"Cors was my brother, and a damned fine Dwarf at that. I'm Bors, his adopted brother."
"Adopted? But you're both-"
"Dwarves? GOD no. I'm just a stupidly short Gruff Human."
"... But your beard is so..."
"Amazing? I KNOW! Thank you, I take after my mother!"
Have every single NPC played by the same actor, who also plays the DM.
Have you seen "[One for All](https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6-7feKhsltRncm6kow_YIVT-SEjTNVYE)" on Youtube? They do exactly this, with the actor for the DM playing every NPC regardless of gender and it's absolutely hilarious. As the forever DM constantly stuck running for horny parties, my favourite episode is "Roll to Seduce."
Don't even make it a twin or anything. Just bring the new character in and ignore the fact it's the same actor.
Yeah. I think it's better if they're not related at all. Hell, having them die in a dungeon and then finding a prisoner in the next room played by the same actor.
We need a D&D movie that's treated like The LEGO Movie or LEGO Batman, not a self-serious wannabe Lord of the Rings. I want HarmonQuest but with a script, live action, and a massive special effects budget. Use D&D's lore for easter eggs, but don't focus on that. Instead make a movie about *why* people play D&D.
Aside from the special effects budget that's The Gamers series. Honestly, I'd love to see what Dead Gentlemen Productions could do with a big budget.
So basically Landfill from Beerfest.
edit. literally doubled my karma and got my first award with a beerfest reference.
There is one, it's actually called the gamers and its free to watch on YouTube. 100% recommend!

Theres actually an older movie about d&d where this happens. I can't think of what it's called, but the joke is the character keeps dying so the guy wrote up like 50 character sheets to bring in a new character whenever they die. It regularly cuts between the players at the table, and the actors playing their characters in the game. Super old movie, maybe late 90s early 00s but it's hilarious
>Super old movie, maybe late 90s early 00s
This statement makes me feel old.
“Hey, I’m Dave Macintosh”
“You look just like Mac Daniels, a friend of ours that recently died.”
“That’s ridiculous, I don’t look like anybody.”
Has anyone seen Conjurer Sanders or Jack Inyabaux?
Have the killed character wear an eyepatch over his left eye. His replacement shows up with an eyepatch over the right eye.
There should be twenty different endings to each scene depending on the dice rolls
honestly the best episode of community.
The reality is that dice rolls do not change things all that much. Maybe you have to retreat or something like that.... but really the DM has a plan, and is going to work around what actually happens (or at least when i am running the game).
note- not really a railroad DM, i literally had a player ask me where they should go.... and i told them to sell all their gear and open a dry goods store. They had plenty of hooks, and the player was just being lazy. There were 3 leads that they had enough to go investigate, 2 NPCs that sort of exsist as quest givers, or they could have just noped out to wherever they felt like. the session was "fly by the seat of my pants" since i have never done it and wanted to see how it would go (descriptions were a lot worse, but overall the players did not really notice that my notepad litetally just had notes from work on it).
This suddenly became a Mexican soap opera
if they made the movie to be like an actual game of dnd turned cinematic, that would be awesome.
sadly their going to use the name and recycle the same basic fantasy movie premises like they did last time they made a DnD movie...
i will retract all my naysaying if they get Chris Pine to play a Bard, though.
>if they made the movie to be like an actual game of dnd turned cinematic, that would be awesome.
I really want to watch a movie where the film ends mid second act because the protagonists got obscenely lucky and succeeded despite learning nothing or serious challenge to their beliefs.
“There was a guy before me? Clears throat* he must have been a great guy”
Boblin the Goblin? Oh that's my twin brother. I'm Coblin the Goblin. What do you mean Boblin the Goblin is dead?!
Turns out that Beerfest is a D&D Campaign. Who knew?
"If it's ok with you guys, can you call me Landfill 2?"
My spore druid, who believes in the cycle of life, to his teammates: "Comfort yourselves with the thought that if you die today, you will be replaced by someone better by next week!"
Made that joke in voltron
I'm Shiro's twin brother, Jiro!
I recently ran Lost Mines of Phandelver with some first-time players and one of my players named his fighter Jor-el. They (intentionally) skipped the lvl1 area and went straight to the lvl2 dungeon and Jor-el died. Well, in the next room they freed a prisoner named Kal-el, another human fighter with the same stats as Jor-el.
those movies are notoriously bad. Even the best one is still bad.
But didn't your brother die in your backstory
Yes, but they had another, who is exactly like them in every way
It's time to let go buddy
I vote Sean Bean and David Windham
I'm certain this film will be trying to recreate the high fantasy success of LotR. They're not going to be breaking the 4th wall or having players controlling the characters, they're just using the D&D lore to make a fantasy film. They might include a dungeon master but even that seems like a stretch that honors the source but makes film making difficult.
