An original power metal musical comedy

Jaimie, Max, Spencer, Kelly, and Steve are your typical Dungeons & Dragons group with their typical campaign. That is until the group decides to “branch out” and play a mysterious role playing game called “Guilds of Manzoa”. Through the game, the group of friends is transported to a fantasy world where they discover 3 elder dragons (posing as greedy billionaire business moguls in the real world) that control both realms with their hoards of wealth. In order to save mankind they must band together and destroy the evil dragons.
