    ^like. This comic further reinforces V's alignment as TN... completely indifferent, though he is incredibly loyal to Roy... who is about the only person he respects.

    It was about time, too. I can't believe it took 10+ comic strips for xe to work it out. How ironic.

    V finally has learned that part of learning to fight is when NOT to fight. That lesson from Uncle Xykon, I guess.

    Yay for Intelligence... I take out your opposite, you take out mine... Why keep on throwing scissors at scissors when there's lovely soft paper down there?

    I want to see how the damn drow fares with an angry cat thrown in his face

    hmm roy's armor was in that bag which likely means so was his (and belkar's) other gear, which could tip the scales of roys battle (and eventually whatever one belkar gets in)

    This actually seems more like a Wisdom thing than Intelligence, or perhaps both, as common sense (which V is... Lacking) would dictate this same course of action. It is still, however, a smart move.

    Also, I am very pleased by this turn of events. Z's angry expression in the last panel s/he (hereafter using "he" and such in the gender-neutral sense) appears in is great, as is the line, "Burn, you insufferably terse dullard!" Especially the expression, though, because he's realizing that V is, more or less, ignoring him, and that he can't really do much about it.

    Also, Yuk-yuk's looking to be in for some pain. Which is good. Wonder who's going to take out Z, though. Betting on Durkon here, although Belkar's a possibility. Maybe. This could go... Several ways.

    Edit: Also, V's confusion over Blackwing's, "Thanks for asking"; it seems more like him just being his usual self rather than slipping back into the "ignoring the familiar" stuff, but it's amusing.

    Heh. I suppose Z thinks that V is "too wordy", too.

    Showing some damage there, V. Maybe steal one of Haley's potions, she will eventually forgive you if you give her more than market price for them plus interest.

    Let's see if V can be really intelligent and finish this off quickly:
    Disintegrate
    [Kobold turns to ash]
    Disintegrate
    [Wolf turns to ash]
    Grabs magic items for Roy and Belkar "here you are chums... you guys fight Z, while I kill Thog in one shot"
    End Fight. Finally.

    I really thought V was gonna go into hand to hand combat strangling the drow with his/her bare hands. ^^

    THAT would be badass (and Mr. Drow surely would not expect that).

    Wait... we donīt know how many Vīs daily spells there are left after his battle against Z. V always uses invisibility when itīs the only left (like in Azure City battles 1# and 2#), and there is nothing more useless in battle than a wizard without magic.

    Great comic, Giant.

    Who would be best suited to fight Zz'Ditri in V's place?
