The Order of the Stick

Updated on February 5, 2013

The Order of the Stick

The Order of the Stick web comic began in 2003. I found it shortly after that while browsing the internet at work. (Don't tell my boss). I laughed so hard that I cried.

Not only were the Dungeons & Dragons references funny, but the sheer geek factor and delicious satire had me hooked.

The Order of the Stick are a band of Heroes. They go on various quests, killing monsters, racking up XP, liberating treasure, and finding arcane objects of power. They are a diverse group of adventures that do not always get along.

Read on to learn why I love The Order of the Stick.

Members of The Order of the Stick

Adventurers Extraordinaire

Members of The Order of the Stick

Roy Greenhilt - Fearless leader of this band of heroes. A tough, experienced fighter who tries to keep everything on track.

Haley Starshine - Female rogue of extraordinary cunning, ready any time with an arrow and a quick pick. Hopelessly in love with Elan.

Belkar Bitterleaf - Hafling, ranger, and miscreant of the party. He is always ready for a fight. Hates Vaarsuvius.

Durkon Thundershield - Durkon, the cleric of Thor, can be counted on for healing and a hard hammer.

Elan the Bard - Dashing and handsome, and slightly dumb, Elan is a joy to be around, except for those who are constantly around him.

Vaarsuvius - She, or he, or whatever, the master wizard with the pet raven is always ready with a rune or spell. Engages in deadly practical jokes with Belkar.

My Favorite OOTS Character

Haley Starshine

Haley Starshine is definitely my favorite Order of the Stick character. I don't know if it is because she is a girl, or a rogue, or because she kicks butt with her bows and arrows. It is probably all those things.

I tend to play rogues in games, so it might be that. Come to think of it I was once hopelessly in love with an idiot, so maybe that is it...

Haley loves gold, like all rogues. She never passes by a chance to loot treasure. This makes her seem materialistic and despicable to the others sometimes, but we learn Haley has a reason.

Haley Starshine Quote

If we start making a scene, knocking off hobbo's left and right, we're gonna have a sorcerer lich ALL up in our business faster than you can say, "inappropriate encounter level." ~ Haley Starshine - # 467

Great OOTS Stuff from Amazon

Long time readers will love to look back on their favorite strips and new readers will appreciate catching up.
