he looks like that guy from Full Metal Alchemist
I was thinking more along the lines of Log Horizon and the schemers with glasses in that story.
A Shiroe or Crusty cameo in the background would be fun and a nice tongue in cheek commentary on Phil’s chosen affectation.
Definitely a Shiroe moment.
all villians wear glasses
Not gonna lie, I have been known to put points into skills (in videogames) just because it would give me some cosmetic effect, like glowing eyes.
D&D 3.5 Forgotten Realms had a feat especially for adding a cosmetic effect to spells. I forget what it’s called right now, but it served no other purpose at all.
Found it! It’s named ‘Spell Thematics’, and it turns out I was too harsh. In addition to adding an auditory or visual effect to every spell, it raises the DC to identify spells modded with it by +5.
Obviously not. Alchemists don’t get cantrips.
Incorrect. D&D alchemist do get cantrips.
My mistake. I thought you were using Pathfinder 1E, still. ^^;
By the way, I didn’t know D&D had an Alchemist class. Which system is it in? 3.5? 5e?
For the comic- they decided to use wiki data from Dungeons and Dragons because of the wealth of it- and because Kate wanted something Phil would recognize and geek out over. Since their characters used to be Pathfinder characters- they have been converted and given a few unique abilities as hold overs from their Pathfinder characters.
D&D 5e – Artificer Alchemist Subclass.
For a proper Villain Behind Glasses, he should have pushed them up his nose to achieve the glint… but still, perfection.
Phil is having the time of his life. He’s living what is probably his number 1 fantasy. Probably the only way it would get better for him would be if Kate was still a catgirl.
