One more page until this mini-arc's over! After that, I've got several weeks of guest comics to finally get that long-due break from comic-writing.

How about a fill in the blanks one?
"You know that your a master _______ when you can _________."
No responses that are M, R, NC-17 or higher.

You are a master "thief" when you can "steal someone's underwear, while they're still wearing it. And they don't notice it until they get home".

You know that you're a master GM
when you can kill the entire party but everyone is happy with the outcome.

...or when you can let loose the loonies and munchkins in the group yet still control where the party is going.

You know that you're a master sniper when you killed a president of a colony being in another solar system from Earth.
With a headshot.

or you know your a master sniper when you can headshot from over 2 miles away- despite being completely blind.

yes, I made a blind sniper, and yes he was awesome.

then he slipped on spilled beer at the pool hall and got impaled by his own cue stick.
bummer.

I once made a mute wizard in a setting where all spells had to be chanelled vocally.
It didn't go as well as yours though.

You know that you're a master comic artist when you can regularly put up comics for years and your audience just keeps growing.

Thanks NS, and looking forward to your return!

I once pointed out to a GM that, theoretically, a gunslinger could earn infinite money by making and selling silver bullets using silver coins. I even mathed it out.

Serious answer:

You know that you're a master of roleplaying when you can use diplomacy and intimidation without the GM ever making you roll.

Silly answer:

You know that you're a master chief when you can fall from space without a parachute.

You know you're a villain when you can not only convince the hero team that you're the victim and the hero is the actual bad guy, but also convince the heroes that they've been possessed by the same spirits of evil that overcame the titular paladin, and the only way they can free themselves is to burn themselves at the stake.

(This actually happened at a LARP I was in. The player was so smooth, he was *scary*. Several of the hero players even thanked the villain for the help.)

and put it where? They don't have a need for extra powers and they don't have a container to hold the villain's powers.

I do hope the last comic explains what the point of this whole arc was from the point of view of the players. Playing the bad guys is one thing. Playing the bad guys who get beaten up by the DMPCs is another. But playing the bad guys who get beaten up by the DMPCs again and again and again, as that 'first session' comment implies? Even in PARANOIA, the intent isn't for the GM to unleash the TPKs; that's just the motivation for the players to beat him to it.

Well, maybe it was the setup for a heroes vs villains campaign where they play each team against the other, switching off now and then to keep the plotlines fresh.
Specter 22nd Mar 2016, 1:12 PM edit delete reply
Specter
If I was a bad guy who just got beaten, I'd probably try to convince the super heroes if I could go home. Get ready for my day job, be with the family, something like that. I only say because I can't help but think that there are probably some villains who have that stuff, even if they do try to rob banks or steal classified research.

Besides, if they did they'd now have confirmation on who I am (as a civilian at least).
Fridge 22nd Mar 2016, 11:24 PM edit delete reply
This would never freaking work in a real life game. Because, alright. So you get those guys who want to "win" at the game, and you get those guys who want to roleplay at all costs, which is fine because the "win" people will push the plot along nicely, and the "roleplay" team will fluff it out nicely as they go along. Usually, the two work together because, hey, the good guys win in the end.

But being the bad guys would detonate the table in a horrible nuclear blast. Friends would be lost in the fighting between these two groups. And add in the thought that those guys who are trying to win are /actually/ being held back by the people there to roleplay, and it just gets awful quick.

Plus, the whole point Fred makes about every "Issue" ending in a TPK, which is kinda awful, but I can see some dwarf fortress fans being a sport about it.
