    How many bridges are there in a desert, anyway?

    I get the feeling some locals may not have been entirely honest.

    wow, updated just as i thought, "I wonder if OOTS updated yet, it's been on a roll recently..."

    anyways, well done as per usual. Love the commentary on fantasy "armor," and I can't wait to see if haley's boots actually end up coming in handy in this arc.

    And is it wrong for me to think that even stick figures can look sexy in leather armor?

    Bridges? I don't get it, I must be being thick.. Still, Elan is being spoony. Yay!

    Hm, so Haley has changed haircut, boots and armor? Wow, pretty much a full appearance change... and in well under 100 strips!

    Hmmm, considering in 3rd Ed Plate tends to be incredibly impracticable under the best of circumstances (let alone in a desert), the idea a Leather Headband confers more AC than it is quite believable.

    Old gag.

    "If you believe that, I've got a bridge down in Brooklyn I can sell you".

    Needless to say, it is said by people who do not own the Brooklyn bridge after a doubtful statement.

    Since when Durkon is an expert about leather armors?

    Or was that comment about his religious zealotry?

    Anyway, shouldn't desert armor include some sort of head protection, like turban?

    Loving the update rate.

    This comic reminded me so much of good old times. And good to finally have clarification on their outfits. I always thought she wore long pants because of how hard on the knees short ones would be for a tumbling acrobatic rogue, but it's nice to be sure. Elan's quip about boots was nice too.

    And heh, she still has the lime green boots. XD She's been carrying them, what, seven years now? XD

    Bad idea, though, Haley, with the "flaunty" armour. You certainly don't want to get sunburned in a desert, especially not with a redhead's complexion.

    Deuce = 2

    So since the aim of the game is to get as close to 21 as possible, drawing a lot of 2s means a lot of hits (draws).

    (NOTE: 2 because aces [1s] are also worth 11, depending on choice of the player)... although I guess it'd be 10 cards with all 2s and 11 with 1/11s... i need to stop thinking about these things.

    "deuce" means "two" in cards. If you had a deck filled with twos, you'd be hitting a lot in Blackjack.


    "No thanks, armor interferes with my class abilities"

    That was my favorite line in this strip.

    Wow... the Giant posted a new comic while I was gaming on the forum... sweet!

    Anyone else feel a Dark-Sun theme to this land? Even the title... it'll cost you an Armor Leg, that's an old 2nd Ed Dark Sun Piecemeal Armor rule. Nevermind the haggling...

    If V scorches the earth when he casts a spell we'll all know the truth...

    Good Gaming!

    Stick figure softcore: it's even SFW!

    Sidenote: It seems like she's going to be wearing the boots of speed permanently now. Any chance she could get Elan's Boots of Elvenkind touched up too? The shopkeeper certainly got enough cash in that transaction to do it.

    EDIT: It also seems like Durkon's eyeing a v-cut chestpiece like Roy's. Maybe they're in vogue? (Or maybe it's just hot )

    Nice! Better armor, art uppgrade (again. Last one was 2 strips ago ), and finally Haley will get her boots of speed in a not-so-lime-green hue. YAY!
