Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

We have decided to move to an every other week schedule from now until the end of the year. We’ve been struggling to get back to once a week on time comics with everything that’s been going on, between one or both of us on overtime, the season for our nonprofit ramping up, and general brain fatigue.  Because, you know, 2020.

There will be a comic this coming Wednesday (9/30) and then every other week after that, with filler during November as per usual.

Don't fear the character sheet.  It's not as bad as you think it is.

Fear the DM. Love the DM. Bribe the DM.

    I’d really love to see that character sheet properly.

    for like every game I ever played I just had a bunch of stats scribbled on a piece of paper with a pencil. True pen&paper without all that fancy printer stuff.

    That’s two votes (there’s a pun there, dealing with my name) for a closer look at that sheet!! ;D

    It’s a pretty straightforward sheet for a character I played before. Half orc fighter with a greatsword. 13th level, decent stats, pretty good AC, rolled decently on HP.

    Feat choice is everything in a pathfinder fighter, so: Weapon focus, power attack, combat reflexes, improved initiative, weapon specialization, iron will vital strike, cleave, improved crit, greater weapon focus, dodge, improved vital strike, greater weapon specialization, and critical focus, in that order.

    That’s how I build fighters most of the time. I have a handful of classes that I have builds for that I tend to return to again and again, because they are, to me, optimized for what I want to do. Then I can build WHO the character is around them. I prefer to keep the mechanics of a character, the math, separate from the flavor.

    Yea should have done that before you got there

  • Mujaki on March 15, 2018 at 8:39 AM

    What we got here? Boxes. Lotsa boxes, lotsa numbers. Numbers in the boxes.
    Ignore ALL of that. That’s all just what’s under the hood, YOU are the one in the driver’s seat. YOU have to decide what roads you’re gonna travel.
    Boxes and numbers just help figure out how long it’ll take to get there.

    Clearly Jase was accustomed to 2E.

  • Khuir on March 19, 2018 at 4:20 AM

    Wait, he gets to be his half orc from “Into the Dungeon”, doesn’t he?

  • Alan on March 20, 2018 at 1:46 PM

    It is not a proper character sheet until there are Cheetos Puff stains on it!

  • Greywolf1963 on March 26, 2018 at 8:19 AM

    Okay, this comment makes me wish that I could upvote comment on this comic.

    I really miss playing D&D. My brother taught me when he was in college. I drove him crazy with the rolls I achieve. Created a Ranger using 3d6 and had half my stats over 18. He disputed that they were honest rolls, so I rerolled with him watching. My Ranger got stronger, better agility, charisma and wisdom. He keeps threatening to take me to Los Vegas. If we do, I’m going to insist that we gamble using his money, Vegas plans for people like me even if he doesn’t believe me.
