Whoops! Woke up and realized I hadn't set up the comic for this morning's update. Sorry about that.

Anyway, this comic is about the players wanting to do one thing and the DM subtly reminding them they need to do another thing first.

Sweetheart! You had me a little worried there.

An hour and a half late? UNACCEPTABLE!!!

Heh, looks like Fluttershy's player needed a lesson in genre saviness, not to mention it'd be rather out of character for her to go adventuring alone. I wonder if that's going to be a theme for this session, if the player wants to play her as braver than she actually is.

As subtle as a carrot being thrown to the head.

I actually was in one 1st level campaign where we were going up stairs about 10 feet wide blocked by two frost zombies with a aura that did 5 cold damage each,(they were side by side and if you engage them you receive a cold damage at ten) and some sort of ghoul that can force blast us down the stairs. On top of that he actually question us "do you fight or do you run away?" Yea, real subtle use of rails there DM.

That's what they make crossbows and longbows for. A few headshots from well outside of their ice-range and BAM! they become a non-threat.

Pfft, AMATEURS!

Clearly, you should have destroyed the staircase. ;)

Good plan but we're using a poorly balanced group where our Ranger left and dexterity was the group's dumpstat. Magic is still an option though.

And to be honest, I know the zombies would normally be an expected encounter. It's just more what the dm said that made us think.
