    I'm loving this air pirate! Looks like there's big changes in store for Elan. Explains his 'swashbuckler-style' entrance at the scene of the impending crime, though! Man... another cliffhanger weekend!!! Thanks, Giant!

    Do any of the others have prestige classes? They seem to be using fairly standard abilities. Elan is a fun character.

    Huh. I guess Elan'll be the first one of the OotS to take a prestige class, then.

    Awesome!

    This comic is good. While it is just a dialogue strip, the jokes and plot points are perfectly balanced in such a way that keeps it from dragging at all. This prestige class is a very cool idea and I really like the degree and manner of the 4th wall breaks. I can't find much wrong with this one, but it lacks importance and/or degree of hilarity to be a ten 9/10

    I wonder what witty one-liners Elan will use to defeat Nale. Anyone have some ideas?

    Well, the class certainly fits Elan, munchkiny or not. Great comic as usual.

    I can see Elan not being able to think of any "witty one liners" when it is time. LOL

    You gotta love those discount bins and third party source books... ;-)

    Hah! That's perfect for Elan! In fact, I really want to play that class...but I think anyone I'd play with would get a damage bonus against ME, in real life, thanks to how bad the puns would get...

    Anyway, now he gets to show what his 18 Charisma is worth OVER the hood!

    It is an invention of mine, though I won't rule out that there might be some similar class in a third-party sourcebook somewhere, since I have hardly read all such books that have come out since the advent of Third Edition. Basically, the Duelist PrC wasn't good enough because it used Intelligence too much to be useful to Elan, so I invented one more appropriate.

    Alright! The OOTS member least proficient in combat scored a prestige class that will allow him to be devastating with his weapon of choice! Sweet. Man, I hope one of the next comics is a big one of Nale and Elan fighting, with Elan totally wasting Nale with his new ability.
