Olan's thoughts for this strip:
If Steve lets them wander in circles, they complain. If he railroads them on an adventure, they complain.
If he gives gentle suggestions and drops clues... they wander in circles. Then complain.
Such is the lot of the DM.
Brittany's thoughts for this strip:
Welp. Please ignore the fail in this one. I'm not the biggest fan of photoshop. Also, if characters are looking different from strip to strip, it's cause I'm trying to find the right look for them. Only Amy, Tim, and Ray are really gonna stay the same, the others may vary a bit as I play with them.

Ray: “Now, hold on. How are we headed for some town? Shouldn’t we, you know, *decide* where we want to go first?”
Steve: “Okay, sounds reasonable.”
Tim: “We need to make some cash!”

Ray: “I endorse the loot idea!”
Rich: “We should probably report the monastery thing to the church. They may even pay a reward.”
Amy: “I’m betting that Steve will have something for us to fight… so Rich’s idea would make everybody happy, right?”

Steve (narrator): “Once again, we rejoin our adventure as the party makes their way towards the town nestled in the…”
Brad: “Wait a second! How did you know that we’d even go this way?”
Ray: “Are you railroading us again?”
Steve: “Not at all. It just so happens that the town is along your way.”
Rich: “Right. Along the way, no matter which way we went?”
Tim: “I get it. Schrodinger helped plan this adventure, didn’t he?”
Steve: “No comment.”
