    Thx Giant!

    So Sabine has her own plans, and not-Elan is asking out Haley. Will she NOW get it?

    Looks like some of those predicting Haley will giure it out during some not-Elan seduction may have been right after all since Sabine decided to absent herself from the situation for a day.

    Anyone else have the feeling this is how someone in the party is going to find out it's Nale? After all, Haley will probably realize that Elan would never realize her feelings.

    Though I agree, Haley's probably going to figure it out.

    Thanks Rich and have fun celebrating(same to the rest of the board).

    To quote Haley, I also never thought this strip would have that much plot when I started reading :) Do I smell a little betrayal coming up to the once-bearded-man-who-likes-to-scheme ? (Schadenfreude rules)

    Sabines planar door liked quite cool, I think. Though I guess getting romantic suddenly is exactly what Nale shouldn't do to be believeable, the last panel made me strongly renew my wish: I really, really want to see Roy so beating the living hell out of Nale

    I'm not so sure about Nale. Now, Haley's problem could approach its solution indeed. And a question to the rule advocats - planeshift once a day, does that supply a critital hint on Sabine's nature? Or is ist still ambiguous?

    Awesome. Finally an answer to why she is on earth with Nale. Though we still don't know if it was coincidence that brought them together or that she alligned with Nale when she discovered he was after that talisman. Whatever the case is. She now has some crazy stuff to report.

    Edit: I wonder. If the gods together created earth to keep the snarl from getting away. How will those people in hell react. Do they allready know it. And more importantly, do they want to set the snarl free (evil comes forth out of the snarl) or perhaps the snarl is just chaotic neutral and the demons want to harvast its powers without releasing it. Thereby starting an age where lawfull evil is winning.

    Oh dear. As much as I had been hoping that this would happen, so that Haley could get her speech back in mistaking Nale for Elan, now that it's here, all I can think is "NOOOOOO!" And I would say that Sabine made a good Bluff roll, but as we all know, feminine bluffs aimed at guys have a +10 bonus.

    Comic was okay. The few jokes (The fate of the world hinges on our actions? What else is new? XD) are well balanced out by the good plot movement, and hopefully the next one will be the laugh riot we've come to expect.

    pretty surprising that those lower plane buggers have not discovered the snarl before now, or maybe its just the portals that are a surprise?

    I get the feeling that the lower plane folks would consider this an important situation to keep track of so they'll portal Sabine back themselves ASAP, causing some akward situations.

    I stand by my claim that Nale is the most EEEEVIL baddie ever. Not even Xykon would try to score with his own brothers girlfriend. And just because his regular partner is away for one day. Thats a 9.8 on the evil scale!

    VERY interesting comic, raises a ot of questions. Biggest one is possibly how hell at large will react to the Snarl news. It's possible the high-ups there know about it, but the question is, would they want it released? For all we know, the Snarl is so chaotic that it would destroy hell as well, after all it destroyed some of the gods, and arnt the high-ups of hell just opposite sides of that same coin? Maybe they'll order Sabine to make sure that the Snarl is not released....that would mean....the Linear guild and the OOTS working together? Yeesh. Or maybe they'll want Nale to get the power of the gates on his side, and become their pawn on earth. And of course, on the other side, there's Nale and Haley....this could go any way. Suave as he is, could Nale really pull off Elan attempting to seduce Haley? And if not, when will Haley realise? I'm guessing that she'll either discover it, probably through the not-knowing-about-cryptograms thing, and rat him out.....or...she'll realise after a nice dinner etc when they are in the city alone...and Nale will realise she'll have to be silenced. He did plan on getting rid of them one by one...suspenseful!

    Nale hitting on his brother's girlfriend? That's really low. Where I come from, you don't get a cease-and-desist demand for that violation, it goes straight to fighting.
