The Guild at Dragon*Con

The GuildThere aren’t many TV shows about people who play MMOs, and usually when those shows have characters that do, we all cringe when they blurt out nonsensical dialog clearly written by someone who hasn’t spent a single minute in a virtual world. But that’s what makes The Guild so different. In addition to being hilarious, the show is also written by one of us. Now wrapping up a 5th successful season, The Guild is a bona fide hit and Internet sensation. Creator and star of the show Felicia Day (Codex) came to Dragon*Con two years ago, and last year we were graced with the presence of Jeff Lewis (Vork) and Sandeep Parikh (Zaboo). This year Felicia Day returns and is joined by Robin Thorsen (Clara), Amy Okuda (Tinkerballa) and Wil Wheaton (Fawkes).

We’ll be doing two The Guild Q&A sessions with the cast this year. The first is on Friday at 1 PM in the Grand Ballroom of the Sheraton hotel, with Robin, Amy and Wil doing the question answering. Saturday’s 2:30 PM session, also in the Grand Ballroom, will feature Robin, Amy and Felicia.

On Sunday, in the Atlanta Ballroom room, starting at 10 PM and going until we are finished (and then maybe starting over again from the beginning), we’ll be screening entire seasons of The Guild in our Watch The Guild Marathon. Come and see them again, or see what you’ve been missing as we watch Cyd Sherman and the Knights of Good deal with life both in and out of game.
