Upon arrival at Tracy’s house a few hours later, The police were informed by Mr. Hickman that the voice tracks for the dragon known as Pufalufaromagas was already off to the sound mixers for this week’s release.  Tracy also told the police that “the damage was already done!” and he will not press charges, as there is a good chance that this may be pretty freakin’ cool now that he is involved in the project!

BROTHERS BARBARIAN TAKES THE INTERNET BY STORM!

After creating pre-launch buzz at 2011 GenCon Indy, and launching today, thousands of fantasy fans are already flocking to the new barbarian online sitcom about two young barbarian brothers on a quest to find the evil witch who cursed them with being “middle aged in middle earth”. 

The show stars New York Times bestselling author Margaret Weis and iconic master fantasy artist Larry Elmore, both well known figures from the underground culture that spawned Dungeons & Dragons.

This bombastic new show is using the internet platform with the goal of becoming the next video sensation. The hit web series has already spawned several new knock-offs such as the new Conan movie release on the 18th of this month, and the new Hobbit movie directed by newcomer Peter Jackson, to be released sometime next year. 

Although rushed onto the small screen— just in time to beat the hot new Brothers Barbarian franchise—HBO’s Game of Thrones did what many critics say as “Okay, for a TV show that was obviously trying to beat out serious fantasy storylines like Brother Barbarian.”

This all-new, six-part, live-action, fun-filled web concept premieres today, August 16, 2011. 

Log on to http://www.facebook.com/brothersbarbarian for more information about release dates of each upcoming episodes.

LARRY ELMORE & MARGARET WEIS TO STAR IN WEB SERIES

What do you get when you combine one of the world’s best fantasy authors with one of the world’s greatest fantasy artists? Brothers Barbarian!

Elmore and Weis square off as rivals in this whimsical fantasy web series about two young, handsome, studly brothers who are cursed by an evil witch and changed into out-of-shape, but still handsome and studly (if you ask them) middle-aged barbarians. Weis says she was type-cast as the evil witch. Elmore is the crazy old wizard who aids the brothers in their quest to end the curse and regain their youth and the ability to burn, pillage, and plunder without running out of breath.

“What attracted me to the story of Brothers Barbarian,” said Elmore, “was the humor of the ridiculous situation. The characters are not trying to be funny, but it’s hard not to laugh at a couple of 40-year-old geezers behaving like adolescents.”

“Hey, dudes,” said Weis, “bring on the flying monkeys!”

This all new six-part live-action, fun-filled web series is scheduled to premiere in August. Log on to www.barbarianbrothers.com for more information about the release date for each episode.
