    I tried to make an "If it fits, I sits" joke related to Belkar and reptilian heads, but it's not coming to me. My apologies.

    On the one hand, epicly experienced wizard vs a mere ranger.

    On the other hand: Melee range.

    After the showdown at Girard's gate, the party will rush to Kraagor's gate to find it was in Durkon's home fortress-burrow-thing. They will complete the Prophasy, and Team Evil will come riding over the horizon slaughtering everything that gets in their way.

    Now what will Malack do? He doesn't have anything particular against Belkar and the LG is supposed to be following the OoTS to the Gate, not trying to kill them.

    This is... not going to end well .

    For Belkar, at least. To be fair, Malack might well be the more sympathetic character .

    Well, that's a dramatic setup. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

    Mano-a-mano duel between Belkar and the cleric .. hrm, I think Belkar can take him if he gets a surprise round.

    But of course Belkar will almost certainly try and kill him, even if Malack doesn't attack first.

    ...Right?

    He might not be hostile to the OoTS, but I doubt Belkar is going to give the situation any thought so I predict that Malack will have to kill him in self-defense.

    Frack! I think this is more character development for Belkar! Really, does he need it? Stick me on the side that says 'no'. Though I suppose he is due...

    Personally, I think things may be gearing up for The Death of Belkar. And his possible redemption. Good, though - it means the story is progressing. Eventually we are going to get to comic #1,000, and it's no stretch to assume big things will happen there.

    Yeah, I guess we didn't see this one coming. So the real question is, "does Malack have any non-lethal save-or-dies prepared?"

    "...I worry that modern gaming is gradually shrinking the wide spectrum of gameplay mechanics into a single narrow red bar with "KILL" written on it sideways. Exploration, navigation, puzzles, platforming, all gradually shrinking away until only one thing remains, being taken by the hand from room to room, moving on only when nothing remains alive in each one." - Yhatzee Crosshaw

    All right!

    Is it just me or does Malack look sort of cuddly there? At the very least he seems content to be wandering the empty, trapped pyramid.

    Also... would Malack and Belkar even recognize each other? They haven't had much face-to-face time at all.

    How can he possibly get a surprise round? In the last panel, he's speakingto Mr. Scruffy while Malak is right around the corner. I think that pretty much ruins all chances of surprise, unless Malak has gone deaf since we last saw him.

    If anything, it's Malak who's supposed to get the surprise round. Belkar knows someone's coming, but doesn't know it's a hostile.

    Oo. I like. I think they probably won't fight, due to the fact that Malack's pals have deserted him (Hah, pun) and Belkar probably doesn't recognize him.
