    Glad to see another update ...

    Heh... DruidCon... But really nice comic.

    @V: "Yes First!" and "Wahoo! First post/page!" are considered contraband in this thread . I'm sure someone will link the rules in a second.

    EDIT2: You know there hasn't been a double pager in quite a while...

    Way back in Dungeon Crawling Fools, when they find a loo, and V's excuse for "not going" is that V doesn't need to, for long periods.

    And Elan gets the idea that V is half-camel then.

    EDIT:

    I dig the extra arms on the bugfolk.

    And the bola joke is sweet; I thought it was trending towards Belkar copping an icy burst off Haley.

    Four arms, medium size- probably thri-keen, if we assume Rich is unlikely to go too far afield (they are in MM2)

    There are others (those outsiders in the Monster Manual) but these aren't really associated with desert.

    Thri-keen was my guess as well...

    Belkar probably won't be captured, but there's always the chance he ends up in trouble because of Durkon, causing the Dwarf to feel guilty.

    Woah! This one was great! I love V's line:

    "You are a bottomless pit of self-reference, are you not?"

    And the last panels are really funny. I missed some action in the last strips, so this looks really interesting.

    Is that Haley's long lost sister being abducted in panel 7?

    Heehee. Love V's line. "You are a bottomless pit of self-reference, are you not?"
    And Belkar picks a fight with another team member. I wonder if this will become a running gag.

    Even more funny: Belkar could cast "Endure Elements" himself, if he could raise his wisdom high enough to cast a first-level spell in his primary class!

    Good title. I can picture the bola being swung back and forth and having the cat lunge.

    Woo new comic! I checked again after checking like 5 minutes ago and there it is! :D

    Anyway awesome as always. I'm just hoping Belkar won't get caught by the bandits and will have to be rescued by the team, that would really repeat itself. xD

    Unfortunately, he's not wise enough to realize that. Talk about self-defeating...

    I'm wondering if those steeds are ankhegs- while they appear to carry multiple riders and look very big for Large creatures, it is the simplest explanation.

    I love Belkar so much recently. Is this Rich's way of making sure we all cry when he dies? Because it's working!
