Reaction:
I've loved this series from the first time I found it. I didn't start reading until it had at least 50 strips, but I quickly caught up and was hooked for years.

Imagine a world that is populated by the PCs, NPCs and inhuman races you inhabit and meet in a standard role playing game. What kinds of discussion might they have? How does that role playing structure affect how they live their lives? Very funny stuff.
