    Order of the Stick is a webcomic I never got into reading because every page of it I've ever been shown has reams of text across literally dozens of dialogue balloons coupled with inoffensive but not at all captivating art. I've certainly seen and forgotten plenty of comics that are even more visually unappealing, but Order of the Stick has got to be up there in terms of works utilizing its medium in a manner that is immediately to its disadvantage towards prospective audience members of it.

    Which is a shame, because the funny examples of Order of the Stick I have actually parsed through have been genuinely entertaining based on their dialogue.

    I think a lot of this is just your personal taste. Simple iconic art has been shown to be much easier for people to identify with, and the simple page layouts mean people don't really get confused while reading it. There's a lot of text now, but the earlier pages were much less dense, it's grown more so as the characters and plots have gotten more complex. There's a lot of text, but it flows pretty well. I would read any number of OOTS strips over one of the erfworld text updates.

    Primed runes would work for rifles and pistols

    I had a real convoluted character I came up with for a friends campaign who had a large pistol, and the hammer of the pistol was inscribed with a partial magic circle. And then his hand crafted bullets had the other part of the magic circle on the back of the shell casing, so when the hammer struck the bullet it would complete the magic circle and cast the spell.

    So effectively he was a wizard with some weird quirks to his mechanics, using things like bullets that shot fireballs and lightning bolts.

    I did a very similar thing! My character was a steampunk cyborg gunslinger who would have the hammer stamp the last piece of an arcane glyph on the shell. Except he was just using it to open a conduit to the Demi-Elemental Plane of Lightning and propel otherwise ordinary bullets via magnetic charge, meaning he could still fire normally in the vacuum of the interdimensional void where all his crew's hyperspace train robberies took place.

    He also coined the phrase "like a bayonet on a sniper rifle" among my players, meaning a thing that looks stupid and impractical until you remember that Wizards are a thing.

    Realizing lately that I don't really trust or respect basically any of the moderators here. So, good luck with life, friends! Hit me up on Twitter @DesertLeviathan

    Gotta say as powers go that's one of the best though especially if there's no narrative imposed limits.

I would read any number of OOTS strips over one of the erfworld text updates.

    I've thought about this before, because some comics which I have enjoyed reading were immensely wordy: Watchmen is chock full of text complete with illustration-free straight prose following some chapters, and Strong Female Protagonist can certainly challenge if not sometimes beat OotS in sheer word count per page. Admittedly, I've been reading SFP for a lot longer than I've read OotS, so the amount of investment I've already put into it definitely biases how willing I am to read it. That said, I would never hesitate to recommend SFP to somebody even with the caveat of it being text-heavy.

    I don't dislike the art of OotS at all, and in the same line of thought that you mention regarding its simplicity, I have found it more appealing than many other comics with much more detailed art... but that's not the same as finding it sufficiently appealing to fill me with a desire to pursue it. In the stickman vein, I've never failed to find xkcd's stickmen appealing. I'm ok with highly abstract art just as I'm ok with highly concrete depictions.

    All of this I realize now reads as a defense of my own tastes against my claims about OotS, but I do think that some of how OotS is just isn't going to grab people... and that's ok! It very thoroughly has its own identity in its writing and its style. I could see a tiny thumbnail of an OotS page and be able to say "that looks like OotS", and that is absolutely a good thing. I could read a bunch of dialogue balloons without any of the art and say "that reads like OotS". And I could do both of those in spite of how little OotS I have actually read. I think that's an immensely good quality, and I wouldn't ever ask them to change it just because it doesn't grab me.

    In conclusion ONE PUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNCH

    Thirding here. Mine had a triple-barreled gun with the grooves inside of each being a distorted magical circle, so whichever bullet went out gained an elemental charge. For fun times, pull all three at once. Hell of a recoil on that move though. And oftentimes borderline ineffective without catching the other players off guard because so many goddamn elemental mages/knights/hybrid of the two.

    Also I knew the girl would try to kill the god horrorthing with whatever her wish was, just by her social views. Too bad she didn't get a chance to grow up and realize they're awful views before getting the means to enact them. So now she's going to be a horrific monster the other kid's going to have to stop somehow.
    I have always envisioned the ability not to create anything I want, but rather summon the characters I've created. Then I dismiss that wish because 1) free will is a big thing to me and so 2) they would all try to fucking murder me.
