THE GAMERS: DORKNESS RISING
FREE TO WATCH: Struggling writer Lodge (Nathan Rice) isn't asking for much: he wants his gaming group - Gary (Christian Doyle), Cass (Brian S. Lewis), and Leo (Scott C. Brown) - 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 (Leo), wild sorceress (Gary), and cryptic monk (Cass) — Lodge allows Joanna (Carol Roscoe), Cass's 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 evil necromancer Mort Kemnon (Geoff Gibbs). Will their choices in the game save their friendships in real life...or will Mort Kemnon triumph unopposed?
