I know I'm really late in discovering this but I've just finished the reading the archives of Order of the stick and I found it to be a wonderful read. Not only is it hilarious with 4th wall breaking jabs it takes about the rules and cliche fantasy RPG scenes. But I also feel that it is turning into a really good story and one I would have been ecstatic about playing a character in. What are your thoughts on this quirky web comic.

I used to read OotS daily but I haven't been back in several months due to other distractions. The last events I remember reading involved Roy's "Heaven" escapades. But yeah, I really enjoyed the comic for all of its tongue-in-cheek, self-referential satire on D&D and RPGs in general. It's a great comic and one that anyone who plays RPGs (D&D especially) should read.

If you enjoy OotS and aren't aware of it already, I think you would really enjoy 8-bit Theater as well. It is less D&D-centric but it is hilarious all the same. In some ways, 8-bit Theater's humor is a bit more cunning and I have laughed aloud several times throughout the series.

Both are excellent comics and worth checking out.

I love Order of the Stick. I don't have anything clever to add though :)

Belkar is awesome...I think because I've known PCs like that in some of our D&D games.

love OOTS and cann't wait to get back home and read the latest book (I don't read the web comic b/c I get too distracted with other stuff at work) and I own the board game which is really good fun too.

Three fantasy based comics I read are:
Looking for Group http://www.lfgcomic.com/
Ding! http://www.crispygamer.com/comics/ding/
Goblins http://www.goblinscomic.com/

The first two are heavily influenced by World of Warcraft but still are funny......at times.

So far I must also have to go with Belkar as a favorite. With Elan a close second. I know Belkar is an easy favorite but I can't help myself. When he brings out the sheet of lead I nearly cried from laughing so hard. And the "I'm a sexy shoeless god of war!"

goblins is humorous. i've been sorta following the girlgenius (http://www.girlgeniusonline.com) comics, probably because of the resemblence to the old phil and dixie comics. ^^ as in, once a month or two, i'll catch up what's happened since the last time i checked.
