    Qarr is becoming more of an annoyance to V. Qarr is trying to bargain with V and is failing.

    Seconded!

    That was a close one. Glad to see V hasn't joined the Dark Side yet.

    Ah, subverting audience expectations. Classic OotS.

    Good strip.

    Awesome. I was starting to think V would actually turn to the dark side. Story allowed it to go both ways. I wonder is Qarr will weasle his way into surviving?

    So much for the V getting Qarr as an ally theory that's floated around at random.

    Love to see a little destructive side of V showing itself again.

    I could still see V end up taking a bargain after this incident, but it is refreshing to see V try to shoot the annoying imp first.

    Hmm, well, Vaarsuvius seems pretty adamant in his disagreement, so I am intrigued as to where this will lead. Good strip, anyhow. Can never have too much .

    Oh who didn't see that coming? Subversion are more common than going the regular route nowadays.

    I mean how is an imp supposed to turn V towards the 'dark side' anyway? "A deal with demons? That's never gone wrong for anyone!"

    Still a damn good comic.

    V just keeps looking worse and worse as the series goes on. I wonder if he/she is going to make it to the comics end.

    V is too smart for the imp, and has a healthy dose of self respect.

    Just aim better with your next spell mr/mrs wizard.

    "glue your lips to their ass."

    Haha. I suppose V was clever enough to realize that given the little Imp was intentionally obscuring the nature of his "little project", it was certainly not going to be a pleasant task.

    Hm, nice to see V hasn't caved in to devil. But it will be even more interesting to see what happens next.

    Personally, I can almost feel the switch of scenery again. Perhaps back to Elan and Durkon on boats? Haven't seen the two of them for quite some time now.

    Many thanks to El Goonish Shive for the banner image.

    Give a player a fish, and he’ll probably try to sell it to an NPC fisherman.

    Teach a player to fish, and next week he’ll show up with the book, “The Complete Adventuring Fisherman”. He’ll start hunting for some monstrous leviathan to catch and enslave, and he’ll be dual-wielding two fishing poles.

    I was reading this and thinking, "Well, this is how it starts. Vaarsuvius' descent into evil." And then POW! Score one for the crazy elf!
