    I have a question about this comic.

    Does it involve soul-selling?

    Ahahah I love it! And Blackwing confirms his place as one of my current favourite characters.
    I never would have thought they were after the Linear Guild. So much for my theories.

    Ha, awesome! I didn't guess that they were after Nale. Haley might want to think twice before attacking with her knife though.

    Would Haley inflict enough sneak attack damage with the "dagger" to incapacitate Gannji in one round?

    I take this comic as confirmation that the lizardfolk WAS shooting at Elan, not Vaarsuvius, and Haley knocked him out of the way. Hence the Strength poison: he's listed as "skilled with sword and magic." Enough Strength poison will preclude both.

    We know Nale's father lives on the Western Continent, perhaps the Empress of Blood wants to use him as blackmail? Either way, cool comic.

    Interesting. I can see Nale being wanted in the area, considering that his father was one of the warlords. Now, to engage in a bit of rampant speculation -- it says Nale is wanted for "murder" and "treason" -- is that killing his father? And is this Empress of Blood his stepmother or something?

    If she turns out to be, I'm calling dibs on being the first to mention the theory!

    Why was their elven wizard companion listed as 'unknown subtype'? It was pretty obvious that he was a Drow.

    Aside from this minor nitpick, I like this comic. Blackwing is awesome.

    We know no such thing.

    We only know that the guy holding Haley's father is on the Western Continent.

    It's a popular fan theory that the guy holding Haley's father is Nale's dad but it has not been proven yet.

    Any number of reasons, including that the authorities didn't ever get a good look at him/her and is relying on second-hand testimony.

    Huh, wow ... I liked the theories that the reason they were being attacked was mistaking Elan with Nale, but I thought they were pretty unlikely. So this makes me happy.

    Cummon, V, do something awesome!

    How the heck did the Empress of Blood not know Zz'dtri's subtype? I guess maybe (s)he always used Disguise Self in public? On a related note, the bounty hunters undoubtedly think Haley is Sabine.

    Nice to know Elan's height. Now I'm curious about Roy's.

    This has the feel of moving the plot into another Linear Guild-based arc, even if the actual remaining Linear Guild characters don't make an appearance at all (I'm thinking
    Spoiler
    Show
    they're headed to Kraagor's Gate and will bump into O-chul and Lien.)
    Since the last two Linear Guild sub-arcs are some of my favorite in the comic's whole run, I'm excited. I was kind of disappointed when the Order went quickly into the desert with the Haley's Dad subplot being "postponed."

    Or Nale was a jackass again.

    It wouldn't surprise me at all if he was hired for an assassination, carried it out, and then accidently spilled tea on the empress' rug or something.

    Also: how come this thread has almost a page's worth of replies but my CP shows it has 0 views?

    in which case he could easily be mistaken for a different kind of elf, So Unknown fits.

    First Page Post! Finally!

    And yes! I always considered Nale-Elan a possibility... wasn't so sure about the other OOTS member parts... but heh, at least that far was right.

    Still, whoever made that poster needs to do a better job at description.

    Also updating... what was up with the mentionings of Zz'dtri and Yikyik?
