Really? What's The Point?

So why is the paladin character hiding amongst the foliage, while the arch-fiend nemesis of the group is having a grand old time playing along with the kids?

Also, sweet gorilla of Manilla, is that Kieth Parkinson's signature I'm seeing down by Bobby's furry boot there? Egads!

You are correct, sir.

I'm guessing that's warduke?

Warduke's the guy on the board in the blue helmet with the red eyes hanging out with the bullywugs.

That's Strongheart the paladin (I needed to google that name, btw. I'm a power nerd but dropping that kind of trivia's too much even for me...)

Why he's hiding in the bushes still eludes me...

Wasn't he the coward? I seem to recall strongheart being in the eye of the beholder episode...

Warduke was awesome. He's also on the game cover back in the woods.

What's the point? Well soooorry! For some folks running around in light-weight fur accoutrement IS the point.

No, while they looked vaguely similar-the fat Sir John's was the coward (granted he redeemed himself at the end of the episode) but Strongheart-(who I used to have the action figure for) forever emblazoned in my mind what a Paladin should be.
That he is crouching in the underbrush is exactly what I was wondering but Big Fella beat me to it.

I didn't have cable as a kid. Broke my heart that I couldn't watch the D&D cartoon saturday mornings. I'm still in therapy because of it.

We have the D&D cartoon series on DVD and my kids have watched all the episodes, but i'm not up to snuff on all the characters!

Depends on who's wearing it!

I actually wrote alternate rules for this game when a friend of mine found it cheap and decided we had to play it. He uses those rules now when he plays it with his daughter, who is a friend of my daughter.

lol...hilarious find.

I have vague good memories of watching that cartoon on saturday mornings as a kid. a roll-and-move game seems a little 'off', but alas, such is life.

DRANCE said...

The point is obvious, my friend: another way to gather more of the almight buck! ;-)

There was a Saturday morning cartoon? That's funny. Tim made me watch Hawk (the Slayer), movie I think it was called. I don't remember a lot, but I do remember tin foil walls. Or something made of tin foil.

The characters like Strongheart and Warduke were from the D&D Toy line, which also tied into a supplement for Basic D&D, The Shady Dragon Inn (which I have). The Shady Dragon in was like the Rogue's Gallery for Basic fans. Inside those covers were drawings by Tim Truman and Jeff Easley, and they statted these "special characters" up.

Orcus would make it less pointless!
