    Panel 7 - "Master Thudershield" is missing an 'N'.

    Still great...

    Also, does anyone have an explanaiton for why the Elven ambassador was glaring at Vaarsuvius?
    Edit: I meant Vaarsuvius, have no idea why I typed 'Elan'

    He/she was glaring at Vaarsuvius too, judging by Blackwing's comment.

    Floop. Turns out it really was just a bad haircut; that new outfit doesn't look so bad with the old hair.

    Why was the Elf glaring at V?

    Good strip, though it's almost as if this is a fantasy world where the rules of physics don't apply

    Nothing for sure, but I would guess it has something to do with the black dragon incident. That did take place in elven lands, and the ambassador would be in a position to know when and why an angry ancient dragon attacked their country.
    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.

    Is that V's mate? Is s/he an ambassador? Or is it just the hair color confusing me here?

    Face it, Haley. That one hair is always going to be out of place.

    V's comment in the final panel was outstanding.

    As for why the Ambassador was glaring at V, my guess would be that he reads the newspaper (or the magical version of it) and saw the divorce proceedings. He also may have sensed V's alignment shift. Just because you put the "white hat" back on does not mean that the effects of your actions go away.

    Sounds like news travels quickly in the elven world. As always, curious as to where these clues will go.

    Thanks for a great strip!

    Poor laws of physics. They've never really fitted in the fantasy universe.

    Nope, that's his hand. If you look (not too) closely, you can see his sleve above it.

    Seconded! *giggles some more*

    Actually I don't find it too hard to imagine the Empress flying; floating like a helium balloon!

    Hmm...curious about the elven ambassador...

    No, V's mate is a BAKER, and that character doesn't look much like her anyway despite having the same hair colour.

    Is it just me, or has the Empress got even fatter? Or is that just an illusion because she's not sat on her throne at the moment?

    Maybe it's possible that the Empress of Blood is just full of hot air. A lot of hot air.

    That's what I was wondering. I don't know the comic titles well enough to go back with any sort of quickness and look, though.

    As for hir not looking like the previous mate, well, that would be the real problem.

    Nothing in the rules (that I'm aware of, at least) suggests that extreme weight affects your move speed, flying or otherwise.

    But, yeah. If she wasn't the Empress, she'd be arrested for breaking the laws of physics.
