    I see the "Roy can make a fight of it" people were the right ones this time.

    Applause!

    So... the rift is out of the question now. One question answered.

    Tarquin is trying to force some of his own adventuring party on Elan. Really, Elan and Haley did the only thing they could.

    Well, absent some kind of outside force it looks like it's going to be a long and a gruelling day.

    Too bad Belkar wasn't forced to do a "Luke in the Taun-Taun"

    ETA: it's a gas that T has the nerve to call "Zyklon" a B-level villain!

    Yep, Tarquin thinks he's the big bad of the story. What a deluded fruitbasket he's turned out to be.

    I think it's kind of heartwarming that everyone is so eager to keep alive.

    Great strip again Giant!

    Ugh.... Having Tarquin act like an idiot continues. Not a fan of current sub-arc.

    At least it confirms that Tarquin has little clue about Xykon, which is what the forum was suspecting, and expects him to be a minor villain. But still, disappointing that he is being "idiot plotted".

    It's actually quite interesting seeing how much effort Roy is putting into keeping Belkar alive, given his attitude a couple of dozen strips back. Also good to see those vampire powers are coming in handy.

    I'm starting to get a forum vibe from Tarquin, talking about how the story "should" be. Goodness knows we've had a few people try to tell Rich how to write his own story.

    Is it okay that I laughed way too much at arrows crossbow bolts sticking out of Durkula's head? I'm not evil now, am I?

    Chan chan chan!

    Very good comic!

    By the way, I'm not sure but the second page panel 7, seem there was a flaw with Roy's disegn. On that panel Roy don't has any injurie and all the others he has.

    Well, so much for them escaping into the rift...there's about 100+ mooks between them and it, and tons more in the wings. As usual, The Giant masterfully defies expectations.

    I also just realized the arrows sticking out of Durkon's head that he could care less about.

    Yay for Elan!

    And Tarquin, it's not your son's win if you're putting your own people into the party. Doesn't work that way.

    Yeah, even Belkar was surprised when Roy beheaded the dino and bisected the rider with one blow.

    Great, great comic re-iterating Tarquin's thinking and motives.

    Wow, great cleave can wreck.

    And Elan, don't listen to him. That was a fine thesis in such a short amount of time!

    Edit: Is it just me or does Roy seem mysteriously uninjured in that 3rd to last panel?

    Things are not looking good for poor Belkar! Also, "Zyklon." Classic.

    On one hand, things are bad. On the other, laughed nonstop at Rob Redblade and Murkon Lightninghammer!

    I'm still waiting fo Elan to punch Tarquin.
