Link roundup

1. New book features "an absurd comedy about a group of adventurers (elf, halfling, bard, dwarf, assassin, thief) going through an existential crisis after having discovered that they are really just pre-rolled characters living inside of a classic AD&D role playing game." (Probably NSFW.)

2. Here's what the latest batch of kidrobot's Dunnys look like.

3. Another reminder of how little fun Comicon is.

*Buy Kidrobot toys at eBay.


  1. If you think Comic-Con sounds lame, try Tokyo Game Show. I know it's lots of American gamers' dream to go, but they have an entirely different definition of 'crowded' in Asia. I've never been to Comic-Con, but at least you are seeing famous people and such. At TGS you are expected to wait 3-4 hours to play the same game you'll be playing at home in a few months. The spectacle is neat, but you don't have to be there.

  2. Ya know, comic con is not for everyone. But to be fair, a LOT of people obviously do find it very fun indeed, including me. Nobody HAS to be at these types of events, but there's a lot to see and if you're a very enthusiastic fan you might get a thrill out of seeing your favorite artists, actors, writers and directors in person, even if you have to stand in line for hours to do so. I've been to the SDCC three times and every time I have had a total blast. =)
