DVD+Comic+Party+KOTG+uStream+Improv = The Guild Strike Gold!

The Guild Season 3 DVD is now available on and sales are brisk. Okay, you might have seen them all on MSN/Xbox/iTunes already - but that isn't the same as owning your own DVD because there are so many extras you can't get elsewhere!! Felicia blogged about the DVD and there is a special Knights of Guild minicast where some fans (including yours truly) talk about each one of the extras. And no - I'm not telling you how access the special Easter Egg! But it's well worth breaking your remote to find it...

And if you're still not convinced you should buy it, consider this. Felicia has been experimenting with Buzz (the new Social Media whatnot from Google) and someone asked her whether the DVD was monetarily better than asking for donations. Her reply was this:

"Um Robert good question. But out of 5 million views on YouTube we only had 350ish donors for the first season. Unfortunately people sporadically donating 1-5 dollars on average at a time cannot fund a production, and then people only donate AFTER they see the episodes. The DVD is a very important part of our show, and we invest a lot of time and money to make it worthwhile to buy outside of the free episodes streaming. That way people get something tangible in exchange for their purchase/donation. I hope that answers your question! :)"

All the six covers to The Guild comic series from

The comic series promises to show a different side to The Guild characters and I'm really looking forward to finding out more about what their lives are like outside of their Guild activities!
