    Poor Durkon...all things move at the speed of plot, and looks like he got on the wrong side of it.

    I do like how Durkon consistently only acts according to his alignment. Good comic!

    Yes, they did. It says so in the first panel: Roy thought they could legally Wind Walk into an alleyway, but since he has been arrested for doing exactly that, he apparently could not. He feels that they should have posted signs telling him such was illegal.
    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.

    Durkon was technically breaking the law too, being without papers. If he feels that way, why doesn't he surrender himself?

    This is proof that no matter how much dialogue I devote to explaining something that happened off-panel, there will always be someone who misunderstands. *sigh*

    They did Wind Walk into an alleyway. Roy is bitching because he got arrested for it, indirectly.

    Because he found the legal loophole.

    Why would he be? It's just about SOP for the OOTS by now.

    I keep hoping it doesn't happen, but it does anyway. Oh well.

    Damn you, laws of statistics!

    Actually, I think that's an excellent argument for not worrying too much about explaining things explicitly - no matter how much trouble one takes, someone will always miss it.

    Ooops. Perhaps the Cleric class's mathmatical requirements aren't stringent enough.

    Good comic.

    I take it Durkon's Intelligence is a bit lower than his Wisdom? Or at least his common sense...is that a separate stat from Wisdom now?

    What a hypocrite. Durkon broke the law just as surely as Roy and Belkar. He should turn himself in to the proper authorities.

    Cute comic now Durkon has to walk to the palace. I wonder who the two that were running late for a family reunion are.

    Look at the panel before the sign no check accepted.

    I would totally buy Belkar's guidebook to the jail cells of the world.
    And I love to count the words in every usage of the Sending spell, so this comic make my day!


    It is me or Roy's right arm looks a little too long in panel 6?
    but just as some things can be right and useless at the same time, canĺt something be wrong...and priceless?

    Very Good Comic, as usual.

    It will be nice to see more of Durkon in the upcomiing story arc.

    It's my theory that some people just look at the pictures and make up the dialog for themselves.

    Edit:

    You do realize that was right before the party fought Nale (Elan's brother) to rescue Julia (Roy's sister), right? The family reunion was a year ago in-comic.

    Lawfulness at its best from Durkon.
    Lambasting friends and foes alike = bad karma. Poor Roy, I like him so much. But I like when he's so pissed, too.=P

    Go Durkon! Keep doing mistakes that fit perfectly in the plotline!

    Note that now Rich can give Durkon lots of time with Roy and Mister Obnoxious incarcerated. Sort of a variant of how he used Roys death earlier.

    It be dependin on how the statute be worded.

    "You can't *enter* the city without papers"

    or

    "You can't *be* in the city without papers"

    Either way, Durkin *was* in noncompliance with the law, but per the 2nd wording would now *be* in compliance. Lawfuls do not necessarily have to turn themselves in for inadvertant violations, and it may be that EOB doesn't bother chasing down violators who are now in compliance.
