    Default The Order of the Stick (by Rich Burlew)

    I heard so much about it in TV Tropes, do you think it's worth to read?

    Well this is a fan site dedicated to it. So my gut says you’re gonna get a fair few answers saying “yeah.”

    For my own part. Yeah. I won’t say it’s the greatest thing I’ve ever read, or that I agree with every decision Mr. Burlew has made. But it is easily my favorite fantasy webcomic, and has been consistently entertaining with moments of brilliance interspersed within.

    I’d definitely give it a read. Though I will say the early comics lay a bit heavy on jokes about the D&D 3.5 game system, before it develops into its true story and world. I still find them funny, but if you are unfamiliar many of the jokes may not land for you.

    Anyway it is a decent webcomic, good story, characterization etc whether you think it is worth a read is something you will have to decide for yourself.

    Why? There's a literal sidebar right to the left pointing you to the comics. This very much is the attached forum for Order of the Stick.

    I think it was the "fan site" bit, since this site is owned and operated by the author of The Order of the Stick.

    It's a good comic man, proper bo. The plot is brilliant and the characters quite engaging, but I'll be honest with you some of the voice acting feels a little amateurish. The prequels are also worth checking out.

    Might be hard to win. That comic dude has an army that includes a silver dragon from Alabama.

    Fried chicken chicken makes no sense. Chicken-fried chicken is the dish, and it's really just an alternative to chicken-fried steak, but with a much sillier name.

    it's basically like making fried chicken in a pan, except instead you do it with a thin and tenderize steak (like cube steak or round steak flattened with a mallet). So it's steak that's battered and fried like chicken... chicken-fried steak.

    Replace steak with chicken cutlet and you have chicken-fried chicken. Tasty dish with stupid name.

    It's also called "country fried steak" by people who are wrong.

    Rumor has it the Silver Dragon is actually leading the coup, though. Our chances might be better than you think!
