to call us after it’s done to say “I told you so”.

Risks and challenges
While I can tell you out of nothing other than sure hubris that I never mess up on anything ever, making a web series is not a one man job and so there are some rare issues that are always possible for any project. All of our crew are experienced individuals in their field with the ability to counter most mundane problems so the things that can sometimes be of trouble are those things that force us socially deficient film students to deal with the outside world. This includes things like securing locations, organizing cast, and all other third party deals that are prone to fall through or change last minute.
Furthermore, as college students we are very busy with “school work” and so a consistent output of work will prove challenging, but not impossible. Thank you for reading about this project and deciding to donate. I love you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
