The Game?

Post by ShadowLightning »

So, throughout the comic, the Cosmic Nerds are playing this game. Up until now, I'm still not exactly sure how it goes.They mentioned that it was like D&D, but I don't know how that works too. Can anyone please explain how it works? Thanks.

The arc that begins with this strip gives a good overview.

Don't worry, you weren't the only one. My first (and so far only) real exposure to D&D was a cartoon series that I saw in early 2000's, and I just learned that its original airing was in the '80s.

Okay, I think I kind of understand how it goes. Sort of... But I still have some questions, if you don't mind me asking.

1. Is there anyone else playing? Or is it just Spirit Dragon and Pete playing?

2. Did Pete and/or Spirit had any other followers/avatars other than the ones mentioned?

3. How long has the game been going exactly?

Sorry if they sound kind of stupid, but I really don't know.

You might want to re-read the arc, all your questions were answered therein.

Anything not in the arc hasn't really been made clear. Considering the game is basically just a fancy metaphor, I'm sure most of the details don't even exist.

Given that the whole universe at this level of reality is basically the playing field for The Game, you are always playing The Game.

I just came to the realization that all the cosmic nerds lost the game already. Because, you know, they thought about it.

Gecko you have just broken down the borders of reality and opened the eight dimension of chaos.

Ferrets always win the game, by stealing your socks while you're worrying about it.

Did somebody say the words "eight" and "chaos" in the same sentence?
