I think I first stumbled across RealLife when someone on a forum I frequent posted a link to a comic she found funny, though to be honest, I don't remember which one it is.

I've always found it amusing, and when I didn't understand the joke (which used to be far more often than I care to admit anymore) I usually ended up finding out.

So now thanks to Greg, I have seen 2001: A Space Odyssey, table top RPG, and have just recently discovered the addictiveness of DDR (when the machine isn't broken or my ankle isn't killing me, I think I've only played it three different days now.)

Not quite sure if I should be thankful or not. Currently I am leaning towards, "yes"

If I recall correctly, I was linked there from RPG World too.

I was drawn to it by its aura of Unsurpassed Excellence.

That, and one of my friends posted some of the strips on LiveJournal, for anyone familiar with that institution. :wink:

Can't remember exactly how I first got the link... just that somebody told me about a particular comic and I thought it was funny. So I read the entire archives there and then and have been hooked since.

Through a strange coincidence of Google. One night with nothing to do, I typed in my name, "Greg," and "Master Sword." I was rewarded with a link to the comic where Greg buys a copy of the Master Sword. My life has never been the same since... 8)

A long Time ago... well maybe 3-4 years ago... I stumbled upon a link to a comic on http://www.diabloii.net It was the dagger of the apoylopse comic. Well that was how I found it!

Half a year ago, I was enchanted by Dungeon Siege. I would surf the net for hours looking for great D S sites. One day a came across the packmule site. It had a section for every webcomic that did a D S bit. Reallife comics was one of them.

We have been in love ever since

Yeah, I'm not recalling an MT strip that Greg did - that'd be interesting to see though.
