I should know the woman playing the part of the DM, and it's really bugging me that I can't place her...

Aww, I thought this was going to be about BDSM. I guess the whips and chains need to go back in the toy box.

Right, but not put out by, which is what he was referencing.

That does not mean it is not a parody of itself.

At least from the linked article:

"In fact, the resulting movie is entertaining precisely because it’s not a parody."

Although since the subject matter is practically self-parodying, that is a fine line.

They're making gaming look more fun than it actually is. I wish I were in a gaming group with that much passion.

If it's earnest, then all of the actors in it are doing a really good wink at the camera with what they're doing. I think everyone involved knows precisely how ridiculous it is, and they may have convinced a very intense 90 year old man they were serious.

But the wonderful thing about this tract is...it IS exactly that ludicrous. I mean, there would be no way to do a 'serious, like for real' version of it that didn't come off this hilariously. It's just so shockingly detached from reality that even the most casual attempt to take is seriously falls apart immediately. The tract, itself, is basically the print equivalent of 'Sharknado'.

So why bother trying to mock it? Just play it straight - it'll be exactly as funny as anything you'd be able to come up with...

Chick Tracks aren't exactly Christian, they're super holy crap all the way fire and brimstone everyone is going to hell Evangelical Christian. I mean, seriously. The dude has written several little comics about how Catholics are evil and if you read Harry Potter you're in the grip of Satan. He's not messin' around.

I also just think you can tell... they style the actors are employing just makes it feel, to me, like they're in on the joke. There's also this throwaway gag where one of the girls is like "what could we do alone in our room together?" and the other one sort of stares longingly at her. The characters are supposed to be completely pure beforehand, so implying feelings of homosexuality would ruin that because, you know, according to Chick Tracts gay people are monsters.

As is everyone on this forum because we've all engaged in games of chance.

I think, if nobody else, that Discount-Carice-Van-Houten is definitely in on the joke.

I have trouble believing anyone could have watched that video and wonder if they really believe it. That is the campiest of camp.

You're just saying that because you're not one of the cool RPGers who can't be kicked off of campus because they're too popular.
