    Yay! Bar fight (or brunchroom anyway)! What Belkar does best.

    So this is why he didn't get involved earlier.

    Interesting fatalism on Roy's part. I wonder if some of Elan's genre-savvy is rubbing off him...

    Since no one has mentioned it yet....I LOVE the fact that Roy, Mr. Calm cool and collected, decided to escalate this to a full fledged fight.

    Could it be that he sees this as a chance to finally work off his anger issues after his whole post-dead-hallucinations experience?

    Now, THIS is a BAR FIGHT!

    (indeed, lot of dangerous people in it, eh? Could the barman be an ex-adventurer with a heavy mace +5 to sedate the brawls? )

    A bit of a cliche, as lampshaded by Roy himself. That is probably why he did not bother avoiding it.

    Combat-wise, that may be. But I like his no-nonsense attitude, despite past failings while dealing with Miko and Belkar.

    But if you mean his half-dragon judo throw, remember that he is wearing a belt of strength.

    Mr. Scruffy totally did that on purpose. And now he's probably the only one in the room who the soulknife doesn't want to thrash.

    Well, he has a plus six to his strength and probably an extra plus 3 from levels. Assuming he started with sixteen that's a 25 which means he can lift 800 pounds over his head without even trying.

    At least I think it's a plus six. It could be a plus four in which case it's 600.

    There could also be other modifiers I'm unaware of.

    I like it that the Gannji is using the butt end of his fork/halberd thing, he knows it's just a brawl, not a fight to the death.

    I wonder if its at all likely that the EoB will care who started the brawl?

    It's possible that the combatants will all end up in jail- and Elan may have to persuade his dad to set Roy & Belkar free.

    We can also say that a non-SRD class (the warlock) has appeared in the strip and actually played a part- without lampshading about it being non-core- (but some people will argue that it still counts as a "one panel joke")
