Sword and Bored: Class selection

Welcome to the first episode of Sword and Bored by Larry Everett and Jef Reahard. This comic strip series is a thank-you to all of our Kickstarter backers who allowed us to surpass our stretch goals for starting this site.

The comic, which will be a weekly four-panel strip, tells the story of Mo, a player character in a crazy MMORPG that both defines and surpasses the ridiculousness we find in our favorite MMOs.

Of course, Mo starts his career in the same place that everyone starts in every MMO ever created: the character select screen...

Cyroselle "Isn't there a pet less shortbow user in GW2?" -- Yes, the thief.  Pretty fun w/ a short bow, too!  :)

Bow user in ESO, Marksman soul in Rift, bow users in Path of Exile, Archers in AA (if you can ignore the rest of that trainwreck, the class system is actually fun) and I'm leaving so many out, I just know I am.... Isn't there a pet less shortbow user in GW2?

It's like the dimensional fold technology that the Capsule Corporation issues uses in Dragonball.

lol, off to a strong start. You're already abusing poor Mo. 

He should really reroll as an entertainer, I hear they're deceptively OP. Especially with that body type.

Rebel Engie  I usually play Cleric in anything I can, so I say Cleric Mo should totally be a thing too. ^.^

Neat! I grew up reading comics in the pages of Nintendo Power. I am ALL for the idea of this site having it's own comic strip starring Mo :D

Now the hard part in maintaining a once week update cycle.  It can't be easy to keep coming up new and funny ideas then express it in a 4 cell cartoon.  I'm sure Larry and Jef are up to the challenge!

WOW. I was laying in bed last night thinking about how awesome it would be to have a comic strip of Mo. I was thinking of suggesting it today. Something similar to The Noob Comic. This is awesome haha.

Are you sure Mo didn't pick the entertainer class? 'Cause I feel pretty entertained right now! :P I like that Massively has a cute little mascot.

Entertainer reminds me of the tomfoolery characters from the Dragon Quest series: jesters, clowns, bunny girls, and the like. They had terrible stats except luck, and sometimes they'd just ignore your commands and screw around in combat. Even better, they were a prerequisite class for the more potent end-game prestige classes.

What no Kilt???? 

This has nothing to do with anything but I understand at this point in the Shroud of the Avatar, you get a Coconut mount (a la Holy Grail Monty Python ...).

I always play a warrior or whatever is closest to it for my first character in any new game. I don't even like them that much. I just . . . reasons.

Amusing title, recoginition that Warrior is the best class, and fanservice.
10/10.  Would read again.
