    Oh my. Their suits have certainly gotten an art upgrade since the last time we saw them. As has Rodriguez's hair.

    Belkar and Roy in a gladiatorial arena? There's going to be some hardcore bloodshed.

    Heheh... "You'll be done in two weeks, tops!" Obviously they don't know Roy or the sexy shoeless god of war as well as they think.

    I also like the "You'll be done with your sentence in 2 weeks, tops!"
    But, they actually would probably kill everyone else.
    Then they would fight each other, and Belkar would get his prophecy fulfilled!

    And there is the evil part of a lawful evil goverment. 114% conviction rates.

    At least it was a short trial.

    Wow I literally, logged onto GITP at 3:38, I clicked to go to forums, and it updated

    Personally the funniest thing was Belkar counting Roy's response.

    Good to see the lawyers again.

    I wonder if Tarquin will treat Elan & Haley to best seats at the arena, and that's how Roy & Belkar will get out- because they're seen by Elan?

    I foresee Tarquin taking Elan and Haley to see the gladiatorial matches as part of their festivities. I wonder how long it would take Elan to recognize that it's Roy and Belkar down there. Heheh.

    I was a bit worried about having another Trial Sequence, but if anything, at least the EOB's legal system is efficient.

    Also, Belkar is dominating the humor of the recent strips.

    Awesome.

    I lost track, does anyone know what round we're in for the book? It's usually a major scene change...
    I return!

    Currently working on my own game heavily influenced by D&D 3.5 and PF. All of it is OGL material. The finished version will be released on PDF at some point.

    Looking for people to add random fluff to my setting. PM me if you are interested.

    ... evidence that sometimes being inefficient might actually be a good thing.

    Often countries with incarcerate-anyone style systems have mad get outs too, like releasing prisoners on the empress's birthday (after all they can all be re-arrested if you really want them). Intriguing anyway.

    *snerk*

    The jokes and the way EOB's justice system works... I love it!
    1. Have fun. It's only a game.
    2. The GM has the final say. Everyone else is just a guest.
    3. The game is for the players. A proper host entertains one's guests.
    4. Everyone is allowed an opinion. Some games are not as cool as they seem.
