    Well, now we know who's been sleeping for the past...year and a half? Two?

    Haha, that's actually a really good plan. And intimidating as hell too. Nowhere to run, and if they try to run into the rift, the Order will be pincushions before they can take a move action.

    Guess this is as good a time as any for Elan's plan. I hope.

    Wow, don't think I've ever been online when it updated before. Wonder what Tarquin wants to talk with Elan and Haley about.

    "Good, Good."

    Even if the Star Wars jokes have mostly stopped, I can't help but think that's a sign that Tarquin's about to do something nasty.

    Also, minor thing, the last panel Tarquin says "Thought this division is also trained for plot-critical reveals." That should be a "though", I think.

    Edit: Ninja'd by a second! Now I just feel like I'm badgering.

    I was going to edit my "first!" to be comic relevant. Found out it was deleted when I went back to do so, actually.

    Anyway, this does raise the issue: did Tarquin REALLY bring the army for "dramatic tension"? I mean, probably not, but he does seem surprised that the Gate is gone, so it could have be that the wind is out of his sails and he's just keeping face. As for the family meeting... this is almost assuradly about whether or not to kill Nale.

    I really hope that people don't read Belkar's line about V's gender as fact over his perception, but... who am I kidding

    Sorry. I can't believe that I actually thought that the army was there for something other than to make Tarquin look awesome.

    Seems Tarquin is a lot more forgiving with even his least favorite son than with anyone else. Methinks Nale will be teamed up with the oots soon.

    Tarquin is going to be moving on the elves? Or something. I still don't quite know what his plan is here. Maybe he's headed to dwarven lands? I suppose Nale would have told him the last gate was there. Tarquin likes existing and I don't think he'd want Xykon ending it all.

    You too? High five!

    So, who else bets that Tarquin is actually furious right now and is just hiding his emotions?

    dramatic tension AND ensure that Greenhilts aware of exactly the position Tarquin is negotiating from, he doesnt want the OoTS to think they can jsut escape and hes not aware exctly what sort of movement abilities they have, he wants to ensure they stay put unitl hes done talking

    OH theres pyramid still intact under the rift, looks like V should be fine

    "That's a lot of mooks."

    I am curious, in the last panel, should he be saying "Though" or "Thought"? I just had interpreted it much like "although, this division..." Not trying to step on any toes, of course. :)
