Loaded dice is a fun strip. Good artwork and a fun set of characters for sure. I also enjoy reading the narrators section of every post.
It's hard to believe how practicle some characters and there players can be sometimes. As a gamer myself I can't count the number of times I have watched a player take note of something like the pool and avoid it. Sure, it would likely be troubling to deal with the pond, but that's part of the fun. As alacrity pointed out, just ignoring something could cause a problem down the line.
It can also be very hard to get a practicle player involved in a plot. If you really think about it.. Adventuring isn't a very practicle occupation to begin with but a suprising number of players who play 'practicle' characters don't take the time to think about the fact that they are out adventuring, which is not a very practicle thing.
But what can I say... I'm not one of the people who game to win. More often than not I'm gaming to be social, and have a good story. There is nothing wrong with gaming to 'win' but I think those players are missing out on part of what makes rp fun.

Welcome to the Inn, Reddrake! Good to meet you, and thanks for sharing your comments!
I agree, btw. I think that players often have a tough time handling situations as their character would, not as they personally would.
