    In much the same way some people will laugh their butts off at the Big Bang Theory, and others won't understand what the big deal is... humor is rarely universal.

    It's like flavor.

    I don't understand why people like most kinds of seafood. I don't understand why people eat cottage cheese, or most kinds of cheeses in general. I don't like anything cold, wet, and rubbery, other than perhaps jello. I don't like food that you have to heap a bunch of other flavors on top of to find palatable, such as baked potatoes. If it's bland, it's bland. Why do you like a big mass of flavorless starch that you then have to infuse with butter and sour cream and bacon bits? Why not just eat flavorful food instead?

    Other people think I'm bleepin' crazy for not liking things like cheese or lobster. Well, I don't get the same mouth sensation others get, and to me, it tastes like the bottom of someone's foot. And no, I'm not into that.

    Different sensations appeal to different folks, and most definitely are unappealing to others.

    So we've established several things:

    Spoiler
    Show
    1) Crystal can knock Elan unconscious with a single punch, at present.'

    2) Crystal is immune to things which affect the undead because she is not undead. She's a flesh golem, which has different rules.

    3) Crystal has spell resistance strong enough to deflect presumably the strongest spells that Haley can cast with her wands, because I'm pretty sure she would use her best wand first (or, at least, second) in a desperate situation.

    4) Crystal is basically immune to Haley's normal arrows, and Haley missed with her more potent arrows.

    5) Haley will stand absolutely no chance against Crystal in a straight up melee, even with Bandana helping.

    6) Crystal so far outclasses Bandana that for all intents and purposes, Bandana isn't even there

    7) Due to the imminent threat Crystal poses to the dwarven civilians all around, and Haley being good, Haley cannot simply escape from the battle. She can only attempt to evade.



    The situation is therefore untenable for Haley. There are only a few outcomes remaining:

    A) Haley is slain by Crystal

    B) The order of the stick comes to her aid

    C) Something similar to B happens, but not exactly B

    Since the author has effectively cut off every means for Haley to win this encounter without assistance, and has removed escape as an option, I believe the author is justifying Haley's upcoming death to the audience, explaining why Haley won the previous battle, but will lose this one.

    As such, I am feeling much better about my bet, and much worse for Haley.

    I would drop a wager that Haley will live again, and would give long odds for Rich killing Haley off for good, but it's looking more and more... deathly.


    Blah blah blah stuff.

    Edit: Rather than bump the thread yet again, let me just say this:

    Zap.

    Well, it looks like a death might be imminent; I'm going to guess it'll be Grubwiggler!

    Heh, didn't even need a philter of glibness this time.

    I won't ever be happier to be wrong, and it looks like I'm wrong!

    Barring some sort of command ability / magic word / spell, Crystal's rage seems to have been redirected.

    But, it was really not wise of Haley to follow Crystal back.... should have gathered the Order of the Stick, and bandana, and left... This is unnecessary.... and if it goes pear-shaped.... there are no more tricks Haley can use, folks.

    Only 6 appearances, but pretty significant, so sure, I see no reason to disallow that. (I wish I could change my own bet to Grubwiggler...)

    And, ZidIles gets it in just in time! Nice going! The only one, too. I'll update the first post momentarily.

    For everyone else, bets may be changed again now!

    I'm putting my money into Haley now. It's either that she survives due to convincing Crystal or she dies. Chances of Bandana dying herself are looking pretty slim.

    Get out of there Haley, you've won, babe, just get the hell out of there......

    Oh. I understand.

    She can't just leave. Because she has to deal with Crystal, she has to help protect the dwarf villagers.

    ....

    Things are looking better, but the underlying dynamics haven't changed a whole lot.

    Reinforcements, something..... Crystal still unstoppable if she wants to kill Haley.


    I'll leave my bet on Haley for now.

    Hey, I got it right! I'm a 2-pointer now! :D (Unless anyone wants to claim that shouldn't count as a death.) Too bad so few people here to gloat to now. :)

    Anyway, bets may now be changed once again.

    Yes, I only list ones that people have currently bet on. If someone bets on someone new, I add them.

    OK, since nobody bet on Gontor and he's only appeared in 2 comics, his death doesn't count -- you still can't change bets yet if you've made a bet after Crystal's death.

    I'm putting my money on Wrecan, but since he's only in 7 strips so far (counting a double long strip as two) I might be disqualified if he lasts less time than I expect.

    I'd say Wrecan "has some significance", I'll allow it. :)

    Edit: Come to think of it, I'll bet on Wrecan as well.

    Since Wrecan is a tribute character, I'm pretty sure he'll make it out alive. The Giant can't be that cruel (...right?). Likewise, I think (read:hope) Belkar will live to the end of this book at least. One bet on Durkula, if you please.

    That's right - George R. R. Martin; a writer so ruthless, his name is a verb akin to Samuel L. Jackson. Valar morghulis.

    I thought about that. But personally, I think it would be a great tribute to have a character named after me die nobly, better than getting some snarky lines in and then departing to an unknown fate.
