    hey! something to be thankfull for

    And because someone will ask, Blackwing's eyes are lighting up because when a wizard casts a spell on himself, the familiar can share it. The bird probably has a higher spot check than V anyway...

    So, is that a treasure chest, a rock, or the dungeon?

    (Look at Elan and Haley in the first panel )

    No it's a reference to the strip where everyone says Blackwing doesn't exist.

    Also, wow this comic turned up without me even seeing it

    See, Elan does consistently find good things without effort. Is it me, or has Roy not had any emotions since the hiatus ended? That strip needed more Belkar.

    It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and furry, signifying nothing. But enough about your story of your first child's death, you could all use an update on my problems.

    To who ever starts another thread about Belkar's death, To the last I grapple with thee... from Hell's heart I stab at thee... For hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee.

    Ooh, plot advancement. :D Roy is using everyone's assets. And being subtle about it. Nice. XD

    Although...

    Split up? Split up?

    Good old Elan, I hope he finds it. That's actually very smart of Roy, using Elan. Although I agree, splitting up is a terrible idea. And poor V. Nobody remembers his/her familiar.

    Generation 31: When you see this signature, ignore it. This isn't a social experiment.

    78% of people didn't even notice the erroneous apostrophe in the signature meme this snarky message is based on. If you're one of the 22% who was horrified to see the language abuse, put this in your signature.

    It can be inferred from the first panel that Belkar eliminated the spice from his system, thus leaving the worm no reason to follow the party when they left it.
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    YAY! We totally missed some action off panel for Belkar. No doubt more strips for the next book!

    I'm glad they're letting Elan do something.

    The only concern is, breaking the party up (just for a moment)... again? Dun dun dunnn...

    Aww, I was having fun at all the "WHERE IZ COMIC" threads.

    Good comic though.
    It's been a bit, GitP. If you're reading this, you're either digging through old stuff, or I've posted for the first time in forever.

    If you want to stay in touch, reach out to me on twitter (same username).

    The best answer is always to ask your DM.
    Unless you're the DM, in which case you should talk to your players.

    hehe, I have seen that strategy work before, although in a slightly different tune. Instead of just using true seeing, our wizard decided to mass summon monster I for Fiendish Hawks, I'm not really sure why he decided to research that in the first place, but it was his style. I think he probably used the spell once more in the campaign.

    Not just any stupidity. Dramatically-beneficial stupidity. The latter is convenient. The former is usually not. And Roy is learning the difference.
