Dimension 20 Wiki

Are you new to Dimension 20 and wondering where to start? Or maybe you've been hooked by that first season but are unsure about what to watch next? Check out the lists below! The Dimension 20 Twitter also has a great thread for new fans that lists all the essentials and includes links to some great resources too-- including a shoutout to this very wiki!

Season Filming and Release Schedules:

If you're interested in taking a closer look at a typical filming and release schedule, you can check out this timeline, created by our admin Shanimal, or this much more exhaustive timeline, created by Os Lusiadas on the Dropout Discord. As a general rule: filming is completed at least 3-4 months before release; new trailers are released the week after a season finale; and a new season premieres about 2-4 weeks after the trailer is released.

By Tone and Genre[]

Seasons listed here are sorted according to approximate tone, ranging from Comedy (left) to Tragedy (right), and genre, ranging from Modern (top) to Classic Fantasy (bottom). Additional campaign information such as guest casts, PC levels, and plot synopses can be found on each campaign’s wiki page!

A Starstruck Odyssey
Set in the world of Starstruck, an 80s sci-fi comic co-created by Elaine Lee (Brennan's mom!), this season's party is the motley, barely-competent crew of a hot-dog-shaped space freighter. It seems the entire galaxy is against them as they flee from outpost to outpost in a race to save it, but folks, the ball just keeps rolling up. This season truly shows the Intrepid Heroes at their best teamwork yet.
The Unsleeping City
Urban fantasy set in modern-day New York City, which is a powerful but largely hidden hub of magical activity. A healthy mix of juicy-but-serious drama and just plain stupid comedic shenanigans. A diverse cast of characters reflective of the city itself and a true love letter to the city, as most of the cast has lived in NYC at one point or another.
The Unsleeping City:
Chapter II
The PCs return several years later to save the city once again. As they reunite, they really feel those years spent apart, which plays into this season's themes of isolation, the inherent loneliness of living in the city, and the importance of the communities that can be found there. Also explores a bit of the city's classic history.

Mice & Murder
A murder mystery set in Edwardian England with a colorful cast of talking animals. This is a non-magical, low-combat setting with complicated plotting, rich characterization, and deeply silly action. Combined with an all-CollegeHumor alum cast, this makes for a fast-paced, always-suspenseful thriller with endless hijinks and great PC chemistry.
Shriek Week
The first week of senior year at a universtiy for monsters from folklore, fantasy, and pop culture. The PCs are much more concerned about dating and extracurriculars than the central mystery of the plot, and so is the game. Played using the Mythic system designed by season GM Gabe Hicks.
Fantasy High
The classic fantasy elements of D&D in a more modern American high school (or rather adventurer's academy) setting. Dimension 20's first and probably most comedy-dense season. Characters are high school freshmen, and players are new to 5e, which makes it a great starting point overall for those new to TTRPGs and Actual Plays, especially if you can watch until at least the end of episode two.
Tiny Heist
An Ocean's Eleven-style heist in a Borrowers/Bug's Life/Toy Story setting. Not your typical 5e gameplay style, as they adapt the combat and skill check mechanics a bit to suit the story better, but it makes it a great place for fans of The Adventure Zone to start, as it also stars the McElroys!
The Seven
A spinoff of Fantasy High starring the Seven Maidens at the center of the first season's mystery. This season features an all-non-male cast and tackles the unique struggles of a group of teenaged girls on a world-shaking quest to get their GEDs and graduate early.
Misfits and Magic
A new system (Kids on Brooms), and a new-yet-familiar GM (Aabria Iyengar), but the same Dimension 20 charm of combining genres and settings to smash every expectation. The cast for this season is made up of hardcore Harry Potter fans who wanted to create a better and more diverse magical world just for them-- this campaign reforms the world of Hogwarts real-time with four American exchange students on a mission to fuck the system.
Pirates of Leviathan
A pirate-themed season taking place in one of the locations from Dimension 20 LIVE, but with a new cast of TTRPG veterans and superstars who make up the most unlikely but strangely charming group of friends. This is the first season to be recorded remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so all combat is theater-of-the-mind, but some animated editing is done to the character art to make up for the lack of minis.
Dimension 20 LIVE
(Fantasy High
Sophomore Year)
The PCs leave their hometown on a more classic-fantasy-style quest for their spring break. This quest is not without its difficulties, and the season touches on some pretty heavy topics, but the character development is all the better for it. This season was a livestream, so it is not edited, nor does it follow the usual RP-Combat episode format. As a result, all combat is theater-of-the-mind, and allows for a looser play style.
A Crown of Candy
Game of Thrones style violence and political intrigue in a low-magic Candyland setting. All players start out with one back-up character on deck, as this campaign is chock full of high-lethality combat and is completely Revivify-free-- characters that die stay dead. The people are made of food, but this is without a doubt the heaviest and most intense season of Dimension 20.
Escape from
the Bloodkeep
A close 1-to-1 Lord of the Rings parody where classic fantasy meets workplace comedy. This is a high-level campaign is told from the villans' perspective, and is a good place for fans of Critical Role to start, as it stars DM Matthew Mercer as a player.
CLASSIC FANTASY
