    Oh yes, the anger is quite strong. Also, Nale has been improving his spells, dismension door is quite handy.

    Now that's just awe inspiring awesome. And rather expected from Nale.

    So, who thinks Malack isn't going to be chewing out Elan for what happend, only to shut up when Elan explains that he was "expecting" Nale to survive due to the dramatic effect that he and dear old dad love?

    Dammit, Nale, just die already. While I can appreciate you as a villain, you're still kind of a ****.

    It even beats the line "No, the etymologies are unrelated."

    Not exactly smart, though. But it wasn't a situation that Nale was going to talk his way out of anyway, so he might as well have his fun, I suppose.

    As far as spells go, stick with the basics. Interesting idea to follow up with a quickened inflict moderate wounds. That would definitely put him close to death on a hit.

    Also, double NO!

    That was also awesome.

    I'm split on how Malack will want to do next. Is he going to be pissed at the OotS for not expecting Nale's return? Or is he going to take a little time, energy, and resources to further kit the OotS out to take out Nale in a more permenant fashion?

    This has been rather fast updating lately. I noticed the thread figure the update.

    And it looks like Malack channels negative energy.

    Im actually rather disappointed in that, expecting a major butt-kicking to be administered to Nale & Co, and he ends up getting clean away.

    I concur. Malack going into berserker frenzy was totally hilarious. I think though that Tarquin's long pun-duel with Elan had a better lasting effect, but Nergal's scream of rage has more of a punch.

    This is likely correct



    By the way, does Malack's tail and posture seem a bit off to anyone in the last panel? It looks like he's about to fall over.

    Nice. I really like Malack, especially in this strip. He's more interesting than the entire linear guild.

    Still, it's a shame V wasn't there to counterspell or dimensional anchor.

    It's an action shot, he's mid-lunge and hasn't had a chance to properly re-balance himself yet after.

    Dimension Door is a relatively short distance teleport (few hundred feet). They still have a chance to find him, especially if either malak or Durkon have an intelligent spell selection.

    Awesome! Could it be that the Giant is well enough to return to the Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule? Yay Giant!

    The how's the family line, that must of hurt. Not as much as Malack's choice of spells though.
