    Malack's revenge is going to taste far better than tea (especially to Durkon)!

    He makes friends easily...

    Of course! It's a trait to describe Durkon without describing every dwarf ever!

    Well, so much for my half-theory that Malak was actually Durkon's new opposite in the Linear Guild. I guess that means that such a hypothetical individual is still extant, and ready to either come to Nale's rescue, or to take on Roy and Belkar.

    Sadly the tea looks like it has negative hit points and may be a lost cause right now.

    Malak is genuinely Durkon's friend, and not part of some twisted plot? Never saw THAT coming!

    That look of shock on poor Malack's face... And to think some of us doubted him and thought he was in cahoots. Also, Sabine's obvious and outright fear... Something tells me that Malack may be a higher level or more resourceful than originally suspected.

    Plus, a lizard-man carrying a tea-tray. I never thought I could see that in a comic strip and take it 100% seriously, but hey, here we are.

    Oh god.... please oh PLEASE let there be

    a) A industrial sized can of whoop arse cracked open as Malack goes medival on what remains of the LG
    b) Lay to rest all the 'Malak is a vampire' speculations or in any other way other then what he appears to be (a civil and friendly high level lawful neutral Albino Lizardfolk cleric)

    Oh hai, new strip.

    Am I missing something in the double evasion reference? Edit: Oh, I get it. They both have evasion. Silly me.

    Also, woooo go Malack. I think it's time for team cleric again.

    This situation looks amazing. I'm wondering if it will be a smack down, or a talk down.

    Very epic. I would offer my first born for another triple-strip (panel? page?) comic of Malak seriously kicking a dozen asses. Yes, it is OK to kill Nale, ress him and kill him again until he starts losing constitution.

    For once, I actually saw that coming. Still a nice plot development, though.

    well, he is one of Tarquin's acomplices, so it's not entierly unreasonable to assume.

    and if anyone has a reason to fear him, it'd be Nale and sabine, regarding their history and the fact he's in good standing with the death god

    Can I hear an "Oh, HELL YEAH!" up in dis thread of ours? 'fraid our man Malack's about to lay down some death-god justice.

    Seriously, Giant, I do enjoy this comic a lot, but I honestly haven't felt this excited for the next update in quite some time now. Awesome, plainly and simply.

    We'll finally see Malack in action. Silly Nale, not bringing an Anti Durkon to kill the cleric.

    Yes! Somehow in all the excitement I had forgotten about Malack. This is going to be good.
