Grant Ellis joins me this week and talks about his efforts to create engaging tabletop roleplaying game live shows. He discusses his background in the creative arts and how that translates into designing and producing roleplaying game content. He details the variety of ways that tabletop games such as Dungeons & Dragons can be played and consumed, and specify addresses the differences between playing in a game versus watching a session of a game being played.
The impetus for Grant and I recording was our shared love of the 2001 film, A Knight’s Tale – a movie we both feel is sorely underrated! We lavish praise on A Knight’s Tale and explain why the movie resonated with us in the first place and why the movie persists in our minds. We talk about the loaded cast, which features actors that would later go on to be prominent players in major television and movie franchises such as Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Breaking Bad, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Oh, and a young man by the name of Heath Ledger is also in the movie and radiates star power and charm.
A Knight’s Tale is wonderful, and Grant and I are getting in early on the eventually 20th Anniversary celebration that will certainly commence in 2021! This was a fun episode to record!
