Dungeons and Dragons lets your most creative friends come up with amazing ways to send you on adventures. Sometimes dungeon masters take the story far enough that it actually draws out a real emotional response from the players. People think a lot about fantasy worlds, like how this guy proposes that wizards are a bunch of magic snobs or this thing about dwarves having intelligent super beards.
Need a little inspiration for your next campaign? Missing the days when you could freely get together with your fellow nerds for some roleplay? These Dungeons and Dragons memes may not write your backstory or fill your gaming void, but we're willing to bet they'll amuse when you can't log on to Roll20.
What up, nerds?! If you're anything like us and are spending more time working and "adulting" than having Dungeons & Dragons style fun, these memes are for you. While they're no substitution for the hilarity and competition, they'll have to suffice during these bleak times.
You know what's better than thinking about Dungeons & Dragons? Perusing memes about Dungeons & Dragons. While quarantine might be stopping you from seeing your crew IRL, you can still enjoy content related to your intensely nerdy yet gratifying past time.
We know y'all nerds love it when we share super dank Dungeons & Dragons memes, and today we've got a whole lot more of 'em for you. Whether you're a Paladin or a horny Bard, or even the DM, these memes are sure to make you chuckle.
We'd always thought Dungeons & Dragons was a super niche interest, one with a small following. Holy crap, we were so wrong. As we'e gotten older it's become clear that way more people were playing than we thought. Which definitely accounts for the insane amount of D&D memes we've been seeing on the internet. It only makes sense that we'd slap a bunch of 'em together for your perusal.
The announcement signals the resolution of a rights-holders lawsuit between Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast LLC and Sweetpea Entertainment, each of which will be involved in the project. What it does not signal: any sort of guarantee that a Dungeons & Dragons movie will actually get made.
Warner Bros. has had enormous success with the fantasy genre, through franchises like Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings — but those were literary adaptations with rabid, built in followings and established characters. Dungeons & Dragons, first published in 1974, went on to become the world's most popular role-playing game — but the cultural relevance of real-world RPGs went into staggering decline with the rise of video- and massively multiplayer online games.
You might remember that they tried this back in 2000 with a weird, lame movie of a thing with Thora Birch, Jeremy Irons and Marlon Wayans. It only has 10 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and dragged in a scant $7.3 million on its opening weekend.
That won't detract from the enthusiasm.
Warner Bros. president of creative development and worldwide production Greg Silverman talked some marketing talk in the circulated press release.
"We are so excited about bringing the world of Dungeons & Dragons to life on the big screen. This is far and away the most well-known brand in fantasy, which is the genre that drives the most passionate film followings. D&D has endless creative possibilities, giving our filmmakers immense opportunities to delight and thrill both fans and moviegoers new to the property."
We should also not ever let you forget about the 1982 film Mazes and Monsters. Born out of the cultural panic that D&D would turn your children into murdering psychopaths, this gem stars Tom Hanks in his first leading role.
Oh, and it's available on YouTube if you have the inclination.
