Giant in the playground!

I've mentioned it before, but you should really be reading The Order of the Stick, the funniest webcomic out there, and also the cleverest and best written.

It recently had a fundraiser on Kickstarter and raised so much money that it broke all the records in the universe, and you can see why - great writing and lots and lots of cool stuff given away to people who donate money.

But look at today's strip, which was one of those that made me think "Oh, wow, that's awesome, why didn't I see that coming?" This is the 842nd strip, and it contains the revelation that the Order's current situation is related to something Vaarsuvius did in strip number 639, which of course he was pushed into doing by the evil and mysterious demons, and now it all makes sense and ties everything together... the whole comic is full of bits like this. And to think it started out with basically just making jokes about the rules of Dungeons and Dragons.

Seriously, go and read it, even if like me you're only vaguely aware of the way the rules of Dungeons and Dragons work. You won't regret it!
