    It was nice to be reminded of those Misspelled bonus comics.

    Also, the former leaders of the other Resistance factions just look cool when they're striking people who aren't each other.

    Very nice "Clerks" reference in the title... And "Dancing Knights"? Well, liked that one as well, but "Dancing Nights" with a "Saturday Night Fever" pun may have been an even funnier option...

    Wow, talk about an over achiever.

    Dancing knights has to be of a spell level notably greater than zero.

    I guess it could just be a silent image, but I like to think that it fabricated the tutus almost instantaneously!

    78% of all dms began their first game in a tavern, if you're part of the 12% that still can't do basic math, copy this into your signature.

    The man who says "I can" and the man who says "I can't" are both right. The Frenzied Berserker solves all problems by cutting them in half. The wise Monk plots his next move, then gets cut in half by said Berserker.

    If a mime falls in the woods and no one is around to see it, does anybody care?

    Love the title, and the last panel is awesome.

    Also, I'm totally making that an official cantrip in my games.

    The tutus were great.

    Also, it was nice to see all of Team Peregrine in action. And two of them acting extremely competent. Still no confirmation whether the archer is, in fact, a Rogue, though.

    Is it just me, or is one of the characters in the first panel missing an outline?

    Any ideas what spell the human in the first panel is using? The different graphic representation from that of the elf's must mean it's not a standard invisibility. Maybe a class ability?
