Book Review: The Genesis of Oblivion Saga Maxwell Alexander Drake

This month, the Bookshelf comes to you from the site of the Super Bowl, where J.W. (part owner of the Green Bay Packers) tells you all about The Genesis of Oblivion Saga, a series of fantasy books by Maxwell Alexander Drake. (By the way, J.W. apologizes to the good people of Nevada for mispronouncing the state’s name. Hopefully J.W. won’t ever have to talk about a literary executor from Nevada, because then he’ll be in a lot of trouble.)

TheOneRing.net Presents: Four Tanks and a Healer Episode 2

Be sure to watch Episode 1: “From the Beginning”

“Four Tanks and a Healer” is a funny, two-part series created by filmmaker Larry Longstreth (“The Long, Slow Death of a Twenty-Something”, “Batman’s Gonna Get Shot in the Face”) under the watchful eye of “Lord of the Rings” executive producer, Mark Ordesky. The pilot episodes were created in the hopes that they will one day result in a full-fledged series.

Both Longstreth and Ordesky are nerds at heart – with Mark being a closet tabletop Dungeons and Dragons veteran and Longstreth being a fan of the genre’s newer forms: World of Warcraft and Lord of the Rings Online.

“Four Tanks and a Healer” is an Adult Swim-style look at the lives these people live, from the sole perspective of their in-game characters. Taking place entirely inside an online roleplaying video game, the series follows a group of misfit gamers as they venture across fantastic landscapes and epic quests, all from the comfort of their real-life computer chairs.

At times funny and at times just plain pathetic, the show explores the geeky underground culture of fantasy roleplaying – from the amazing displays of imagination and wish fulfillment to the downside of having to play alongside socially-inept elitists and basement-dwelling cretins. The show’s protagonists – Malcom the dwarf, Redbeerd the dwarf, Nickelsack the gnome, PlzmePlz the human and LuvPrncess the fairy princess, all serve as funny and insightful glimpses not only into who their real-life counterparts are, but also into who they wish they could be. (For example, the sexy fairy princess of the group, LuvPrncess, is actually a 50 year old man). (more…)
