Actual D&D??

One of the reasons the main characters hang out with each other (as per the title of the comic) is of coarse, every Saturday they get together and play Dungeons and Dragons. I noticed that D&D itself was hardly mentioned at all, which is a little odd for a comic actually named "Roll To Save". So I've decided while we tackle other stories, we'll periodically be treated to small arcs that show the characters playing some good old fashion tabletop.

When I originally wrote the script for this arc, I wanted to include a small window at the bottom of each panel, displaying the various rolls each player does, sort of like in Baldur's Gate. After a while, I figured it might be too much so I opted to have it play out like a regular strip but with players dressed and looking like their respective characters.

Oh look! Four handsome, roguish and playful looking half-orc quadruplets. I wonder where we might have heard of them before...
For those of you who are avid readers of Tailsteak's Leftover Soup, you may recall a D&D game involving Ellen, Max, Gina, Nicole and DMed by Lily in where they bump into said quadruplets. (LS# 930) I thought it would be a neat reference. However, just because John requests some faithful NPC companions, doesn't mean it won't come at a price...

@Gamegrub: That's certainly a possibility. Especially because in the next page Jo explains why he decided to go through with his drunk promise to John.

Oooh! Good question! Dunno if I'm at liberty to say which yet though =P

....At least those 4 orcs with max cha mean they'll be able to Aid Another with negotiations for +6 to the one who ends up fully doing Diplomacy....

Also, does this mean that one of the 5 from LS were at the wedding? Or is this a case of Great Minds Think Alike?
