A to Z Challenge: The Guild

Click for more participants!
This is another post where I'm going to let the source material shine. But before I start embedding videos, let me give a little background.

The Guild is an internet based show created by Felicia Day, one of the great geek girls out there right now.  The show began as self-funded and quickly became funded by donation.  Now, the show is partnered with Microsoft and has built a solid following.  It's even gotten several web series awards.

The series came out of Day's personal obsession with World of Warcraft.  After two years of self-proclaimed addiction, she decided to turn her experiences into a comedy show.  It revolves around her guild (or a team of players). 

The first season focuses on how Day's character Cyd's life is rocked when the players she knows in the game become people she knows in *gasp* real life! The show has evolved quite a bit since the opening, and I'm really looking forward to Season 5.

Check out the first couple of episodes and see what you think!

The videos won't play for me, stupid computer. I have never watched webisodes before.

Another webisode series that is equally awesome is Ms. Bateman's "Easy to Assemble". Time to visit the Guild.... good find!
