Phantasy Warrior Advance: This Thing I Won'T Help You With (PWA 4.1)
There is something entertaining to me about bureaucracy in a fantasy realm. Generally, most fantasy settings (in games and such) have a lot more in common with the modern world than any sort of medieval society, but I rarely see enough modern red tape. Go to the weapon shop and buy a magical, automatic crossbow? No waiting period. Buy a boat? No licensing or insurance requirements. Of course, it would be a super-not-fun game if you had to go through that kind of stuff. The very idea that you have to go to "hero school" or go through a "heroic apprentice program" to be a hero is absurd, but when you consider how much certification and sanctioning we do in the modern age, it only makes sense that being an adventurer or a hero would have the same level of bureaucratic nonsense.
Some people may be wondering what "Rule 6" is. No, this is not a subtle reference to some sort of strange Internet meme or some pornographic oddity. But, as the joke continues into the next comic, I'll wait a bit before revealing that.
