    You can’t find licorice candy easly here in Brazil – not that I look for it, since a Danish friend gave me some licorice drops she liked (from Denmark) and there they make it salty.. I think its an acquired taste, because I never wanted to taste it again (nothing against who likes it) >_<

    I must respectfully disagree. That’s only one item any adventurer needs, along with the 10ft. pole. Those 2 things make an adventurer unstoppable

    Dustin’s character is a lot more agile when his armor is just decorated on. Nice.

    Don’t forget the ten foot pole. Can’t check for traps without a pole.

    Every adventurer needs 50 feet of Rope (minimum) that and a towel.

    But, but, What about the 10′ pole?

    No old school adventurer ever leaves home without one.

    In all my time gaming, I’ve found that any player who adds 50′ of rope to his character sheet without prompting for gear is going to be one of those bastards I don’t have to hold back for.

    I can’t help but feel like this is the best example of that I’ve ever seen.

    πŸ™‚ Post from Alina on a previous comic:

    “Get ready for Gingerbread!!

    If you are looking for a fun, quick adventure that’s great for families this holiday season, consider giving The Secret Lives of Gingerbread Men a try! Character creation is very fun (you get a little outline of a gingerbread man to decorate with candies that fuel your powers!), and the game combines utter wackiness with those warm, fuzzy Christmas feelings.

    Dustin is just happy that he still has his armor, even if it is made out of candy now.

    ALso, where the fudge did that exposition cookie go? …Come to think of it, why was he there in the first place? Awfully convenient he just happened to be right where the candy portal took them to, wasn’t it?

    Dustin rolls a 1. That’s how the cookie fumbles.

    Hands up who forgot to bring the rope to a Warhammer Quest Dungeon and had to schlep back to town to fish the Dwarf out when he fell in a hole?

    Why couldn’t this be done with the Shadowrun storyline?

    OK you have the rope, but where is your 10 foot pole?
