I really like Marcus’ attitude. I know the comic is ostensibly “this is how to play D&D wrong”, but I think little bits of wisdom sneak in there from time to time.
(Having said that, he did not lose with style.)
This is more or less how I play, on the rare times when I’m a player and not a GM. After a couple of minutes of people deciding what to do with the mysterious door, I tend to just kick it in. This is probably one of the reasons I end up playing meat shield types a lot. Also, I’d last about 2 minutes in the Tomb of Horrors. ;)
The Best of 2014
My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2014.
What is Vulkan?
There's a new graphics API in town. What does that mean, and why do we need it?
Bethesda’s Launcher is Everything You Expect
From the company that brought us Fallout 76 comes a storefront / Steam competitor. It's a work of perfect awfulness. This is a monument to un-usability and anti-features.
Trashing the Heap
What does it mean when a program crashes, and why does it happen?
What is this silly word, why did some people get so irritated by it, and why did it fall out of use?
