What does a one-sided die look like?

And now for the real question! What is the barbarian? I mean the rest are kinds of elves, right? (Half isn't a "kind")

~A one sided die? Easy. Start with a 4 sided die and subtract the sides until there's only one left (not a two sided flat object, mind you)

I'm guessing it'd be some kind of mobius strip...

Ooo, but wouldn't that rip a hole in space and time, sucking everything into the void of nothingness? Death by one sided dice. D:

@Chronos That's the problem with Wizards, actually. They're suckers for attempting the impossible and tampering with signs saying "DO NOT TOUCH! NO SERIOUSLY, WE MEAN YOU!!"

To quote Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) in Jurassic Park
You spent so much time wondering whether you could that you never stopped to think whether you should!

It's no small secret that CRIT! is based on the D&D game the Tangent Artists play after we hold our meetings. Of course, now they can be justified as "writing sessions."

Maybe I should show dad this comic, then. He was a big D&D player.

As a matter of fact, he has a hilarious story about shooting an arrow into the head of one of his allies (a friend's character) and he rolled a zero so there was no damage. XD

So instead, the ally is walking around looking like a young Steve Martin.

If any of you are curious, CRIT! Was very much inspired by the zany comedy fantasy stylings of Terry Pratchett. If you haven't read any of his books, I strongly suggest you start. "Guards! Guards!" is a good one to start with.

Is that a book or a webcomic?

If it's a webcomic, may I have a link?

All the book chains near me (that would sell that kind of book) are closed. D:

Here's the Amazon Listing.

And here's a link for my book, Must Love Dragons which is loosely based off of "CRIT!"

Woah, you made it paperback? O_o

I thought it was just a E-novel!

Congratulations! You have received +2 respect!

Cool! It will balance out my -2 self-confidence!

It's available for both e-books (including kindle) and Paperback. (I personally prefer paperback, myself.)

I would give you more respect, but that would make my self-respect go below -99%

So is Crit about one of Hedgetrimmer's jobs?

Must Love Dragons is about Linus Weedwhacker's adventures with Morfindel and the High-Elf siblings, but there are some differences and The Book ends up going in it's own direction.

What happened is that I finished the book during a long lapse in gaming where there was a cliff-hanger with the Frost Dragon. And when we picked up the game again the plot went in an entirely different direction.

As Doc Brown (back to the future) would say
...the timeline skewed into this tangent, resulting in an alternate timeline...

I could go into detail, but it involves a lot of quantum.

So it's a similar universe that is different from the TA one?

Also, I give to you my final respect point for the Back to the Future alternate timeline reference. I'm a big fan of time-space theories.

Hense the name Chronos, meaning time in Latin.

Yeah. It's a different Universe.

Still the same people though, but with bigger character arcs.

Yes, Chronos, Father of Zeus (and 5 other gods)

I knew he was a god! I just couldn't remember whose he was. XD

Back to Crit discussion, Where did Quincy come from exactly? I mean he just kind of appeared and they just kinda accepted him.

He was a Titan, actually. A precursor to the Greek Gods. (Yeah, I know WAY too much about this).

Quince was an NPC. He's played by Steve (our GM) and he's basically there to be a human forklift/battering ram/splatterer whenever we needed one. He's the quiet shy type.

I think the others were too intimidated to say "no" when he asked to join.

I can see why they'd be intimidated.

Now, when Linus said "Don't steal anything" to Bart, was thaat because of the intimidation, or was it beause Quicy wears what amounts to a loincloth?

*L* Probably both.

Quince keeps his money (thank goodness) in a sporran. (That little doo-hickey on his chest.) It's like a change purse, but more MANLY.
