Order of the Stick

There is a warm place reserved in my heart for the geekery that got me through junior high and high school. That particular brand of pseudo-social activity was Dungeons and Dragons, and, I loved it despite its quirks. Which is why I have such appreciation for comics that make fun of it in a warm and knowing way.

Order of the Stick chronicles a band of merry stick figures, an adventuring party, if you will, who are playing a somewhat self-aware game of dungeons and dragons.

When my friends and I played D&D, Game mechanics oft-times caused us to behave oddly, and Rich Burlew (maker of the comic) captures oddities like that with comical genius.

Check out this comic if you’re the sort of person who can appreciate jokes about failing your spot check.
