I cant say anything, my group in the past resorted to 5 different chips from the big bundle snack packs when our dm forgot our characters that we had previously forgotten at their house… =/

I guess that’s the way the cookie crumbles…

Look on the bright side, 1. At least you’re not hazelnut flavored. 🤮

As a DM and a Player, I’ve seen Starbursts, Skittles, Hershey Kisses, Mambas, Dice, Coins, Rocks, etc… Hell, I’ve even had a guy use his finger from his prosthetic hand! (He had one that had separate joints. He just took his pinky finger off. [cool but it was a bit… ummm… Shudder!]) The finger jokes were just flat out wild! If you can’t take a bit of ribbing for unique figures, then you really shouldn’t be playing!

My favurite was a elven druid, for whom the stand-in when the figure was forgotten, was a daemonette of Slaanesh

Elvish druid, protector of nature, sextuple-breasted daemonette of Slaanesh, luring mortals to Chaos just by existing…

Same thing, right?

Hmmm… Watch out or you might run in to a Nabisghost! Watch out for the Nesquik sand! And who can forget the dreaded Keeble-Demon?

Salt shaker? No way, he’d be bound to be as-salt-ed.

-2 points. The shaker always does the as-salting.

Did anyone else ever chop up a bunch of Oreos in a bowl and pour milk in it? Tasted a lot better than Oreo O’s, IMO.

The way these guys often turn to horrendous violence, I see this continuing till 1 whips out a cleaver, hacks off a hand of one of the joking players, digs into it while they scream on the floor, and declares a knuckle bone his new minifig replacement, and asking if anyone has any comments on that.

at first i thought this was going to be satire about unnecessary filler in games to make them seem longer since the cookie was leading the way. clearly i overthink things…

You forgot to mention what might happen to the little guy.

A monster’ll eat the middle first and save the chocolate cookie outsides for last, guaranteeing horrific, agonizing pain. =)

And yeah, those that aren’t old enough to remember that commercial, will be so lost.

The pieces are color coded, nice!
Also, this is what a small shred of paper with a picture printed out is for. And a bit of tape.

I love being able to see the previous comic for the “theme” we are in, but I really wish there was a button to show the previous comic by calendar, when we switch themes and I missed a day I have to jump around to figure out where it was.

Iteration 1 of “new thing” will suck. The shortcomings won’t be obvious. It *is* a great idea to have a system for following a series, lets me go “Oh, wow… the space plot… shit, where did they leave off?” Just… doesn’t come up as often as “Did I see the previous comic?” =D

Thanks I figured you were thinking about it, maybe just moving the pulldown in the archive menu next to the “previous” button and linking it to that so by default I can go back and forth in the story (or whichever makes sense) but I can change ti from “All” to “Analog” if I want to.

Funny side note, I wanted to check if there was a response after reading the comic today and of course hit the previous button which of course didn’t work 🙂

That isn’t how it works for me, the Prev/Next button works exactly the same as the arrows besides the comic.

Only way I can get to old comics is to go to the Archive then switch to all then go to the previous one (unless of course the comics are in the same universe)
