“A combination of improvised comedy and gaming, in an epic, fantasy quest of the audience's own devising”





Electric Talent


"A crowd gathers, no doubt they hear I seek a champion..."

From the makers of Knightmare Live comes The M.M.O.R.P.G show (Spirit of the Festival winners VAULT 2016) to the Edinburgh Fringe this year, premiering at Gilded Balloon’s The Counting House.

In the world of M.M.O.R.P.G, characters get into combat, discussions, negotiations and potential betrayal. Combining improvised comedy with table top gaming in this epic, sprawling, open world, entirely made up, fantasy quest of the audiences own devising. Also included: great jokes about wizards and elves.

The main core of the show sees three volunteers take on the roles of a thief, a warrior and a trigger-happy trainee wizard, then play through one of several narratives. Within the game they make decisions for their character, and attempt actions. Every choice has a consequence, every success decided by a large, 20-sided die.

The format is based upon the fantasy role-play games (Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder) invented in the 70's, and currently enjoying a resurgence. This show is for everyone, people who love games, and even those who have a penchant for Game Of Thrones.

Will you be victorious? Will you bring harmony to the kingdom or will you betray your new friends for personal glory?
