I suspect most of you who'd be interested have heard about this already anyway, but I have a new little comedy show in this year's Melbourne Fringe Festival, opening tonight. It's about Dungeons & Dragons, though you don't need to have played it to enjoy the show. It's an hour of Richard McKenzie and I revelling in this, one of our favourite hobbies, with plenty of silliness and jokes and mental behaviour. Say hi if you come down!

+1 Sword
Dragons. Dungeons. Not necessarily in that order.

In 1974, a pair of idiots invented Dungeons & Dragons, the first role-playing game. 35 years later, a different pair of idiots – comedy nerds Richard McKenzie (Super Happy Robot Hour, Mint Condition) and Ben McKenzie (Melbourne Museum Comedy Tour, Planet Nerd) – will polish the twenty-sided dice, sharpen the +1 swords and open a bag of holding full of tales of adventure, danger and laughs.

The only comedy show which grants a bonus to attack and damage rolls.

Will be there Thursday... in costume... with a character sheet.

Because my friend and I discussed this, and we figure the ticket cost is a damage roll, so shouldn't you have to roll to hit first? Your melee against our AC, or something similar? And what if you fail the grapple? Can we roll damage against you? *grins*

Hopefully you'll be around, or we'll likely traumatise some poor fringe staff. I'm bringing my enchanted ringmail and a barbarian warrior...
