You know what I love most about gaming? It teaches you to play nice with others. Sure you’re a creative genius with an awesome character concept and an above-average damage output, but then so are the other Cheeto-encrusted dorks in your mom’s basement. The trick to a successful game is making sure that all those kooky characters and creative ideas come together to form something awesome. It’s sort of like forming Voltron, but with less paladin stacking.

In any case, as long as we’re on the subject of Cheeto-encrusted dorks, I’d like to thank our pals at DnDUI for the art trade. They are precisely the sort of drunken reprobates that most likely play Fighter, Cleric, Wizard, and Thief out in the real world. You couldn’t ask for better bunch of collaborators, either in the webcomic business or (if their awesome podcast is anything to go by) at the gaming table.

Merry Christmahanakwanzika to all you good little adventurers out there. We hope that Santa brings you a shiny new mini/dice set/source book this year, and that each and every one of you crits the New Year for max damage.
