    I guessed that Tarquin knew about the group. But the Nale twist was cool. Tarquin is really growing on me.

    Well, looks like nale's done breathing now. Gotta love how Tarquin took the time to elucidate just how easily he understood Nale before revealing that he could see him.

    So...Nale's as horrified at being found out as Elan was at having slaves burned in his honor?

    Well, he's got his priorities straight I guess.

    He so wasted his surprise round by gloating and not grabbing him. But he like the theatrics, I guess just grabbing him is too boring?

    You know, I think my love of intelligent, badass villains is unhealthy. Unfortunately, this strip isn't helping. Tarquin is simply awesome.

    Wow, one of my wild theories was somewhat right. I don't know who to be more proud of--Tarquin or myself.

    Wow. I might have guessed Tarquin would run out of demonstrations of his hilariously huge competence by now. Well-played, Giant.

    I can just imagine the wheels that turned in his Nale's head:
    "Heh, so those fools are 'following me' to Girard's? That's convenient. It'll leave dear old dad much less protected. Just have to wait for the ri--"
    "... So he thinks I'm still here. Fine. Should have figured he'd be paranoid; cowards always are, and that's what he is for not grabbing the glor--"
    "... Did he just look at me? No, no, that's silly."
    "Hmph. Well, at least he acknowledges my brilliance. I'm certainly not running off half-co--"
    "I AM NOT AN EGOMANIAC! I mean, just because I was hanging off every word you two were saying about me just now doesn't mean I need to know. In fact, I'm done listening. ... Just as soon as he changes topics from me."
    "... Birthday present? What in all the hells cou--"
    "..."
    "!!!!!!!!!!"

    Weasel though he is, I kinda feel bad for him. He's just in so far over his head.

    Hmm, now it's official. We can trust nothing about what we can assume someone can see. I can only imagine that, just off panel, or perhaps in panel but invisible, there is a complete explanation for what the MitD is, and we will never know that these characters were just looking right at it.
    It stands for 'At the Convenience of the Experimenter'.

    I love the way he heaps on the insults first and then goes after Nale. Well guess who's about to be tortured into telling Tarquin about the gate...

    I don't post much, but I have to say, Tarquin is simply the best villain I have seen in many moons. Rich seems adept at making me actively prefer the bad guy, seeing as how Belkar, Xykon, Redcloak and now Tarquin are just webcomic gold. GOLD I SAY!!! Oh, and the theurge chick, forgot her name, too lazy to check. She is interesting, too. Heck, even Roy's dad, the jerk, is extremely interesting and enjoyable.

    Well, this is interesting. Well, Nale is going to get away, as the only guy who can see him doesn't have a weapon and let Nale get the lead. It only takes a place with more than one door for him to get away.
