What we need is a Battering Ram…

If you ever played D&D (or any RPG game for that matter) and/or you are a fan of LOTR movies, go check out the DM of the Rings comic at the Twenty Sided blog. It is absolutely hilarious!

The author retells the story of LOTR as a D&D Campaign. As you would expect from a accurate depiction of a RPG play you see the player controlled hobbits complaining about their shitty stats, making Monty Python jokes, and discussing finer points of upgrading to PHP5 while in character…

The comic starts here with the first episode. You can use the links to navigate from there.

So far my favorite episode must be the Gates of Moria riddle. I swear, this has happened to me so many times it is not even funny! Every time the GM come up with The Riddle™ or The Impassable Obstacle™ we would usually come up with The Crazy Plan™ to circumvent it. :mrgreen:

Hey, who said you can’t build a bridge over the impassable bottomless chasm? Especially if one of the characters on the team is a Dwarf Engineer…

    I think there will be more, althought it doesn’t seem to be one of those daily or weekly updated comics. It’s more of a “it’ll be done when it’s done” things.

    I subscribed to the RSS feed to keep track of it.
