    Dammit, I just realized that my PCs had an unlimited supply of arrows the last several sessions.

    Looks like the people thinking there would be some passing of the greatsword around, were right.

    Well, I guess that settles the semantic debate about the identifier "human with the greatsword."

    Maybe they can give it to Belkar? He'd be a halfling with a greatsword. Not a human, right?

    I think at that point, the elemental would register the lack of a human with a greatsword and start attacking them indiscriminately.

    Then the elemental would start attacking them at random. Only Human+Greatsword gives us a tank role in this fight.

    Maybe Elan can toss around some images of greatsword-wielding humans next.

    Which would have to be images of Roy with pretty hair and lipstick, right?

    Nice to see the jokes back!
    Also: are they actually hurting that thing?

    I figured all humans would look alike to an elemental. That is a nicely exploitable weakness.

    I was hoping to see more of the careful and effective strategies that did a nice job of neutralizing the Linear Guild before it all fell apart. Roy is a far more interesting character when he uses that Int score.

    Many thanks for the swift updates, Giant. Not sure how long Haley can handle being under concentrated fire from the elemental, but she is less injured than Roy.

    And Elan's running out of puns, haha.

    Oh Roy, you and your need for realism may doom us all.

    Heh Elan, you just keep loving that girl.

    Great comic Giant! Thanks for the fun way this storyline seems to be going now. After recent events, I think we needed it.

    Y'know, I've been reading this since before strip 80 and I always just kind of figured she had an undrawn quiver somewhere. I never put serious thought into it. Hilarious.

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