    Oh, Belkar... Really doing his part for the team, these days, even if just for his own reasons.

    A sneaky jab at the "morally justified" threads, perhaps?

    I look forward to the next few strips- seeing Bellkar dangling before the maw of a gigantic worm is something I didn't realize I really wanted to see until now.

    Also, good old Durkon remembered to bring the cat.

    not exactly a funny strip, but it gets the story moving...

    That sounds so much like an actual cpnversation that could take place in a game that it's awesome.

    Very true.

    Also: V carrying Durkon is weird.

    I get the impression that Rich is mocking the rash of morality themed threads that have plauged the forums recently.

    And even if he wasn't, that's how I'll choose to interpet this strip.

    Very nice, Belkar almost had me going there for a moment.

    It's also nice to see V tackle yet another problem without blasting it to bits and instead actually thinking.

    Maybe V can get the worm in some sort of more permanent enchantment, and it and Blackwing must compete for their master's affection. There can be only one familiar!

    ...can there be only one familiar? I'm sure someone's figured out how to have like 20 of them.

    Well, I'm not so sure how sneaky it is, but, yeah. I'm in total agreement with you here.

    ...

    Cue the "Wait, Belkar agreed with doing it, while mocking it. Therefore it really is evil" threads in three... two... one...

    Man, good click timing for the day. Excellent strip, and I honestly can't wait to see how many people are gonna post this as a 'This is how Belkar is going to die!' thread.

    Jab or no jab, this strip was hilarious because it flows so well. Like a real conversation.

    Also it's a pretty epic jab.

    Well, the thread DOES provide incontrovertable proof of Miko's innocence, after all.

    What a great use of Belkar - by highlighting how much he doesn't fit. :)

    Poor Mr Scruffy, Durkon clearly has no idea how to hold a cat.
