    I guess the bright side to having hemorrhoids stopping me from falling asleep is that I can see the OotS update right away

    I hope Roy and the others don't get a random unpleasant surprise. On the other hand, ranch dressing takes me back to the olden days. Mmmm.

    How could vaarsuvius alter the taste of ranch dressing though? XD

    So Elan is back to being stupid and childish again? I guess we forgot about that cheap source of character-oriented humor just too fast...

    Great comic again, Giant.

    Great punchline And man, Roy is in for a big surprise thinking they have a tactical advantage this time... And I wonder if the spellcasters will have came back before all Hell breaks loose.

    A change of pace!

    I needed that, after all that excitement back in Azure City. And I agree with Roy: I really want to see the whole OOTS back together as one team, again. Remember, Giant: Never split the party!

    So it actually looks like they're going to get V back sooner than I expected... unless something BIG is about to happen. Either way, I await eagerly .

    Questions, questions...
    They are close? Because V changed a milk lake into sour buttermilk, or what?

    The "seasoned" is clear to me, but... Is "Woodsman" a dressing type, or just another word for tracker/ranger?

    Also, I'm surprised, I checked oots, loocked at a few other pages and then came back to the forum, and first page? What's going on?

    1) Hey! The party just traveled from one place to another without having a random encounter! And this was an opportunity to fight flying enemies. I was looking forward to Hawkmen from the Flash Gordon movie.

    2) Belkar sure is evil, letting his cat drink milk like that. That's animal abuse, for sure. An inspired way to show us just what a rascal he is, well done.

    So presumably Durkon will rescue V and bring the new "Small Size, Two Weapon wielder" back... We know Belkar's days are numbed... are they now in single digits ?

    Yes, a woodsman is someone experienced at survival in the woods, like a ranger. "Seasoned" of course is a pun, being used in the culinary sense, and also meaning "experienced".

    I'm a little concerned here. Whilst I applaud the fact that Roy has learned not to split the party too much due to the tactical disadvantage, it would seem that he has not fully learned the lesson.

    Would not the smarter thing to do be to have the ENTIRE PARTY plane shift, rescue V, then plane shift back to the Windy Canyon?

    I mean, there may be some logic to doing it this way (and I admit, my knowledge on plane shifting is vague at best), but speaking as a player - splitting up, even like this, is just ASKING for trouble.

    I almost forgot about this, so I figured other people might like a refresher as well:

    At the end of the last fight, V was teleported to a plane of ranch dressing by the dark elf.

    I don't see Elan retaining some of his childishness as backsliding on his character development. He had character development before, like confronting Nale in Azure City, and he still turned to Banjo the next morning.

    Typo? Or epic response? I can't tell. Either way, when the days are up, Belkar will DEFINITELY be numb.

    Also, one thing I neglected to say with my last post; I don't get why Belkar is with Durkon, if not in a body guard or tracking capacity....

    Finally, minor art issue with the final panel; Belkars tongue is not coloured in.

    He didn't abandon the stupid and childish personality when he grew, and he's still more grounded and mature than he was when OOTS began. He's still exhibiting character growth; notice how he's engaging with the plot and giving valid concerns. Early-Elan would be dancing around naked and doing other insane things.

    Without having a (yet published) random encounter.
    Though, I guess we will never know the encounters they might have had because it wouldn't fit into the story. Cerebus syndrome, anyone?

    Roy doesn't want Nale to beat them to Girard's Gate. Having to face him with only part of his team is less than optimal, but in Roy's mind it's preferable to Nale reaching the Gate unopposed. Whether or not this is the best plan is up for debate, but it's ultimately moot as we know Tarquin will make Nale wait for the Order to clear a path to the gate.

    Speaking of which, I suspect that any chance Roy has of persuading the Draketooth Clan of the danger Xykon poses will be destroyed when Tarquin arrives and reveals the bugged magic carpet. Of course, I'm judging this on the Patriarch Girard. Maybe Orrin will be more reasonable...

    Ahh yeah...I totally forgot! The kobold Yukyuk is still with Vaarsuvius. Mr. Scruffy will tell Belkar who shot him over the telepathic link, and hilarity will ensue as Belkar gets a new hat. Or maybe this is where Belkar discovers mercy because Mr. Scruffy doesn't want Yukyuk to die?
