  1. this is probably very fulfilling for this man. I can see why.

  2. The game seems fun. But this is ridiculous.

  3. 20800 hours???? it's literally nothing for Dota 2 players

  4. Want to bet that he's not married? If he is, it would have to be to a dedicated D&D player. I'd like to know about his story line over a forty year period and how he kept it fresh for the players. Perhaps he could live cast some of his sessions.

  5. My toughest challenge is king boom.boom fly nation's challenge

  6. And Dungeons and dragons will rise again!

  7. Speech of the devil of my name

  8. Parts of speech of my name

  9. The third person if my name

  10. Star wars is gang membership
    Star trek is occult of my name

  11. What is truely impressive is that fact that this guy can do all this and still get laid and even married 😂🤟

  12. If this man has all the lore of his world written down, I imagine it would look a lot like Dwarf Fortress history generation.

  13. I bet he is gonna reincarnated in that game next life ☺️

  14. Liberal Who Likes Being Dominated And Shlt On says:

    he doesnt let people touch the figurines. i aint playin
    also weird tbh

  15. The fundamental aspect of this whole thing, especially towards the summary of this video, is that the game is really the friends we made along the way.

  16. The first 40 year is just the prologue of the game

  17. This guy created Stranger Things, he just doesn't want to admit it.

  18. It's actually 4hr just seems like 40 years.

  19. 3:23 How his eyes and tone instantly have changed XDD LEGENDARY DND GM XDDDD <3

  20. Best dungeon master = world's most creative liar. 😁

  21. I start in 2 years for my collection of 3d print D & D 😉 Retalk me 🙂

  22. Imagine saying "we go I to the town" and then you gotta wait an hour for him to setup the figurines. He sounds so unbearably annoying to play with…

  23. this is pretty normal to be honest except the no touching that's a bit weird

  24. only 20,000 hours in 40 years? Topped that just playing elder scrolls over the past 4 years only playing on weekends. Maybe his math is wrong?

  25. That is dedication right there. I wanna be a part of this now

  26. Homie is insane! If my dm told me that when my character died I would have to find a new group I wouldn't start playing that's toxic af.

  27. This video introduced me to dnd and yesterday I officially started my very first campaign

  28. He certainly went above and beyond. That is 110% awesome, but remember if you really want to be play it can be completely improvised with enough imagination
