The Gamers: Dorkness Rising spawns a Pathfinder Kickstarter


The Gamers is a basement budget film, a friendly spoof, on gaming from Matt Vancil and Dead Gentlemen Productions. The Gamers: Dorkness Rising is a sequel, set in the same gaming world, but focuses on a different playing group.

So, what’s Gamers: Dorkness Rising like? Wikipedia notes, in the style section, that Gary plays a scantily dressed female character called Luster. The problem is that Gary often forgets his character is a female and when this happens, in the movie, his character becomes a bloke in a blonde wig, only to be replaced by the actress once Gary remembers.

In 2008 Paizo were selling (and had exclusive rights!) The Gamers: Dorkness Rising at Gen Con.

Here’s a clip:

Skip forward to this month and over on Kickstarter where we find Zombie Orpheus raising funds for a Pathfinder scenario. The Mask of Death is a quest for five 9th level Pathfinder characters.

Those characters can be those from Dorkness Rising or your own. It’s a printed product, 48-pages, colour cover and black-and-white interior. There will also be a PDF version which will be full colour.

This project will fund. At the time of blogging; The Mask of Death asks for $4,000 and has raised over $6,000. There’s nearly two weeks to go and smallish pledges give you a copy of the adventure.
