    Heh, nice one. The dinosaur was funny. Foreshadowing, perhaps, of Elan's happy ending?

    I like the way Elan still pictures himself in his old clothing.

    What's Girard going to say?

    To those who say that the timing is wrong for familicide, besides the fact that dry air can mummify bodies effectively, and this has been observed in real life, I offer this second thought:

    Given the keywords and Girard's attitude towards Soon, I'm not sure this is a success...

    I am QUITE curious over what Girard is going to say. (Or the illusion of him will.)
    Given this comic seems sort of easy to do I wonder if not another could follow soon...
    (I bet Rich have not been too happy with the recent delays. He might want to catch up.)

    No one said "Gate", yet the illusion accepted that as a keyword. Just being nit-picky. I love the Elanosaurus Rex drawing! LOL

    I'm not sure if this has been hashed out before, but it looks to me as if Girard's tattoo is a stylized dragon coming out of his mouth, right where his teeth would be, as in his last name.

    Foreshadowing to Elan actually becoming a dinosaur. Drama demands it!
    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.

    I guess Roy must have said, "Where is this stupid Gate?!?" to himself in frustration in the panel before this comic started.

    Huh, when I did a desert campaign the entrance was a trap that filled with sand (magically) and only opened the door once the room was totally filled with sand. Pretty easy to work around but for some reason my dopey pc's were all whiney about how hard it was to work out.

    I checked it thrice before coming on the board to comment. It is not good for the characters. I smell traps nearby.

    EDIT: okay, the Giant himself shut me down...

    IT LIVES... Oh for crying out loud, a major cliff-hanger?
    Awesome Elanasaurus though. But how would he cuddle Haley with those tiny arms? And where does Banjhulu feed into all of this? He clearly hasn't thought this through.

    isnt it also possible that he keyed all the names of the old party, and the generic term gate as well?

    Differences aside, why would he just have the name of soon and the sapphire guard as the password?

    Heehee. Elan keeps forgetting he has new clothes.
    Those keywords seem like they'd be very easy for a bad guy to get.

    I think Roy might question the use of the word "tragically" in the strip's title.

    Foreshadowing also demands an "Alice In Wonderland" parody at some point.

    I enjoyed V's reluctance to dismiss the possibility the universe hates them. No, V, the universe likes you; it just thinks you're more interesting when you're suffering.

    Maybe it was Vaarsuvius saying "nought point eight" and it mistook it for "gate".

    The title had me thinking Belkar would multi-class to Bard. Sigh... Maybe next time.
