    What did Ian just do???

    Great to see Haley back though, I've somehow managed to miss her on a short space of time. At least she's nnot pulling a Durkon.

    But that knowledge withholdal is cruel, and you know it. Totally worth it.

    ELAN!!! Way to slow us down, while still being entirely in character...

    Also, the whole Ian conspiracy is looking pretty believable now...

    I was just about to go to bed when I see "OOTS #815" next to the OOTS forum. Glad I refreshed the page! Everything is starting to get back together for once! Now all they need is to retrieve V.

    Heh, me too. Pity it's a school night, or for once I'd actually stay up and be able to follow the entire thread for once.

    I think I just lost geek cred for not knowing that already, thanks for telling me!


    (for a few seconds I thought that Durkon was also on the brontosaurous. Then I figured it out)

    Haha! yet another climatic cliffhanger! Elan aspires to be an epic bard, I bet. :)
    Those off-panel-updates speed up many things, while I hope to get some bonus-paper-strips sometime. I miss Malak already.
    Great work, Giant, I can't wait for the next strip.
    - btw, I have to sit today and tomorrow in awful boring schooling sessions, a fast next update would be *very* greatly appreciated

    Loved it, can't wait. And I'm very curious if Tarquin really helps them without making trouble...

    Your welcome! It is fairly late on a school night so your cred is in tack, at least in my view. It took me a second to figure it out what it meant too.

    So peg-leg guy wants them to meet up with some associates. Has this 'Ivy' been mentioned before? Probably not by name.

    Yeah, I randomly got up to post on another thread, so I'm glad I still qualify.

    So, who thinks that the next strip will be exposition?

    Ivy is Ian's sister and the peg leg guy's wife.

    No comment on Haley saying "gasp" and referring to Roy as "the gladiator I have never met before"? I thought that was amusing considering she criticized Elan for the same thing.

    Anyone else hoping for more crayons?

    There's a possibility that Nale and/or Sabine are right there listening invisibly. Plus a good chance the archfiends are watching on a HDTV, so whatever Tarquin knows might make its way over to the Linear Guild.

    Aunt Ivy, Geoff's wife. Geoff is peg-leg guy, who is the brother in law of Ian, Haley's dad.

    Ivy is Geoff's (peg-leg guy) wife and Ian's sister. She's been mentioned a few times but I don't have the patience to link them all.

    ...

    Okay, okay. Just so everyone knows: I absolutely love OotS and Rich is an amazing writer and comedian.

    But dang, after reading this comic, I wanted to call Rich all sorts of mean and inappropriate names that would get me banned. Seriously cruel.

    If the next comic doesn't come out within 5 minutes, I'm afraid I might just explode from anticipation.
    Thank you Ceika for the wonderful Avatar avatar!

    Cue Rich taking a 3 week break before the next update. Just to be extra cruel.

    Thanks guys.

    I'm going to assume that's the main reference on these relations.

    I second the next comic being exposition. I'm perfectly fine with that too. Explaining all thats going on would be awesome.

    I was originally going to comment on Haley's Natural 1 on her bluff (which she's so good at that she still beats Tarquin's Sense Motive which is saying ALOT) but I got distracted by Batman.

    No-one seems too worried about V... serves hir right I suppose.

    I loved how Roy was honestly surprised at the disappearance but Belks is taking it a level further with "what men?"
