    Ah, the horror of realizing that all those guys you just killed were too low of a CR....

    Ouch. That has got to hurt. Both the arrow & lack of XP, that is. The arrow that Belkar will undoubtedly jab through whoever tells him about the XP, to be precise.

    All this comic needed was a 300 reference to be the most epic OOTS ever.

    OMG! This totally affirms my love of Belkar!

    I love him so much, even if he would pwn me at any given opportunity.
    : I think i just had an evilgasm.
    :Stop oppressing my culture, you ethnocentric bitch!
    : Belkar is a horrible, loathesome, supremely selfish creature who behaves contemptibly, laughs at the pain of others, has no manners whatsoever, and whose mental acuity would be compared unfavorably to a table. And yet I find I still prefer him to you.

    But hey, he got to kill multiple beings for the first time in a long time. Not much of a consolation, but it's something.

    Actually, that's a HUGE number of Hobbos. He did an AWESOME job all things considered. That+V's extermination of hobbos on hir front, the two of them might just turn the tide of battle.

    Excellent. (C'mon. You know you saw that, watching Belkar tear through hordes of hobgoblins.)
    Or, if I were to quote one of my more favored villains, 'yesssss.....'

    I like this comic, if only for the sheer Belkarian carnage.

    Heh. "Sexy shoeless god of war", indeed.

    Whoa...
    That's pretty awesome.

    Oh and, I believe (don't quote me on this, though) that once your Challenge Rating is significantly higher than your opponents, they don't yield XP.

    To prevent level 20s levelling by exterminating all the rats in the world, I guess.

    Belkar is somewhere in the 12-15 CR range. Hobgoblins are what, 1/2?

    Oh, and, by the way... I definitely think the last couple of panels are Belkar's Barbarian level being used to great effect. If that's not rage, I don't know what is.

    Well, Thog's rage was more powerful, but he's got what, 14 Barb levels? Belkar's only got one.

    Rules that supersede Rule 0:

    Rule -1: You're all there to have fun. The GM and the players should never do anything that would limit people's fun, for any in-game or real-life reason.

    Rule -0.5 (corollary): That means that if someone's fun is getting in the way of other people's fun, that person needs to change how they're playing.

    Lol, nice. I don't think he'd be too upset over the xp loss though. He hasn't been able to actually kill anything in so long the euphoria of battle is probably enough.
