''[[http://www.moderntales.com/comics/dumnestor.php Dumnestor's Heroes]]'' is a webcomic by Irony-chan (also the creator of ''Webcomic/GetMedieval'') about an adventuring party in a classic {{Fantasy}} setting who are really the player characters of a group of tabletop gamers.

The in-game story is that an elf prince got turned into a human as the result of a poorly-worded request to his god, and he and a dwarven accountant are rescued from their orc abductors by a female human rogue. The three of them find themselves caught into a series of adventures--because the junior god who made the initial mistake is trying to justify himself before the rest of the pantheon by claiming he intends to take the characters on a heroic quest.

The series has been on indefinite hiatus since January 2010, and the website hosting it went down in early 2013.
