    Awesome comic. The surprise inspection thing always working bugs me. So glad to see it not go so smoothly for once.

    Tarquin is definitely becoming my new favorite villain.

    Help! I'm repeatedly clicking to go to oots latest, but all I see is #765, is this just me? I can reach all of the site except for the new strip!
    Edit: I can see the new page, never mind
    Edit:Now I can't see it again, is this just me?
    All fixed, never mind! It appears that only comic #765 does not recognize the update for some reason, the rest do. And man, Tarquin is annoying and brilliant and pure AWESOME

    Why didn't Haley just say "That book is a decoy, to fool you into thinking there are no surprise inspections, so that when we don have a surprise inspection, you will be more surprised!"?

    Heh, even with the +5 boots, he still rolled a 4.

    And that Guard Rulebook sounds like something you'd read in that big "Evil Overlord List" floating around the internet. I wouldn't be surprised if that's actually what Tarquin used for reference. XD

    I love Tarquin. And a full page of that manual would be pretty cool bonus content for the book.

    That is a spectacular manual. Oh, that Tarquin. Horrible and wonderful, all at the same time.

    The lines about bush-sounds are pretty good, too. Though I'd imagine one who knew could work with them by throwing a rock straight down.

    The flaw in the Sound in the Bushes section is the assumption there are bushes in the first place. What are you doing with convenient hiding places around your prison?

    Yeah Tarquin has definitely been reading from the Evil Overlord's List. Hey, good advice is good advice - even from bad people.

    Now Tarquin doesn't even need to appear in the comic for me to love his character even more

    Great strip, as aways.

    He not only reads and abides by the Evil Overlord List, but distributes copies of it, suitably edited, to his Legions of Terror.
