My eyes, my ears, my head....there's nothing left to do, but commit horrible suicide after this. I feel like vomiting.

OMG...when did you guys pilfer my history? I think I GM'd that game...

! I love this show, this episode is alright I guess, episodes 2-8/Christmas episode were much funnier, but it still was 10 Times funnier than the original episode one, I was Cracking my head of the whole way through!

Annoying at times, but overall it was pretty funny. I'll be watching any future installments. But why have the place callers not been banned?

hahahaha I laughed my ass off. It is literally what happened to me when some friends wanted to play RIFTS . Can't wait for more.

Unforgotten Realms clearly has a devoted fan base who have joined the series at its new home at The Escapist. It'd be pretty damn rude to ban them all wholesale just for stopping by and saying hello. We can make an exception to the rules in a case like this. That's the great thing about rules; if you don't follow them blindly, they can actually be inspiring, rather than soul crushing.

And on that note: Welcome fans of Unforgotten Realms. I hope you enjoy our forums. Also, we typically ban folks for posting "FIRST!1!!!!" comments. Keep that in mind.

I love UR so I guess that your website is now the best on the interwebs... all you need now is free porn ^_-

And is UR going to be in those big fancy boxes like ZP and DE-REZ?

It sure was funny. But seriously. Not as funny as the original ones :( .. And whats up with the consant weirdo background music that does not fit to the situations? :/

Edit: By the way, the originals can be found at: http://www.newgrounds.com/collection/unforgottenrealms

Good luck with the series Rob, I'm sure it will be a big success.

woot! finally rob is gettin payed for his great work :D

Great Series!
Unforgotten Realms FOREVER.

Unfortunately, I am having some trouble viewing it, as it doesn't seem to be streaming, if I had to hazard a guess, because the white bar at the bottom of the viewer stays the same size: tiny.

Just finished watching the latest ZP, so that runs fine. Different providers? Oh well, would have liked to see how this went, enjoyed watching the run of the previous series on NG (Newgrounds) and have been trying to keep appraised of the progress towards release. Was a pleasant surprise to see Escapist + UR, very cool, just too bad for me I guess.

Will check back and see if I get to watch it another time. :)

I liked it, you guys have a lot of potential. It was ok, but you redeemed yourselves at 7:00 (when it started to get a little more original and it wasn't just arguing about the rules).

Watched the "old series", it was great.

THIS ONE IS FUCKING A! CHEERS!

Wow. That was pretty amazing. I made an account just to comment on it. I loved it. I was just made of pure awesomeness, and is a funny mockery of how Role-playing games sometimes actually turn out. Because I've played Dnd before with friends, one was like super serious like Mike, and another was a goof off like Rob. It actually sorta looked something like the cartoon. I'll say I really enjoyed this and hope we get more and it gets more awesome!

Apparently you can torquemada something.

Oh good! Its working for me now, and I am sure glad it is! Nice episode, I hope the next one has some more action :)

Put it in the car.

High hopes for the series, but where's the fullscreen switch on the player?

My resposne after watching this was: Ehhhh...
I've seen much better stuff in this genre. Take "DM of the Rings" for example. Now THAT was entertainment. This is too childish, overbearing, dull and I can't decide whether those cheap, clichéd punchlines are intentionally this stupid or not. No matter, they are not funny either way...

Don't get me wrong, it's a good idea, but I cannot seem to grasp that ROFL fun everybody is talking about. Maybe I'm too old for this, since I'm 23. I just go back to watch Zero Punctuation...

Just want to see more and i feel its good that the escapist now has 2 shows worth watching. (and I know this is still a few months from now but i hope you get renued for a third and forth season)

Playbahnosh:

Dude, I'm 1.5 times your age and I still find it squeamishly funny, perhaps because I GM'd for someone like that.

"So you've got 18 in ALL of your stats?"

_Nocturnal:

Bad news: There isn't one.

Good news: we're coding our own player now, and it will include a fullscreen switch.

Sorry about the grief in the short term. We're switching over to a new service and the player they provided us is a bit lacking. New player soon. Promise.

very nice me likes it, love the animation and the voice acting, however sometimes i find it hard to make out what the wizard guy is saying, he talks like he has a mouth full of cotton balls.

SILENCE you out-of-control LUMBERJACK!!

Its good to see the escapist is spending some time finding new sereies insted of just mucking off of Yatzee forever.

good remake of the char.!

Virgil:
Kudos! That was fantastic. I'm going to watch these before they go live from now on ;)

show off.
I will make sure to catch this weekly it actually seems quite good.

Glad to know more episodes will finaly be coming out soon,

Nice to see this up on the site. The remake is awesome.

Can we at least have some constructive criticism instead of "OH gawd dis is shit phuck j00 n00bs m3 go to Zp now!" Seriously guys this is supposed to be an intelligent website so give constructive criticism don't just shit your half baked attempts at sounding somewhat like the malevolent assholes you aspire to be.

Sorry, you lost me at the underlined sections.

Okay, honest feedback, since you guys seem to be getting upset with my gut instinct reaction reply.

Here we go then...

- Not being able to find like-minded gamers is so 1980s, since you can make things happen online, if nothing else works. Maybe this joke worked fifteen years ago, but I find it to be old

- Commentary voice is annoying

- I found these gamer / jock archetypes frustrating and boring twenty years ago. Things haven't changed

- Making fun of a belowed hobby that has kept me sane and socially active for 20+ years. Yeah, good way to start.

- DMPC...good God. I thought we killed these things a decade ago?

- Shouting. It hurts my ears if I turn the sound on, but luckily the mute button is conveniently located in the media player

- Rules Lawering...like I need to be reminded of everything that is wrong with the game that I started out with

- The Jock's attitude towards the game is nostalgic to me. I suppose this could be called a good thing, if it didn't bring up any negative connotations like the dozens of guys who only played for a single session and never came back

- * yawn * So, we get to the next all-time favorite right after DMPCs: forcing a PC into taking an action(s) the player is not comfortable with

- The music? For some reason I don't usually listen to any background musics, so it must have been below painfully bad or else I would have complained about it

Okay, so to sum it all up: none of the jokes struck me as funny or entertaining. What they did do was remind me of a lot of frustrating / stupid things that life served up a long time ago.

I trust these comments have been to everyone's satisfaction.

Fantastic.

My first DND sesh i did a NPC voice, i didnt understand >.<!

laughed my dice off.
xo

This kicks ass!

Well, most of the jokes were rather weak (see the long post above this one), but in general it felt fun. I just hope the writing of the script will improve over the next segments. I'm keeping an eye on this!
