    Hmmm...technical difficulties. The strip doesn't want to post. Please stand by.

    I see nothing. Is it my computer or is everyone sharing my problem?

    Edit: Ah, Giant answered my question as I was typing it. Nevermind. *Slinks away sheepishly.* This does, however, bring into question just what TigerHunter was talking about. Hm...

    Strip must be trying to hold out for a better contact. Don't give in Rich! You change one contract soon the older strips are going to want to get into the action.

    Interesting...apparently there was a problem with the server clock not matching the one on my computer. Up now.

    Everything is working out so perfectly for Nale... it's freaky.
    Can't wait to find out more about the gates.

    I envisage a suitably satisfying demise for Nale that will involve devouring his soul.

    And so the plot thickens. Suprizing how everything is going right for the villan for once. But why would Roy want to know about the gate.

    I love big buildups and complex schemes that result in a simple "well, there you go" sort of conclusion. Like the big slow-motion "caper" scene in Office Space. "Huh. That was easy."

    Addendum: Maybe TigerHunter was simply congradulating the Giant on the quality of his announcement post. *Shrug.*

    I was referring to the new comic being up. I was cursing at my internet connection for not letting me view it until I had the presence of mind to check to see if the problem was on the other end.

    ... and the plot thickens! When will Nale ever learn that things aren't as complicated as he makes them out to be? *snickers*

    Exposition, but well written. And as expected, Nale does not understand the danger.

    I think Roy wanted to know exactly what he was getting himself into defending the gate. That was why he asked for more information about it.

    Ouch, 5 seconds and Nale figures out that Haley is in love with Elan. And how long has it taken Elan so far lol? Wonder if Nale's evil enough to try and seduce her. Or he might tell Elan ...

    You have to love the way Roy manipulates the conversation to lead to the gates.

    Character development and exposition, as I have learned it with things involving a script, is difficult to pull off when done with dialogue. Kudos to rich for delivering more story, but punishment pending for little humor.

    Has Elan every been seen walking with a Geisha? I doubt that would occur normally with Elan, and thus the Geisha would never get the Haley Death Stare.

    I wonder how long it will take for Nale to figure out why Haley has been so quiet. They did have that three-day walk back to Azure City, during which Haley apparently made no attempt to speak and there were no other comments about her problem.

    Because ignorance about that might blow his cover. Or at least, he should consider that possibility.

    Haley has a Gaze attack! Cool
    I gave up fighting, and stabbing and bludgeoning and stealing and bar-brawls and wenches . . . and it was the worst 10 rounds of my life - Jerry the Country & Western Bard.


    WHY ISN'T HE JOLLY???
