Comic #1493

1 Mordekai: There's only one thing that can save us from being massacred by all these orcs.
2 Lambert: What's that?
3 Mordekai: If we somehow get slaughtered by something even more dangerous first.
4 GM: {looking over a copy of GURPS Balrogs} Funny you should mention that.

The book is actually GURPS Grimoire, Photoshopped by me to look like something else.

For those of you who want to make a nitpicky comment about the last panel: Wait until the next Fantasy strip.

For those who don't know what I'm talking about: Wait until the next Fantasy strip.

2016-11-30 Rerun commentary: That's a pretty good Photoshopping job, if I do say so myself.

GURPS Grimoire always reminds me a bit of Unearthed Arcana (the original 1st edition version), although that book contained additional classes and magic items as well as just additional spells for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. But, to me at least, Grimoire has the feel of expanding things in different directions, where it might be best not to go. The technology magic stuff - while admittedly of potential use in a campaign that includes both high technology and magic - just feels weird. I guess deep down I'm not a huge fan of combining those genres.
