Admittedly this was mainly my fault for really not explaining the concept accurately enough, but I think I may simply have still been in shock from learning that Cam really didn't know what Dungeons & Dragons was, despite numerous comments made in regards to its inherent geekitude.

Not really happy with how this one turned out, largely due to the fact that I was pretty ill when I drew it. But hopefully I'll be able to make it up to you guys somehow - perhaps by going from a fortnightly update schedule to a comic every week?

Whaddya say?

Still friends?

I personally love D&D. Here on campus we have a club with a consistent setting and at least one campaign running per night, six nights a week. 'Tis awesome.

I can relate to this comic, as well. I myself have tried explaining it to people, but they always seem to circle back around to it being "evil" because some idiots took the game more than a little bit too far. Or they just don't understand the concept of role-playing.
