Webcomic: Chainmail Bikini
A gaming webcomic about a group of Munchkin players getting the best of their uncreative Dungeon Master, as brought to you by the minds behind DM of the Rings and is in fact something of a sequel.

You can find it here.

If you're looking for the trope, see Chainmail Bikini.


This work contains examples of:

  • Artifact Title: Sapphire, who wears the titular bikini, is killed off fairly early on.
  • Awesome McCoolname: Josh's min-maxed character, "xXKillstealer69Xx."
  • Black Comedy Rape: Whether they intended it to be rape or not, an early comic where Ramgar (at the least) gropes Marcus's female character did not sit well with readers.
    • Ramgar's backstory also includes impregnating an entire female priesthood, for which he was forced to do penance... which he carried out through a bloody killing spree until he killed the right guy. And the whole story is ultimately to justify him possessing a very powerful spear.
  • Brick Joke: The potion given to resurrect Sapphire
  • Chainmail Bikini: The strip takes its name from Marcus's first character.
  • Complacent Gaming Syndrome: In-universe, taken Up to Eleven in the "finale" comic.
  • Crossover: Aragorn's player from DM of the Rings shows up at one point.
  • Cross Player: Marcus, to the annoyance of the other players.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: All of Marcus's characters were meant to die horribly as a running gag. The makers of the comic mentioned that this ended up coming off as more mean-spirited than funny.
  • Fanservice: All of Marcus's characters.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: During the final battle against Deuse Baaj, Casey, who was going for a Total Party Kill out of frustration, makes up a rule that a character couldn't cast spells while falling after Marcus' character gets knocked out the window. Naturally, the players throw it right back in his face after the same thing happens to Deuse Baaj.
  • Munchkin: Josh, to a hardcore degree. Seen when Casey suggests using a game system no one knows to "break up the drudgery."
    Chuck: You mean the drudgery of having a balanced system with rules we all understand?
    Casey: I mean the drudgery of having Josh employ a bunch of game demolishing exploits.
    Josh: Let me see this new rulebook... I will make it my bit--
    Chuck: NO! Don't give him that book!
  • Revive Kills Zombie: The party hits Deuse Baaj with a resurrection potion to destroy him. Chuck rules that it simply brings him back to life (so instead of a Lich Necromancer, he's a mortal one).
  • Unfortunate Names: The villain of the campaign is named "Deuse Baaj". Doesn't take long for others to simply refer to him as Douchebag.
  • Women Are Wiser: The sole female gamer in the group is also the most sensible. She's still a Jerkass like everyone else, but it's still noticeable.
