Talking of XKCD

WOW. He finally did it. A few months ago the writer of XKCD, Randall Munroe, published a comic about GROWNUPS where the characters built a ball pit in their apartment.

Well, after one of his readers, Mike MacHenry did it and blogged it, Randall has finally built his own ball pit instead of a couch. Pictures and comments on the XKCD Blag.

The DM of the Rings

I don't spend a lot of time looking for webcomics or reading them, honest. There are a couple that are noteworthy ( xkcd or Order of the Stick for instance) but most have either too much noise to signal or start off good and get progressively worse (the n00b springs to mind) or even start off great and then stop updating all together (Neko the Kitty for instance).

Occasionally one is recommended to me that is actually worth reading like The DM of the Rings. This is funny even if you've never played D&D but if you've ever been a Dungeon Master then it will bring tears to your eyes.
