"You know that day-dream you had as a little kid? The one where you and your friends got together to battle the evil dragon? Well, these guys are kind of doing that. Every night." -- The Raid - Kickstarter Page
The Pitch - From Kevin Michael Johnson (project leader)
Most people think of video gaming as a childish waste of time. Then when you add magic, dragons and questing, the terms nerd or geek get thrown around.
Well this Kickstarter project intends to show just how serious the online gaming community can be. Some people spend much of their time at conventional hobbies such as knitting, bowling or watching T.V. while others prefer to meet with like minded individuals on line and collaborate to achieve victory over difficult dungeon raiding scenarios.

They are hoping to eventually make a full length feature movie, but the project at Kickstarter is to raise enough money to make a professional demo or trailer in order to promote the idea to the big hitters and get real funding for the movie.
Visit the Kickstarter page for The Raid and donate if you can. I'm pledging $50. With projects listed in Kickstarter, the money is not collected until the goal has been met.
