The Gamers

Synopsis: One late night in a college dorm, four socially inept geeks immerse themselves in a fantasy world of their own creation. As their characters journey through forbidden kingdoms, ancient ruins, and the forsaken wilderness, the players attempt to solve a mysterious puzzle that could ultimately mean the difference between getting a life and death. Who is The Shadow? Where is The Princess hidden? Will any of them ever find a date? And how long do they have before their annoyed neighbors call the cops?

As the story begins, our heroes have vowed to rid the lands of their mortal enemy, The Shadow, and his evil minions.

Their endless quest continues...

...during finals week.


I got a test in the morning...

... hit the tendon.

You gotta hit the tendon

Could you freaks keep it down?

Uh, yeah, sure.

I have a huge test in the morning and a book to finish...

... and I can't concentrate wich you guys jerking off all night. Knock it off.

Come on. Let's go guys.

That was such a good movie.

That's easily the best anime thing I've ever seen in my life.

He had to have, like, a dex of 20 or something.

That's true, that's true.

I completely agree.

You know what I'd like to see?


A fight between that guy and the dark elf with the scimitars.

OOOHH! Totally, totally.

That'd be awesome.

So, where's Mark?

Uh, oh, uh, he had uh, he's going to be late...

... he had a paper or something.

No. Actually, I think he's going out with Molly tonight.

What? Oh man!

Dude, what's up with that?

People with girlfriends, man.

Everyone have their character sheets?

Right here, definitely.

Everyone got their dice?

I get your dice right here.


Yout're going to be needing

those tonight, ya know?

Oh yeah, that means battles guys!

Big battles. Oh yeah.

Uh huh. I might finally get to use that sword of ogre decapitation.

Djahhh, that'd be awesome.

I'dlove it.

We're starting here...

...everyone remember where we left off?

Oh yeah.

It was at the battle of Black Fields

Where Rogar's blood brother was killed.


No, guys, that was last week.

No, I remember. We were at the town of Westhaven...

... um. Nimble's sister got murdered outside the temple.

Why?! WHY?!?!

Dude, we're way past there.


We are?

Oh, I don't remember that.

You ended up outside Dragonmead.

Don't you remember?

The inn? The note pinned to the door.

Oh, the note!

Remember that?

With the dagger in the door and the

note hanging down. I wrote that down.

I said that the first time.

Well, let's just read that

again to recap that, shall we?

From the hand of his Majesty,

Orlando the reasonably just,

on the eve of Haversford

in the Year of III Fortune.

I fear for the life of the princess, my only daughter and heiress to my kingdom.

She was kidnapped from the royal gardens and

taken south by the biack priests in service of...

"The Shadow"

The Shadow?!!

The Shadow?!!!

The Shadow.

He has threatened to throw her into

the pit of slow and horribly painful death.

unless I surrender the throne.

You are the princess's only hope.

You brave adventurers...

...Rogar the Barbarian, warrior prince of the Icewalker tribe...

...Newmoon, elven archer and ambassador to the realms of man...

...Nimble, master agent of the Thieves Guild,

only recently paroled by royal decree...

...and Ambrose, journeyman, mage

of the West Haven Wizards' School.

Dude, don't forget Mark!

What? Oh right...

Mark the Red. Last of the Blood-Fire Berserkers.

Only you can save the princess,

succeed ahd you may name your reward.

A noble quest, let us free the wench and slay her captor

Mane our reward, access to

the kingdom treasury of course.

We should speak with the

folk in the commons first.

They may know what

awaits us to the South.

I agree with the mage.

To the commons.

Alright. The common room is

full of travelers and a few town folk.

You find a table near the fireplace.

What do you do?

Rogar orders the

strongest drink they have.

The barmaid warns you.

'Dwarven ale is not for the weak of stomach'.

Yeah, you might want

to pass on that.

Relax, Rogars stamina is 18, there's

only a 10% chance he'll be affected.

Then you're really

going to risk it?


Ok. Roll your stamina.

you fail.

The barmaid warned him.

It would seem that our barbarian

friend cannot handle his ale.

Ha! It is too early for ale. but the

time is always right for some wine.

I'll be back with four,

make that three, glasses.

But you haven't any money.

However shall you pay?

Leave that up to me.

There's only one patron at the bar,

and he doesn't notice you.

I pick his pocket.

Roll it.

Ha ha. Got it.

Does he have any, uh, weapons or anything?

Yeah, he's got a knife.

I take that too.

Ok. Roll it.

Ha Ha, Cool. I'm kien(k)?ing ass!

I want to steal his pants.

You're not serious.

I am serious.

Why do you want his pants?

I don't want them. I just want to see if I can steal them.

Fine go ahead, but you suffer

a -8 penalty for difficulty.

I don't believe it.

Are you quite finished?

Yeah. Oh, and I order some

wine from the innkeeper.

Dude, I can't belive

you took his pants!

I know:
Lucky roll.

Dude, am I still unconscious?


Alright. I took around the common

room. do I recognize anyone?

Let's find out.

He's about 7 feet tall and

he's built like a lighthouse.

Not good

Oh Sh*t.

He's got a nasty scar on his cheek,

and an ugly club in his hand.

It's Hunk, the mercenary you guys left for

dead outside the Castle of Almost Certain Doom.

He recognizes you instantly, snarls

and lumbers over to your table.

Yout bastards!

Tought I was dead, did not you?

Vell. I'm not, but soon yur(you)? going to be,

because I'm going to kill you dead, d'yah hear me?

D-E-D, Dead!

Well, sh*t! What do we do?

Am I still unconscious?

Oh yeah.

Did Hunk see Nimble at the bar?


Nimble was at the bar when Hunk
