Ever wonder how the Order of the Stick met? Or why on earth Roy would ever hire Elan? Or whether any of the OOTSers ever knew each other before the team formed? All of these questions and many others have been left annoyingly unanswered in the online edition of the Order of the Stick.
But wait! Now you can know! Now your burning curiosity that borders on unhealthy obsession can at last be sated, for the new OOTS book is here—and it's a prequel!
Yes, travel back with Rich Burlew, creator of the popular gaming comic The Order of the Stick, as he unearths the secret origins of your favorite adventurers in the first all-new never-posted-on-the-internet version of OOTS. In The Order of the Stick: On the Origin of PCs, you'll discover the answers to all of the following questions:
- How did Haley leave the employ of the Thieves' Guild?
- Why was Durkon sent into human lands by the high priest of Thor?
- What was Roy like in Fighter College?
- What ever happened to Elan's last employer?
- What does Belkar really think of the Monk class?
- Why DO they call themselves the "Order of the Stick"? (No, for real this time.)
Presented in 72 glossy pages of glorious black-and-white art (for that nostalgic "old movie" feel), the book also features a preface by Redcloak the Goblin Cleric. The Order of the Stick: On the Origin of PCs is a must for any fan of the comic series. Well, any fan who doesn't want to be kept up nights worrying about the horrible, horrible truth about their favorite characters. Trust us—your sanity practically DEMANDS you own this book!
Six brave stick-figure adventurers embark on a semi-epic journey to overcome hardship, villainy, and the rules of their favorite fantasy roleplaying game in The Order of the Stick.
And now you can own the first 121 strips of Rich Burlew’s ridiculously popular webcomic epic in easy-to-read-in-the-bathroom book format! Time and again, you’ll be able to read as Roy, Elan, Belkar, and the rest of the OOTS cast face off against power-mad liches, snippy goblin's henchmen, rebellious teenagers, clown puppets, and their own crushing incompetence.
The Order of the Stick: Dungeon Crawlin’ Fools features 160 pages of full-color comics, including 18 all-new, never-seen-on-the-web bonus strips. Plus, commentary by the author, prefaces by James Wyatt and Belkar Bitterleaf, and scads of random extras we crammed in wherever there was a gap in the page count. This is THE definitive version of the early OOTS adventures, and you like being definitive, don’t you? Of course you do.
