Maybe this is just me, but in every group I've ever done any tabletop gaming with, it's always been a bit of a faux pas to show up in costume/cosplay.

I can only imagine it's be worse if the outfit was from the entirely wrong sort of game.

It's not that I have any problem with dressing up or cosplay in-and-of-itself, but it's just always been kind of... I dunno.. lame?, to do it at a tabletop RPG night.

Could be we're all just cranky old-timers who hate fun, I guess.


Sorry the comic is a few (see: many) hours late, but that walk across town lines took more out of me than I though.

I do not do well in the sun, so I spent a good chunk of that night feel feverish with vertigo. Was no good times.

See you all on Tuesday!

Comic is a touch late thanks to the power cutting out for awhile there, been working on it today though, hoping to have it up by tonight/early tomorrow morning.

Thanks for the patience!

hahah - ive never had THAT happen at a game .. yet. :D

You now have a new plan for screwing with your tabletop group!


Really though, I've never really had it happen to such an extreme extent, but there've been times where a new person to the group has shown up with a foam sword/axe or something, and elf ears are not unknown to me.

It's just... I don't know, weird.

Not unless shes .. really ... really cute :D and seriously willing to listen or something. i dont know a single red blooded gamer that would throw a cute girl out ( unless she did something so horrible its not even a option )

Well, that can go either way really. If they're introverted JUST enough, their awkward shame from just being AROUND an attractive girl might make them go all mob-mentality about kicking her out for comfort's sake.

Kind of a more uncomfortable, totally socially inept form of the "No girlfriend/boyfriend" rule at games (which has always annoyed me, even if I sorta get it).

I was in a group with no less than 3 girls 2 guys and sometimes even more biggest group I GMed was 14 people privately ( NEVER AGAIN!! ) I prefer 4 to 6

Five players, including the DM, is my optimal group size.

Any more than that, and it tends to throw off the 70%/30% gaming-to-bullshitting ratio, any less and you have a bit of a crippled party.

I want her costume. Also, I so would do this...

yeah I hate it with the BS to gaming ratio goes out of wack >_<

i got free magic items for dressing up. the better the costume the better the item was, you only have a couple of shots.

Like, as a house rule?

That must be one seriously into cosplay group. The closest to dressing up my friends and I ever got to was getting into armor and whacking each other with heavy sticks.

I didn't say we were always very bright.

i think it's because we just muck around a lot. this is the same group of people who decided to narwhal a car.

imagine, you wake up one day and find that your car is now a narwhal.

that's the kind of people i game with
