Full Frontal Nerdity is a weekly webcomic by Aaron Williams (also the creator of Nodwick and PS238). It focuses on the roleplaying sessions of four tabletop gaming friends, all of them typical nerds in bad need of a life. The characters are:
Frank, the Game Master. Overweight and socially awkward.
Frank: "Due to rampant thefts, field destruction, zombie cattle, poisoned wells, attempted murder, and a relatively mundane aphid problem, your town can expect to suffer fifty percent population loss."
Attack Backfire: In the Halloween 2014 arc, a demon tried eating Lewis's soul, only to discover that he has such a large "soul debt" due to his contract with Emma that Lewis ended up sucking souls out of the demon!
Much later on, they play a game where Shawn, Lewis, and Nelson are different would-be Santas with unique powers and paradigms competing to see who wins and determines the course of Christmas. The winner ended up being Shawn, playing a Heavy Metal Krampus version of Santa.
Later, Emma claims that soul-sucking otherworldly entities actually do drop everything when you throw Hostess Fruit Pies at them. Partially subverted, as it's due to older rituals where something was given in offering in exchange for the entities' departure.
Frank: Okay, having gotten hopelessly lost, you're forced to spend the night in the forest. When your characters awaken, they discover that they'd been ravaged by dire mosquitoes to the tune of 3D6 worth of blood loss. As the vultures circle and the sun climbs, you begin to suffer heat exhaustion... Due to multiple insect bites and the fact that you had to sleep on the rocky ground, all your feat and skill rolls will be at minus five for the next day and a half.
Lewis: I vote that our D&D game gets a week off after your parents make you go camping.
I Call It "Vera": Lewis calls one of his character's broadswords Betsy and a lightsaber Lucille.
Shawn may be one as well. When the other players question how they can be certain his die rolls will be fair (they rely on him reporting the results, since he plays by webcam) he offers them each a +5 vorpal swordthat he randomly rolled as a show of faith.
Really, all three players are Munchkins. Nelson is just the best one at it.
Nelson: I was under a minus four penalty [to hit] because I was laughing my kiester off.
Too Spicy for Yog Sothoth: In the Halloween 2014 arc, they wind up in a house with a demon that tries to eat the souls of everyone present (using a "Now Serving Number X" ticker). Lewis ends up with a 1 and is therefore the first victim but the demon finds out that his preexisting contract with Emma means that he's got compound interest on his soul, meaning that he's "got a soul-debt so big that trying to eat it is like trying to suck a milkshake out of the guts of an industrial vacuum cleaner set to 'Black Hole.'"
What Did I Do Last Night?: The main characters went to a New Years Eve party at the "Goblin Hole" and look through their pockets to figure out what they did while under the influence of "Klingon War Nog". Frank finds a character sheet for the elf ranger from the D&D movie, Lewis finds a receipt for the Everquest sourcebooks, and Nelson (who hates anime) found Yu-Gi-Oh! cards.
When Frank's nephew entered a pine-box derby, Frank and Nelson drilled a hole "whose geometry looks straight out of the Necronomicon with a drill bit that may have gone through someone's skull" in the car. They blanked out at the pine-box derby; when they came to, they'd been dumped in a basement to scream themselves unconscious after tearing a hole in reality.
Xanatos Gambit: Frank started a game with about four major power players in the background, with dangling plot hooks for each so the group could go for any of them without derailing his planned game. They decide to take all the plot hooks, so that no matter what they come out ahead because they've been playing everyone off against everyone else to their own benefit. It turns out to be Frank's own Batman Gambit because he fully planned for them to bite all the plot hooks in hopes of making off with the bait, tricking them into roleplaying and thinking through a campaign they normally would have just fought through.
