- Entice them with a compelling story.
- If you can’t do that, then bribe them with treasure.
- If you won’t do that, then let them know that if they don’t play along they will be stuck in this boring, treasure-less campaign forever.

Edit: This comic used to contain the slur for people with mental disabilities. The pre-remastered version is still linked above, and the version of the remaster containing said slur is available here for those emotionally invested in the comic remaining entirely the same. The original word was a sad product of it’s time and I don’t feel the need to inflict it on old or new readers.
God damn it; more slurs. I’m really regretting my decision to just leave everything word-for-word. I didn’t want to deal with angry fanboys but now I’m both dealing with angry fanboys whom I had no hope of making happy and there’s a bunch of slurs. Maybe we’ll just go back and fix them retroactively. I’m like 99.9% certain that upon a remaster, my dad would have taken them out himself. But he wouldn’t have had to worry about people being angry that he was ‘censoring’ the work of a dead man. He would have just done it because it’s not 2006 anymore.
On a lighter note; why anyone would be only motivated by imaginary loot in a roleplaying game is beyond me. But, then again, I’ve been motivated by loot in video games before and the only difference between those things is having a picture of the item in question…
That does it. The only answer is I will be demanding my DM’s choke up carefully detailed hand-drawn pictures of every single piece of loot from now on. I’m sure that won’t have any interpersonal repercussions and everyone will love me.
