Mists of Akuma: A D&D Session with Mike Myler

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuifVZEJXTU

We finally did it… we played Dungeons & Dragons with Mike Myler and we even streamed it on Twitch.tv!

Mike and Savannah were kind enough to put up with us n00bs (myself and Gizzy B were super n00bs. I think Fortune Cookie knew what she was doing in general, ha!) and let us preview their new project, Mists of Akuma. Watch our hilarious campaign and we will also break down the audio into three parts soon for those who prefer to listen via the podcast.

Enjoy. I’m not sorry that I enjoyed shanking thugs a lot… as my character, of course.

The series begins with a brief look into Hippolyta’s past and the creation of Themyscira. There are even pages dedicated to Diana’s “birth.” The trailer indicates that the book will end with Diana as an adult and taking on the superhero mantle (watch the video below).

Either way, it doesn’t take away from how much this series affected me when I was growing up. It was a beautiful thing to see this gorgeous, badass warrior on television — plus, having the show revolve around her friendship with another woman, Gabrielle. Although I full support the Xena x Gabrielle pairing, it is also refreshing to be able to look back and pinpoint a show that explores the relationship between two women in a setting that doesn’t involve the usual “silly, girls” scenarios.

I can go on and on about this show, but we’re here to look at pretty fanart. I present to you, this week’s Fanart GLEE!
