Want to play Dungeons and Dragons in real life? Get out of those steam tunnels you knucklehead and go play in 170km of the real thing!
What’s that? You need old school Dungeons and Dragons comics to help you through the day? You are in luck, I have two for you.
The first is Rich Morris’s Yet Another Fantasy Game Comic. The story starts with the improbable love story a female goblin and a beholder then ranges all over the classic D&D world. The art in this has a rough draft feel to it, but it is a very pro rough draft most of the time. This one can get rude with mild nudity and lots of adult humor, but it never gets anything past a PG-13 or a 1970s R. The story is a long one, the link sends you to the first strip, read a couple a day until you catch up.
The second is Lore Sjöberg’s Monster Manual Comix, which is a pretty good look at the absurdity of the usual D&D monsters. Both comics are funny, but Lore’s is more like a traditional newspaper gag strip without a storyline. Lor’s site has lots of other good stuff spilling over from his gig as Wired’s funny guy.
At a birthday dinner for a friend last night I was told I was neglecting my duties here by not posting up some things I thought had already received wide internet play. Normally if things are turning up on a bunch of sites I skip posting it, but I was reminded that that are some who don’t read the big sites so consider this post a quick wrap up. Warning, this will be a big post with stuff you may have seen before. The dinner was great by the way, the double tuna rolls were fantastic.
