    Yay, new comic! What are the chances of that? Oh right, like 100%.

    Edit: Also, pet orangutan. Elan's dad is awesome.

    That depends entirely on whether it would advance the plot or allow for some good jokes.

    Why did the general say "Good job" to the guard?

    @V: Hmm. I hadn't thought about it that way. I guess it doesn't make sense that he would be overly nice to his guards, but with his personality...maybe?

    Er, he said good job to Elan because of the way he interpreted pet orangutan. At least I thought that was what happened.

    Don't be so dramatic, they're most likely totally non-magic spikes and don't do more than 1d6 damage.

    Yeah, "Good job, son" is Tarquin talking to himself, about Elan. As in, "Good job, Elan, for running off to have sex with your hot redheaded girlfriend, which has just been reported to me by this guard."
    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.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute!

    Haley gave that guy 500GP!?!

    I know that at a high enough level player-characters don't even blink at sums of money that a person could live comfortably off of for years, but still this is Haley we're talking about!

    So either she's under a mind-compulsion of some sort, or while pretending to give him 500GP, she actually picked his pocket and left him with nothing.

    I can't think of any other reasonable explanation...

    (Edit)

    also awesome: We need to break Roy out of there! And then decide what to do about Belkar!

    Alright, maybe Haley is still herself, and not being mind-controlled...

    It's either that or potentially piss off Tarquin. Haley's greedy, but she's not stupid.

    Wouldn't it be easier for Elan to try to reason with Tarquin? It might mean that the General would have to admit an error, but I'm sure he'd be reasonable enough to accept it.
    Let's see if someone misses my sarcasm.

    Interesting that Haley seems quite willing to continue with the escape even though they don't technically need to...

    Bathing the Orangutan is the name of my Discworld tribute band.
    We have one song.

    I'm going to be sad when Elan and Tarquin eventually have to fight.

    Great comic!

    My personal favorite was Haley deciding "what to do about Belkar." Hehe.

    It probably has, the guard could easyly check after the Hold Person went off and I don't think he would lie to Tarquin if it was less than she said.

    On another note, this is very similar to the example on Rich's diplomacy fix, so I think it really has 500gp in the bag.

    Anybody else catch that Haley wants to get Roy out of prison, and then decide what to do about Belkar?

    But on the off-chance it does actually have all that gold, that's like 50 years pay for a guard.

    She's not just giving it away, she's buying something for her money. Of all people, Haley should know how bribes work.

    Technically, part of the reason Haley's so stingy with money is because of her dad. With that no longer being a pressing issue, she's just got her natural greediness in the way, which is probably smaller than her instinct for self-preservation.

    She didn't give him the money, she bribed him with it. A bribe is like a purchase--money exchanged for services rendered--and Haley is not so obsessed with gold that she refuses to make purchases with her money.

    Plus, she now has enough to free her father, so it's less urgent that she hold on to every last gold piece.
