Of course. That doesn't stop us from being pedantic nerd-boys, though.

And some of us are more pedantic than others. :nya:

 

I'm looking forward to the next strip in the series. It looks like Miko's going to roll over a certain halfling.

 

I wonder if she ends up joining Nale's crew? :nonp:

"Funny, I always figured I'd be killed by a paladin"

 

"I'll stand between any two murderers I wish, thanks."

 

Poor Miko isn't getting any respect. Then again, she's pretty much forfeited all respect.

Is this a palindromedary tagline?

"Their job is to turn undead and heal the soldiers, nothing else. If their position is overrun, have them fall back and join another squad. I don't want anyone trying to be a PC out there."

 

 

I had to laugh. That was better than the soothsayer who answers your question before you finish it.

 

Lucius Alexander

 

The palindromedary wonders; he doesn't want anyone to be what? a Palindromedary Cleric?

Psst... you guys realize it's a parody comic strip, right?

 

Yes, but it is a parody in the vein of "making fun of a group to which I belong" rather than "making fun of other people". That and it is making fun of D20. :D

That last page is a vicious dig on the "Collectible Miniatures" game and the use of the minis as a playing aid.

 

I once had a DM who had a massive collection of the things and also a distributorship to sell them. He used them in play at times, but not in a long campaign precisely because he didn't want to have to match charatcers to figures.

Hehheh. I was amused, given my tendencies to use Heroclix as miniatures in Champions.

In D&D 3.0/3.5 if the encounter difficulty is very far below your level you get no xp.

Can you still get a role-playing bonus, for uttering something like the "I am a sexy shoeless god of war"?

You can get xp for anything the DM darn well feels like giving them out for, despite attempts to state the contrary for D&D traditionalists.

"I'm a sexy' date=' shoeless god of war!" will no doubt appear on many, many sig files from here on out. :)[/quote']

Funny, that's exactly the thought that went through my mind while reading it.
