Funny gaming-related comic

So yes­ter­day I fol­lowed a link post­ed in the syn­pro­mo LJ com­mu­ni­ty, and end­ed up at one of the many new web-based com­ic strips. It isn’t even drawn, okay? It’s pic­tures swiped from else­where with text past­ed on top, using some sort of com­ic cre­ator thing.

Any­way, I could­n’t stop ’til I’d read all the avail­able strips, and I absolute­ly could not be qui­et. Of course, Sam had to find out what was so funny.

You need to under­stand that he nev­er finds RPG humor as fun­ny as I do, because it’s fre­quent­ly old hat to him. I’ve large­ly stopped pass­ing those things on to him. He’s been gam­ing since he was 8. I’ve just been gam­ing since we met 8 years ago. Big difference.

There’s also the fact that I’m just a play­er, and he’s always the DM. Dif­fer­ent perspectives.

But with this, he sur­prised me. He was laugh­ing so hard that I tru­ly thought he would hurt himself.

So if it’s fun­ny enough for Sam, I fig­ure it’s worth shar­ing with you.
