    This confirms the theory that they knew it was Elan. I'd take credit, were it not so common. Overall, its a great comic too, doing a lot for Geoff and Ian's personality. Now, for more epileptic trees. Ivy sold Geoff and Ian out, with the aid of a currently unknown second person, on behalf of Bozzok.

    I would really like to see a game made by Obryn, Kurald Galain, and Knaight from these forums.

    I'm not joking one bit. I would buy the hell out of that.

    That was truly awesome. I like Uncle G. The Banjo allusion was great, too.

    I also liked the joke Elan made about needing a prestige class for hostage based situations being you know a weakling.

    Gee, Roy, you told Belkar to lessen the exact same kind of violence you just did. Hypocrisy?

    I am absolutely certain that Roy would not chastise Belkar for using nonlethal violence to save Elan's life.

    Hm. I've not warmed to Ian yet, but the Banjo reference and the last panel were pitch perfect. (Also I don't get the impression we're supposed to especially like Ian yet).
    Belkar's being strangely quiet though. Did he actually go away to give them some space for the minute or so that was taken up in this comic?

    So... That solves the question of whether it was a dagger or not. Elan's cute. Hey, Ian's acting like Nale, Elan's acting like Haley, and Haley's acting like Elan from that scene where Haley got back her voice!

    This had to be an all time winner for Elan quotes

    I can't, he's in my pocket!

    It was consensual every time sir!

    He's refusing to accept that Haley might not be in charge.
    He's refusing to accept that Elan might be part of her team even when she's said so and knows who he is and she brought him there.

    Which is it, your daughter is the master manipulator, or she's a dupe who can't figure Elan out?

    He's in prison because of the quality of his judgement and logic. The quality has not been improved by three years of prison food and mistreatment.
