You guys have all come here at an interesting time. A time when one could say we do need adventurers. Heroes even.

Overview Edit

Heroes and Halfwits is a bi-weekly web series show from Rooster Teeth in which members of the Achievement Hunter crew play Dungeons and Dragons, according to its official website.

It is a show that depicts five of their well-known personalities with Dungeon Master Frank going on an adventure in a session of Dungeons & Dragons. Sessions go live first on their website for First Members, later getting released publicly and then to the Achievement Hunter YouTube channel.

Synopsis Edit

Seasons 1-3 are set in a world with an ongoing war between the heroes' dwelling homeland (Einland) and another city (Jackalheart), the band of five are enlisted soldiers trained and being sailed over to help with the battle efforts. Tasked with infiltrating the city and eliminating the shapeshifter infestation therein, they are caught up in a mysterious incident that decimates the fleet with them having been thrown clear at the last second by their Battlemage superior. With a Featherfall spell cast upon them they land unharmed in the jungle nearby the opposing city and must go about their mission regardless. Unfortunately they're very good at getting sidetracked.

Season 4 is a complete Retool, trading the fantasy setting for sci-fi. It is set in a future Earth, with our heroes as students/faculty at a school for kids with genetic imbalances. The heroes are quickly pulled into an adventure to save the planet from an unknown group dabbling in illegal experiments.

TriviaEdit

  • Geoff estimates that this campaign will take ~18 months, possibly 2 years if "Ryan" continues to derail them with his shenanigans.
  • The campaign was originally supposed to be sci-fi but Matt and Burnie asked them to do Fantasy instead, because that’s what most people associate with Dungeons & Dragons. [citation needed]
  • Gus and Frank have been playing D&D together since their sophomore year of high school. Their Latin teacher introduced them to it.
  • Orma was originally created as a “revolving” character, meaning that a different guest would play her each session. Hence the memory loss and personality switch. However, the logistics were trickier than they were anticipating and Griffon got attached, so while someone else will play Orma every once in a while, Griffon appears more regularly than originally planned.
