Guest Author's Note: "Joining a new group can be a harrowing experience, even if it's for a night, even for a one-shot. You never know what you’re gonna get. Personally, I think it's good to have safety valves in play, to know what you will and won't put up with, and to be prepared to just quit and leave if necessary. But I also think that it's good to try these somewhat scary things, because you never know what you're gonna get! If I hadn't tried (and failed at first) to get into Fallout is Dragons, I’d be down several highly valued friends, a few misadventures, a lot of practice, and an attempt to write a guest arc for a web comic.

Man, the Holiday Season gets me really mushy, huh?”

Notice: Guest comic submissions are open! Guidelines here. Deadline: January 27th, 2023.

I'm enjoying the story, but in these panels the straight divider between right and left along with the staggered up and down (the three similarly colored pictures on the right and darker ones on the left didn't help matters) make it seem like the right side should be read down rather than right left down. (if that's not clear, I read 1, 3,5 double take 1,3,5 realized my error)

Yeah, I did the same thing. I had to reread it a second time, where I accidentalky read it like a Manga. The third time I got it right, though and the fourth time was just to make sure I didn't miss anything.

Sorry. I was trying to keep the layout a bit different, and got experimental. Apologies for the difficulty.

I didn't have such safety valves when I joined different groups in the 90s. Thankfully the groups were all filled with good people and I eventually settled down with a fun one that likes playing Earthdawn and GURPS 3e. By the turn of the century I started by own group with D&D 3rd edition when I came out. That's the "My old group" that I frequently talk about fondly.

If I get lucky, I might get invited to a game...

I gave my niece the RuneQuest:Glorantha boxed set (Primary rule book, bestiary, and GM supplements*) for Christmas -- and told her that if her group actually tries it I'd like in... Will be a bit of a drive -- I'm near Grand Rapids, she lives in Kalamazoo.

* I looked at the PDF files [buying the print edition gets one the PDFs too]... Boy did they up the difficulty level for the Apple Lane adventures. Apple Lane used to be a introductory scenario [the big adventure was to defend the pawnshop from a tribe of baboons trying to recover some artifact]. Now? the big adventure pits one against a /dream dragon/ (think "Creature from the Id" in "Forbidden Planet" -- real dragons tend to sleep for centuries, but their dreams may manifest in reality)

I know that feeling. The next game I'm thinking of running is a bit non-mainstream, and I'm likely to have to pitch it to a mostly new group due to RL circumstances whittling down my old one. Details posted to the Discord.
