Tales From The Table is a web series hosted by The Escapist about the adventures of a Dungeons & Dragons gaming group and their characters. Runs off of Rule of Funny, and is also character-driven.

It can be found here.

This series contains examples of:

  • Critical Failure: Falcore tries to run superfast to dry off his clothes, and Ceredywn tries to cast a heating spell to do the same...and they both roll 1s.
  • Fandom Rivalry: In-universe; Rufus runs afoul of a group of LARPers. They settle the dispute by playing Realm Ball.
  • Foreshadowing: In the very first episode, The DM says "Oh please, there are no robots in fantasy adventures." Might also double as him being a Straw Hypocrite.
  • It's Up to You: The other players beg Ceredwyn to kill Cryson for them as they die.
  • No Name Given: The characters are named, but the players and dungeon master aren't.
  • Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies: The show ends with this, though not comically. The DM gets fed up and takes out his anger on the players, eventually causing them to all die.
  • Shout-Out: The Googolplex Gauntlet is one to the Infinity Gauntlet.
  • The Unreveal: Ceredwyn almost reveals her real name, but is cut off by her phone.
  • Women Are Wiser: Ceredwyn's the only one to resist Cryson's brainwashing. By the time the others snap out of it they're dying.

  • Wretched Hive: "Kreller's Keep is a hive for scum and villainy, known across the land for its brave adventurers and busty wenches."
