The action-heavy short is based on DoomWood from the extremely popular DragonFable RPG, and it was promoted on, one of the top 1,000 websites in the world.

If you’ve been following this site, you may have watched Smithee’s Akumi series. The second episode just released last month.

    Much better than Akumi content wise, though I found the ending to feel anti-climactic (I think it was the subpar music in the end… it should have been bigger and more epic). Animation as always is great from these guys.

    this is great but the music should of been much louder and louder than the sound fx. If it woul of been that way it would of got you into it more and would seem more dramatic!
