Questing and Queers

Questing and Queers

by NyphlyNonsense
Welcome to Questing and Queers, a D&D-themed webcomic with a mix of In-Character and Out-of-Character shenanigans. My motivation with this comic was simply to write a D&D story where the background radiation of the universe was queer rather than cis/het. It will be going up Saturdays. I didn't start posting these until I had a solid buffer, both for my sanity and to make sure I enjoyed it, so this won't be going five comics in and then vanishing. Every one of the players is queer, although I don't expect that to come up immediately. This is a D&D comic that's passively queer, not a queer comic that's passively D&D.

You can also find the comic on tumblr and facebook, just search for Questing and Queers.

@NyphlyNonsense: oh cool
@That1Geek: That limitation doesn't exist in 3.5, which is what I'm running this off. They speak Common and Kenku by default.

@NyphlyNonsense: I like that the kenku actually has dialogue besides random noises. The limiting factor o the kenku's voice is really weird. I dont know why it exists.
@That1Geek: Congrats on being the first to comment. I'm glad you're enjoying it so far!

My Apologies
Due to declining health, Questing and Queers will only be updating on Saturdays for the foreseeable future. While I love this comic and I have a lot of ideas for it, I am unable to put in the time necessary to post twice a week.

Comics will continue to be posted Saturdays, including this coming Saturday.
I Swap Equivalent Class Variants Freely
I wasn’t originally going to do this page this way, I had scripts way ahead. But then I realized how short Sentiment is and that the bar is built for hags and giants. I had to.

Lucia is some mixture of bard and barbarian. This means she is doubly compelled to get as tanked as humanly possible on every occasion.
Can Hardly Tell Lucia Is Once Again Drinking!
Waaaa so much text. I really need to be a little LESS inspired by Another Gaming Comic (it’s discontinued, before you start an archive dive). Anyway. Martellus gets a gentle comeuppance, because to be fair Illicium is probably a hundred years wiser than him. And if there’s one thing crones are unimpressed by, it’s social mores, so they’re not afraid to put men in their place.

I Adore Salem
Since these folks are all actual friends, I’d imagine that Hailey and Amanda absolutely adore each other, and even kick around ideas for these kinds of interactions. The last panel, OOC, isn’t Hailey sitting there dumbfounded, it’s her saying, “Martellus just stares at you. You crashed his brain.”

I am not a hardcore fan of 40K. I lost interest in video games shortly after Soulstorm came out, other than Dwarf Fortress, and I mostly read the books as they grace my local library. And it’s very very cis-het-male-centric and -dominated. But it holds a fond place in my heart. I’m not sure whether Alex plays war games or just video games, but I suspect it’s primarily the latter. Amanda plays Iron Kingdoms and has just absorbed bits of 40K lore through other players who are steeped in wargaming more generally. None of which has any bearing on anything, but I felt like rambling.
People Stew, People Stew...
Here’s what Diesel hasn’t read, and the tune to Amanda’s song.

When Diesel says Hit Points and Vitality, he means Vitality and Wounds. But since that mistake STILL hasn’t been corrected in the game I’M in, he’ll make the same one for some time. “A Hit Point by any other name, would be lost as fast.”

Ah, the chaos of out-of-character discussions.
I hope they let the minotaur win at cards. Or that they’re not attached to their arms.
They're All Having Fun
Several of my friends starting saying OMG and LOL ironically and then it became a habit. None of us say OMG-E though. And I blame Eagle Ordinary for the fact Alex does.

So. Many. Panels.
The daring escape!
I really need to figure out a better way to do fights. Comic form would drag on, but I just did seven-and-a-half pages of comic for one post.
I Roll For All Of This
Lucia always gets really good rolls when I roll for her. o_O
No Thanks, But I'll Point And Laugh If You Want
Somewhere along the way in his character concept, Martellus went from a genuine charmer to a Tamaki-like character. This is partly due to him rolling like absolute crap every time I roll for him charming or smarming. I’m okay with this.
You can always count on the ace for a dick joke.

I’m going to be boring and serious for a sec. Don’t actually expect your ace friends to have sex jokes, you might make them very uncomfortable. However, the aces in my circle, me included, have the DIRTIEST minds. After all, if you’re not concerned with it, you don’t take it seriously, and then sex is slightly more hilarious than Bushes of Love.
Good Question, Hailey
…okay, I’m no longer confident that Klefan doesn’t have any weapons.
Kindness
Diesel is, perhaps, entirely too kind a GM. But hey, if he wanted to kill them all outright he could just drop a half-fiendish half-dragon anarchic tarrasque on them and be done with it.

Lucia’s predicament is one of the unfortunate side-effects of getting arrest- I mean, splitting the party.

This one was badly hampered by the upload limit, to see the proper gif go to https://i.imgur.com/1rTJzl5.gif
I Promise Klefan Is Not A Monk, So...
How do you think you’re going to kill things, Klefan? You don’t have any weapons at the moment.
Jump and Tumble
They already split the party, what harm could a little more do? (The answer is 1d6 fall damage apiece.)
