Wil Wheaton Is Putting Your Money Where His Mouth Is With New RPG Series
Details Revealed on the Highly Anticipated Record Breaking
Crowd Funded RPG Show From Wil Wheaton and Geek & Sundry
April 2, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA – Just one year ago, Wil Wheaton and the team at Geek & Sundry shattered the record for most money raised for a web series with the promise of a TableTop RPG spinoff. The new 10-episode series will premiere Tuesday, June 2, exclusively on www.GeekandSundry.com and will feature an all-star cast including Hank Green (VlogBrothers), Laura Bailey (Avengers Assemble), Alison Haislip (Attack of the Show), and Yuri Lowenthal (Ben 10, Big Hero 6).
“I’m going to take viewers on an epic adventure with phenomenal players through a world that is unlike any they have ever seen before,” says Wil Wheaton, “I’ve been privileged to work with some talented writers and designers, and am so lucky to have an amazing cast and crew to help me bring this to life.”
Without further ado…after a yearlong drumroll…the name of the show is…
Titansgrave: The Ashes of Valkana
The game will be played using Fantasy AGE, the latest iteration of the Adventure Game Engine by Green Ronin Publishing. Green Ronin will publish a Titansgrave: Ashes of Valkana world and adventure book in conjunction with Fantasy AGE this summer. Gamers will be able to play through the adventures seen on the show and experience the world of Valkana for themselves.
The series will feature live-action game play augmented by animation as the audience follows the weekly journey of the adventurers through this original world.
