Dimension 20 is a fun show to watch people playing Dungeons & Dragons. Brennan Lee Mulligan is the DM but his cast of players and the story being told is constantly changing. Well, get ready to dive back into the series with The Unsleeping City: Chapter 2. This is a sequel campaign where the heroes of New York are once again needed.
In this sequel campaign to The Unsleeping City, the champions of New York are called upon once again to defend both the waking world and the borough of dreams from the greatest danger of all – unfettered capitalism. Game Master (and New York native) Brennan Lee Mulligan is back to weave a tale about community, magic, and the power of dreams, alongside players Emily Axford, Ally Beardsley, Brian Murphy, Zac Oyama, Siobhan Thompson, and Lou Wilson. Remotely-shot to keep everyone in the cast and production team as safe and healthy as possible, and utilizing virtual battlemaps through the Roll20 platform, this is a season of Dimension 20 unlike any other.
In case you’re wondering what the great evil is that must be defeated, here’s the description:
A massive corporation called Gladiator (that’s basically Amazon) and the collective misanthropy of the world, which begins to manifest in strange ways that threaten both the waking and dreaming worlds. Themes are very much about the importance of community, taking care of one another, and moving forward with life.
The cast of characters is very interesting. We’ve got a recovering alcoholic, a recovering drug addict, a nurse, a woman who runs a tarot shop, a mall manager, and more.
Emily Axford as Sofia Lee (recovering alcoholic widow, Chosen One of the Order of the Concrete Fist, and friend to La Gran Gata, the deity of NYC bodega cats)
Ally Beardsley as Pete (recovering drug addict / dealer, book store clerk, and the Vox Fantasma, the chosen representative of the dreaming world)
Brian Murphy as Cody (manager at the mall Hot Topic who finds himself drawn into the world of magic in an unexpected way)
Zac Oyama as Ricky Matsui (impossibly hunky former firefighter, current community service worker and boyfriend to head of the Gramercy Occult Society, Esther Sinclair)
Siobhan Thompson as Iga aka Madame Anastasia (a working mother who runs a tarot reading shop with mafia connections)
Lou Wilson as Kingston Brown (nurse at St. Owens Hospital and the Vox Populi, the protector of the peoples of New York City)
Fans will be able to watch The Unsleeping City: Chapter 2 on DROPOUT starting November 11.
