As much as I admire The Duffer Brothers and their mostly authentic recreation of the 1980s as a setting in Stranger Things, they seriously got their representation of Dungeons & Dragons off. I already talked about "the Demogorgon" in the previous strip of this new theme.
The shooting script of Episode 1 contains the following lines (page 5):
MIKE: An army of Troglodytes charge into the chamber!
He slams SIX WINGED MINIATURES onto the map.
Now, troglodytes are described in D&D as:
Like Balrogs, they don't have wings.
Fortunately, this was just the shooting script. It's difficult to see in the episode as the miniatures are only shown for a fraction of a second, but I'm reasonably sure the miniatures used don't have wings.
Anyway, enough of me ranting about D&D. Admittedly it's a subject I'm passionate about. We only critique that which we love. And rest assured, this new Stranger Things theme is not going to just be D&D nitpicking - it just happens that the opening scene involves the game. We'll be getting on into some other jokes and maybe even some story development soon.
