Updates with cool game and RPG related stuff every week.
Part 1 of my comic "My First Character", a D&D inspired story of friends rolling dice together for the first time.
Not gonna lie, this is the first comic project I’ve done since I was in high school, which is part of why it looks a little rough around the edges.
Part 2 will be up before the end of May. Lemme know what you think.
Unfortunately as far as I could find, part 2 has not been finished - however I think part one stands on it’s own a great example of what kind of aspects may make up a variety of actual female power/adventure fantasy rather than the extremely limited and rarely accurate variety pushed by popular media.
This reminds me so much of my first time playing a tabletop RPG. Which was only a few months ago, but I digress.
Anyway, while I love the agency that playing tabletoppers or writing fanfiction gives us over creating our characters, it is utterly pitiful that we only have our imaginations and a woefully limited few sources we can go to when trying to find a fictional role model we can admire.
Reblogging again as this now has over 6000 notes! Wow!
Two quick things:
- A lot of people have commented on how “unrealistic” it is for the party to be fighting a beholder at “second level”. My guess is these people are unfamiliar with the kinds of players I get at my table, and how creative they are.
- Part 2 is on the way. Look for it in November. Once Review Octobergeddon is over, it is the project that’s getting the most attention.
Thank you all so much for your continued support. It is extremely humbling.

EDIT: Full disclosure, I received an early review copy of this book via Net Galley.
Why just write a review when you can illustrate one?
Hey! Got reblogged by the official D&D tumblr.

Octobergeddon for Reviews!
This month (aside from a handful of Halloween posts) will be primarily focussed on RPG book reviews. Here’s a list of reviews going up around the beginning of the month:
- Monster Manual (D&D fifth edition)
- Hoard of the Dragon Queen (D&D fifth edition)
- Death Frost Doom (revised 2014, Lamentations of the Flame Princess)
- A Red & Pleasant Land (Zak S, Lamentations of the Flame Princess)
- Islands of the Purple-Haunted Putrescence (VS, OSR systems)
I can only promise that my reviews will be as tough and hard hitting as I am.

Just had an idea.
I have several artist friends who would be willing to draw DND minis. We all have pretty different styles - mine is cartoony, for example, but I know that isn’t for everyone. I don’t doubt that I could find a wide range of styles from Adventure Time-ish to more realistic.
oh and @joewalt too
An interesting idea. When I get up, I think I’m going to see about making some kind of blank template page for this. One for artists to use to make their example monster miniatures on.
Question is, if a main/host site was made to display, organize, and process these commissions, what kind of site would it be? Another tumblr? An etsy page? Something more original? Lemme know what you think.
