The video above is from the web-series The Guild, about a group of online gamers—written for gamers, about gamers by a gamer. Created by and starring Felicia Day, it follows the Guild members’ lives online and offline. Episodes vary from 3-8 minutes in length, and since season 2, The Guild has been distributed by Xbox Live and Microsoft and sponsored by Sprint. You may have seen their previous music video, “Do you Wanna Date My Avatar?”
The characters who make up "The Knights of Good" are:
Codex – a cleric and healer whose costume is reminiscent of Princess Leia’s slave outfit mixed with a Renaissance lady
Vork – a fighter, dressed like an armor-clad Robin Hood
Bladezz – a rogue, dressed like a noble knight
Tinkerballa – a ranger, scantily clad like the heroines in Final Fantasy
Clara – a mage in blue and
Zaboo –a warlock in blue and red, both also looking a bit like some of our Final Fantasy costumes.
The show follows the life of Codex, the healer of The Knights of Good, who attempts to lead a normal life after one of her guildmates shows up on her doorstep.
Cast members Jeff Lewis (Vork) and Robin Thorsen (Clara) were recently interviewed on The Bob Bendick Podcast, a comedic chat show about making it in the entertainment industry, and mentioned the show’s reception at conventions.
Jeff said, “We go to conventions a lot and there, like Comic Con, Blizz Con ...gaming conventions, we’re very well known. The fans are very fervent.”
Robin said, “It’s very flattering when people come up to you and want to take a picture with you…. They’re amazing, and I appreciate it. It’s nice.”
