    So... Elan doesn't know that Nale is not dead? And he willingly would be a slaver? *gets ready for "is Elan evil" threads*

    Also, Giant, I think you forgot to put </i> somewhere in the news. It's all in italics.

    Oh...I thought he was referring to the Dungeon of Dorukon, and it was a "successful" bluff check that ended up shooting himself in the foot.

    Never thought of the fact that the Order should think that the Linear Guild is dead.

    Ummm, Elan said that he is against slavery in this strip. By "up your business" he didn't mean he would want to do business but rather that he would be interfering with her business.

    Well they met them in Cliffport after the dungeon - so I'd expect them to assume the linear guild is alive.

    And Elan should learn some smooth talk if he's going to survive.

    Il'deav is probably from somewhere where getting "all up in someone's business/grill" isn't a common expression.

    And Elan, you really should learn when to shut your mouth...

    To be "all up in someone's business" means to interfere with their business, not to participate in it. So Elan is saying he would have to thwart her slavery plans if given the opportunity.
    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.

    No, he wouldn't. "All up in your business" is a phrase used to indicate hostility.

    Edit: Don't think I can even really claim "ninja'd" with my slow typing there.

    Elan's talking about when the Azure City Castle went all kablooey due to Gate smashiness... with Nale and co. (as far as he knows) still in a cell.

    First off, Elan is even more of an idiot than I thought possible.
    I don't know how he could get more careless.
    Really, Elan? Get yourself eaten?
    So ok, he's an idiot, but Haley too?
    They need to work on Elan not talking.

    Poor V doesn't get to say anything,
    And neither does Blackwing.
    Give them a chance at least.
    Elan should know better.

    This feels out of character for Elan to me. Perhaps he's just being further Flanderized as stumbling conflict bait, but he seems the sort to assume someone is alive just because he didn't personally see him torn to pieces. That's a very drama-appropriate assumption across a wide range of genres, especially with a personal nemesis!

    If only somebody there had, oh, I don't know, some sort of powerful scrying spell they could use to check up on Nale.

    Yes, he was well gone by the time the Cloister kicked in.

    I think the empress would prefer to get all up in somebody's grill. That way she can get hamburgers. Or steak.

    Poor, simple Elan. He tries so hard, does so well, and then falls at the final hurdle.

    I guess whoever mentioned Hayley's ropes looking loose in the last comic deserves a cookie.

    Red dragons are immune to fire damage. She can basically press you against the grill with her claws and she'll feel all fine.

    Do you have any idea how long it would take to roast something that big?

    ... Though that now raises the question of how she would fit...
