Olan's thoughts for this strip:
After what seems like ages since their last strip, Alacrity and Bromern swoop in just in the nick of time to deliver the latest RPG Myth Breakers! Thanks so much, guys!

Alacrity makes quite the dashing swordsman, wouldn't you agree?

Script for this strip:
Alacrity: "2e or not 2e, that is the question. Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to sneak attack with slings and arrows, or to hide in a sea of darkness, and to they back, stab thee."

Bromern: "Al? Are you feeling OK?"
Alacrity: "Yes. In today's episode we look at game editions. Specifically, is 2e better than 3e?"

Bromern: "Shouldn't we be comparing to 4e? I mean, it is the current version."

Alacrity: "If we're gonna compare superhero rpgs - I'd wear this suit!"

Bromern: "To test 2e vs. 3e, Al has volunteered to fight this warrior of the 3e game rules. Let the match begin."

Warrior: "You gonna fight me? I have skills! I have feats! I have attacks of opportunity!"


Bromern: "How'd you do that?"
Alacrity: "Simple. He was spending so much time rolling all his kills checks, I got him before he could move. There you have it, folks, 2e - better than 3e all the way."

Bromern: "That was so biased!"
Alacrity: "Actually it is a Ginsu - deluxe model too."
Secretary: "Excuse me Mr. Alacrity. There are some umm... gentlemen here to see you."
