The Order of the Stick is back in action (and in color!) in this second volume compiling the popular fantasy gaming satire webcomic in convenient book format. Watch in amazement as The Order of the Stick, everyone's favorite band of hopelessly incompetent adventurers, leaves the dungeon behind (probably a good idea, considering they blew it up anyway) and ventures out into the great outdoors. Thrill to encounters with bandits, dragons, assassins, and perhaps the most terrifying of all—paladins! Watch in amazement as the Order of the Stick finds itself caught between the forces of Good and Less-Than-Good as their stupid little adventure turns into a stupid epic adventure to save their very world!

This is the second compilation of the adventures of The Order Of The Stick and now, like on the first expansion to ye olde original D&D rules, it is time to leave the dungeon and explore the world at large.
Now the characters are further developed and the main plot starts to shape, while the humour and emphasis move little by little away from D&D parody, in favour of the storyline and other original content. Fear not, much hilarity is still included and obscure rules references will not be abandoned.
As with the first volume, there are loads of additional content, making this book just as essential. Great job, Rich!
Great art, dialouge, and storytelling. Well worth the price, and with nice additional material not available on the website.
Highly enjoyable for people who are currently part of the rollplaying scene, or people like me, who left D&D behind a long time ago back when "Advanced" was considered something kinda newfangled and sexy....
