Move action

Move action

Dwarves can actually move further than that if they spend their full action making a double move, but I couldn’t really get into all that in the comic, could I?

We tried to think of what kind of characters the rest of the JLA would play but were quickly distracted by some lonely looking candy.

Anybody else going for the nerd triple crown with a little D&D-ing?

If you liked this one, we’ve done a couple more gaming related strips.

    Man, comic characters playing D&D will never not be funny. This is hilarious, guys.

    I love that Kyle, a teenager, is getting frustrated over Superman, an adult’s, stupidity.

    Great stuff, guys.

    Chris, you draw some great speed lines. Oh yeah, and Superman. You also draw a great Superman.

    I’d ask what character class Batman plays, but I can’t imagine they’d invite him to play after Tower of Babel. “The Kryptonian has a low Will save, and restricted mobility over difficult terrain. Arthur’s paladin is only moderately effective against non-evil threats. Ollie is playing a bard, and therefore irrelevant.”

    “Ollie is playing a bard, and therefore irrelevant.”
    You’ve obviously never seen what a Bard with Charisma 20 can do. Especially when he has swords that make him fly. Diamond Blades represent!
    Curt knows what I’m talkin’ bout.

    Some amusement to pass the time…

    Derek,

    I think swords that make you fly are a bit of an equalizer. (I’m just kidding about the bard; they have a ton of utility and bardic music is huge).

    Okay, I don’t understand ANY of this D&D talk, but nice comic, guys.

    I like how bringing DnD and comic characters together has made the comments section into a singularity of endless nerd banter.

    The DnD talk has gone just one notch beyond my comprehension.

    Who was eaten? My guess is that Ray Palmer is seated opposite of Superman, but I have no reason to think that.
