D&D Context Edit

  • The comic's title refers to Attacks of Opportunity, which allows a person to make a free melee attack on certain conditions, such as an opponent leaving a space when you are nearby. This is known as "leaving a threatened area." Yikyik, apparently, is not hesitant when it comes to abusing it.
  • Normally, characters can only make one Attack of Opportunity per round, however if they've selected the Combat Reflexes feat they can make more.
  • Warrior-type classes are known for their "kick-in-the-door" playstyle, hence Belkar's insult of calling Thog a "big dumb door opener."

Trivia Edit

  • This is the first time Thog refers to Roy as "talky-man."
