Did You Know?


In the episode, the study group runs through a campaign called Caverns of Draconis. In reality, it is not an actual trademarked D and D story. However, several enthusiasts on the website Reddit have plotted out a campaign for players to use if they wish. See more »


On the game saving roll, the dice shows a 19. However, the surrounding numbers correspond to those next to a 15 on most 20 sided dice, meaning the 19 was probably added in post. See more »


Annie Edison: Okay, come on, can we just do this? Hi, hello, I am Hector The Well Endowed. You've got a bunch of pegasi, let's make a deal.
Abed Nadir: What kind of deal?
Annie Edison: All right. I take her by the hand and lead her to the stable. I light a candle and rip off a piece of my tunic which I fashion into a blindfold.
Abed Nadir: Oh, Hector, but I don't know if I...
Annie Edison: Shhh, shhh. I place it gently over the elf maiden's eyes...

I was never a dungeons and dragons fan...never actually played a game, nor

Had any desire to. But this episode kicks a**. Love how Community uses the other actors sporadically throughout the seasons. The character is very likeable in this. I love vengeful Pierce...and Chang is just ridiculous. Abed is a great dungeon master (I guess). The story and execution are great, and the dialogue is funny. An episode that moves quickly. I wish this one was more than just 22 minutes. I know they did another D&D episode, but the "feel" of this one was so great, I'm sure they left a lot that would have been just as if not better.

It is episodes like this that really made Community a show all its own. Seinfeld had the Puffy Shirt and the Yada Yada. Community has the D&D one, the Law and Order one, the Goodfellas one, etc. No other show/creator could or would do anything like this...and do it this well.
