Description

You enter a tavern. You see a group of comedian questers. What do you do? A Dungeons-and-Dragons-style, interactive, role-playing game comedy experience where the audience gets to play God and make the decisions about what the characters can and can’t do. Suitable for the experts, the novices and the uninitiated but curious. No two quests are alike; a unique mini-adventure with Game Master Sasha Ellen. 'Always engaging' (Chortle.co.uk). **** (TheMumble.net). Material featured on BBC Radio 4.

Being apart of this show was truly fun and enjoyable. Watching the world that Sasha (Game master) described was well done, allowing me to visualise the characters, NPC's and buildings within the fantasy world. The two players that got involved were just as ready to help the audience visualise the world as well as feel included in the process through general conversation and the clever use of a voting system to help give guidance to the characters likelihood to achieve something within the world. The improvised music that was performed was also hilarious with a bit of Billy Joel improvisation where the audience were wanting to join in whenever they could. Overall, a truly fun experience for RPG lovers as well as those looking for a new experience. Would highly recommend joining the adventurers with their future quests!
