Four Webcomics from hairylarry's blog

Here's four webcomics that I like and some of them even have something to do with gaming.


I don't like rom com movies much. In fact I don't like movies much. I prefer my TV in small doses. But I do read a lot of coming of age fantasy and science fiction which is kind of close to rom coms. Especially "The Wheel Of Time" which I am definitely planning on rereading, all 14 volumes.


But it turns out that I like rom com webcomics. I guess the dosage is about right.


"Questionable Content" is alternative history science fiction. It's present day but in the recent past Hannelore's dad discovered true AI and built it into robots. So it's a rom com with robots. (Shades of Isaac Asimov) It's actually my current fav and it turns out I must have started it in the middle because when I went to episode 1 to link here I hadn't read it. But there is an AI robot right at the start. Plus rom com. It is a lot different than the more recent episodes but I'm restarting at the top and you can too.

Oh yeah, it's drawn by J. Jacques. And it's 5 days a week.


Dumbing Of Age is a College Webcomic by David M. Willis. This is my latest fav and it's actual contemporary fiction rom com. It has more about cartoons than about games although D&D does get an occasional mention. Big on superheroes too with an actual superhero character who is actually just a shy girl with tendencies towards violence.


7 days a week. Yaaaaaay!

The absolute best webcomic ever is all about D&D with in jokes right from the first episode. The Order Of The Stick is about an adventuring party drawn as stick figures. If you haven't already read this it's a treat. The only bad thing about it is that it's a weekly so I save it for my weekend reading. It's by Rich Burlew.

And my new find is Gunnerkrigg Court. It's also in a school setting but so far not a rom com. Definitely fantasy and I'm not far enough into it to tell you much more. Except that I like it so far. Not sure of the publishing schedule but the art is great and it's drawn by Tom Siddell.

Please add your favorite webcomics in the comments. Especially if they are about gaming.


Thanks

Do you have any other favorite webcomics? I love that part where you're going through the archives and it seems like the goodness will never end. But before you notice you're waiting for the next episode and you only get to enjoy one or two episodes at a time.Do you have any other favorite webcomics?

There was one I enjoyed (Sluggy Freelance) until it went a bit too far off the rails for my tastes.

I"m enjoying it too. Kind of a modern day fantasy with gothic art.

With a hint of native American flavouring that is kind of nice too, yes.

    This heres a small attempt at trying to bring a more 3.5e esque casting system to 5e. Its mostly experimental here, but I think it turned out to be a fun subclass.

    But yeah, its sorta a 1|1/3rd caster, gaining the regular spells of a wizard plus a few extra lower level spells per day, with the downside being those spells use vancian casting.

    I might re-use this system for something else in the future at some point, probably for a full class or variant spellcasting system, like the Spell Points in the DMG.

    Hello all!

    This is the free pack for the Rustic Furniture assets 2! Containing 26 assets all ready to go and use to make an awesome looking house or building in your TTRPG games!

    In the complete pack of the assets, you will find over 130+ assets, many are combinations of the assets I made last week but there are also a bunch of new assets that people requested, including tankards, glasses, wine bottles, rubbish, bowls etc!

    With the combined assets, like the setup tables you should be able to make an interesting room super quickly without having to place down each asset! If I do more packs in the future I think having these options is invaluable for creating maps and encounters quickly so I will definitely do more :) 

    This pack is available for free over on patreon!

    We had caeora as a guest on Inspired Unreality.

    Compete to be the best at the Holiday tournament. Jousting, archery, sword fighting! Or grab a cup of warm mulled wine and enjoy watching the competition.

    I LOVE the Riyria book series, so when I started making a tournament map, my mind kept coming back to the Wintertide tournament in book 5. And I decided I needed to do a snowy version for a holiday tournament 🙂 You can get this free on http://AngelaMaps.com with a small logo.

    There is also a summer version and night versions available, as well as the Foundry VTT and Fantasy Grounds versions on my Patreon.

    A couple cards from this year’s swordtember! Doing this deck is part of the reason I did multiple weapon types this year.
