    I always marvel at how expressive stick figure facial expressions can be...

    Once again V's familiar is the only one with a clue it seems.

    Oooh, I decided to check on the off chance, and sure enough, new comic!


    I LOVE Haley and Elan's conversation. Beautiful facial expressions there, Giant.

    Giant, what a wonderful juxtaposition of expressions and conversation.

    Also, something bad/stupid is about to happen, isn't it?

    Now, that's a bit of a cliffhanger. Did or did not Elan told Haley about Tyrinaria?

    Love it! So many questions.

    What conversation? Will V make the Bluff Check? Why did blackwing fly away on the third to last???

    Tier Envy.

    And Haley and Elan - at the back while D says about hearing things twice. Very good.



    (And dare I even dream at being?)

    Errr, why does Blackwing fly away with Elan and Haley in panel 6, but in 7 and 8 he's still there on V's shoulder?

    I think it only has a quick look at what they're doing - never shows it go further and leave the comic.

    Thanks for putting this one up ^_^.

    That must be some cake. o:

    Also enjoying the fact they're having such simple discussions, even with all three being rather different in personality and alignment. :3

    I pretty much filled in what was being talked about mentally as I watched Haley and Elan. Not in so much words as topics.

    Panel 1: Elan: Aaaah Haley my dad is EVIL D:

    Panel 2: Elan: *starts tripping over his words and trying to explain*
    Haley: Calm down Elan, what happened?

    Panel 3: Elan: *starts explaining the start of the chat with his dad*

    Panel 4: Elan: *mentions what happened to the freed slaves*

    Panel 5: Elan: *mentions what happened to Ian and Tyranaria*

    Panel 6: Haley: We're going to do something about this.

    Gotta love tier envy. The irony is, of course, that neither Durkon nor V play like a tier 1. V is a blaster wizard and Durkon is a healbot cleric, both tier 2-3 easily. Though I guess in a party with an unoptimized bard, a half-optimized rogue, a fairly optimized (but horribly underpowered) fighter, and a ranger "with a wisdom score normally reserved for lemmings", even being a blaster wizard puts you at the top of the food chain.

    A well-timed comic. After Tarquin and Elean's fight and all of the drama that erupted, we need to take a strip just to catch our breath. The nice, homey conversation in the foreground takes care of that -- even while the serious, frantic conversation in the background prevents the storyline from losing too much tension. A simple strip by itself, but it's just the right note we need in the storyline right now.

    Great pacing. Drama last comic, then Haley's reaction . . . all with a silly conversation over the top of it.

    First of all, that's taking a page out of Thor's book!

    Also, I wonder if in panel #5 he should have said 'worst'.

    I like how we get only parts of the three foreground characters' conversation. Including the bits of meta-humor.

    Just a brilliant comic.


    So much good stuff in it. I wonder if those three will just be hanging out while Tarquin fights Haley.

    Oh yeah I'm guessing that Tarquin fighting Haley is the next comic.

    I love Malak. Even if he's "evil" he's a likable guy. Lots of depth and personality... I'm surprised V didn't respond to the whole "special bond" thing with adoption. Though I guess we can assume that's where the conversation led...
