    Found this comic saga the other day

    This is a hilarious comic called Darths and Droids. Basically it is a world where SW never existed and a couple guys are playing Phantom Menace as an RPG. Points out the stupidity of TPM and mocks D&D playing. It uses stills from the movie and has the characters playing the movie (more or less)

    You got the Game Master playing all the NPCs...

    Jim playing Qui-Gon who is an idiot who attacks stuff for XP and wants all the credits he can get He wants to take all the blasters of fallen droids to sell for credits.

    Ben playing Obi-Wan, a calm rational player

    Pete playing R2D2, has maxed out mechanical skills and binary dice

    Ben's little sister Sally playing Jar Jar, she is new and is the one who names a lot of things and gives them descriptions

    A girl from Ben's Drama class plays Anakin and Shmi.

    It is 190 strips long so far and is only at the parts where Darth Maul has knocked Obi-Wan into the pit and Anakin is on the Droid ship.





    Apparently there is a LOTR one too..

    apparently there was a reference to the D&D comic on Clone Wars cartoon.

    In a recent episode Jar Jar is mistaken for a Jedi, escapes, is chased by a giant creature. Later he shows up to stop Gnewt Gunray and the battle droids. They get ready to attack when the Giant creature pops up and attacks the battle droids.

    Apparently all the D&D fans who saw this immediately started shouting "Summon Bigger fish!" :lolol

    How often do they update with a new frame? I wanna see the ending. Especially the part where the orb is returned to Boss Nass.

    Wow they are almost done. Newt Gunray has been captured and the groups are happy.

    I love the line in today's strip where the queen suggest they raise taxes.
