Today’s strip refers to a trope found only in D&D and first-person-shooters: the character with the golf bag of weapons. Somehow the protagonist in your average FPS carries a pistol, shotgun, machine gun, rocket launcher, and a variable melee weapon such as a crowbar, wrench, or chainsaw. Likewise, in most editions of the game, fighter-type characters collect and assortment of weapons looted from fallen enemies used for bypassing damage reduction, a change in necessary tactics, or in the event of broken weaponry. But, like all things in the game, it can quickly descend down into the dank cellar of total absurdity with a vast arsenal of eclectic weaponry strapped to the warrior’s back.

Oh, and in 3e, gibbering mouthers had DR/5 bludgeoning.
