What ever happened to Will Saving Throws?


“When you think about it…we could use it to save OTHER towns!” – Raphael, Cleric of Tymora

A comic inspired by my recent Spelljammer oneshot. Non-combat encounters can be tough to run without breaking into full on battle. When my players get to the end of a dungeon, I try to have the villain present them with multiple options. Sometimes the villain will try to divide them with hard to refuse offers. Other times, he simply seeks mercy. Choice is the heart of this game and I feel a dungeon’s boss should represent that in its purest form.

Anyone have a great story about a time their players were able to resolve an encounter without fighting? Did they extort their enemy? What did they gain?

Born at the ripe age of 0, Sebastian Leverette started his quest for TTRPG...goodness? I'm gonna be honest. I just need to write something here to test the font style and see what it looks like. I'll probably forget to change this later.

  1. Hey, new reader. Been really enjoying the commentary. It’s refreshing to hear so much positive culture in your DMing style! I like the use of magic items as tools. If you don’t already, I would love to see a list of some of your favorites.

    1. Thanks! I’ve actually been working on a small series of posts that should go up soon that goes over some of my favorite magic items! Hopefully I’ll be able to share it within the next couple weeks!
