The epic battle between good and evil becomes more epic-y than ever in the third volume in The Order of the Stick story, War and XPs. Follow the continuing adventures of Roy, Haley, Elan, Durkon, Vaarsuvius, and Belkar as they persevere prophecies, revenge, true love, heroic battles, villainous treacheries, tragic falls, and one swingin' party. Read in white-knuckled edge-of-your-seat anticipation as the Order leads the charge in a massive siege that makes the Battle of Thermopylae look like a sorority car wash.

Continuing directly from the story in the award-winning No Cure for the Paladin Blues, this book is a must-have for those who have been collecting the entire The Order of the Stick story in print format. Only slightly briefer than its namesake, War and XPs is a mammoth 288-page comic book that weighs in at over 2 pounds of comedy and covers all of the OOTS comics between #302 and #484—but we didn't stop until we crammed more than 30 pages of never-before-seen bonus material into this book, too!

    Check it out:
  • More than 15 bonus comics that expand the story as it unfolds!
  • Extensive author commentary, providing insight that he will likely regret revealing almost immediately!
  • A two-page tourist's guide to Azure City!
  • Foreward by Pat Rothfuss, New York Times-bestselling author of The Name of the Wind!
  • Preface by Elan the Bard!
  • A brief recap of the first two books by Vaarsuvius!
  • Translations for Haley's cryptograms!
  • Valuable money-saving coupons!

Finally, Giant in the Playground is proud to announce that for the first time, The Order of the Stick will be printed on 50% recycled paper, approved by the Forest Stewardship Council (which, contrary to dwarven beliefs, is not a secret cabal of deciduous overlords plotting the leafy doom of us all).

Hey, I just did the same thing a few weekends ago. Haven't seen another one advertised though, so it might be a while (I prefer to read them collected in print rather than on the website).


Any ETA for getting this one back in store?

Our distributor is out of this book right now so I've emailed the manufacturer to see if they have any more or if it is OOP, when they expect a reprint to arrive. I'll jump back in when I have some kind of an answer.

Did you ever get an answer to this question? Looking through my OotS books, this is the only one I never bought.

Hi Winter,

The distributor doesn't have an eta on a reprint. The publisher has always been flaky when it comes to keeping his books in print so there's no telling when this might be back in stock. We are more than happy keeping your order open in our system so that when it is back in print, we can send it out to you. Just let us know.


How long can a backorder be kept open? Been more than five long, sad months. Almost willing to resort to reading this one online and move on the the next book. Trying to hold out though.

We'll keep it open until it arrives, or our distributor says that it's never going to arrive. (If you get tired of waiting, just drop a note to Customer Service and we'll cancel the order for you.)


Hey :)

Any more word on when it might become available? Been on backorder since April but still hoping to get it.

Our distributor is reporting this as unavailable without an expected restock date. Your best option might be to order directly from the publisher, here.

This book has been out of print for a while, but thanks to the magic of Kickstarter it will return. The link is here: OoTS Reprint Drive. The book is funded enough that you don't have to join the Kickstarter, but for those who have been waiting it should be back in print soon.


Now that kickstarter has done its magic, is there any word on when (if) it's going to return?

You can follow along with the updates on kickstarter for more information, Rich will be keeping us updated with how things are going along the way with another handy chart.

The listed delivery date for the books directly through kickstarter however, seems to be April at the earliest, potentially as late as June.

From the latest update on Kickstarter
"Things are starting to move on reward fulfillment, albeit a little slowly. We won't be able to order any of the books or most of the swag until the money hits my actual bank account around the middle of this month, but there are a few items that I was able to pay for out of money I had saved. "
