DM of the Rings LXXXVI:

Gimli plays Diablo.

By now you’re probably realizing that this week is just going to be the same joke, told three different ways. Don’t think of it as getting less jokes, think of it as me getting to play more Jade Empire last weekend!

Honestly if I ever get my hands on Final Fantasy XII, this webcomic is doomed. You’ll get ten silent panels with no punchline, strip after strip of out-of-context Monty Python quotes, and jokes which are nothing more than Viggo Mortensen making funny faces.

    Throwing knives tend to go for a few hundred gold in Diablo II.

    “Given the leaps and things Gimli makes…would you class him as a Diablo 2 Barbarian, I wonder?

    Legolas is clearly an Amazon.

    And as ever, Aragorn and Gandalf evade classification. Maybe Paladins?”

    I’d say that Aragorn’s more like a Fighter, and Gandalf is more like a Sorceror, both from the original Diablo.

    I can’t wait to see what Aragorn’s doing with his gaming time…

    This Diablo game looks cool, I think I’m gunna check it out.

    And this DEFINATELY is beggining to look more like an MMORPG. Perfect. :)

    honestly, that is THE funniest video game reference yet. I’m going to puke out my stomach one of these days because of you. You are the reason I’m going to die horribly with a big, stupid grin on my face.

  5. dyrnwyn says:

  6. Aragorn says:

    hey i play diablo!!!! :P :D :P

  7. Aragorn says:

    i do and diablo 3 will RULE!!!

  8. Kasper says:

    The GM’s I’ve had have been pretty good at keeping the loot on par with the enemy, but I’ve noticed that many games have a strange balance of these.
    How often haven’t an arcane artifact been found on an enemy who inexplicably failed to use it?

  9. Ok, that was really, REALLY funny

    Haha. Diablo.

    Shamus, you are AMAZING.

    Btw: there is nothing that sucks more than killing a “Gold Dragon” elite in WoW and finding NOTHING on it.

  10. That is AMAZING! Shamus, you are the fucking MAN!

  11. Aragorn says:

    LOL I play diablo on battlenet, add Katman/kat_man :D

    > “My hovercraft is full of eels!”

  14. smiley dude says:

    What is he, a dashing swordsman?
