G4 has announced a partnership with streaming channel Peacock to present D&D Live 2021 to viewers of both channels. For those unfamiliar, D&D Live is an annual livestream of tabletop gaming where familiar humans step into fantasy roles. The event lasts just two days, but there will be a ton of dungeon crawling packed into those 48 hours, most of it done by geeky celebrities. This year’s roster includes Tiffany Haddish, Jack Black, Kevin Smith, Seth Green, several members of the WWE, and much of the cast of AP Bio including Patton Oswalt, plus much more.
The Flubbybonks and Guzzleshucks Table includes:
- DrLupo: A fan-favorite with a heart of gold, DrLupo has made a name for himself as one of the most generous streamers in the business. Will that heart of gold shine for his fellow players, or drastically shift alignment after a level 9 petrification spell?
- Negaoryx: Theme park enthusiast, film nerd, and a full-time variety streamer, Negaoryx loves story-driven games so she’ll be a natural Flubbybonker, a team nickname I’m hoping the entire table uses liberally.
- Ify Nwadiwe: Will the comedian who’s appeared on Comedy Central’s Key and Peele, Workaholics, IFC’s Comedy Bang! Bang! roll all his stats into charisma and hit some Forgotten Realm mics, or shock the world and go full melee berserker?
- Kevin Pereira: Attack of the Show! host and IRL office Rogue, Pereira’s quick-wit will temporarily change targets from lampooning gaming culture to harpooning giant sea serpents.
- Adam Sessler: G4’s resident consolemancer who summons review scores directly from the fel, Sessler will lend his seasoned brand of demonology to the Flubbybonkers (I’m really trying to make “Flubbybonkers” a thing).
- Fiona Nova: Fiona Nova is G4’s jill-of-all-trades and a master of… well ALL of them actually. She honestly needs a nerf. I’m confident Fiona’s meteoric rise as a director and producer will naturally translate to power-leveling in the Feywild forests.
The Palace of the Vampire Queen Table includes:
- Patton Oswalt: A comedian, actor, writer, and all-around pillar of nerd culture, Oswalt needs no introduction, but he’ll still need decent rolls to survive whatever Dave has planned.
- Nick Peine: A comedy prodigy famously deemed the best college stand-up in the country, Peine will stress test the theory that the pen is mightier than the sword against dragons with imaginary swords.
- Marisa Baram: Can the actress who’s appeared on BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood and ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder also get away from murderous bands of goblins?
- Allisyn Snyder: Along with being an accomplished thespian, Snyder also does trapeze, scuba diving, and roller derby when not in front of the camera. A perfect mix of action and skills that will translate extremely well to the D&D table.
- Jacob Houston: Known as the well-spoken comedic relief of the class in A.P. BIO, Houston will hopefully be the relief his fellow players need during this dangerous adventure.
The Chaos Carnival Table includes:
- Xavier Woods: A jack-of-all-trades, this Georgia native is both a WWE Superstar and G4 host. Woods combines brain power with star power as one of WWE’s most versatile Superstars.
- Ember Moon: Ember Moon’s success within WWE is owed to the three attributes that she says define her best: skill, honor, and heart. You can bet the War Goddess will bring all three of those attributes to the table.
- MACE: Formerly part of the group Retribution, MACE will undoubtedly bring an unsettling sense of danger to an already nefarious storyline at the table.
- Tyler Breeze: Don’t let the nickname Prince Pretty fool you – Other players at the table will need to be cautious as they navigate with the selfie stunner rolling the dice.
There’s also the Faster, Purple Worm! Kill! Kill! Table starring B. Dave Walters, Xander Jeanneret, Deborah Ann Woll, and Seth Green, which apparently wasn’t worthy enough to get a bullet list.
