* SocialSemiCircle: [[http://yamara.com/2006/05/18/yamaras-dreme/ A strip]] featured the title character (a halfling in a D&D gameworld) having a dream in which she sees the gaming groups from ''[[ComicStrip/KnightsOfTheDinnerTable KoDT]]'', ''DorkTower'' and ''Commissioned'' and wonders why they're all on one side of the table. The answer: "Because the ''other'' side...is for people like ''you''."

--> '''Ogrek''' ''(criticizing Yamara's pack full of traditional adventuring gear):'' Waterskin? Take a dowsing rod instead. Rope? Extra-long elastic cords are better. And forget all these iron rations. I'll take you to a nice restaurant. You'll need some springs, a whoopee cushion, a songbird, and an inflatable raft - just to be on the safe side. Judicious use of the jetpack should [[MediumAwareness allow you to remain in the 'unencumbered' category throughout the adventure

The setting uses [[RPGMechanicsVerse mechanics]] from the ''[[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons AD&D]]'' [[RolePlayingGame RPG]]. It follows the misadventures of a party of monster hunters: Yamara Tooke (a halfling Fighter/Thief), Joe Holy (a human Cleric of St. Nobian's, the church that funds the group), Fëa of Ping Forest (an elf Magician and former Game Show Hostess), and Blag (a dwarf fighter). Blag and Fea eventually faded out of the storyline, while several other characters rose to starring roles - Fëa's familiar Ralph, Ogrek the Undisciplined, Persephone the love-sick vampire, Matron [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Stress]] of the dark elf city of Ekmuz-Strel-Thridd, and more. Although their adventures started on the generic gameworld planet Wyhtl, the cast did take an extended trip via {{Spelljammer}} to the world of [[TabletopGame/DarkSun Hard Fun]] in order to mock it for a while.

Added DiffLines:

* RedLightDistrict: The drow city has an ''infra-red'' light district which advertises "Boys! Boys! Boys!" (since drow are matriarchical).

A 'relaunch' set after a three-year timeskip ran from 2004-2006 and unceremoniously stopped mid-story.
