    This is what happens when you let Gabe read books, he thinks it's a stillsuit.

    The D&D character he's played for about a decade in the Acquisitions Incorporated games, Jim Darkmagic.

    EDIT: I mean, it's what the previous comic was referring to:

    Has Jim Darkmagic's lore evolved considerably in the Acq Inc Games? I'm familiar with him from the comics here. And let me tell you: "competent, capable individual" doesn't spring to mind when I think of Jim Darkmagic.

    You mean his lore as a magician, or his lore as a sexomancer?

    He's still a goofball/dumb ass (as the most recent PAX game highlighted), but he's slowly become more powerful, and has gotten pretty solid in the combat portion of his job responsibilities. Some of it is likely just the character level getting high enough to give him lots of tools to use, but Mike is now a veteran player and DM, so he's gotten a lot better at figuring out what to do in certain situations.

    Even in his younger day Jim Darkmagic had the uncanny ability to roll a Natural 20 while Binwin and Co bumbled around.

    Cheer up, Gabe (your makeup is running)
    Admittedly not one of their better songs, but the title always gave me a chuckle. It really has nothing to do with the lyrics of the song, but supposedly was originally just an in-development placeholder name poking fun at the tone of the rest of the album.

    If you're curious about my icon; it's an update of the early Lego Castle theme's "Black Falcons" faction.
