Read a recent interview from Geek Pittsburgh about Knights of the Arcade. Here’s an excerpt:

“I’m very aware that we ‘geeks’ can be a critical bunch, so there’s definitely part of me that’s worried that D&D fans will nit-pick over my selective application of the rules,” Betzner confides. “Most importantly this is a comedy show, and the least funny thing that can happen is to grind everything to a halt to scour through rule books for ten minutes to figure out how fast an encumbered gnome can move through tall grass. I hope that the audience can accept that we’re taking some short cuts to make the show focused and funny. This whole thing is, on some level, an experiment—can D&D be a spectator sport? I’m confident that it will work and be really fun, and hope that fans of the game enjoy seeing some really fun and talented people build a story using a game they love.”
