    I'm so lost in this new forum! Where are all the posts?

    Another funny one, Giant. Nale might be a bit slow on the uptake, but he catches on quickly.

    That was pretty good even though nothing really stood out. I hope they don't have a teleport wreck because the wizard is drunk!

    A bit heavy on the dialog which didn't really move the story along much.

    I wonder how this will affect what Nale planned, he seems a little disapointed that he is just a sidequest.

    I was going through withdrawls not being able to talk about all the crazy stuff going on in the last week. Glade to see the forums back up.

    I don't know about OOTS but I would have been a little apprehensive about letting a drunk wizard fling me through space like that.

    Poor NPC. I'm guessing Nale is all "what did you just say?" because now he'll want to use the villainous apocolypse-causing gadget instead of killing them all. (right away, anyway.) Poor Sabine.

    It was amusing, but after a long weekend, I was kinda expecting more. And does no one notice the sudden articulation and logic of "Elan?"

    I think Nale better get it together and start using the group's correct names or else his little deception will be very short lived. First Belkon and now RAY!!??
    You'd think an evil "mastermind" would at least get the names right. Plus, it has to be a blow to the e(vil)go to find out you are nothing more than a sidequest.
    I must also say that I was a little surprised to see Belkar giving props to Durkon. Glad he took care of that the next panel, "Of course. I give you respect for a nanosecond and what do I get for my trouble? A dwarf pun. Moron." Classic :D

    He didn't say Ray. He said Roy.

    I don't think Nale is doing a double take because he was a sidequest, I think it was because he didn't realize the OotS was on a mission to save the world!

    Oooo! Nale just got a reason not to kill everyone! We all know how he feels about sources of ultimate power, right? I just loved the look on his face, that was totally not what he expected the OotS to be up to, though it's his fault for not considering that a two-digit level party will be on a main quest of some sort.

    Yeah, he kinda has a vested interest in the world existing. That was the way I interpreted the comic, anyway.

    Oh... my... GOD!!!!

    This is gonna be a HUGE plot twist. Nale's plans will be thrown off. I think, he will either try to get the doom's day device for himself, or he will lay off and maybe even help the party because he doesn't want the world to end. Those predictions are probably a bit off, but its a start! ;D

    Yeah, it'd be pretty funny if he ended up dying in the course of saving the world, and the whole thing ends happily for Elan because he wasn't there and thus didn't die. Though I suspect Haley, at least, will live as well, and probably Roy, though he could die a hero's death.

    So when mr. NPC wizard said he didn't need to be a wizard, was anyone else expecting his next line to be something about how he could have been a lumberjack? :D

    I doubt that nale wants to grab the doomsday stuff for himself - he has pretty half-fiendish hottie waiting for him when all is over, he has more than enough reason to want to make sure that OoTS survives and stops the end of the world.

    Well, this is an interesting twist, to be certain. I can't see Nale being motivated (or intelligent) enough to try to harness the "doomsday device/gate/snarl", but similarly, I don't think he'll pitch in to help the OoTS. He seems unidimensionally evil. My guess? He'll hold off on killing them until he figures out what's going on, by which time someone (probably Haley) will have figured out that he's not Elan. As to why no one's tripped to it yet, given his precise articulation in this strip? I can only surmise that they just spend a lot of their time ignoring Elan, so it makes sense that they wouldn't notice anything straight off.

    And the drunken wizard? I'm with anyone who's guessing that they're going to wind up anywhere but Azure City.

    Oh, btw, I'm new, 'though I've been lurking awhile.

    I definitely think that Nale would be interested in using the power of the gates for his own means.

    And is V going to disclose to Roy what Elan was up to?
