    Someone failed her sense motive check....again.

    Also, I loved the first panel.

    Well Nate recovered nicely with the language thing. Still will he be able to stay quiet for the rest of the night?!

    And really how can anyone believe Nate is Elan with those opening lines. Elan likely doesn't know what most of those words mean. :p

    Thanks Giant! Keep them coming!

    Why isn't her self-loathing pitching in?
    Lack of protective gear seems rather obvious.

    Now for the greatest question of all. Is good enough at seduction to get without words?

    Can't wait to find out.

    "It's so nice to see you not wearing any of your normal protective gear"

    I have a really bad feeling about this...

    I hope Haley has a good Dex bonus to her AC, though it won't matter if she's caught flat-footed.
    All hail the mighty Banjulhu!

    She's a rogue, of course she has good dexterity.

    I can't believe she's still falling for it.

    Now to wait until someone smarter than I decodes her speech...

    The suspense builds, as does my heart rate.

    That was an interesting conclusion that Nale jumped to about her speech. Does he really think Elan is capable of learning another language?

    I know. I had to figure it out before I posted. I'm not going to tell you, though. It made me wonder how Haley can't be more suspicious of "Elan," even if she is desperate.

    Uh, yeah she can. She just doesn't lose her Dexterity bonus when she IS caught flat-footed. She can also be sneak attacked just fine, as long as the sneak attack results from being flat-footed (because she was surprised or rolled lower than Nale in initiative) and not being flanked (because she probably also has Improved Uncanny Dodge, which prevents being flanked).

    I liked the last panel; same thoughts, completely different meaning.
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    Well, bards get oodles of skill points, and Speak Language is a class skill for them.

    Also, to all you nay-sayers who thought Haley's Vanity was scruffy-looking; check how Haley does her hair when she wants to dress up!

    For some reason Haley's dress looked really weird to me. It's bugging me for some reason.

    I loved the same thoughts with different expressions.

    Well, Haley seems to be really committed to not letting thinking get in the way of this, because really Nale's little slip there really should have tipped her off.

    I can't believe she agreed to wear the dress. And hair down too. But if she's still taking chances, she probably has something planned for 'just in case.' Or maybe she'll just charm Nale until he can't attack her [not saying it]. Both the suspicion and the suspense mounts. Now I have to get a pencil and paper and decode Haley's speech though.

    Man, Haley looks SO WEIRD in that dress. Guess I'm just to used to the brown armor:D

    Good comic Giant.

    Not to nitpick or anything, but that dress looks a little weird on her. I know the giant was trying to convey a dress that sorta hangs off the neck without straps or something sexy like what Celia had on during her date with Roy, but it's just not workin' for me here. Frankly, I'd almost be inclined to say that Haley looks... dumpy.

    I'm so gonna get killed for that.

    Really good comic today though. I can't wait to find out what Haley said, and whether it actually works with Nale's response.

    Jee, kinda blunt on the lack of protective gear, and looks like love does provide a -20 to sesne motive, even though it can provide a +2 bonus on some other skill checks

    People who keep complaining about how obvious it is that Nale isn't Elan just need to take a deep breath and remind themselves that this is a comic strip and it's funnier that way.

    Nale having to tapdance his way around stuff he doesn't know: Funny.

    Nale being immediately found out and carted away: Not funny. Well, I take that back, more like LESS funny. But you get the idea.

    PS
    Oh, I'll bet you'd all just LOVE to have Miko and her Detect Evil eye beams around now, wouldn't you? Didn't know a (Lawful) good thing when you had it, didja? :P
