Painful to Read

I figured with the content of the comic this would be the best thread to present the material.  Not entirely sure if a discussion can be mounted in defense of this comic, but I am certain many will not be happy.  Ignorance set to pen is painful to witness.

Its a religious tract not a comic.

Everyone knows gaming leads to demon worship and selling ones soul. (yes I'm being cynical)

This version is better

I guess I've been playing the wrong games all these years though. 20+ years of RPGing, and I can't even manage a small fireball.

I feel crappy cause I usually play fighters.  Do we get anything cool from the cult...nnnnoooooo.  All we get are chain mail bikinis and a plastic sword.  Such a crock.

Dark Dungeons?  I'm guessing based on the domain and the following comments.

Love how they conveniently forget about the Paladin class.

Yeah, what a rip-off.  I had a cleric reach 11th level once, and no one offered to teach me any real spells!  And that whole "neener, neener, you're dead," GMing style wouldn't fly with any gamer I know.  Tsk.

They probably dismiss Paladins as a sneaky way to try to lure in the religious before making them play thieves instead.  Or something.

I loved the Palladium Fantasy Witch O.C.C. you can be a classic witch that sells their souls to a demon or devil lord for power, it was cool.

I wanted to do some Christian Anarchist ones I could copy and hand out.

Hehe I did have a bit of a giggle reading that, sometimes things are just too extreme to be real.

What i'm most upset about though is that no one offered me cult when I played mages. I must really suck as a mage! *Sniff*

While this comic is true, not everyone who learns to cast spells via DnD becomes a lifeless shell of a person.  I've been casting spells for many years after learning Magic Missile from 4 years of extensive Pen and Paper RPGing and I haven't killed myself yet.  Now I did actually maim a few people, I may have taken a few lives, but I'm more in touch with the great Satan than ever, so I can't say I care.

Pfft, if the Pope says Pokemon is okay then what harm is there in DnD?

Pokemon inspired me to go out and start my own fighting arena for animals. I seem to be making a lot of money on it, though I do have this fish who can't seem to do anything but splash around...

O.O

You'd better get a bigger arena.  Just... trust me.

I heard Michael Vick was kind to animals before he started getting into Pokemon.

After playing D&D for over 2 decades you think I could at least perform a simple light spell, but noooo. Even when my 2nd edition necromancer hit level 24 no one offered me a spot in a cult. Same goes for the anti-paladin, and the priest of Set (the egyption diety). So where the hell were all the hot, likely bisexual, witches when I was playing the game?

Anyway, Chick and pretty much everything on his site has and always will be falsifyed crap. Hes the worst kind of christian IMO. As bad as, if not worse then, the WBC

Why does everyone insist on killing off the thief? You know, we aren't helpless and do know how to avoid getting into trouble. And there is a nobility to our art, too. Sure we steal but most of us do it as an art form and only take from those who wont really miss it.

But, in all honesty, I don't see how anyone could take that seriously. I mean, the notion of taking a fantasy real of any-type to such an extreme is utter nonsense. They'll start wailing on my Elder Scrolls, next. :(

Well, as pointed out in Hairy's link above, that can't possibly be a real D&D session anyway.  There's no Mountain Dew, and there are more females than males.
