The Penny Arcade and Hot Fun

I love this online comic.

I don’t even play these games. Zero. Don’t own a console. Don’t subscribe to a MMORPG. Yet this comic makes me laugh every time.

The underlying story of course is that I “relate” on a level that is mainly about background.

I love pencil and paper games. The real AD&D. Shadowrun (selling most of it on eBay recently made me 400 bucks). Warhammer FRP (which I still have, and won’t sell).

Allow me to share this email from the author of Pro Apache, Peter Wainwright, to me about the “secret code” I cracked in that tome:
