Take the day off from work and read "DM of the Rings," a very funny comic in which a long-suffering dungeon master tries to persuade Dave -- I mean Frodo -- and eight other players to stay in character as he leads them through a lengthy adventure in a strange new place called Middle Earth. I have been giggling away for an hour straight and we're not even through Moria yet. If you have ever been a DM/GM (*koff*tcpip*koff*), you'll find the creator's comments underneath each episode funny as hell, too -- I was particularly amused by those for Episode XIII.

"Lord of the Rings is more or less the foundation of modern D&D. The latter rose from the former, although the two are now so estranged that to reunite them would be an act of savage madness. Imagine a gaggle of modern hack-n-slash roleplayers who had somehow never been exposed to the original Tolkien mythos, and then imagine taking those players and trying to introduce them to Tolkien via a D&D campaign..."

Episode I: The Copious Backstory ==>

THANK YOU to everyone :) for the warm birthday wishes and virtual gifts, and to the wonderful rivertempest for the real gift of Snape's wand (yes! Snape's wand!!!) -- it is a thing of beauty and I shall cherish it.

Also, my mom sent me this. She knows me well lol.

Re: Happy Birthday!
And yes, "DM of the Rings" is hilarious!

Another thing I find really funny, for all that I am childless, is "The Story About the Baby," by Jeff Vogel. (Jeff Vogel is an indie game developer who makes old-school computer RPG's.)

The only thing they have in common is that Shamus (the author of "DM of the Rings") and Jeff Vogel are both into computer games and have both written funny things. I hope that's enough connection for me to recommend it. :-)

Re: Happy Birthday!
Why Spock, you shouldn't have! Is it a cellular peptide cake with mint frosting!?

Re: Happy Birthday!
Of course not! That would make it a TNG cake, and Spock gives TOS cakes. ;-)

DM of the Rings is a great series, I loved it and with this post I'll be re-reading it again. I think I made one pertinent comment in the series as well.. A lot later.

BTW, the goat tells me to say 'happy birthday!'
