HUZZAH! MINDLESS FANBOYISM PAYS OFF!!! F1rst P0st.
Now to be serious. I can understand why the gods love DD our equivilent DnD is soo fun. I just wonder if any of them decided to shake anything up and go with an alinment besides lawful good for the whole party ……
You prolly get a few chaotic-goods as well.
Gruss looks pretty Neutral Good to me, but I suppose he/it/they could be one of the extremes too.
lol a god himself correcting the holy book in person now thats something you dont see everyday.
Heh. If that happened I would have to seriously consider (re)converting – depending on the edits, of course.
if a omnipotent being ever re-edited his own religious text, i’m converting regardless of waht it says.
This seems like something that would be fairly common occurance in any world where gods are both real, and have a vested reason to intervine in mortal affairs. With that said, I’m wondering how this is gonna work out. Religion can be a tricky thing, to say the least…
Pretty sure this is just a one-off, it has that self-contained feel to it.
Well, of course. If you need proof of a god (or gods) existence, it’s watching him/her/it/them revising his/her/it’s/their holy texts. XD
We need more of that.
And thus, another cameo for Wolf and Beaver.
Holy crap I just noticed that! xDDDD
can those two ever stay alive
Would it be funnier if they did though?
Y’know if jesus appeared today under a different name but acting the same way…
*EPIC FACEPALM* I failed my spot check…
Since you botched horridly roll this 1d12 to see how you get hurt
And for how long.
Does a 1 result in death or some sort of self-impalement?
Actually, if its roll a 1d12 damage and you get a 1, thats the best outcome. You only loose 1 Hit Point.
Ah, okay. I’m still learning, so the info’s greatly appreciated.
actually the 1d12 is just the randomizer for how I decided what devious trap i get to use at best he will take 50 damage and at worst a TPK. Sadistic DMs are the best
Kinda like what my Cousin (current DM for our pathfinder game) does with a D6. Shit happens, rolls a D6, six players – you can see where this is going.
You must be playing a really old edition if you’re calling them “Spot Checks”. :B
So much of this is relevant to my fears and irritations with religion and its fears these days. Especially the prophet and role-playing parts.
It shouldn’t even be on your radar for irritations with the pious. Religious people who hate DnD because “omg occult” are a minority. An alarmingly VOCAL minority, but nonetheless, a minority. Like Atheists that claim humanity is a race of gods.
Indeed, one of my friends how plays DnD with us is Christian and he doesn’t give a damn, modern times has very few people who live in the old times.
An atheist would never claim humanity is a race of gods. Atheism = lack of beliefs in the supernatural. No more no less. For that reason, an atheist would never make that claim.
While some buddhistic and satanic beliefs go into self-deification, very few people would go as far as saying humanity is a race of gods.
heh heh. The God of Knowledge didn’t know he was talking to a mortal.
Oh quit looking at me like that! We can’t all talk about the god altering his own religious text!
Is “Dark Dungeons” a reference to the infamous Chick Tract, by any chance?
Heretics…and now you’re supposed to fix it too….that’ll go over well!
I used to get annoyed at people who argued against RPGs for religious reasons. Now I just think it’s kind of funny that some of them actually think that that’s the case… Especially considering that in D&D3.5, Clerics were one of the most ridiculously powerful classes.
It’s even funnier. First edition DnD , AFAIK, all references to actual christianity (which would have been clerics and paladins) had to be taken out, then they went against the game claiming it godless.
Though it get’s worse when you consider that D&D creator Gary Gygax was a heavy christian
Gygax must be rolling in his grave.
I get it. In EN’s world, Jack Thompson is a giant cock.
To which I say “lol” and “Too Right!” Wow. And if our Jack were to EVER experience such a thing…honestly I think it might off himself and make the world a better place for it. ^-^
He’s a chicken, called Jack, talking about the evils of Dungeons & Dragons.
The younger generation just doesn’t get it. Should I put a link up?
Part of me says “no, let them suffer”, but in general that tends to others suffering, most of whom don’t deserve it. :P
Link away. Because to be fair, it’s not a terribly contemporary thing to be lampooning… Exterminatus Now: cutting edge satire, fresh from 1984.
But where are his tracts?
I suspect that if Mr Thompson were faced with his own deity attempting to correct his woefully twisted worldview, he would just threaten to sue anyway.
An answer to the omnipotence paradox then…can God create an opinion he cannot change? Yes, and its name is Jack Thompson.
Guys. Jack Thompson isn’t even relevant anymore. Remember how he got disbarred? That basically finished his career in…anything really.
The other Jack isn’t all that terribly relevant, either. :p
“Why would I?” He asked. “I know everything in the universe, and even if I’m ever wrong (doubtful) i could just alter all of reality so that I WAS right.”
Heh. I like it!
This may be my favorite ExterminatusNow Comic strip of all. Though in true 40k canon, this would be considered heresy, this is only based on 40k, so you won’t be hunted by my Acolyte cell… yet.
-From a Dark Heresy Game Master (Encase you cared what DHGM stood for)
*sigh* I wish this would happen to me, being a Christian is so hard sometimes. Also, as a member of the non denominational church, I promote the playing of D&D, and the eating of Cheetohs. BUT ONLY THE FLAMING HOT AND PUFFY KIND!!!
Straight from the Heart Of Darkness to your video screen….
(Also, sadly, bringing light to the fantastic pun that many others have missed)
Or for a slightly more hilarious, but less relevant (not sure how that is possible given that it is Jack Chick)
man, christians wrote this crap? glad my church reformed.
ONE Christian “wrote this crap”. With, collectively, over a billion followers of some flavor of Christianity, you’re bound to wind up with a few who qualify for “wastes of perfectly good carbon compounds”.
true, just hate how some people will pervert God for thier own goals.
Thou gods are massive D&D nerds! Think it’s time to call it quits when a god appears and corrects your bible.
LOL, just… LOL.
Wher RL god’s where as funky as D’n'D gods we wouldn’t want to escape.
Anyone ever wish God(s) would come down and correct our religious zealots like this? anyone?
No, because then we’d also get Satan doing it.
Pshaw. According to some people I know, he’s already doing it, and the good guy(s) don’t because he/they want(s) people to have a “choice”.
Frankly, it’s not worth the trouble of worrying about whether your text has been altered.
Roll for confusion.
Heh, Jack Chick(en), nice. I didn’t notice at first but on second viewing had a good chuckle. Well played.
So… if the Old Ones theory is correct, and humans actually made the, I won’t mince words, Mobius clone race (:P), why do the Gods appear as furries too?
Well, the Gods are a sort of collective psionic echo given form by the Void and are wholely the fault of the Mobian race. Their strength and stature is highly informed by their followers – man makes God in his own image, as it were. The Old Ones had no part in the Gods of their nascant race, and if anything might view them as a very intruiging if unintended side effect.
Also, they’re not human. Don’t know where you got that idea.
Yeah, I feel a similar way about my own religion. Who knows how much of the bible is ‘translated’ correctly. Not to mention the stuff specifically left out due to contradictions. I meanm seriously. The Christian faith as a whole is a bunch of pompous self rightious poeple who look down on others for persieved wrong doings when they do things themselves! It ticks me off and makes me wonder what God himself thinks of these of poeple. I find your guys take on religion a real hoot. I sure wish religion would make ore sense.
This is my Favorite Strip so far. I Know what it’s like to have an Off Century, like when I had King Mesha Sacrifice his Son to me, back when I was called Chemosh…
Seriously the Gods in this comic series are so damn funny, they could carry a series on their own and just laughing at their followers : D
