DM of the Rings


Thanks to BoingBoing for bringing this to my attention. These guys have created a comic strip based on Lord of the Rings, as if played by a bunch of ignoramus Dungeons and Dragons players. Very, very funny.

Lord of the Rings is more or less the foundation of modern D&D. The latter rose from the former, although the two are now so estranged that to reunite them would be an act of savage madness. Imagine a gaggle of modern hack-n-slash roleplayers who had somehow never been exposed to the original Tolkien mythos, and then imagine taking those players and trying to introduce them to Tolkien via a D&D campaign
