Exclam! Comic 31: Signs Your Party Will Not Survive the First Encounter Part 3
Some alternate ending dialog:
- GM: “Why would you need to buy fat, lye, and nitric acid?”
- Me: “Uh, to make a cake. For the Duke we’re supposed to be meeting.”
- GM: “Doesn’t your character hate the Duke?”
- Me: “I don’t think that’s relevant right now.”
The idea came about from conversations I was having with fellow players in a campaign on possible regicide options. When the idea of explosives came up and how to create them in a medieval environment, I came up with some ideas drawn from my forays into organic chemistry. (These conversations may also probably have put me on every national security watch list ever.) In any case, they led to the strip you see before you. Also, don’t try the nitroglycerin recipe at home. Please.
