I Finally Review Something Good  

Posted




So, it's been awhile since I posted anything. I figured with my one reader, it wouldn't actually be a very big deal. It turns out I was wrong! My little sister started bugging me to update. On the one hand, this is a good thing. I mean, I just doubled my readership right there! One the other, I'm already disappointing them. Sad.

Anyway, here is what I've been spending my online time doing (well this and watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer)...



It's called Order of the Stick and it is amazing. So the characters are rudely animated. So what if they run away a lot, and so what if the rogue's stray hair looks a bit like a scar. This comic has meta-gaming at it's finest. Well, not exactly meta-gaming, more like jokes about meta-gaming. Still, if Shakespeare was a nerdy web comic writer, I think jokes about skill checks and character sheet checking whilst playing would be his new guy-playing-a-girl-disguised-as-guy plot line.
This may be an exaggeration. I'm not sure. But I am stoked about this comic. I read all 549 issues in three days. I'd read more, but I ran out.
Some of you, if you are nerdy like me (and judging by Picard's victory over there, I'm guessing) have probably already heard about this comic. If you aren't a gamer, you might not get some of the jokes. But just trust me when I say, stat references, monster manual mentions, and failed spot checks are HILARIOUS. If you are a gamer, or you know one, then hope on over to http://www.giantitp.com/Comics.htmland laugh your ass off.

Hell if you aren't, do it anyway. It might convince you to join a world of make believe that I find sexy and cool. Bring on the Cheetos covered fingers boys, and the ink blotted character sheets. I'll bring the shiny d20's. (Guess what guys, she's single).

Also, if you really love me, you will buy me the "I killed a PC and all I got was this T-Shirt" T-Shirt from CafePress. I know you really love me. I feel it in my bones.
