Grapple Check

The grapple rules are some of the most painfully complex and confusing rules in D&D. That's why we don't use them.

Author Notes:

I liked the varied range of poses in this comic. I'm getting pretty sick of desaturated characters, though. Hopefully we'll escape the Greyzone soon.

Also, Jane's had a DM? She's played D&D before? Could this be... character development?

This comic only made sense when i read the hover text - don't miss the hover text dear reader.

I too enjoy more colour than in available in ythe desaturation zone.

Heh, I was wondering when you were gonna snap under the lack of colour XD

I deem this snicker worthy, either the sound of the candy bar, your choice.

Hmm...That's a good idea. I wish I told my players that.

Eh? I thought Jane was a character in the world, therefore isn't a "player", therefore cannot have played DnD.



Jane: Any spell you may try to cast, I may counterspell.
Captain Obvious: Ah, but you are a mere caster.

Captain Obvious: I initiate a grapple attempt!
Jane: Sorry? A what?

Captain Obvious: I have succeeded on a melee touch attack, and am now grappling. I have a cape which is red and says CO on it.

Captain Obvious: I am damaging my opponent as with an unarmed strike as detailed in the grapple rules!

Jane: Since when does D&D have grapple rules?

Captain Obvious: D&D's always had grapple rules. They're in the core rulebooks.
Jane: Huh.

Jane: My DM always said the grapple rules came in an extra sourcebook. And refused to purchase it. They've been core all this time?
Captain Obvious: Yep. He may have been justified in not using them, though.
Sign reads: Enervation is the magic spell I am casting, which is a magic spell and is magical.

Captain Obvious: Enervation is the magic spell I am casting, which is a magic spell and is magical! You can't counterspell since you're still in the prone position! I have a cape which is red and says CO on it!
Same sign.
