With this strip we start to see where Sam’s game is deviating from traditional D&D.

I am a huge fan of the Final Fantasy series and while Natural 20’s are awesome, I love the idea of taking that idea and turning up the volume a little bit with each character rocking a critical maneuver that, admittedly, is a little bit broken.

I’m sure some will disagree with that mindset. Brett does and we’ll see what comes of it on Wednesday. I’d also stress that folks give this a little time to play out. I am coming at this as Sam’s first real attempt to create something. Of course it will be a little rough around the edges at first. Patience… Patience.

Also, I’d like to wish all of the hard working GMs out there a happy GM’s Day today. I hope your players wish you one as well and possibly thank you with tokens of appreciation (food, presents, sexual favors, etc.)

(Oh, in case some folks are wondering, Vella’s appearance will return to normal after her turn ends)
