Role-playing games (RPGs) have always been a source of endless fun, imagination, and camaraderie. But what if you could experience the hilarity and heartwarming moments that occur both in and out of the game world through a web comic? That’s where “Nameless PCs” come into play. Created by the talented Michael Tillotson, this web comic has been delighting readers with its quirky and relatable characters since 2010.
This web comic centers around a group of endearingly awkward individuals who share a common passion for role-playing games. From the first strip to the latest ones, it’s evident that this comic is not just about gaming but also about the everyday struggles and triumphs of its characters. The term “PCs” in the title stands for “Player Characters,” which are the main protagonists in an RPG adventure. However, these characters are far from being mere game pieces; they are richly developed and beautifully flawed individuals who you can’t help but root for.
