Sword and Bored: Loot table

We are nearing two months of Sword and Bored. It’s been so much fun so far exploring the personality of Mo, who represents nearly everyone who has ever logged into an MMO and been stymied by the recurring tropes.

I mentioned last week that Mo was first created on as a sketch for the Massively Overpowered logo, but the character didn’t really come to life for me until I started creating the header images for the Kickstarter. Although the most popular image of Mo has to be his winking pose used for the “thank you” image, it was the “why Kickstarter” image that really solidified how I was going to deal with the character. How do you make a character emote when he’s always wearing a faceplate? Clearly, I had to break some rules, but in breaking them, I found that his personality really began to shine.

It shined strong enough to make a comic based on his adventures. And here’s what happened this week…

Doesn’t clothing that requires dry clean tend to shrink if you wash it improperly? If so…then shouldn’t Mo try washing it in hopes if shrinking it to fit?

A Dad Supreme JonBuck I hope those were comparative stats because negative armor is brutal. Guess it is so soft it softens your skin and allows you to be cut and stabbed easier.

John Bagnoli Or a gw2 reference where a tiny bird flies a foot to deliver 500lbs of plate armor because they don’t know how to trade.

Oh yeah.. the never-relevant rewards. Got to love them. I can understand the logic behind it.. they aren’t going to have an armory of all items behind them to cater to your playstyle.. but damn it got annoying questing for hours only to get one upgrade.

I can’t wait for the moment when Mo unlocks shoulder armor. He thinks gaudy robes are bad…

Purple is not Mo’s color. Hope he saves up later for some color dye microtransactions to use on future gear

Oleg Chebeneev It was a three part sequence for one “quest” that tackled three different mmo loot tropes. I wouldn’t say they are spinning their wheels quite yet, but I do not envy anyone in the position of having to create web comics with any consistency.

From loot episode we follow to another loot episode before moving to yet another loot episode. Feeling like Loot and Bored. Except Im not feeling loot when reading it

A question for Mo in the grainiest voice this Gnome can manage possible: “Do you bleed?”

ogged451 Mo the Ent would have been unstoppable. Also unwatchable, but that’s part of why he’d be so unstoppable!

When he levels a portly Mage alt, he’ll be happy to get that.

No, it’s because the developers never programmed any dry cleaners in all of the game’s world.

I bet he had to vendor it because it became soulbound in panel 3.

Mo stands in line to sell his newly found wares… only to be told that he “cannot sell the item to vendors”…. :P

You need to make one where he tries to trade/give it to another (more appropriate) player but cannot because its bound.

Recently, because I had no game that was thrilling me at the moment, I decided to take a run around WOW on various toons in the newbie areas. Pretty funny that I have never taken a shot at wow but right now I have either an old puter with lots of space for games (but can’t play anything new) or newer laptop with no room left …  I lvled up a Blood Elf Hunter up to 15 before I realized I had been grabbing all the cloth armour with intellect, totally forgot that Hunters wear Leather….
I guess I’ve never played an elf as anything but a mage.
