What I liked

The characters were great, and the aspect and fun of DND was used in great accordance. It wasn’t too abstract that those who’ve never played couldn’t watch, but also held so well loved tropes that seasoned veterans could chuckle at. The beautiful backgrounds helped as well. Added to it the underlining story tugs at heart strings without being too obvious at the start.

What I didn't like

The story was unfortunately written to Fringe time so it could have fleshed out a bit more, and adding some more NPCs or physical villains would be super cool.

My overall impression

I’m a huge DND nerd. I feel only slight shame in admitting this fact. This one hit the feels, both in comedy and in heart. The actors did so well, and each fit there part. The backgrounds and lighting did an excellent job in bringing a small theatre to the woods, the magic was well played and I had a fun time all around.
