New Webcomic – Order of the Stick

Order of the Stick

Order of the Stick

OK, this one has been around for quite some time. I’ve been reading Order of the Stick and I’ve been enjoying it. The comic is drawn and authored in a deliberate stick figure style by Rich Burlew. It’s based on fantasy RPGs like Dungeons and Dragons as well as today’s D20 system. The comic goes back to 2003 so you;ve got a bit of reading to get up to date.

And I’ve already gone ahead and added to the links page. You can look at the other webcomics that I read there.

New Webcomic – Nodwick

 

Nodwick

Nodwick

Another new webcomic added to the link list.  We have added in Norwick.  It’s Dungeons and Dragons based, having appeared for eons in the old Dragon Magazine that’s now currently changing formats.
New comics appear to hit once a week.  Not sure of the day and I’m
too tired to go digging around the website. (Plus the designer appears
to like opening link in new windows.  I hate it when sites are
designed like that.)

The comic is about a simple henchman who travels with three characters
but runs into all sorts of trouble, normally because of the actions of
the characters.

There’s a healthy backlist of comics so it’ll take you a while to read
through them all.  Not many that connect together in an arc so you
can poke around in there.  Give it a read today. 🙂

Download Dragon Magazine

Gotta admit that I’m not big on warez but considering all of these are out of print, very few of them are available as *.pdf download, and this is really the only way to get them, here’s the first 240 Dragon Magazines available for download from rapidshare.com and megaupload.

edit: Part #2 of this list is over here.

So long Dragon Magazine

“Today the internet is where people go to get this kind of information,” said Scott Rouse, Senior Brand Manager of DUNGEONS & DRAGONS®, Wizards of the Coast. “By moving to an online model we are using a delivery system that broadens our reach to fans around the world. Paizo has been a great partner to us over the last several years. We wish them well on their future endeavors.”

“We at Paizo are very proud of the work we’ve put into DRAGON and DUNGEON during the past five years,” says Erik Mona, Paizo’s Publisher and Editor in Chief of DRAGON. “While we’ll all miss working on these venerable magazines, our talented editorial and art staff as well as our phenomenal team of freelance contributors will continue to produce…

Someone got me a Christmas Present

Just a quick public thank you to BlogLily. She picked up the four *.pdf’s I had listed on my wishlist and had RPGNow send me the links so I could download them. As some of you know, I lost all of my old books and gaming material when Angie split back in 1999. I’ve been slowly rebuilding my collection but it’s a pain. Some of the stuff I’ve been able to get off of ebay but it’s been hit and miss on titles as well as scam artists.

If I’ve helped you in the past and you would like to do something nice for me, RPGNow does Gift Certificates in $10 amounts. The address to send them in RPGNow’s system is tdjcbe ( at ) gmail ( dot ) com or the account number #99553. Heck, you can even follow that link I have there to eBay as it’s an affliate link and I get a few pennies from it if you bid or even sign up with them.

My thanks again to BlogLily. 🙂
