Tales from the Tabletop Explanation

Post your own dialog for this rockin‘ comic at Facebook.com/dndmemes. If your entry is selected as the funniest, you win awesome stuff like adventures, dice, or gooey cinnamon rolls!

What is this awesome looking comic about tabletop gaming?

Tales from the Tabletop is a tabletop gaming comic drawn and colored by Jacob Blackmon. Jacob fantasizes about Tales from the Tabletop by candlelight in the late evening hours and has been known to conduct secret arcane rituals involving cute cats and beautiful anime cosplay girls.

Jonathan G. Nelson comes up with some awesome, stupid, and downright ridiculous ideas which Jacob frequently shakes his head at, and then smiles because he knows that he can transform those frantic ramblings about green slime and three-headed dire reindeer (with the fiendish template) into something which ordinary folks just might understand.

Justin Andrew Mason designed and created our logo (with one hand) in about 10 minutes, while also writing an adventure, drinking energy drinks, and designing layouts for about 25 different websites all at the same time –  and the logo still came out pretty rockin’!

So that’s it! I got off to rambling, but yeah- that’s the team!

Why are the word balloons filled with red numbers instead of words?

The word balloons are left empty so YOU can post comments writing in what you think should go there. Anything is fair game so long as it’s not racist, sexist, or any other “-ist” which we deem archaic, ignorant nonsense.

Why should I do this?

You have been tempted by the powers of the dark side. You reach for a piece of charcoal or chalk, and begin to etch on the dungeon wall; your body is weary of carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders… You succumb to your darkest comedic desires, and feel the need to write hilarious dialog for a tabletop gaming comic book! What strange desires you have! Oh man, I want a hot gooey cinnamon roll right now! Doesn’t that sound good!?

What do I get if my entry is chosen?

The entry deemed by our panel of judges (the team) to be the funniest wins something awesome like a print adventure, a free subscription to AdventureAWeek.com, a sack of dice, or even a dice sack made from a bull’s scrotum. Yuk, but seriously…

  1. 1)
    Binding your wounds, you all enter another dark, mysterious room.

    All right, fine… we tie the rope to the doorknob. Plan C. Again.

    We can’t keep using the “jump around, looking for traps” plan.

  2. 1)
    Two guards stand vigilant outside two sinister doors. The guard on the right says, “One of us always tells the truth…”

    Yeah, yeah. We choose the left door.

    Sure, we’re closer to death than ever before. But at LEAST we’re not futzing around with a stupid logic puzzle!

  3. 1)
    The gnome says, “Sure, I can point you in the direction of adventure!”

    Perfect. The tougher, the better; we’re not afraid of anything!

    “Beware! Deadly Egress!” the sign by the rope said.
    “We’ve never fought an egress before,” you said…

  4. 1)
    This chamber’s epicenter contains a virescent lever adjacent to a frayed rope ascendant to the inky darkness above. A noisome stench permeates . . .

    Too long; didn’t listen. I pull the lever.

    All I’m saying is, the risks aren’t EQUAL! Your impatience risks decades of your lives, yet MILLENNIA of mine!

  5. You may have noticed we changed things up on you and removed the three frames condensing them down to one. This was a major design decision by our team inspired by both our fans and peers. We hope no one gets so frustrated that they break pencils and throw dice at our heads… in fact I’m hoping most people use that negative energy to feed their inner beast and crunch out one word balloon to rule them all! So have at it, you’ve only got one word balloon to fill now so there’s no excuses friends! Good luck to you!

  6. As a matter of fact, I know both “teleport self” AND “teleport group.” Now, let’s discuss my share of treasure distribution going forward . . .
