New Campaign

So, Amy and I are currently working on the finishing touches to the scripts of Episodes 4 and 5! YAY! We plan on filming these in mid-December, so you'll be receiving them in January/February. After that, we've got the arc down for the rest of the first season, and I foresee very few things that will cause delays in production. So you guys can get your fix! In the meantime, here's a sketch I've been working on of the Deva Cleric that I'm playing in my first campaign.

Set Photos for Shoot Day #2

Hi everyone! We had a very successful shoot this past weekend for Episode 3, which we hope to launch in the next couple of weeks. Sam Proof ( hung out with us, taking pictures and shooting some behind-the-scenes footage with the cast and Jason. I posted some of the pictures, but check out all the pictures here on our Facebook fan site. Essiem and I are working hard on the next few episodes, which will all be really exciting!

Thanks for getting the nerdy Myst references, and keep your eyes peeled for Episode 3 very soon!

Just Around the Bend

Wow everyone, thanks for the great emails and comments about Episode 2! You guys are stellar! We're working hard to get some more episodes filmed and delivered for you guys. Amy and I have the next three episodes nearly finished being written, and our big challenge is going to be assembling the costumes that we want for some of the upcoming adventures that Fortinall, Ra'Assinmatta, and Nefariel get into. Lots of work going into these episodes, so thanks for your patience. Let's just say there will be more shenanigans, more fireballs, and more owls than you know what to do with!

Rose-Colored Glasses

I think my favorite comment about CGO: E1 was my mom's: "I don't think I understood it, but you were pretty!"

In the meantime...

With Amy focusing on such things as drawing and thinking about bard songs, I figured I'd get the ball rolling on some other things for the project - namely costume design. For Chaotic Good Online, I'm trying to find a good mix of modern and medieval. I want to be able to take advantage of the different class styles, while not making everything too antiquated. King of like Hyung-tae Kim's style, but with less skin exposed and no giant torpedoes...

You can expect some sketches up soon, and we'll definitely host up some photos of the costume building process.

In other notes, I'd like to just say how amazing the support has been for the project, even in these early stages. You guys have been awesome, and yes, we're trying to get that episode out, and I promise we'll tell you when we release it. It'll be soon!

Amy's Really Good At Drawing, Too.

Like, super good. You're jealous.

On Characters

Essiem: So, what do you think about Bri's part in the realm?
Amy: I thought she was just going to be NPC's and stuff... but yeah, I think I'd have fun being an actual character.
Essiem: Maybe she's a cleric like we talked about.
Amy: Ooo! I KNOW I KNOW!
Essiem: What?
Amy: A BARD!
Essiem: No... wait, why?
Amy: So she can do songs and poems and stuff.
Essiem: Yeah. No.

Attempt #1

We played some D&D this weekend. I fought a giant robot with flying kicks while Amy cried because her flaming sword heals constructs. Charge+Flying Kick FTW!!! (I drew the underlying sketch for this while there)

We Should Write Something

CGO blooper from Chaotic Good Online on Vimeo.

Basically, we should have written something out first...

short story (written in pen) about one of the writers

by Timmy Johnson (from Mrs. Paulson’s 1st Grade Class)

Amy was walking up a cliff. And then she saw a big monster in a cave. Amy was good and from space. Texas. She had never seen a moster like this before. Not in Texas or the world. It was because it was the last monster like it. It had big eyes and was slimy and really scary. Amy wasn’t scared tho. Amy had been in fights before and had hit people and slapped them in the face.

The monster was not going to wait because it was angry. It swung its tail and Amy had to jump over it. Amy shot a fireball as she jumped. The fireball was on fire and hit the monster and it burned it and hit it. Amy was really happy because the monster was big. The monster wasn’t dead tho. Not ever in Texas or the world or even space had Amy fought a monster like it because it was covered in spikes.

The monster got really angry because it was burned by the fireball that Amy shot at it when they were fighting. The T-Rex roared very loud. and Amy laughed and was so not scared that she even ate a sandwhich.

“You are in trouble dead stupid not scary” Amy shouted at the monster. But the monster was really angry. It shot boiling acid at her and it burned through the ground because Amy jumped when she saw it do that.

But then the monster got hit with another fireball from Amy and was hit. It fell down and blood acid lots of acid! came out of its eyes and mouth. Amy went over to it and hit it with her sword in the head to make sure it was dead and it was so she got money from it and then flew back to the city at the bottom of the cliff and all of the people there gave her more money and fish gold because they were all happy that their was not more monsters just like in Texas.

Amy went to the store and bought a soda. The end.

E! True Hollywood Story

About One of the Creators by Amy

As Matthias, a fighter hailing from the Northwest, trekked up the Green Mountain, he removed his spectacles, frowning at the fog that his sweat had created on his sight-aiding tools. “Blast,” he thought. “My moustached cohorts surely would have uncovered the secret by now.” His thoughts drifted as his defective vision refocused on the verdant shrubbery near him. Could it be? The last arrow emblems needed to complete his quest?

He bent down closer. Suddenly, his knees torqued and gave. Matthias, as stunning a fighter as any, had not any formal physical training for a solid… ohhhh… decade. This quest was a necessity, but he was beginning to think more and more that he could not endure the entirety of the journey. A good rest might do for now.

[By the way, his eyes had failed him yet again. No surprise. The arrow emblem he thought he saw was a mere pinecone. Well, at least he had a pinecone. It served no great purpose. He just appreciated nature, is all.]

Matthias was a good man. He meant well, and was very supportive. He had several friends (if you were going to be specific, his social network included about 727 people, roughly), and enjoyed sending messages of the short quippish kind all day and night. Sure, Matthias had his deformities and character flaws (boy did he ever), but deep down, his intentions were pure.

He picked up the pinecone and tried to eat it. “Ouch! Stupid!” he thought, not incorrectly. “I’ll never find the last arrow.” That was also not incorrect.

Keep trying, though, Matthias. You’ll figure out the forward punch soon enough. Hopefully before your “backward, birdbrained, defective, dim, dim-witted, dopey, dull, dumbbell, dumbo, dumdum, dummy, exceptional, feeble-minded, gorked, half-witted, held back, imbecile, lamebrained, mentally defective, moronic, numbskull, opaque, pinhead, retardo, sappy, simple, simple-minded, slow, slow-witted, stupid, subnormal, touched, underachieving, weak, yo-yo” freakish constitution sinks even further into retardation (“retarded”).

A Rose, By Any Other Name

So, I was watching -----, and it seems like they never say D------s and D-----s. Can we technically use that in our scenes?
Matthew: I don't know, I think so. Let's ask Ben.
Amy: Does Ben work for D------s and D-----s?
Matthew: No, but he knows everything about that stuff.

*Matt leaves and comes back*

Matthew: Ben says no.
Amy: Damnit. What are we going to call it, then?
Matthew: I don't know.
Amy: Giants and Gold?
Matthew: That sounds like another series.
Amy: Dwarves and... something...
Matthew: Titans and Towers?
Amy: Too Greek mythology. Griffins and... Like, Griffins and what?
Matthew: Here, hand me that Player's Handbook.
Amy: K.
Matthew: Okay, okay... *reading* How about Magic and Monsters?
Amy: That works.
Matthew: Good, it was in the synopsis.

Cast List Announced for Chaotic Good!!!

Hey guys,
We finally figured out our cast listing for Chaotic Good Online!
Thank you for all your support so far, and we're stoked to have so many people interested in this project so early in its development. But without further ado...

Co-creator of the project, Amy Vorpahl, has filled in the roll of Bri, the Game Master. Amy is a comedy performer/writer in Los Angeles with training from UCB and iO West. Her all-girl sketch group just won the 2009 iO West Comedy Festival! Check out for more information.

Matthew Buchholtz has taken the seat of Grant, the graduate student who plays Fortinall, the adventuring party's Battle Commander. Matt can be seen in such upcoming series as "Start Select Show" and "The Hollywood Standard." He also can also be seen playing WoW. A lot.

The role of Taylor, the group's rogue, has been given to Barbara King. Barbara King can be seen performing improv and sketch comedy at Groundlings, iO and UCB. Her sketch group, "Tang," won the 2009 Los Angeles comedy festival. TV credits include: Law and Order; Law and Order SVU; All My Children; and As the World Turns.

We brought in Jake Regal to play the role of the youngest member of the table, Anthony. Jake is an actor and improv comedian in Los Angeles, California. You may have seen him on stage at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, performing with his Harold team Lincoln's Bedroom, or on MTV, playing the part of "press corps" in the first thirty seconds of every episode of Paris Hilton's My New BFF Season 2.

For Bri's roommate, Kyle, Ian Gary of the reknowned Groundlings Theater Sunday Company has taken the role. Ian has toured the country as an acclaimed stand up comic. Now he doesnt. Because he now writes and performs sketch comedy every Sunday at the Groundlings.

And that's it so far! Enjoy!!!

Blog Decision

Matthew: I just think the more extras we have (extras = fun things for people to look at vs. additional people in the background) the more people will feel connected to us.

Amy: yea for the site, like a blog.
actually, i wouldn't mind starting the blog right now

Matthew: let's do it.

minus the caps sry

Matthew: omg intense

Amy: haha

Matthew: um, i dunno.

Amy: what about a blogger?*

Matthew: I've never really blogged more than 2 entries ever.
i have facebook :P
we should probably use something that hosts offsite, so we can update from wherever.
I've kind of been blogging via our facebook fan page

Amy: i think i'll try blogger* cuz y not.
oh i should check that out

Matthew: blogger* is what the cool kids use

Amy: oh well no brainer then

*used to be another name before we tried it out and didn't like it... It was sloppy and unkind, and a little fascist
