Will Save World for Gold is the story many D&D geeks have thought about telling; take a group of mismatched adventurers (former D&D characters, ideally) and send them off to do heroic and comedic things. One of them will be highly incompetent. One of them will be evil. One of them will be a girl (maybe). It’s a simple formula, but hey, it’s worked before. Surely it can work again.

I have many stories I’d like to tell that are at least slightly less clichéd than WSWFG, but I wanted to start with something that I know will find an audience.

The events and characters in the comic are intended to be recreatable with the Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition ruleset. The main cast are all based on previous D&D characters of mine, though only Odivallus and Ardon ever saw play, and only Ardon was ever intended for a 4e game. If you pay close enough attention, you might eventually be able to piece together full character sheets for all of them. Challenge issued, internet. Challenge issued.

The pixel art, as well as certain design elements, were chosen to lampoon the widely- and wrongly-held concept that D&D 4e is just a video game with really bad graphics.

The comic updates Monday to Friday and is drawn entirely in MS Paint.
