Oots is what made fantasy web-comics popular. Drawn in the characteristic stick figure style of Rich Burlew, Order of the Stick started as mainly a place to comment on the latest rules of Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 Edition but now it is a living, breathing fantasy world with heroes, villains, and a scheme to end the world. It still makes fun of D&D, comic 733 making fun of the D&D spell "Sending" and its 25 word limit exceptionally well.

The Order of the Stick (OOTS) is a comedic webcomic that celebrates and satirizes tabletop role-playing games and medieval fantasy through the ongoing tale of the eponymous fellowship of heroes. The comic is written and illustrated by Rich Burlew, who creates the comic in a colorful stick figure style.

Taking place in a magical world that loosely operates by the rules of 3.5 edition Dungeons and Dragons, the comic follows the sometimes farcical exploits of six flawed adventurers as they strive to save the world from an evil lich. Much of the comic's humor stems from these characters either being aware of the game rules that affect their lives or having anachronistic knowledge of modern culture, which in turn is often used by the author to parody various aspects of role-playing games and fantasy fiction. While primarily comedic in nature, The Order of the Stick features a continuing storyline serialized in one- to four-page episodes, with over 700 such episodes released so far.

The award-winning comic is both a critical and popular success, having received strong praise from reviewers in the comic and role-playing press on the basis ...
