Week #4 Key It Roll For Damage

Roll For Damage is a comedy about five people who gather once a week to play a Dungeons and Dragons-esque pen-and-paper role-playing game. Their lives outside of the game are hilariously tumultuous and are often reflected in their “in-game” characters and scenarios. Not everyone understands fantasy role-playing, but with careful writing and a wicked art style, the in-game portions of the show come to life with clarity and intrigue.

Thanks Karin, my favourite thing about Poster A is that it highlights Christine. Sadly, there are not very many projects on Comedy Coup that have strong female characters (played by actual women, not dudes in wigs).

Optional Images

Christine - The Artist

Christine - The Artist

Christine is a talented artist and illustrator. She gained national recognition at the age of 22 and received benefactor funding to create art full-time. Unfortunately, her lack of output resulted in her funding drying up. Now she has her first real job in her adult life, working at a private art gallery.

She has never played a role-playing game before, so she often needs to be explained the rules, or reminded of what she can and can’t do. She is constantly surprised at the situations the in-game group find themselves in, at times the only one aware of the absurdity of it all.

Andrew - The Pressure Cooker

Andrew - The Pressure Cooker

Andrew works for for the City of Vancouver, specifically in Water Treatment and Supply. He’s a good guy at heart, but the pressure of being responsible for the drinking water of over two million people combined with his obsessive nature puts him in a constant state of being highly emotionally sensitive. When he has a chance to relax and decompress, he often ends up calling people to apologize for being a jerk to them or busting out his acoustic guitar. In-game he's a gold obsessed, scheming bard with an unsettling tendency to unleash havoc on large groups of non-player-characters.

Peter - The Machiavellian

Peter - The Machiavellian

No one is quite clear what 32-year-old Peter does for a living, but chances are it’s not legal. He seems to have the most money out of any of the characters, by far. However, he goes to great lengths to keep his wealth as hidden as possible. His clothes, car, home are all perfectly plain and unassuming. You’re never really sure what he’s thinking...

Peter is the group’s Dungeon Master. Mostly even-keeled, he comes alive with emotion when he is inhabiting non-player characters (NPCs). He takes the most pleasure in editorializing the action or setting scenes.

 Ivan – The Closet Romantic

Ivan – The Closet Romantic

Ivan doesn’t have any real friends, although he feels like he has plenty. He may not realize it, but he hasn’t had any good friends since, well, since Jennifer left him. Break ups are messy. Friends choose sides. And they all chose hers. He always seems to pursue women who are a) unavailable, b) unobtainable or c) complete (and obvious) disasters.

In-game, Ivan is a swashbuckling wizard with a romantic bent, who will always stand up for what’s right. Imagine Errol Flynn’s Robin Hood, but with the ability to shoot fireballs out of his hands.

Adam – The Secret Family Man

Adam – The Secret Family Man

Adam has a secret family in the Philippines (it's a long story). Unfortunately, they don't want anything to do with him. He's on a mission to earn their love and acceptance.

In-game Adam is a druid with a oneness-with-nature bent, searching for his long-lost father. He has no patience for the nitty-gritty particulars that can arise (buying gear, dividing up rations, etcetera). He acts impulsively and often drags the team into terrible situations. He gets hung up on father-son NPC pairings (for obvious reasons).

    I like Poster B. It expresses the show's distinctiveness, concepts, and potential to be a great show. It looks epic and creates excitement and intrigue for the next video.

    Both posters were solid. I went with A I like the way showing some reality and one of the characters all drawn upon. But both posters get your message across quite well. Looking forward to the next challenge and how you tackle it!

    Jeez guys, you don't use a d20 to roll for damage! You shouldn't be using a d20 in your logo. A d4 would be perfect! Though, a d12 would look more obvious.

    d20s are more iconic, a layperson will have zero idea what a d4 is unfortunately. can't please everybody

    Sounds like someone has never summoned a group of Vrocks to cast the Dance of Ruin.

    B works for me -- you get a sense that the characters are real people, with hugely imaginative inner worlds backstoping their day-to-day lives.

    I'm going to have to go with poster B. Someone has a great artistic talent and I find that it really brings out the concept in your show as seen in poster B. The art in poster A is great too as it relates nicely to your previous work, but I'm not sure how the background image there really fits with your concept.

    Thanks for the feedback Christine. Excellent comment as always. I'm beginning to think that maybe the photo in in the bg of Poster A should have been a more recognizable Vancouver landmark. Maybe the entire skyline... Thanks again!

    I'm obsessed with everything about your graphics. Amazing illustrations, love the use of colour, and your title art / logo is one of the best in the competition. Can't wait to see more!

    I picked option A as I liked the close up of the characters and I really like the background, which looks like a famous bridge in Vancouver BC. Congratulations on making the top 55.

    Thanks Karin, my favourite thing about Poster A is that it highlights Christine. Sadly, there are not very many projects on Comedy Coup that have strong female characters (played by actual women, not dudes in wigs).

    I like all the colors in your posters but I think they are a little busy. I loved your optional images and how you showcased each character and wrote a bit about them. Very effective strategy to show us more into the show with the use of posters.
