The Great Kingdom documentary on Kickstarter

The Great Kingdom documentary has just reached its funding goal on Kickstarter. This documentary, which tracks some of the history of TSR and Dungeons and Dragons has not been without controversy and has got some legal issues going on with another documentary relating to Dungeons & Dragons. As it turns out, two of the producers on the other documentary are the leads on this project. The controversy has been covered by The Verge quite well, and this project has the backing of Benoist Poiré, Ernest Gary Gygax Jr., and Rob Kuntz among others.

A number of other bloggers have posted interviews with the creators, including David Hargrave over at Troll and Flame and Joseph Bloch at the Greyhawk Grognard. The creators assure backers that the legal issues are not going to be a problem for the completion of the Kickstarter, but is a Kickstarter project starting with such a troubled past and present really going to be be able to deliver on what it is promising, especially, as there seems to be quite a nasty legal spat in the offing? I guess we’ll have to wait and see…
