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...

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.

Should have gone with the Entertainer. They have the highest DPS in the game. >->

"Entertainer", or Bard?  I always bet on the bard...

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

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

Now the hard part in maintaining a once week update cycle.  It can't be easy to keep coming up with 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.

Entertainer has the fanciest armor.  Mo fails at fashion.

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: ' Who wants to see a belly dance?'

Entertainer reminds me of the tomfoolery characters from the Dragon Quest series: jesters, clowns, bunny girls, and the like. All their stats were terrible except for 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.

Oh, and max out those bulge sliders eh?

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 ...).

Very funny, well done!  Love the beer gut, specially in the Leia outfit.  Also noticed the copy write is "Overpowered Media Group".  Is that new and legit?

About that 3rd one...is that the main classes you roll in Scarlet Blade? o.O

No, that's the special edition Princess Leia costume that is soon to hit SW:TOR's cash shop.

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, recognition that Warrior is the best class, and fanservice.

10/10.  Would read again.

@Sixcess And can't spell ;-P (referring to the title "Sword and Bored")

Love how his "facial" expression changes and the bushy thing turns into an exclamation mark. Thumbs up! :-)

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

@A Dad Supreme I want to ask where he put everything to get into those shorts but....I fear knowing the answer.
