D&D Context Edit
- A Bag of Tricks can produce only certain animals, according to its color. They can be gray, rust, or tan. Despite being orange in the comic, it appeared that Roy had the gray version, as it had previously produced only rodents and mustelids. This time it produced a rhinoceros. The title of the comic urges the readers to ignore this fact.
- Rapid Shot is a feat that allows a character to shoot an extra arrow, but all arrows have less chance to hit that turn.
