    Is the sentient acid from the stomach of the Everworm?

    Don't eternally slow digestive systems actually have a terrible track record of keeping plucky characters down?

    why would you assume they're connected in any way?

    I never played much D&D, but I remember one dude telling me about a trap his DM made

    I forget the details of how it worked, but it involved a tiny room, a chest, and a big bag of holding with a blue whale inside

    also this comic is solid. I like basically all the comics where the premise is "Tycho presents ideas"

    Now it is obvious that the sentient acid is the bat milk, which is also what the player is eternally digested in.

    This is the infamous shattering acid.


    It is amused at your palty attempts at "shielding".

    The Gold and Jewels are actually feces


    they are the digested remains of previous players.

    I would just perception check 20 that shit. It's a trap. Telekinesis the gold off the top.

    Then I'd cut the chalice off the table and it'd be mine.

    Actually though, I think "Tycho presents" comics like this are fucking genius. They're the Yang to Gabe's comics like Sophie's choice.

    No, that was directed at Squall, and corroborating your assertion.

    You've done well here, son. Keep up the good work and there'll be a little something extra for you at the end of the Fiscal Year.

    These are the words that precede critical failures.

    Edit: Well, except for the last bit, the last bit was erudite and insightful.

    A little slow on the uptake, kid, but you're headed in the right direction.

    Stick with me and well let's face it I'll probably end up pushing you into a pit of sentient acid.

    the trick is to realise that true gold comes from within, not from pits and dungeons

    this is where one can also find true chutes greased with magical lubricant

    You look just like a red-breasted robin in that out fit.

    Why, I think that is what I shall name you! Robin!

    Now go stand with the neon red, green, and yellow suit over there where all the men with guns can see you.
