I was at my sister's house on Sunday with my mom, and while they were off doing other things, I was idly flipping through channels on her TV. I landed on a channel and said, "Hey, that's Wil Wheaton! What's this about?"

It turns out that it was an episode of Titansgrave: The Ashes of Valkana. (Obligatory TVTropes link.) In fact, I will show you the exact point at which I flipped into the show. It was during Chapter 5, just as they landed at the Skyside Stronghold. I knew immediately that it was a show about a tabletop RPG, but I thought at first that it was mostly in a science fiction setting, what with a ship landing and robots and blasters and cyborgs and all that. Well, it's kind of like that, but also about half-and-half with fantasy as well. Since then, I've gone back and watched the entire series. It's pretty great.

Here, have a redundant embed, too, just for the hell of it.

Also, I am now subscribed to Geek & Sundry in general, and plan to go and watch some of the channel's other stuff. I'd heard of it before, vaguely, but had never really looked into it until now. Basically, this and Counter Monkey are the only real exposure that I've had to tabletop gaming. CRPGs like Baldur's Gate and Planescape: Torment are great, but I guess it's just not the same thing. Maybe someday I'll have a chance to try the real thing (despite being mostly an asocial [not to be confused with "antisocial"] homebody).
