Guest Rain Delay, by the very talented Maddie AKA GenericBunnyGirl, who's responsible for the webcomic, Least Likely Magical Girl. She's offered to do a short series of strips for me to share with you during my hiatus, and as a fan of her work myself, I'm very excited to see where it goes. I hope you'll all enjoy it too! ^_^

And of course, you should all check out Maddie's comic too:

Ah, it's a rescue the hostages plot. I'm hoping there will be some sort of twist.

Also, I think there's a typo in the last panel: "And evil alchemist" should be "An evil alchemist."

Is it just me or have a lot more Trans people been getting into D&D and similar games recently?

I've been playing for years, even before I was out to myself, and with friends who turned out to be queer as well!

I think D&D, like video games, attracts trans people because it lets you live an experience without having to use your real body. I played a LOT of D&D as a girl before I had the guts to live my real life as one lol

We have been in RPGs for a long time... We just didn't tell you we were.

Recently? Probably since tabletop gaming came into existence, I would bet.

Is it so surprising that trans people would take to a hobby where they can be who they want to be? I was never really into tabletop myself, but video games offered me that same freedom my whole life.

I really want to play but don't have anyone to play with.

There are plenty of sites that allow you to play online, though it's certainly not the same experience as sitting around an actual table with a group of other people. I frequent rpol.net myself, but Roll20 is quite good if you can get used to the interface.

I wouldn't mind playing it myself, do you have the set?

To be fair, I’ve been playing DnD since 2e, though I was still masquerading as a boy back then.

Like the others have said, trans and NB and Fluid folk have partaken in such activities since its inception, it just didn’t get publicized. We’re only now entering an era where we can’t be systemically erased as easily and our voices are growing louder, if not stronger.

"Dirty pool"... Now there's a Curious turn of phrase I've never heard before.

@Queen Wolfen

Saying "dirty pool" is like saying "that's a dirty move" or "cheap shot", to imply it wasn't really fair.

After kidnapping the towns most beautiful maiden and several others, the villagers have hired several mercenaries to rescue her

My thoughts:

- Why hire mercenaries? Can’t they just let her go? Oh, I see, you mean the alchemist kidnapped her!

- Hmm, so the alchemist kidnapped the beautiful maiden, and several others, but the villagers are only paying to rescue the maiden? All of the other kidnapping victims are on their own? Wow. Nice to be beautiful, I guess.

- Oh, I see the next bit of text says that we should rescue the prisoners, plural. I guess they’re not SOL after all. But apparently we are to “rescue” the prisoners, but “save” the maiden. I’m confused?

- There is a punctuation mark called an “apostrophe” that you might want to try using someday. I see four places in this strip where one is missing. Ah, and one place where it’s not missing, so you do know about them. Well, keep practicing.

Ehhh … I was in a pissy mood and bad writing bugs me … they’re legitimate criticisms but I could have been more tactful.

@Tualha, fair! All in the spirit of good joking around 😁

Ultimately as webcomics aren’t generally a source of great literature - but fun, interesting, and insightful stories. While it would be nice to have good stories and correct grammar, I think people from all walks (be they undereducated, non-English, dyslexic, or just not that into fine details) should be able to share their stories too 😊

Trust me I come from a very pedantic family so I have to try REALLY HARD to let things slide too 😂😂

A bunch of queer people playing D&D? I have never felt so represented XD
Drake Zephyr 16th Jul 2018, 7:40 PM edit delete reply
Correction, only 3/4 of them are queer.
