    It is good to know the thieves guild is SEC approved

    No stock market crash there...

    I can't believe Celia promised the thieves that... I have to say, I liked her better as a minor character. No offense to Celia fans.

    Dang, either Haley needs to be less secretive, or Celia less naive.

    Probably both.

    Is Celia NUTS?!?! She really has no clue. She obviously doesnt know about the dragon hoard. Of which, Haley has pretty well nothing left of her cut, but still owes on it. And Willie Nelson thought he had a problem with back taxes....

    Quite upset. I was beginning to wonder about when Haley's father was gonna get freed....but...now different complications arise...

    Such as...

    If Bozzak sent Ian away from the guild, how is she going to explain that she needs the money to get him back?

    Does she owe half of the dragon Hoard from the Starmetal side-quest? Because that was all destroyed...or most of it....

    And what the heck is going to happen with Crystal?!?

    Grr....but hey, motion in plot is still motion, if confusing.

    Now we know that using the corpses of the thieves' guild in exchange for Roy is out of the question, but Pete's body could be used.

    As for the 50%, the main problem is the dragon horde, which was destroyed in a fire.

    I think the Giant has just successfully lured us into a sense of false security and things are about to implode for the order even further.

    Really seems to be driving the point home that without Roy, everyone is pretty much borderline useless.

    Celia wants to raise the Thieves? I'm sure the dogs of Greysky and George's wife thank her for it.

    That's not what's causing my opinion of her to do a 180 right now. What bothers me is the fact that she decided to do it with Haley's money without consulting her first. Nagging Haley and trying to convince her to finance giving the Thieves second chances at life would be acceptable...but spending Haley's money without asking? I hope she ends up expelled from Law School for her chronic absenteeism.

    But seriously though, good comic. Opens the door to learn how Celia reacts to how the Thieves Guild operates and Haley's desire to free her father.

    Soooooooo...I know that Celia doesn't QUITE know the extent of what she just did there (but is probably about to find out)...but man...this comic stopping where it does seems like Rich's attempt to at least temporarily make a character more hated than Miko. Heh.

    People, Haley only owes 50% of what she has stolen since she left, not what she has earned. It's not income tax. It's a fee for the right to burgle. She did not steal the dragon's hoard, nor most of the money she earned as an adventurer. Thus, it will not be subject to this deal.

    It is still likely that she owes thousands of gold pieces, though.

    However, I'm going to be probably the only person to say that I see no problem with Celia using Haley's money to resurrect the people Haley killed over her objections (and illegally, I might add).

    How much longer does Haley put up with Celia? It was kinda a nice change of pace from all the killing though.

    50% of what she stole in Greysky since quitting the Guild? That I could understand. I guess Celia's fault for not wording it right. That's a negotiator's job. Wording things right. Good on her, then.

    Great comic.

    At least they get Roy back. And if Haley told the others about her father, then ther should be some possibilities to rescue him. Bozzok should be able to arrange for his release, since he send him there in thge first place. Hank shouldn't care about that part because it will cost him (and the guild) nothing, and Bozzok probably prefers it to another round of 'freeze the fighter'.

    Well, it may well be worded more precisely in the contract. Rich has a limited amount of panel space.

    However, even if it were 50% of what she stole from anyone, anywhere since leaving the guild, it probably doesn't include money she got because her friend the elven wizard disintegrated a black dragon near her. In no reasonable interpretation of the facts did she "steal" that money. If anything, Vaarsuvius stole it and gave part of it to her as a gift, and that's stretching it.

    Which in retrospect, it probably doesn't. The Thieves' Guild only has control over Greysky city. I trust Celia to understands that when making negotiations.

    Am I the only one who realizes that no one in Greysky knows how much Haley has stolen? She can just lie. Celia doesn't know either, so there's no way for Hank to know just how much he should get.

    IHO, mention of the SEC approval of licensed theft should have made it into this comic's title somehow.

    Does anyone happen to know what the "cryptograms" refers to?

    On a related note, why would anyone join the Thieves Guild in Greysky, given the outrageous fees? I know stealing there without being a member would be hazardous to your health, but why not just leave before starting a career as a professional criminal. It's not like its a great place to settle down in.
