Struggling writer Lodge (Nathan Rice) isn't asking for much: he wants his gaming group to finish playtesting his table-top adventure, rather than killing, looting, and debauching his fantasy world. Desperate to save the integrity of his story from the whims of his players' crazy characters-a horny bard, wild sorceress, and cryptic monk-Lodge allows Joanna (Carol Roscoe), Cass's (Brian Lewis) ex-girlfriend, to join the game. With Joanna's help, the group's characters trek deep into the fantasy game world to retrieve the Mask of Death from the evil necromancer Mort Kemnon (Geoff Gibbs). Will their choices in the game save their friendships in real life . . . or will Mort Kemnon triumph unopposed?

Netflix Reviews:

—This is a sure cult classic for any D&D fan.

—This movie is a wonderful follow-up to the Dead Gentlemen's The Gamers, but it is NOT a sequel. It is a terrific, good-natured, and extremely funny satire of roleplaying games and gamers with, amazingly enough, an entertaining and occasionally touching story included. Not that you'll notice. If you're like me, you'll be laughing so hard you'll have to pause the movie. Often.

—It's the perfect movie for anyone who enjoys comedy as well as fantasy films. And, if you have a newbie gamer in your group, make them watch this before they start playing! It's a great introduction to role-playing games and gaming group dynamics in general. Full of fun with a few touching moments here and there, it's a great way to start any game night with a bunch of friends!

—Future classic. Most of the Dungeons & Dragons and live-action role-playing movies I've seen fundamentally don't work. That is, they don't really let us into this strange, insular world and, when they do, they don't convey the appeal. This sequel to The Gamers manifestly does and also makes us laugh -- typically via the hapless, Seth Rogen-like bard who keeps getting himself killed. I laughed throughout and enjoyed myself even when I wasn't laughing. (It is low-budget, but triumphantly low-budget.) And at the end, the pay-off for the gamers was also a pay-off for me.

Anyone who’s ever spent time around gamers – those folks who love their tabletop games, knows that there are certain archetypes involved. Not only in the characters that are played in the game, but in the characters that tend to show up with loaded [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
