Vin Diesel is a huge nerd, both literally and figuratively. The once (and future?) Riddick and star of the Fast & Furious franchise is famed for his love of Dungeons & Dragons. In fact, he even based his movie, The Last Witch Hunter, on a character he created for the game. And for all those Last Witch Hunter fans out there, he reprises the role of Kaulder in a game of D&D with Geek & Sundry on an epic quest filled with investigations, knocking, flaming swords, and various amounts of intrigue. The campaign is well-plotted and overseen by the excellent Dungeon Master, Matthew Mercer. Diesel is joined on his campaign to rid the land of an evil curse by Geek & Sundry cohorts Laura Bailey, Dan Casey, Jessica Chobot, and Travis Willingham. It’s a spirited and fun game and great look into how these sessions proceed for those unfamiliar with RPGs.
“D & Diesel,” as it’s called, runs about 30 minutes but is still a fun time for those who are interested in the new witch hunter class, want to know what it’s like to play a round of Dungeons & Dragons, or just like seeing the voice of Groot geek out. It’s an enjoyable way to learn about the game and the new class as well as to peek into the lives of assorted nerds as they get to save the land from a perilous source of rotten evil. And no, that’s not a reference to The Last Witch Hunter’s Rotten Tomatoes score. Well, it wasn’t supposed to be, anyway.
