Oh I’m trying this. This is happening. Next party watch out.
One of many things Community did right with this episode was Jeff Winger. He is very clearly not the “type” to be playing Dungeons & Dragons. He doesn’t get fantasy tropes, he doesn’t care to remember the name of anything, but he doesn’t dismiss the game because of it. It would be really easy to have him be that character who is Too Cool For This Silly Game, but he isn’t. The way he engages with the game shows it’s not just a ridiculous, melodramatic fantasy narrative - it’s problem-solving. And even in a game he doesn’t understand, he will use the means available him to solve the issue at hand, just like Jeff Winger does every other time he’s trying to solve a problem at Greendale.
And I love that about this episode. It pulls characterization and conflict from an interwoven, dual narrative between the story in the game and at the table, where the characters’ enthusiasm and emotional investment in the game isn’t played off as the joke.
I just love this whole show. It is simply brilliant.
This was such a beautiful episode. I think it’s probably my favorite.
It was such a refreshingly respectful treatment of table top games in main stream media. The game is not the joke, the game is taken seriously and the jokes come from the character interactions within the game.

Lol, why are there two maids? Not that the house doesn’t need it. And what happened to that bed?? I swear that’s not where I put it! Karkat appears to be fine with it tho.

Welp. Good to know I’m not doing it wrong then.
“Blood is thicker than water”, when used in the context of family over friends, is in fact a wildly incorrect bastardisation.
The true, full quote is “The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb,” and refers to relationships forged by choice holding deeper meaning than those of mere biology.
THE MORE YOU FUCKING KNOW
Boy does that make a lot more sense.
i don’t know what i was expecting but it certainly wasn’t this guy and his moustache
