    Meh, Roy has been dead already. That kind of takes the sting out of it the second time. Although some people once dead tend to die over and over again due to the strangest of circumstances.

    I guesstimate the champion to be Thog's daddy. Or mommy. That would make it even more hilarious.

    Well, I'd kinda expect the Champion to be one of the things they focus on with the posters, yeah.

    All I have to say is I feel sorry for Roy. Hopefully Belkar doesn't jump in the arena to save Roy.

    "Not wanting Roy to know" is back here:

    but "save their lives" was a bit uncertain, till this strip.

    Fascinating.

    Why, looking at the champ, do I get a "Blaster" vibe as in the character from Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome ?

    The character wore a mask to conceal the fact that he had the mind of a child?

    Seeing as the guards refer to the Champion as a "he" I'd wager that two of the random guesses above me are wrong.
    R.I.P. Wrecan, he was a true organizer and a gentleman.

    The champion is a suit of +10 armor built around the gate! The Snarl has already broken partially free, and is using the armor as a hand-puppet!

    Default Wait ... Elan assigned his Int stat?

    I refer to panel 1 of 786 .

    This raises a number of interesting questions which I suppose only Rich Burlew can answer.

    1) Elan was born the same way other babies were born in OOTS, right? So how did he have the choice to assign his dump stat? I thought he was dumb because Nale smacked him in the soft skull as an infant.

    2) Is there a distinct difference between PCs and NPCs in this world?

    3) If so, how do the characters in the story know which is which?

    Only Rich can answer, but the rest of us can of course speculate. How DOES this work?

    Respectfully,

    Brian P.

    Could just be a one-off joke by Belkar. Of course, being a PC, perhaps Elan did have a choice in where his dump stat goes. This could be a metagame comment, too.
