Olan's thoughts for this strip:
We've had a little art problem with our regular strip, but fortunately for us, RPG Myth Breakers is here with a new episode!

Next time, the DM should possibly consider index cards to help keep his monsters organized. See what happens when you overlook details!

Script for this strip:
Alacrity: "The Pen..."
Bromern: "...the Sword. Since the Dawn of Time it has been argued that the pen is mightier than the sword."

Alacrity: "Bob is a Dungeon Master and has volunteered to aid us in our test."
Bob: "Hi!"
Bromern: "Bob will fave our sword-wielding monsters using only a pen to defend himself."
Bob: "I will... WHAT?!"

Bob: "Oh, my God!"

Bob: "Just making a few edits..."

Alacrity: "Let's try again..."
Bromern: "Something harder..."

Bob: "Nothing to it!"

Minotaur: "Aaargh!"

Alacrity: "Well, in the hands of a DM, the pen is mightier than the sword."
Bromern: "Yes it is. Thanks for the assist, Bob."
Bob: "No problem guys, just shows you shouldn't..."

Bob: "Ack!"

Alacrity: "But not mightier than the claw, apparently."
Bromern: "Definitely not! Ooooh, that's got to hurt."
