    Wow. I'm not sure if Elan's plan is meant to just be silly, or so complex that it just might work, but all I can say is: wow.

    w00t!

    Still no explanation for the leprechaun costume, but I get the feeling Elan's plan was as convoluted as Nale's Wile E Coyote blueprint...

    Wow
    And now we still don't know what the leprechaunsuit means :S

    I agree with SiD. The complexity of Elans plan is new input for the debate that Elan and Nale really have the same stats.

    I really didn't have to know the inside information on Elans mother.

    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.

    What the....

    Okay, if we still needed prove Nale and Elan are relatives - here it is. Someday I want to see the blueprints of this plan.

    Bonus points for for Valentino reference, sexiest undead alive and overall bizarreness.

    P.S. I still need to fit the basketball in it, but otherwise the plan makes sense for me..

    Pretty much covers it, yes. I have a feeling I'm going to spend the rest of the day thinking about what Elan's plan was. Oh, the ideas that have already crossed my mind...

    "Pretty good, considering we wouldn't be having this scene if it didn't forward the plot in some way."

    I'll avoid mentioning any Fruit-Pie Sorcerors.

    I love swashbuckler characters.

    Who wants to bet that the ropes Thog and Elan swung in from are suspended from the airship?

    Wow. Just... wow.

    Right from the request for the corkscrew all the way to the salad stuffed llama (step 3!) I was laughing.

    So it's clear we're never going to know about the leprechaun outfit, but I think this was a fitting way to leave that. (We're obviously not going to get Elan's plan since, for the plot, it's not important anymore.)

    Hide in the wooden Alpaca on the entire journey on board the airship. THe potato salad is for sustenance along the way. The basketball might be for Thog's amusement, while the skis might be to help traverse dig into the mountain of potato salad. Not sure about the soap, though. Bathing, maybe? No water, though........

    The expression on the airship captain's face after Elan explains the very convoluted plot to him (in one breath) is priceless.

    Julio is a fantastic NPC. I do hope he becomes a recurring character...anyone who can pull off "I promise I'll be the soul of discretion. If you don't tell me, it'll just rattle around in my head for days" without being a TOOL gets a few points in my book.
