D&D Context Edit

  • A Bag of Tricks can produce only certain animals, according to its color. It appeared that Roy had the gray version, which produced small rodents, however it produced a rhinoceros. The title of the comic urges the readers to ignore this fact.
  • Rapid Shot is a feat that allows a character to shoot an extra arrow, but all arrows have less chance to hit that turn.
