Table Titans is a webcomic written and drawn by Scott Kurtz and colored by Steve Hamaker.[1] It is a spin-off of Kurtz's other webcomic PvP, and features the characters Andrew, Alan, Valerie and Darby, who have previously appeared in PvP comics. It chronicles their adventures of playing Dungeons & Dragons (D&D). D&D publisher Wizards of the Coast have partnered with Kurtz so that Table Titans can feature official D&D products. The comic will be an ongoing comic book, and will be collected in print twice a year.[2] The first comic premiered on January 28, 2013.[3][4]

Characters[edit]

Alan[edit]

A member of the Table Titans. In the first session of the comic where the characters play the "Mines of Madness" adventure he plays with Garret Murdor, a master thief and assassin.[5] Later he is told he can't use his own character for a D&D: Encounters campaign, so he is assigned Drake Shieldheart, a lawful good cleric.[6]

In the second session "Winter of the Iron Dwarf" Alan plays with another of his own characters: Arroc Crowforth, a Ranger.[7]

Andrew[edit]

A member of the Table Titans. Andrew plays the "Mines of Madness" using his character Quillion Hawkslight.[5] Later he plays using an assigned character: Sootfoot Lefleur, a halfling thief.[6] For the second session he decides to continue with Lefleur by leveling to level 5 as asked by Brendan.[7]

Val[edit]

The only female member of the Table Titans. Her character is Lulani,[8] a bard.[6] She is dating Skull from PvP. In session two she plays her own character Valeria Bronzebottom, a niece to Binwin Bronzebottom, Scott Kurtz' character from the Acquisitions Incorporated live game held at PAX.

Darby[edit]

A member of the Table Titans. Unlike the rest of the Titans, he is newer and unfamiliar with the rules of D&D.[9] His character is Draziw, a half-elf wizard.[6] While the other Titans were not initially fond of him, he is accepted as a full Titan by the end of the first season.[10]

Brendan[edit]

The dungeon master (DM) for the game. He values story ahead of stats. The Titans initially do not like him as a DM, but are forced to accept him because nobody else wants to put up with them.[11] Later, they warm up to him and decide to continue with him as their DM.[10]

Darius[edit]

The newest member of the Table Titans, Darius is first introduced as the bartender at Cafe Mox, the venue that the players use during the campaign for the Winotaur.[12] When the Table Titans restructure their group for the "Winter of the Iron Dwarf" campaign, they find that the group needs a healer, and Brendan recruits Darius to fill in as a player. Darius' character is Gar Dunwise, Paladin of Torm.[13]
