    frown OOTS #536 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is up.

    It's a bit of a non sequitor, since it switches back to Roy rather suddenly, but I felt it was important to say this now, rather than next week or so. We'll get back to Haley, Belkar, and Celia next strip.

    Cool, I was here when this updated. Don't know who the guy is though. Just looked him up, the co-creator of DnD, knew the name looked familliar.

    Is it supposed to be ironic funny, like "haha, he's thanking him for single-classed fighters and vancian spellcasting"? If it is, it didn't come off very well.

    Gary Gygax, along with Dave Arneson, created Dungeons & Dragons, which was essentially the first tabletop role-playing game. The Wiki article would be a good place to start learning. Everyone on the forums owes Gary Gygax thanks - even if you don't play D&D or even other RPGs, OotS wouldn't be around without what ultimately comes back to his work.

    No. I actually AM thanking him for those things, considering those things are what made the game I love. No irony was intended.

    Thanks Rich, this made me tear up. I didn't know he had died until I saw this. And this just meant alot to me. I can't say how much I appreciate this, so, Thanks.

    I loved to roll 3d6 six times in order and those class/race restrictions and requierments, the paladin class was a really special one, you nedded a 17 and two 15's to be one. I never played 1st edition or the tomb of horrors but they are in my to-do list. I loved this comic, it blended humor and respect perfectly. Thanks Rich and thanks Gary.
