Camilla: You, sir, should unmask.
Cassilda: Indeed it’s time. We all have laid aside disguise but you.
Stranger: I wear no mask.
Camilla: (Terrified, aside to Cassilda.) No mask? No mask!

My friend Alex started a new blog to chronicle his adventures as a newbie DM as he teaches his friends how to play D&D. His blog is still a work in progress, but it’s going to be really neat once he has it up and running!
Check it out: Dungeons-And-Dumbasses!
Was looking at a batch of Jake Parker’s awesome drawings earlier this weekend and wanted to try working in some ideas from that, so here are some AD&D styled kobolds. Seriously old-skool, man. I’m also inking using one of the Staedler pen liners and really like it ‘way more than the Microns.
Some folks asked me to Tumblr yesterday’s DORK TOWER.
Consider it Tumblr’d!
BTW: The line “Boobs don’t work that way” in the comic is a nod to one of my favorite Tumblrs: http://boobsdontworkthatway.tumblr.com
K is for Kobold.
I’m still cracking up because last night 4yo son joined our Pathfinder party and his character is a strapping human warrior named Sword Handle and ironically given that he’s level 1 (and 4 years old) he was the most effective member of our party because he has +11 to Intimidate and a +8 masterwork cold iron longsword which let me tell you how useful that was against the gremlins we were fighting off.
And you should have seen the faces he pulled when he was Intimidating them and then he told us this Long and Tragic Tale about how his father had been killed it was V SRS BUSINESS.

‘Calvin & Hobbes’ Creator Bill Watterson Releases First New Cartoon In 19 Years
By Andy Khouri
Immense kudos to filmmakers Dave Kellett and Fred Schroeder, whose new documentary Stripped was apparently so awesome that it coaxed the famously elusive Bill Watterson to come out of retirement and create his first cartoon (that the public has seen, anyway) since concluding his work on Calvin & Hobbes nearly 20 years ago. The piece will serve as the poster for the film, which profiles the endangered art form of newspaper comic strips in the current economic and media climates.
