Comic Blog! The Nap Sack

This is “script” for today’s comic. The idea was pretty much fully formed when it hit me – Tig is usually the old man, it’s funny that he’d be a baby.

I’ve been watching Lost again with my girlfriend & Charlie made a Bjorn out of a blanket. The weird way bjorn sounds & is spelled was stuck in my head and thus while trying to come up with a Tig joke I was struck with the punspiration (Pun inspiration) for today’s strip!

The rest is history.

Dragonborn being added to Neverwinter!

Wizards announced yesterday that alongside the new Neverwinter Module 4: Tyranny of Dragons they will be adding Dragonborn to the game!

With the purchase of the Dragonborn Legend Pack, players will be able to create their very own Dragonborn characters at the launch of Neverwinter’s Tyranny of Dragons free content update. In addition to being able to start their very own Dragonborn Saga, players will also receive a plethora of items that further evoke the expansion’s Draconic theme.

A Talk About Dragons

I just got through a really interesting Reddit post here.

…and it re-sparked a point that I have been trying to make with D’N’DUI for a while now. I feel that in the past, dragons have gone from giant monsters and a thing that you should be afraid of, to just another monster you can fight. In 4th edition Dungeons and Dragons, there is a type of dragon you can fight at FIRST LEVEL. Now, i found this chart of some dinosaurs:

and you see that red one that dwarfs the human? That will be the size of most of the elder dragons in my campaign. Epic dragons like Gygax, and a few others will be even larger, with much broader heads.

There is a trick to making things cool, especially in D&D, and that is rarity. Cool things aren’t a dime a dozen. Nobody has gotten a “cool” rub on tattoo. When you have a big monster, make it big, and when you have a mean monster make it mean.

Will the party ever kill a full dragon? Maybe, I guess we can only see.

 

– Marco out.
