Five friends fight evil in their weekly D&D game as a distraction from their turbulent lives.

Week #5 Hype It Roll For Damage

Roll For Damage is a comedy about five people who gather once a week to play a Dungeons and Dragons-esque pen-and-paper role-playing game. Their lives outside of the game are hilariously tumultuous and are often reflected in their “in-game” characters and scenarios. Thanks to careful writing and a wicked art style, the in-game portions of the show come to life with clarity and intrigue.

Still one of my favs moving through week 5. I like that you gave us some back story on some of the characters but I've love to know more about what brought them all together and what keeps them coming back to play each week. Folks who've never played RPGs might not get why the weekly meetups would continue so I look forward to seeing how your main character deals with this new-to-her world and finding out what keeps her coming back for more!

    I haven't seen anything quite like this before and so far, it looks very appealing. The cartoon-y effects are unique, but not out of place, the delivery is that nice mix of dead-pan and straight-faced and the concept has a lot of potential to make a great show.

    A great video and a great idea for a show. I think you guys summed everything about your project in a nutshell, and made it clear why people will want to watch it. I think it's really cool how your using the roleplaying as a way to examine the characters of the players, rather than just using the fact that they play RPGs as a joke in itself.

    Really love the focus on the art in this one. I think the way you're adding it to the "real world' is an eye catching way to help the visualize what is going on, and much more innovative then cutting to boring character drawn images all the time.

    Hey guys,
    As I know many of the people involved in this project. it is hard to say, I am currently pitching a very very similar project. ( http://m.imdb.com/video/wab/vi3922570265/ ) It has been a finished short that I have been pitching for a year and a half as a TV concept. We did not enter the coup because CBC owns all rights to the project in the fututre making it hard to keep the rights for to pitch to other broadcasters. Also we are trying to get traction for our show using film fest circut. I am just attempting to protect the work of the Advanced Wizards & Warriors team, myself and the 3 years of work dedicated to make Advanced Wizards & Warriors. Please see the ( https://m.facebook.com/advancedwizardsandwarriors?ref=bookmark ) Thanks, Aaron Merke

    Big fan of the show. One of my favourites on here. Love the videos. And I'm a big fan of the animation, but how awesome would it be if it went into full on animation during the D&D sequences, with moments of live action when there's interruptions from the RL, or just for some perspective. Obviously that would take a budget, but that's what the accelerator is for!

    I think the art work is amazing. It's smart, creative, and (I'm paraphrasing here, I'm sure) as you say "an extension of the characters." However, my qualm with the show is that the characters don't seem engaging to me, say like with Depflies. I would like to see a realness to the characters to contrast the art. Good luck.

Anyways this video gave a glimpse into the casts actual lives vs only in game stuff, I think a lot of people probably were curious about that. All we need now is a scene from one or two of there lives to give us the full idea. Anyway. GL HF ASL

    I agree, the hallmark of this series is the amazing visuals. Reminds me of an old YTV show called "Student Bodies". I also really liked how you introduced each character and the actors that play them. I'd like to know more about their in-game characters. I especially like how in the real-life portion of the show no one is sure of what the DM is up to, just like they wouldn't know in-game either.

    I like your video and the way you did that with the cartoons drawing and the real stuff. It also explained well your mission and show. Some people mentioned their Hype it event and some didn't. I am not sure why. But I do hope yours is a blast! Good luck to you four!

    Very different idea and I like it. Please don't take this the wrong way but the idea of these loser type characters trying to be winners through this game is great. I like it. Kudos and good luck.

    Interesting concept. How much does it revolve that isn't around the game?

    It varies from episode to episode. It all depends on the story that we're trying to tell that week and if the game adds anything.

    It's an interesting concept. Getting to know the characters and their backgrounds makes the show much more appealing. I just think that having it revolve around the role playing game really limits the story development, however, I could be very wrong.

    Love the concept. I find the illustrations really entertaining and like how they're almost like another character. I don't understand the game the characters are playing, but that's okay...still interesting!

    Great to hear more about the premise and I like what I hear! I would definitely check this out and like what you said below about every choice having subsequent consequences. Does that mean though that if I miss a week I'd be out of the loop or worse, kicked out of the game? ;)
    Killer job on the sell sheet too!
    Good luck this weekend and hopefully see you in the Top15

    I really like this submission, it would be great to know more about the characters lives and see how their struggles in the real world parallel their events in the game, and what they can learn from that. Very cool.

    Okay this is awesome and the art work is be-U-tiful! But you know what would be more awesome? If the Dungeons and Dragons fantasy world came to life or something like that! Basically, I'd rather actually play DnD than watch other people play it, so there's got to be something more than them sitting around a table playing DnD. Really curious about the full season arc!!!!! This has the potential to be epic. Please be epic.

    One of my faves. Christine kills it and as a fellow DnD patriot, I find they do it justice. The art is incredibly badass and the storyline is super funny.

    Still one of my favs moving through week 5. I like that you gave us some back story on some of the characters but I've love to know more about what brought them all together and what keeps them coming back to play each week. Folks who've never played RPGs might not get why the weekly meetups would continue so I look forward to seeing how your main character deals with this new-to-her world and finding out what keeps her coming back for more!

    One of the better clips this team has put together. I'm still wary of the reach that a D&D show has but kids these days are way more accepting then they used to be, so maybe. I like how this clip highlights the non-RPG plot potential. Having the game as a premise more than the focus strikes me as an ideal way to make this concept a show and not simply something that's worth a few laughs on YouTube.

    Ah Brian Fukushima does the art?! Great use of talent! I appreciated the summaries of each character, but I don't know who this can be a sitcom rather than just a webseries? How will your story ideas translate into 13 or 26 22-minute long episodes, and still keep things interesting for viewers?

    The Art style is interesting, but will it get in the way of the storytelling and characters? I'm drawn in by the premise more than the look. I like the idea of the art, but would you ever cut that, or is that what makes it unique?

    Good question Mark. The art is used exclusively while the players are "in-game." And when it is used, it's either because it helps to clarify action, communicate information, or because it's part of a joke. We would only use it if necessary. As you can see from the other comments in this thread, the visuals have been a great "hook" for getting people interested in the show. It would be difficult for us to abandon them completely. That being said, we certainly don't go looking for excuses to wedge them into scripts. I can easily imagine an episode where there is no art because the story simply didn't call for it.

    I'm really hoping this is a show about nerds playing D&D! I've been waiting for a show like that for quite a while now. Anyway, I think that this show will be... *rattle rattle* ... Awesome, and I think the humour is... *rattle rattle* ... Top notch. I'm looking forward to see more, and I don't need my dice to tell me that!
