    Handbook of Heroes #522: "Spat"

    Trouble in paradise? If a shadowy castle full of assassins is paradise, then sure.

    What Wizard lacks in hit points, she makes up in comical (✖╭╮✖) expressions.

    Handbook of Heroes #526: "System Shock"

    Does the phrase "I want to try a new system" fill you with a crushing sense of inevitable doom and cosmic horror? Must be why they're playing CoC this week.

    Hubris is the the greatest natural enemy of Barbarian. Bears are the second greatest.

    Handbook of Heroes #530: "The Hangover"

    The yap bat is a most horrible fiend. It won't let you back into your favorite bar until you defeat it.

    Handbook of Heroes #532: "The Full Party"

    Trying to get your various vassals, minions, cohorts, animal companions, and assorted hangers-on anywhere is a logistical pain in the ass. But it's especially annoying on gondola rides.

    I dont even have stats or names for a lot of the misc camp followers and ship crew for my current party. Theyre interchangeable and faceless. And i may have fed some of them to Mind Flayers at one point, and the party didnt notice, so i dont know if this is a bug or a feature.

    Whatever you do, don't name them. That's how the DM gets you.

    The Patreon voted for Magus / Miss Gestalt as an oddball pairing. Of course the fur would fly.

    I AM the DM. Hence the lack of names. If i was a player, every single one of them would be given a personality whether the DM liked it or not, because i am cruel and like to make the DM do extra work.

    And yes, i put in that work myself on the other side of the screen, so turnabout is fair play.

    The one on the left isnt missing any teeth. And his ears arent even tattered or anything. Fighter would be doing him a favor, really.

    Yeah, but you want to preserve the one with more teeth. They're easier to question.

    Welcome to the comic Warlock!

    Question. How come only some characters get named by their class/role, but then sometimes you get characters like Swash and Buckle with real names?

    ...They're both swashbucklers. They don't have real names.

    Then by that metric Fighter is a real name that just happens to fit his class.

    Theyre obviously named after their class, but they arent named the same thing as their class. Which was my point, and im pretty sure you understood that.

    Swash/Buckle are named after the Swashbuckler class. They're a package deal. :)

    While creating the characters, we were kicking around ideas for what Swashbuckler should look like, and couldn't settle on a single design. I had the idea to split the difference, we giggled like idiots imagining a goofy Team Rocket style pirate duo, and then decided to run with it.

    Handbook of Heroes #542: "White-Haired Witch"

    Since Witch acquired her powers, she developed (un)natural white hair. She’s had to dye it back to blonde again ever since. While she appreciates a nice Doc Oc power-up, no woman wants to go prematurely gray.

    Stakeouts require patience, vigilance, and probably a coloring book for Magus.

    One of my favorite pastimes is figuring which of characters haven't met each other yet. This is the result.
