    The first few panels? Excellent. Indicative of every cleric ever. AND THEN they do a Tarquin Turnabout? Love it in every possible way.

    Last panel has the paper as transparent. Was that intentional? As if some sort of magic message delivery that somehow disappears upon delivery?

    The paper is transparent in the last one...

    Nice comic, though.

    I've loved Tarquin since we first learned his identity. This just seals my man-crush on him.

    No odds on who they'll end up fighting.
    The Giant says: Yes, I am aware TV Tropes exists as a website. ... No, I have never decided to do something in the comic because it was listed on TV Tropes. I don't use it as a checklist for ideas ... and I have never intentionally referenced it in any way.

    This deal keeps getting worse all the time!


    The comic, on the other hand, is going in the opposite direction.

    Any more Star Wars references combined with the RPG jokes, and this strip will turn into Darths & Droids.

    Love it. Two geeky pastimes for the price of one.

    Oh, well played, Tarquin. That is some impressive evil right there.

    Wait, why does Gannji have his crossbow in the last panel?

    Unsurprised, really. Hopefully our intrepid bounty hunters can get out of this one, though.


    I'm a little surprised that Durkon didn't piss of Malack in the second last panel or something, though.

    More star wars references! Yes! Though now I am worried about just how attached these bounty hunters will become to the overall plotline.

    Hey! Gannji's not Lando! Everyone knows O-Chul is, and Hinjo and Lien are Admiral Akbar and Nien Nunb--respectively!

    But in all seriousness, I feel as though this strip solidifies that Tarquin's not going to be a helpful villain and Gannji & Enor are going to help the Order somehow. Also curious to find out more about Malack's god[s] and adventuring days.

    In this and the one other strip he appeared in, Kilkil is a darker shade of orange than other kobolds--this might imply a red dragon bloodline.

    Heh. I do love Tarquin. Drama demands that he face off against his son later on, but until that point, I will continue to love Tarquin.

    Go Tarquin!(and treevenge!)

    Wouldn't the process of making paper make it revenge from the dwarves.

    Being made paper was the dwarves' revenge. Giving them tiny painful cuts that catch on pants pockets when you try and get your keys is the tree's revenge. Like Montezuma. Sorta of.
