So this is an Ad I drew for the comic, the skyscrapper kind.
When Bjorn and I started this, we talked about how Bjorn - though he doesn’t always play one - would probably be an evil wizard in DnD. A mastermind, and possibly my greatest rival. We couldn’t pin me down, maybe a druid.
We talked about that at length recently, when we went to a cabin in Vermont for our friend’s bachelor party. I planned it, it was rad. But part of it was playing DnD. I had them roll themselves, and we talked for a long time about why each one of them should be whatever class - I was the archangel that gave them the quest.
The quest was for the groom-to-be and his friends to rescue the bride-to-be. She had been kidnapped, hours before the wedding, by an evil sorceress known as the Queen of Blades.
Aside: The Queen was actually one of my ancient enemies (I had never revealed to my friends my true form) and I couldn’t destroy her so I trapped her soul in a warforged head thousands of years ago. But she built a body and conquered Kestria, one of the Seven Floating Cities of Eltorr. She was a vain woman and wanted her Warforged body to be beautiful, until she could capture a woman about to be wed and essentailly steal her body.
Our heroes one, and the archangel sent them back through space and time just before the ceremony.
Long story short, DnD has such a huge impact on my art, and also my desire to make it, that I had to throw it into the Ad I made for the strip.
