Comics: Roll Dice Already!

If You Give the GM a Plot Hook…

Now Playing:



At the table, Farid stands up out of the GM chair. Tash holds up a book.

Farid: Great ending everyone. What do you want to play next?

Tash: I’ve got a game for you to try. It’s full of quests and epic adventure.

Farid: Oh?

Tash slides into the GM chair.

Tash: Yes, and it’s got horror elements too, with monsters that want to eat you and everyone you love.

Emma: Tell me more.  

Emma and Farid lean in closer to Tash.

Tash: With only each other to rely on, you must protect the scattered settlements of your people, lest they fall to the deadly Wilds.

Emma and Farid Together: Let’s play!

Tash flips over her book to reveal the cover of Mouse Guard, showing a mouse fighting a snake.

Tash: Oh, and you’re mice.

Emma and Farid Together: Huh?

    Oh cool, Tash is the DM! I was hoping you guys would mix it up.

      Yeah for sure, so each character gets their chance to run a game for each arc. Last arc was Farids turn. Before that, Emma ran Call of Cthulhu, and in our first arc, Tash ran Burning Wheel. Tash has a thing for Luke Crane games, apparently.

        I had no idea you guys had previous ones too, will have to go back and read them all.
