Today's post is about a highly successful web series called The Guild, which follows a group of MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game, similar in vein to World of Warcraft) players and how their interactions in game begin to effect their real life counterparts. The series was created by and stars Felica Day (who has also starred in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-Long). The rest of the guild consists of leader Vork (Jeff Lewis) a loner with OCD, single mother Clara (Robin Thorsen), high strung Tinkerballa (Amy Okuda), self centred rogue Bladezz (Vincent Caso) and mage Zaboo (Sandeep Parikh) who has an unhealthy obsession with Codex.
The Guild is a fantastic comment on MMORPG players and about geeks in general, and the beauty of this is that you don't have to be a gamer to find it funny. The show has aired 3 seasons, has a graphic novel released by Dark Horse Comics and also has a music video (see below). I can't recommend this show enough, just head on over to watchtheguild.com or find all the episodes on YouTube.
Finally, in a rather shameless piece of traffic boosting, here's a sexy picture of Felicia Day:
