Dimension 20 is a Tabletop RPG actual-play web series and podcast produced by College Humor and Dropout. All episodes are available on Dropout. Some seasons have been released as a podcast, some are available on YouTube and some have been streamed live on Twitch.

Dimension 20 is an anthology show based on homebrewed Dungeons and Dragons Fifth Edition settings and other tabletop RPGs.

Seasons

  • Fantasty High follows six students in their time at Aguefort Adventuring Academy in a parody of high fantasy settings. Think a normal D&D party via The Breakfast Club. So far it has followed them through Freshman and Sophomore year (two full seasons), as well as special events as one-off live shows (e.g. Boy's Night).
  • The Unsleeping City is an urban fantasy setting based in magical New York, which includes the sixth borough of Nod. Includes two full seasons so far.
  • A Crown of Candy, a high-lethality season fusing the themes of Game of Thrones and Candyland.
  • Escape from the Bloodkeep is a parody of The Lord of the Rings, told from the villains' perspective.
  • Tiny Heist, a The Borrowers/Toy Story/A Bug's Life version of Ocean's 11.
  • Escape from Leviathon. PIRATES!
  • Of Mice & Murder, a Sherlock Holmes/Beatrix Potter fusion murder mystery in the style of Agatha Christie.
  • Magic & Misfits, a Harry Potter/magical school parody using the Kids on Brooms TTRPG system.
