Knights of the Dinner Table, Live?


On Sunday, December 8, 2013 Jolly Blackburn did something that surprised the hell out of me: he announced that there would be a kickstarter for a live action Knights of the Dinner Table web series! Over the years the Knights have been featured in a number of live readings at various conventions and even a short-lived podcast.

The project will be headed by Ken Whitman, who was fantastic as Russ in the Brothers Barbarian webseries, and his D20 Entertainment production company. According to the Press Release the guys from Kenzer Company will have creative input and control over the project - which is a huge relief for me, and I'm sure for many fans of the Knights of the Dinner Table.

The project has an ambitious goal of $60,000, but with a 60 day timeline for the project's funding it seems that this could happen (at the time I'm writing this the project already has 42 backers for a total of $3,687). But where this project really becomes exciting is when we start looking at the stretch goals:
  • $90,000 - KODTLAS SCRIPT: Backers pledging $25 or more will receive PDF versions of the KODT Live Action Series script.
  • $100,000 - "I waste him with my crossbow":  A free MP3 of BOB saying "I waste him with my crossbow" for a phone ringtone, or any other thing you can use an MP3 for.
  • $110,000 - "Fireball coming online": A free MP3 of BRIAN saying "Fireball coming online" for a phone ringtone, or any other thing you can use an MP3 for.
  • $120,000 - SHORT MOVIE: We will add more characters and produce 60 minutes of live action footage. We will also include a few bloopers and a "Making Of" short film. 
  • $140,000 - "I want a big ass sword": A free MP3 of DAVE saying "I want a big ass sword" for a phone ringtone, or any other thing you can use an MP3 for.
  • $160,000 - "Animals": A free MP3 of SARA saying "Animals" for a phone ringtone, or any other thing you can use an MP3 for.
  • $180,000 - COMPLETE SET OF the KODT Live Action Series Comic Spectacular Spectacular:  Backers pledging $50 or more will receive a 36-page PDF containing one original strip using the series' actors, written by Jolly Blackburn.
  • $200,000 - "Because I'm the GM": A free MP3 of B.A. saying "Because I'm the GM" for a phone ringtone, or any other thing you can use an MP3 for.
  • $115,000 - "Firk Ding Blast!": A free MP3 of WEIRD PETE saying "Firk Ding Blast!"  for a phone ringtone, or any other thing you can use an MP3 for.
  • $230,000 - "Eeeep Eeep Eeep!": A free MP3 of SQUIRRELY saying "Eeeep Eeep Eeep!" for a phone ringtone, or any other thing you can use an MP3 for.
  • $250,000 - FEATURE LENGTH MOVIE: If we reach this level, we will produce a full-length 96 minute movie. There will be cameos from other KODT characters, and we will guarantee at least 20 minutes of CGI Squirrely & Weird Pete.
  • $260,000 - "Hoody-Hoo": A free MP3 of B.A., Bob, Brian, Sara and Dave saying "Hoody-Hoo" for a phone ringtone, or any other thing you can use an MP3 for.
  • $275,000 - MOVIE ADVENTURE SCENARIO:  Backers pledging $50 or more will receive a PDF copy of the Hackmaster gaming scenario run by B.A. Felton in the movie, written by B.A. Felton himself.
  • $310,000 - FEATURE LENGTH MOVIE & Web Series: If we reach this level, we will produce a full-length 96 minute movie AND 30 minutes of a web series. We will also make sure we get cameos from all the members of the Black Hand Society Group.
There is a large audience of rabid fans out there for the Knights of the Dinner Table and I can only imagine our (yes, I'm one of them) collective excitment at the prospect of a feature length movie. The project ends of February 5, 2014 and I'm in, are you?
