As usual, Magnus the Magnificent's mouth is his greatest enemy...
Magnus the Magnificent remains to this day my favorite "accidental" character. All the other characters in the D&D story arc already existed as at least a rough concept well before the first immersive D&D strip was drawn. But taking Ash's father Magnus and putting him into the D&D story arc as Bayle's wizarding teacher was a spur-of-the-moment idea, and I put him into the strip that same day. Sometimes the best ideas are the ones that are completely unplanned.
As for the choice of safe word, I just couldn't resist. 😁
