The Guild is a comedy web series about a group of online gamers. The series was created and written by Felicia Day, an avid gamer. The first season was solely supported by LOYAL FANS through Paypal, before Kickstarter was created. From seasons 2-5 the show was sponsored by Xbox in a groundbreaking web video deal that kept the show independently owned, and then ended its run on YouTube in 2012. The show originally premiered in episodes of 3-8 minutes each, which have been combined into 6 season movies, available on Netflix. There is also a Guild comic book series by Dark Horse. The series stars Felicia Day, Sandeep Parikh, Jeff Lewis, Vincent Caso, Amy Okudo, Robin Thornsen. Featured guest stars include Brent Spiner, Nathan Fillion and Stan Lee among others. The Guild has won numerous awards over the years, from SXSW, YouTube, and Yahoo. It is the recipient of over a dozen Streamy awards, and garnered several nominations for ‘Best Web Series” by the Producer’s Guild of America.

If you are a gamer, geek, or nerd, you are going to love this show. If you aren't, you probably won't understand it.Truly one of the greatest shows ever, unique, interesting, fun and keeps you interested. I hope you'll check it out.

The show revolves around the lives of a gamers' online guild, The Knights of Good, who play countless hours of a fantasy MMORPG video game entitled The Game. The story focuses on Codex, the guild's Priestess (Felicia Day), who attempts to lead a normal life after one of her guild-mates, Warlock Zaboo (Sandeep Parikh), shows up on her doorstep.
