"The Order of the Stick is a comedic fantasy webcomic that satirizes pencil and paper roleplaying games (particularly Dungeons and Dragons and its accompanying system, d20) through the continuing tale of the titular party of adventurers...

The comic's central protagonists, known collectively as "The Order of the Stick," or simply The Order, are a party of adventurers who are questing to destroy an evil lich and save the world from his plan to conquer it."

"It is drawn and authored in a deliberate stick figure style by Rich Burlew, a graphic designer and aspiring game designer...

A significant portion of the humor of the strip is based on the characters being aware of the game rules which govern their lives -- they discuss their hit points, their class levels, the chances of random encounters, and stop in the middle of combat to check their "to hit" modifiers. The humor of OOTS is best appreciated by those who are familiar with the conventions and cliches of paper & pencil roleplaying games (specifically, the d20 system, as the Third Edition of D&D is known)."
