Steve: One of the coolest things about old school D&D were the ridiculous numbers under "NO. APPEARING." That's 12d12 Monodrones.

Zack: I remember playing D&D once when we encountered 15 orcs or goblins. It took ten minutes just to figure out the order in which everyone would attack. Imagine encountering 123 of them.

Steve: It should be your first red flag that whoever put this in the Monster Manual never intended for anyone to actually use them in a game.

Zack: Or whoever put the Modrons in the book was an autistic kook obsessed with huge random tables and square roots and rolling dice. Take your pick.

Steve: When you say huge do you mean medium?

Zack: I mean generating data tables that require you to roll three ten-sided dice.

More WTF, D&D!?

This Week on Something Awful...

  • GLUT OF DOGS

    GLUT OF DOGS

    TOTAL WRECK - crazy-eyed hound is covered in cobwebs, has a vespiary on back, graffiti on side and savage thirst for boat fuel. Frankly, I'm in over my head. He's in room 115 at Motel 6, yours free. 555-2851

  • THE PERFECT HUMAN FORM

    THE PERFECT HUMAN FORM

    Yes, it's the perfect form for surviving a car crash. But it's also the perfect form for so much more, like surviving the trauma of reading any news headline in 2016.
