Failed A Listen Check

The Listen skill in DnD is messed up. Hearing someone talk right in front of you is DC 0. To actually understand what you hear, you need to beat the DC by 10. Average people thus only understand what's being said 1/2 the time.

Those who are familiar with the archives - all two of you - might be able to figure out why Fred's suddenly lost the ability to hear. It'll be explained next comic, naturally, but have a try anyway.

Jane's pony tail is fun to position. :D

I hate to be "that person" but are you serious? This is, like, a poor rip off of Order of the Stick. Right down to the art and the program you use to make the art.

The Program?

Sorry, but what? OotS is developed in Adobe Illustrator. WotM is developed in Inkscape.

Apart from that, the art style is the same. I acknowledge this. Your point?

hey 'that person' i dont know what its called for comics but its called fan fiction or tribute in other stuff - therefore not a rip off as author acknowledges both Order of the Stick and D&D - epic fail on the rip off tag

Transcript:

Fred: Brilliant.
Jane: Come on. Hold Person's got a short duration - we've only got a few rounds.
Jane: With any luck, we should have three or four rounds before the spell wears off. Hopefully we can reach-
Captain Obvious: HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
Captain Obvious: Your feeble spell cannot hold Captain Obvious, who has a cape which is red that says CO on it and a goatee which is evil and yellow! Also, the goatee is evil! And the cape is red! Goatee is yellow!
Jane: Extended Hold Person!
Jane: Hope it lasts longer that way.
Jane: This is bad. My magical ability is being impaired. I don't know if we can hold him off long enough.
Fred: Oh dear.
Captain Obvious: HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
Captain Obvious: Even the power of metamagic is not enough to stop Captain Obvious. You are doomed. I have a cape which is red and says CO on it. I also have a goatee which is evil and yellow. And a cape which is red and says CO on it. And a goatee which is evil and yellow. The evil goatee is yellow.
Fred: Pardon? Could you repeat that?
