Honor Among Thieves is based on the well-known board game Dungeons & Dragons. The movie is directed by John Francis Daley/Jonathan Goldstein, and Daley, Goldstein, and co-writer Michael Gilio wrote the script. There have been several efforts to translate the game’s inventive universe to the big screen, but most of these have been utter failures. This latest version, however, stands out because it was done with a sizable budget that justifies the severity of the source material, and because the cast for the movie is not to be taken lightly. A thrilling trip that will be too much fun to miss out on, according to certain critics who have seen the film, has been promised to us. Anyway, approach with caution as what we have for you today might not be something many of you are comfortable with.
As you may or may not be aware, the premiere of Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves took place on March 10 this month, giving many critics and fortunate spectators an early opportunity to see the movie. Now that the movie’s premiere is just a few days away, the whole narrative description has been leaked and verified by many sources. Even if there could be a few little errors here and there, the majority of it will prove to be accurate. Therefore, continue reading only if you like to read spoilers ahead. HUGE SPOILER WARNING in effect now!
Before his wife was murdered by a Red Wizard he had engaged on a mission, Edgin Darvis spent years working as a Harper. Assembling a group with thief Forge Fitzwilliam and outlaw Simon Aumar, Edgin tried to start again for himself and his daughter Kira while being accompanied by the barbarian Holga Kilgore. Forge’s new friend Sofina is revealed to be a Red Wizard who exploits the break-in to take something else from the stronghold. On one mission, they infiltrated a former Harper stronghold to get a resurrection tablet that would have allowed Edgin to revive his wife. Edgin and Holga are taken prisoner, but Simon and Forge manage to flee.
Two years later, after finding out that Forge had been guarding Kira and had become the Lord of Neverwinter, the two break out of their captivity. Instead of disclosing the real purpose for the break-in—the resurrection tablet for Kira’s mother—Forge has been stating that Edgin was detained because he merely wanted to be wealthy. When Edgin and Holga are about to be put to death by Forge, they manage to escape and decide to form a new squad to raid Forge’s vault and take the resurrection tablet as evidence that Edgin is speaking the truth. They locate Simon to enlist his magic-related skills, and Simon advises they add tiefling druid Doric as a member. The gang is able to verify the vault’s protections thanks to Doric’s animal shapeshifting, but Simon claims he lacks the ability to undo the intricate enchantments.
Holga directs them to an ancient cemetery where Simon can interrogate the deceased using a talisman after recalling a legend about a relic discovered by her people that would have such ability. The gang locates the relic to Xenk Yandar, a paladin and Thay survivor after the Red Wizards destroyed his nation, confirming that the troops claimed the helm they sought in their most recent combat. Simon is given a Hither and Thither Staff that enables short-range teleportation while Xenk takes the group to the subterranean city where he left the artifact.
Xenk leaves after getting the helmet, but Simon struggles to control the artifact. Edgin offers a fresh strategy in the latest episode of Dungeons & Dragons: HAT, suggesting that they utilize the staff to travel inside the vault and seize Forge’s wealth during the fresh Games he has reopened. Edgin and the others discover that Forge has been working with Sofina to cast an ancient ritual to turn those attending the games into her zombie slaves with a horn she stole in the original raid while Forge escapes with the riches when they discover the vault to be empty.
The squad is able to escape during the competition due to Edgin’s manipulation of Forge to allow them to participate in the games. Returning to the boat where Forge had relocated his wealth, Forge demonstrates that Edgin was speaking the truth by threatening Kira in an attempt to get Edgin to give up the boat, only for the gang to retake the boat.
