    * Puts on headband of intellect *

    Uhm, actually recalling and learning from personal experience is WIS and not INT.

    * Pushes glasses up the bridge of my nose *

    Really now, it’s this misconception that is really hurting the game. I will now go on a rant about how my interpretation of the stats is correct despite it being fairly ambiguous and confusing.

      Umm… actually recalling information is INT.

      The first line under “intelligence” in the PHB is:

      “An Intelligence check comes into play when you need to draw on logic, education, memory, or deductive reasoning.”

      Hell, even the keen mind feat, which gives you perfect memory for a month, gives you INT.

        I know people like to “well actually” me after every single comic I post here, but give me at least a little credit…

        I do take 5 minutes to check the rules before I spend multiple hours drawing a joke about them.

          Okay, sorry about that. I was making a joke about things and yeah, it didn’t read as well as I thought it would in my head.

      Where is that from?

        It was meant to be a spoof on how everyone has different opinions on the difference on what INT and WIS are, as well as a meta-commentary on the difference between INT and WIS (arguing a set of semantics on a webcomic where the joke wouldn’t make sense under your rules is a high-INT, low-WIS action, IMO).
