What do you get when you get a bunch of guys from Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses to play ''DungeonsAndDragons'' with [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] as the Dungeon Master? Pure undiluted ''awesome''. The sessions were generally held every Sunday night and could be watched live on LordKaT's [[http://www.lordkat.com/live Web site]]. The old sessions can be watched on the site as well. [[http://www.lordkat.com/taxonomy/term/561/0 This is the link]], with the listing from Newest to Oldest (meaning the earliest recording is on page 3).

(EDIT: You can also click [[http://www.lordkat.com/wiki/index.php/Deathklok_Campaign#History here]] to follow this campaign’s sessions.)

The ''Dramatis Personae'':

* [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] as the '''Dungeon Master'''
* LordKat as '''Grae''' a Human Ranger
* [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe]] as '''Lord Commander Vane II''', a Tiefling Swordmage
* Y Ruler of Time as '''Viktor''', a Human Fighter (re-speced to Barbarian in December 2010)
* Skitch as '''Garrett''', a Half-Elf Bard
* Sean Fausz as '''Darstine''', a Dragonborn Rogue
* RolloT as '''Juliet''', a Human Druid multiclassed into Shaman (re-speced into the Essentials Druid in December 2010)
* IronLiz as '''Lilea''', an Elven Cleric
* [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] as '''Bayban''', a Human Paladin
* PawDugan as '''Andraste''', an Eladrin Cleric (former party member)

Unfortunately, based on RolloT's [[http://rollot.blogspot.com/2011/04/wyrmwick-log-session-6.html blog]], it seems that real life, and, sadly moreso, drama and personality clashes behind the scenes have killed the campaign. More's the pity. However, many of the players from this campaign continue to play together in the TabletopGame/WyrmwickCampaign. Iron Liz, Spoony and others from TGWTG and LordKat's stream also have started another campaign. Recent sessions of that campaign can be found on [[http://thefoundary.blogspot.com/ Iron Liz's blog]].

----
!! The campaign contains examples of:

* AnAxeToGrind: Viktor and Bayban both use axes.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny!: The game is played on Sundays, so on occasion the guys can get distracted by football. It probably doesn't help matters that most of them are part of a Fantasy Football league.
** With the end of the 2010 football season, [=LordKat=] has pitched the idea of moving the game to Wednesday (which was previously reserved for TGWTG's football podcast ''Turducken is Tasty''), which means things may get back on track.
* AuthorCatchphrase: Spoony is fond of having the monsters refer to the players as "pink meat".
* BadassBoast: Delivered by Bayban when a drunk spat on him and started badmouthing the gods, blaming them for the monsters:
-->'''Bayban:''' Excuse me sir, but if you think the monsters are coming, then you clearly are too drunk to see anything clearly, ''because the monster's right in front of you!'' [[PunctuatedForEmphasis So I suggest. You.]] '''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis RUN!]]'''
* BerserkButton: Don't make fun of Lord Vane's father.
** Spoony has several, including the recent Burger King jingle ("New breakfast, new breakfast"), SouljaBoy's "Anime" (which basically the entire group hates, though they will bring it up to mess with each other), or people in the chat acting like idiots and/or spouting off [[MemeticMutation memes]] like The Game. This also ties into his PapaBear attitude, as seen when he kicks people for making rude or insulting comments about Iron Liz because they don't like her punning.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Juliet, the hippy nature girl, threatening to torture a captured assassin to death if he doesn't tell them what they want to know. Even Victor was somewhat disturbed.
** Juliet also has a [[CrowningMomentofAwesome moment]] where she yells at the other party members for being selfish for not burying the dead and that if they want to continue without performing a proper burial, they will go on without her.
** Also to note, Garrett, having the highest diplomacy, and a power called "Words of Friendship", disemboweled a guard quite violently. Admittedly, that was under the control of the Scorpion Queen, but still... Disembowelment...
* BigBad: Several, so far. The Scorpion Queen, The Witch Queen, and Morgana. They don't get along well.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:Bursting into King Donovan's castle in order to save him and overthrow Talbot while being wanted would definitely qualify.]]
** This was the plan for Linkara's Character.
* BigNo: Done by Lord Vane when he learned that [[spoiler:his father has little chance of being resurrected]].
* BlackComedy: Elven [[Theatre/TheDiaryOfAnneFrank Anne Frank]].
** She failed her stealth check!
** Don't forget the Chris Benoit jokes before one of their games that had YRulerOfTime in tears from laughing.
* BlackComedyRape: The chatroom starts making rape jokes with disturbing rapidity and frequency.
* BloodyHilarious: [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe]] is endlessly pleased by graphic and epic death descriptions.
* [[CantHoldHisLiquor Can't Hold Her Liquor]]: Subverted with Juliet who stayed conscious after drinking liquor strong enough to knock out most men.
** Played straight with Viktor and Bayban
* CatchPhrase: Juliet started off with "Kra-KAW!" which eventually evolved into "GAGOOSH!"
* ChekhovsGunman: Alice, the apprentice to Amon-Dred, whom the party met when [[spoiler:they traveled back in time]]. She's apparently had visions of Garret, and when he first sees her he undergoes a minor FreakOut. The most prevalent EpilepticTree is that she's [[spoiler:connected to the Scorpion Queen, or is the past version of the Queen herself, since Garret saw her with a "demonic, scaly visage" as Spoony put it.]]
** Years later in a ''WebVideo/CounterMonkey'' video, Spoony revealed his plans for Alice, which still fell under this trope but {{Jossed}} the theory: [[spoiler:She was a [[HornyDevils succubus]] who was forced into service by Galandread and fell in LoveAtFirstSight with Garret, which would have lead to her [[BigDamnHeroes coming in and helping the party at a time of great need]].]]
* CharacterDevelopment: The death of Lord Vane I could seem harsh, but in a way it was a good thing, since Joe's early play style was very brash and self-centered, bordering on JerkAss (and Joe himself is definitely not a JerkAss). Vane dying because of this attitude showed how poorly it worked, so Vane II is still somewhat bull-headed, but much more intelligent and considerate towards the rest of the group.
* ChoiceOfTwoWeapons: Grae switches between a bow and axe ([[DualWielding or axes]]) as needed.
* ComplimentBackfire: When Joe triggers a trap that summons some monsters:
-->'''Spoony:''' That's Vane, more trouble than [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom Short Round]].\\
'''Joe:''' But just as lovable!\\
'''Spoony:''' Yeah.\\
'''Joe (realizing):''' Aw...
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: When trying to get information out of the [[{{Youkai}} Kenku]] assassin, the group suggests having Garret torture him by singing SouljaBoy's "Anime" (see BerserkButton, above).
* CrossPlayer: RolloT as Juliet (done well), Sean as Darstine (done badly)
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: Any spell from the Word of Morgana.
* DestinationDefenestration[=/=]DisneyVillainDeath: [[spoiler:Lord Talbot.]]
** Subverted when [[spoiler: Talbot makes a saving roll and instead hangs off the edge of the building.]] [[DoubleSubversion Double subverted]] when [[spoiler: he is attacked and knocked backward enough to finally fall.]]
* DeathTrap: Bayban and Garret got bloodied by exploding crystal pillars
* DistressedDamsel: King Donovan's daughter, in more ways than one.
* DoorToBefore: In the Black Library
* EnemyWithin: The Scorpion Queen, to Garret.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Alice.
* EvilChancellor: Talbot.
* {{Expy}}: In the 2/20 session, the guys run into a Halfling [[HonestJohnsDealership Honest John]] who talks about [[Literature/{{Discworld}} cutting his own throat for money]]...
* FailedASpotCheck: In the 7/12 session, Juliet asked where to find the Library of Logwyn...while standing inside it. Later on, Grae asked how to leave the town, only to be told there was pretty much just one road out, and they were standing on it; he hung his head in shame. (Both instances occurred because [=RolloT=] and [=LordKaT=] didn't hear Spoony saying the relevant information.)
* FailOSuckyname: Juliet's daily power: Fairy Fire. For a while, she was trying to get people to call it "Super Awesome Blood Death Murder Fire," but she now seems to have given up on that.
** When [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe]] first joined the campaign, he had difficulty deciding his character's name. It went from Jonah to Youst Kempfer to Matrix, until it was changed to Lord Youst Matrix Vane Kempfer. Joe instead chose Lord Vane.
** Skitch names this trope in response to Vane's warhorse, Lord Mane.
* FantasticRacism: Grae and Elves. Woo boy, Grae and Elves.
** Also, Halflings.
* FauxYay: Garret and Grae's response to being hit on by the king's jailbait daughter.
* FiveManBand
** TheHero: Garrett
** TheLancer: Grae
** TheSmartGuy: Juliet
** TheBigGuy: Viktor
** TheChick: Darstine
** SixthRanger: Lord Vane, Lilea, and Bayban
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Done to Garrett after he panics from seeing the dark void in the ruined tower.
* GladIThoughtOfIt: Princess Elena's fawning over Garret after the group defeats [[spoiler:Lord Talbot]] dips into this territory.
-->'''Viktor:''' What about me? I [[DestinationDefenestration push him out window]]!
-->'''Spoony (as Elena):''' And then Garret told the big Russian man to push him out the window!
-->'''Viktor:''' What?! Aww...
* GuestStarPartyMember: Andraste, essentially.
* GuileHero: Garret convincing Tamier to not only leave them all live, but also delay the attack on Sarmanath ''and'' let them go to search for the Orb of Galendread unattended.
* HonorBeforeReason: [[spoiler:Tamier tells the party that Morgana offered mercy if he sided with her against the Witch Queen, but he refused. It ended up costing him his life.]]
** When the group comes upon some High Elves slaughtering the inhabitants of a farm, Lilea runs up and starts [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech chewing them out]]; at the very least, though, she split off from the rest of the group beforehand so she didn't attract attention their way.
* HouseRules: Spoony has one of these where player's don't go up to 0 before healing from negative HP.
* InfantImmortality: Averted. BlackComedy ensues when Grae assumes that this is the case upon finding a massacre, and telling Juliet to go comfort the children. Upon being told that the only survivors were in their forties, he responds that "well, they can just suck it up then."
* {{Jerkass}}: Lord Vane stomping through Morwaytha's turnip patch.
** The original Vane tended to be brash, arrogant, deaf to reason, and fixated on being the leader and conquering hero. [[BlackComedy A half-dozen spears to the gut quickly disabused Joe of this attitude]].
* KickTheDog: According to a couple of offhand-remarks made on Lordkat's stream, Grae hates elves so much because they killed his dog "Pongo". And then raped it. And then set it on fire. It is entirely possible that this is actually his canonical backstory.
* KilledOffForReal: In this setting, the gods are either dead or vanished, so TheMagicGoesAway is somewhat in effect; in particular, resurrection spells are treated as rare and mythical. Too bad for Lord Vane Senior...
* KillItWithFire: Attempted during the Throne Room fight, using a burning mattress; it did not work out quite as well as the party had hoped.
* KillItWithIce: Two of Bayban's abilities invoke this trope.
* KillSteal: Spawned its very own MemeticMutation..
** [[http://angryjoeshow.com/2010/08/the-dd-freakout/ Now in animated form]].
* KleptomaniacHero: After engaging in a chess themed puzzle involving shaking the hand of a king piece, our heroes start contemplating to steal the sword and crown of the king. They successfuly stole a +1 Luck Blade as well as the crown.
* LightningCanDoAnything: When faced with a door, their greatest challenge yet, [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe]] comes up with an ingenious solution: Hit the door with lightning. It didn't work.
* LoadBearingBoss: Morgana lich
* MissingEpisode: LordKat did not record the first few sessions, so they are lost to people coming into the campaign late.
** [[http://rollot.blogspot.com/2010/08/d-recap-sessions-1-3.html RolloT was nice enough to recap them]].
** Unfortunately, Ustream seems to be losing several of the videos, in particular the epic Throne Room fight.
* MistakenForGay: Happens to Lord Vane II once
* MookPromotion: Subverted with Bob the Minion.
* MundaneUtility: Averted when the group absolutely refused to let Joe use his Daily Power on a particularly stubborn door. Played straight when Juliet used her Grasping Tide power to put out a burning farmstead.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Grae seems fond of advising that the party "just kill everyone [they] meet" (but especially Elves and Halflings).
* MythologyGag: "Fuck you and your clown shoes religion," which is a reference to a campaign [=LordKat=] DM'd which included a cleric affectionally named [[ChristopherWalken Brother Walken]], so named because [=LordKaT=]'s New York accent was exaggerated while voicing the character.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Galendread, Morgana
* NeverFoundTheBody: Double subverted with [[spoiler:Lord Talbot]]. They ''did'' find the body, and in fact had it in Sarmanath's morgue...but then somebody stole it during the night.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler: The party travels across the world, outsmarts an army, and defeats a great demon only to wind up enabling Morgana to snatch the artifact of soul stealing power that they were questing for while they were distracted. Now the reborn demi-lich has taken control of one of their party members, her powerful book of spells, and an artifact that can devastate armies. Whoops.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler: Tamier is so blindly fixated on getting the Word of Morgana to the Witch Queen that he screws himself over in a big way. Not only does he delay the attack on Sarmanath, not only does he release the captive heroes to let them look for an cure for Garret and Darstine's respective curses, but he insists on taking his entire army with the party, a journey through scorching hot plains that destroys a sizable chunk of his force as the soldiers die from exhaustion and heatstroke and the Warforged bog down in the arid land. And then after all that, he let the party go into a castle to find the cure with no fixed time table for their return. Almost makes you wish you could be there when he tells the Witch Queen the "good" news...]]
** Unfortunately, that last wish will never come to pass: [[spoiler:Tamier was killed by Morgana-in-Darstine in the 12/19 session.]]
* TheNicknamer: Grae.
* NotHimself: Garrett when he is supposedly possessed by the Scorpion Queen.
* OhCrap:
-->'''Natiri:''' Don't you understand? That book ''is'' Morgana! She has bound her soul within its pages! That book is her phylactery!
-->'''Garrett:''' I under--
-->''[[{{Beat}} (pause)]]''
-->'''Grae:''' ''(nonplussed)'' Ah.
-->'''Juliet:''' [[ThisIsGonnaSuck FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!!!]]
* OverUsedRunningGag: [=RolloT=]'s references to ''{{LOST}}'', especially because everyone else in the group hated (or is indifferent towards) the show.
* PungeonMaster: Lilea.
** Oh Jesus yes.
* PutOnABus: Andraste, the group's cleric, after his player (Paw) dropped out of the game.
** Unfortunately, this looks to be happening more, with Angry Joe now being too busy to play due to running Website/BlisteredThumbs, Sean having dropped out for his own reasons, and perhaps most tragically with RolloT, who has decided to leave due to falling victim to unseen drama and troubles. Le sigh.
* RegentForLife: Attempted by Talbot.
* {{Retcon}}: How Vane II joined the party. Spoony's acknowledgement of this serves as the quote on the main article.
* RunningGag: [[RunningGag/SpoonysCampaign Several]].
* ScheduleSlip: Given that the group consists of nine people who live all across the US and have ''very'' busy lives (holding down jobs ''and'' contributing regularly to TGWTG), it's perfectly understandable - but still sad.
* SeriousBusiness: Before the 11/28 session, someone in the chat said sucked and '''everyone''', player and chat member, started calling for blood.
* ShoutOut: [[ShoutOut/SpoonysCampaign Several.]]
* ShutUpHannibal: The party didn't even give [[spoiler:Talbot]] the chance to say anything when they confronted him; they just [[DestinationDefenestration threw his ass out the window]].
* ASimplePlan: Vane's plan to steal gold from a drug dealer, which ended with Juliet passed out drunk in a tavern, Viktor getting pickpocketed, and the rest of the party ambushed by halflings.
* SmugSnake: Talbot.
** Lord Esgalion was kind of a sly one as well. His former squire Tamier seems to shaping up into this, too.
*** [[spoiler:Or was, until he got killed by Morgana.]]
* SophisticatedAsHell: At the start of the 9/12 session, Joe and [=RolloT=] are discussing [[ToiletHumor poop]]. After Joe says that he hopes Heaven is like the feeling you get after taking an epic dump, and Rollo insisting that this is all in-character, Spoony responds with this:
-->'''Spoony:''' Lord Vane's all, "I know not if there are gods or demons. I know not where one goes when one dies. But if there is indeed a Valhalla, I hope it to be like the feeling that one gets after taking an epic poo."
* SorryImGay: When [[{{Jailbait}} Princess Elena]] starts falling for Garret, Grae covers for him by kissing him on the cheek and calling him "honey". (Of course, when they speak with the Princess after [[spoiler:killing Talbot]], she's still fawning over Garret, so perhaps it didn't take.)
* StopOrIShootMyself: During the final showdown with [[spoiler:Lord Talbot]], he holds Princess Elena at knifepoint, and Spoony (in a slip of the tongue) says "he has a knife at his throat". This lead to the group wondering if he was doing this, which they said would have been kinda cool.
* [[spoiler:TimeTravel]]: The players discover that this happened to them in the 11/28 game. Grae may have royally screwed up by [[spoiler:bringing Alice (see ChekhovsGunman above) back with them]].
* TokenEvilTeammate: Grae, who has been affectionately nicknamed "Elven Hitler."
** Maybe not, though. When [=LordKaT=] said that he had Grae as evil, Spoony remarked that he wasn't sure an evil teammate was acceptable, meaning Grae may just be an AntiHero.
*** [[spoiler:Darstine-Morgana, though she's not really a teammate]] as of 12/19.
* TomeOfEldritchLore: The Word Of Morgana.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Inverted. For a while, Angry Joe didn't realize Darstine was female. [[{{Squick}} He then started to ask about Darstine's dragon-breasts.]]
* UpToEleven: Lord Vane II is already a LargeHam by default, but it gets turned UpToEleven when others control him in Joe's absence. It's gotten to the point where Joe said maybe he should start playing Vane the way everyone else plays him.
-->'''Spoony (as Vane II):''' We're wasting time! I can kill with lightning from my hands!
* WeHardlyKnewYe: John and Sayid. It's a shame, because Sayid apparently had an interesting backstory.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: We may never know what happened to that Elite Guard who was disarmed and left in the wilderness at the end of [[spoiler: the second throne room fight.]]
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: [[spoiler:Darstine's curse from the Word of Morgana gives her access to rituals and magics far greater than any her allies could cast, but every spell used causes a piece of her mind to be lost to Morgana. Might cross into BlessedWithSuck.]]
** [[spoiler:Given that as of the 12/19 session, Morgana has completely taken over Darstine, and has started turning Darstine into a lich, the effects are *FAR* too negative to come under the CursedWithAwesome category.]]
* WorldOfHam: With Spoony's [=DMing=], this is par the course.
** And the game being played by people who all have being GenreSavvy as their job doesn't help the Hammyness either.
* YouAllMeetInAnInn: Played straight. As mentioned by [[http://rollot.blogspot.com/2010/08/d-recap-sessions-1-3.html RolloT in his sessions 1-3 recap:]]
-->''"So our game began with our characters outside of the Kingdom of Sarmanath for one reason or another... Anyway, our group entered a tavern in town so we could acquaint ourselves with one another."''
* YouHaveToBurnTheWeb: Played straight when the party opens a door to reveal a [[CobwebJungle room full of cobwebs]] with a [[GigglingVillain creepy giggling]] in the distance. Grae, without a moment of hesitation, throws a [[KillItWithFire flaming bedroll]] into the room to clear it out and take out the monsters. [[spoiler: Unfortunately for the party, [[OhCrap said monsters can teleport.]]]]
