A Comic from "The Dragon #1" - RPG Blog Carnival

Humor in RPG gaming has had a long long history. Me thinks it may have taken a back seat to some of the ultra-serious fantasy seen in more modern iterations of D&D (i.e. where are the funnys in the Core Books?). So, as part of my tiny contribution to this month's RPG Blog Carnival on Humor... lets look back at the first issue of Dragon... errr.. "The Dragon" as it was called then. Way back in '76 ... even then they were concerned with the same issues; although today we might be embracing that dragon.

It still makes me chuckle... Fat elves getting stoned on god knows what and drunk on Tree Frog Beer...

In other random news... Amazon seems to have dropped the price of Open Game Table by 10% to $20.65. I have no idea why.. but, what the heck why not!?
