Charles Gunn asks Fred Burkle for the slime analysis on “the Illithid case.” Illithids are the mind-flayers from the Dungeons and Dragons games, thus making the various D&D realms alternate realities to the CU.

Does this require that the various D&D realms be actual AUs, or maybe they're just supernatual/demon dimensions within the CU? After all, I assume the various demon dimensions seen in Buffy/Angel are part of the CU, and it seems like the D&D realms would fit easily into that sort of classification.ReplyDelete
There's an episode of Angel where the protagonists is asked if he's familiar with Dungeons and Dragons. He responds "I've seen a few."ReplyDelete
Is this the first reference to Dungeons and Dragons? If so I wonder what (if any) link it might have to the Lord of the Rings?
Will D&D crossovers like the Abyssal Plague be covered as a result?ReplyDelete
Having just read the wikipedia article on the creatures I notice they are fairly Cthulhuesque so there might be some relation thereReplyDelete
I think since the various D& D universes are fairly complex with alternate dimensions and universe if their own it would be better if they were AUsReplyDelete
