Uh-oh. Tirek has some Good Faces to screencap. He's low-key very fun to write. For someone who's clearly best as a steamrolling bruiser, he's obviously put points into Charisma, giving him an interesting dichotomy. Oh no. Oh no.

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

He's greatest weapon has always been his sliver snake tongue.

Is this the creative-writing equivalent of "Oh no he's hot"?

Gotta love it though, when you find a fictional character that just 'clicks' like that :3

The face expressions ares always a fun treat when doing these comics. The first three panels are gold.

So... Flattery... Good or Bad? To those experts around here, what can you say about flattery? Does it work? Is too much sometimes something bad? Are you the type to use flattery or get it?

So Trek had an extra free 14 so he put in charisma

I think in standard D&D, Tirek might class as a dragon disciple sorcerer or equivalent. High Charisma build, but beefy blaster

Throw in some Eldritch Knight after the 4 levels of Dragon Disciple and you got a beefy magic man. ...in Pathfinder, at least. Idk about D&D.

for d&d 5e I'd say do 18 levels of Giant Soul Sorcerer, they get an ability that lets them grow to be Huge, along with the Enlarge/Reduce spell to become Gargantuan, plus you get Counterspell to shut down other people's magic

Discord has shown in comic so far they're particularly fond of mostly trying to be a xanatos: Charming, Witty, and most of all, twelve steps ahead of everyone. Anyone getting to their perceived level tends to irritate him to some degree. I'm semi-suspicious that it might stem that they aren't exactly comfortable outside of their established box. In this case, they like to be in control of things, because it allows them to sit where they know how to behave. Stepping outside of that (from GM in previous games to player here [I'm still barely convinced they are a co-gm, though I wont' go into that here]), causes a dissonance from the 'seat' they enjoy. In turn, if someone is capable of keeping pace with them, for whatever reason, Discord has so far reacted in a way that tends to suggest (at least by my reading) a sort of flinch - perhaps subconsciously threatened by a rival, but consciously turning it into general disappointment since it kills the endorphin rush they get from control. Or in short, Discord (the player), despite playing an avatar of chaos, hates when things leave their ordered little boxes...

At least, that has been my take so far. Feel free to disagree.

Seems pretty accurate to both Discord the player, and to a degree, Discord the show character.
