Not too long ago we talked a bit about a brand new project spawned from Peter Atkinson, co-owner of Gen Con and founder of Wizards of the Coast, which he has called Chaldea. It’s an epic tale of adventure, war, and planetary politics that will span across several types of media. You can expect graphic novels, film, and original novel pieces to tell the tale of Chaldea, which is a world created by events taking place in an actual tabletop RPG campaign ran by Atkinson himself dating all the way back to 1982.
Chaldea takes roots from traditional fantasy, which includes dragons, elves, demons, and more. This sort of genre gets mixed together with real-world locations and times in history, such as Rome, Babylon, and even ancient Egypt. All of this is blended together in a terrific tale that’s told through various styles of mixed media.
The first piece of this story, entitled War Room, is now available online to view completely for free. In it, a humble toymaker discovers that his tiny creations serve a much greater purpose than he originally planned as his homeland balances on the brink of total war. With some really great acting, fluid scripting, and a meld between both film and graphic novel, War Room is definitely a sight to behold. You can view it for free at the link above, and to find out more about Chaldea visit the project’s official site.
