JeffEpisode #120: “Spell Spec”

A wizard, Vizier Wald, holds his magic staff up and proclaims that now, with the powers of Coubah-Deg, he will be unstoppable. He laughs maniacally in front of Jeff and Jerry, who are equipped with medieval helmets and equipment. Jeff smiles and retorts guess what, Vizier Wald, he has the power of metagaming and has maxed out his entire tech research tree. Jerry adds that he's put all his experience points into carry weight and inventory size. Vizier Wald stares in silence for a moment, then asks so what, he holds the power of a god in his hands. Jeff turns to Jerry and asks him if he would like to show him their power. Jerry says with pleasure and suddenly takes out of his backpack a gigantic cannon, which he aims straight at Vizier Wald, then lights the fuse. Vizier Wald holds up a hand and tells them woah woah woah, hold on now, let's not get too drastic. Jeff lowers his faceplate in response.
Jeff and Jerry fire the cannon at Vizier Wald, who screams no. The cannonball hits him with 2 damage. Vizier Wald's massive health bar pops up, a tiny fraction of it gone. He stares at Jeff and Jerry, who stare back dumbfounded. Vizier Wald fires a massive magic ray at them as Jeff asks if they put any points into their strength or attack. Jerry replies that he put points into energy and asks if that's not it. We see Jeff and Jerry's status bars, with miniscule health, attack and energy, except Jerry whose energy is massive. The end.

  1. This is what happens when I try to play DnD,
    i min-max into the wrong thing and then die lol

  2. Episode 12- fun facts!

    1) More anagrams! COUBAH-DEG is DOUCHEBAG, I’ll let you see if you can work out the complicated VIZIER WALD for yourself.
    2) All of Vizier’s magic effects are in-game, which saves me a lot of Photoshop time.
    3) It’s annoying to pose helmets on these fellas.

    Thanks to: Cathode Ray Kobold for Halloween Crypt map, madneo for Placeable Particle Effects, DarkMario for Skyrim Weapon Pack, Alex for TF2 Enhanced Cannon, flarespire for Dissidia FF Weapons Pack, Booger_Doodles for Medieval Props, Nahka & Rastifan for Medieval Weapons Pack, and aE.KoZ for Medieval RP Content.

  3. Guess the power of metagaming doesn’t matter if focused on the wrong skills.
    The mechanics of RPGs’ are unforgiving, indeed.

    Nice usage of the placeable particle effects!

  4. Is this a comic? I’m pretty sure they’re just actual composite screenshots from every rpg I’ve ever played. And no way those effects are in-game! They look fantastic.
