But seriously though: if you're a player, you don't get to make up your weapons without DM's blessing.
So that's the episode that should have came up the last week, but didn't due to a technical issue — an update to my system made GIMP a bit crash-happy when using cage transform tool. The worst thing is that I have a very bad habbit of _not_ saving until I'm done, and I was almost done when the crash happened.
You can bet I've been happily mashing that Ctrl+S today.
If your players have never complained about rocks and dying before starting a recon (or if after completing said recon, the situation was not completely slated in their favor) ... consider yourself lucky.
This week, a new HTTYDnD episode brings you another instance of me soapboxing about shit players.
PSA: Don't do things described in this episode. That's some major dick move.
Just like Facebook requiring you to download windows-only malware under the guise of "security." Because fuck you if you're using linux or mac. At least Firefox on android still works.
That's the worst case of a writer's block I've had since I've started making this comic, stalling the new episode for a week and a day.
And let me reiterate:
"[S]ome players definitely have the misconception that roleplaying games are them them vs. the DM. Assuming DM is there voluntarily and out of free will and interest, this doesn't make any sense at all. Yes, the DM is there to throw monsters and stuff at you. At the same hand, DM is also the person who is, very often by... a very wide margin, the single person who's most invested in the story and most interested to see it continue."
That's one of the reasons my second group is much better than the first.
I swear the idea for this episode was way better at the idea stage.
Surprise! Draconic is coming to this comic.
Knock knock, open up the door, it's real.
This is the last episode for 2017, enjoy.
And here we go. Tina has officially joined Tim and Richard in the 'gg ez/gg/ez game, ez life' club.
Technically speaking, 'immovable object' and 'unstoppable force' as presented by these kinds of trick questions you may have seen on the internet are logically the same thing — so it's kinda fitting that this point was used with the twins. After all, they do ride the same dragon.
Oh boy, it's been a while since this comic last had a quality maths joke in it.
Pizza and snacks, the life blood of D&D sessions.
And the second movie is upon us.
‘‘Out with the old and in with the new, right?’’
‘‘The village is throwing a party to celebrate!’’
Technical notes: on that ocassion, the image quality was also slightly bumped (from A4@96 ppi to A4@160 ppi)
I knew I said that this comic will continue mid-november, but I decided that there has to be at least one intermission episode (according to standard outlined by Darths&Droids, that's the DM notes).
I had plans to have this non-canon map up by Friday or Saturday. Instead I've only managed to finish up on Sunday and digitize (+ transcribe) it on Monday. Worth it tho.
Wew lads, this concludes the first movie for us.
If you expect your D&D group to not do this, then you're going to be massively disappointed sooner or later.
This week episode is coming up much bit later than usual — mostly because the last two episodes needed to be written as well (otherwise there would be a risk of having too much (or not enough) content for the last episode).
