Guild Troubles is a multiscreen audiovisual piece, posed as the narrative visualization of a musical work in progress, and based on the main narrative archetypes of RPG journeys and the dynamics of massive online games as thematic background. A successful MMORPG inhabited by dragons and fantastic creatures happens to be destroyed overnight, with all the characters disappearing except for a small group of baby dragons united by fate, who decide to try and find out what is happening to their world and find a solution to bring it back to life.
