    Oh Quar. You gave him the coordinates. Awesome! Also, AUGH THOG EVEN MADDER I'M SCARED!
    awww. Qarr said Z was a guy. There goes my theory on him being V from the future, mind-wiped and sent to the past.

    Where'd that pile of treasure come from? Is that the random loot table rolls for V winning the fight or...?

    Best strip in a long time. I haven't laughed out loud that hard in quite a while. Great job, Giant.

    That's the contents of Haley's bag of holding. You can see it being opened in an earlier strip.

    Its the bag Haley dropped when she was turned to stone. The kobold was looking at it a few strips ago too. Random loot table is a good answer though!

    Wait, did Thog de-rage then Re-rage when he saw Sir Scraggly? It looks like he was turning less green but the dust makes it hard to see.

    That's a one up on the peasant. Though, really it was deserved this time....

    Awesome. Some explanation for Z's bizarre choice of where he sent V, and an awesome moment for Mr. Scruffy!

    I think it was about panel 10 when I first realized "Blackwing's not giving that belt to Roy." Still, I hadn't guessed Mr. Scruffy. That was great.

    Well done BW! Impressive! Even more, that is one strong cat! Even with the boosted stat, Mr. Scruffy is almost on par with Roy (unmodified).

    Technically, it didn't. Someone WAS saved

    So, the IFCC wants V alive no matter what, which means they really are planning to use her body while she's still alive.

    ...and I've just realized that this wasn't the best choice of words...

    That, sir Giant, was pure WIN!! My workmates officially think I'm nuts now. I love it

    So Mr Scruffy now has a Strength score of...what? 22? Oh, wait...no...that's his Charisma.

    I like this side of Thog a lot more, I can take him a little more seriously, even though he's still a moron he's a decisive moron!

    Does this mean that thog's rage is over?

    EDIT: Am I correct in remembering that once a Barbarian's rage ends, he can't re-rage for 5 minutes? Or more?
