I thought I would throw up some more screen-shots from the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon along with some general observations. Sorry — no more nude shots.
No. 1: While watching an episode tonight it struck me that Venger really has strong shades of David Warner from Time Bandits.
No. 2: Many elements in the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon are patterned directly after Star Wars. Dungeon Master is a Yoda-clone (he even says lines in a Yoda-like cadence sometimes) and the score (though exceedingly good) owes more than a nod to John Williams. The one thing that the cartoon really didn’t need to bite off was Lucas’s baser marketing instincts and those loveable Ewoks. Regardless of how bad I wanted to be an Ewok every Halloween from ages 7–12, the “Cloud Bears” are totally uncalled for. It does occur to me though that the Cloud Bears may have not been Ewok copies, but Care Bear or Shirt Tails knockoffs.
No. 3: Finally here is a snap of a bona-fide water clock. If you look real close you can see a drop of water about to fall. I’m really impressed by this. Wizards of the Coast or whoever owns D&D ought to feature this picture in one of the handbooks. I never knew what one looked like until I saw the cartoon. And that really would have helped me in gameplay, because water clocks were one of the more pricey things you could buy, so I’d always try to own like 3 of those suckers, even though there was no way I could have carried even one along with my 20,000 GP, 50,000 SP and 342,493,835 CP.
