Created and written by Felicia Day, who also stars as Cyd Sherman (aka Codex). It premiered on YouTube on July 27, 2007. Subsequent webisodes premiered on Microsoft’s Xbox Live Marketplace, Zune Marketplace, and MSN Video. The webisodes were later made available on the official Guild website,
The show revolves around the lives of an online guild, The Knights of Good, who play countless hours of an MMORPG (Massively multiplayer online role-playing game) video game, aptly named “The Game” (world of warcraft). The story focuses on Codex, the guild’s Priestess.
The Guild was originally intended to be a pilot episode for a TV series, but Felicia Day was advised that it would be much more suited for a web series. The show changed its format and script to fit a web series. The first episode “Wake-Up Call” premiered on YouTube on July 27, 2007. After the first three episodes, the group ran out of money; but a link to Day’s PayPal brought enough donations to fund “Cheesybeards” and “Rather Be Raiding”. The first season ended on May 15, 2008, consisting of 10 episodes and two specials (including the Christmas special, “Christmas Raid Carol”).
The first episode of Season 5 was released on Xbox Live and Zune on July 26, 2011.
Anyone who has played Warcraft will instantly get this awesome show. It’s lol from start to end.
