    Oooh, uh-oh.

    Poor Elan. At least Haley is already getting used to speaking again. That was probably the best time to make that mistake.

    Bwahaha! She smacked him with the clue bat and he STILL doesn't get it! XD Spectacular jokes in this strip, too.

    Good comic, good comic. So who *is* that Don guy, anyway? Is someone nudging in on Elan's territory?

    I find it very interesting how lightly elan takes this.

    You would think he would be freaking out (in a good way)

    Elan has probably had confessions of love in the past. I bet he's used to it.

    Well this is an obvious turn of events I bet you the rest of the OotS comes bursting in next comic. Also the line about Elan's clothes made me chuckle :D

    Ooo, suspenseful! Although I do wonder how Elan managed to be subdued that easily. Perhaps that Cha addition to damage is only useable a certain number of times a day?

    After the fight, after haley leaves the room. What Haley said will sink in.

    : Wait a minute. Haley's in love with me!?

    He's not in shock. He's just being Elan.

    Or possibly he was double-teamed and caught off guard?

    I mean, he's better than Nale at this point, but Nale was healed and had Sabine on his side. Elan may be more powerful now, but he's still only one level ahead of Nale.

    Haley's brain has really atrophied during her babble-phase, hasn't it?
    I actually missed deciphering the word balloons.
    At least it would have made it interesting rather than listen to Haley talkk herself into another mental babble-phase.

    Maybe she could blame it on mind control? Puh-lease...

    And after having Elan make such a grand comeback to just put him underfoot of Sabine? What? No snappy quips for a succubus whose lover he'd just kicked the stuffing out of?

    Even though this is from the last comic does anyone else find it ironic that Sabine has sex with well anyone she wants yet she is calling Haley a skank?

    "I had other stuff on my mind. Sabine's boot, for example"

    Did the Dashing Swordsman also give a Witty AC boost? That may explain why Nale didn't yet finish stabbing Elan

    Sabine has Damage Reduction, so even with his Cha-to-damage, Elan probably can't hurt her too much. Assuming, of course, that Captain Scoundrel's rapier isn't either silver or cold iron (depending on whether Sabine is a devil or demon). Remember:

    + a few buff spells >

    Or it isn't as effective against demons.

    Or maybe when he uses it, the other person's CHA bonus is added to thier save. Nale would be out of luck, but Sabine would have no problem. She is a sex demon after all

    Ugg, trying to go back on it all already. She will probably lose her ability to speak again since she refuses to talk straight.

    hm... well, it is true he only has 1 level of Dashing Swordsman...

    And Sabine DID survive against Roy for a bit, with buffs true, but Nale is about as good as a Bulls Strength and a Cat's Grace...

    Very good, I was pounding my head into the table when Elan was just not getting it. I agree that after the battle, it's going to hit him. It's just that there's so much going on, and after so much stress on his brain, he's is only half-functional.

    It was funny how calm Elan is about the whole confession thing.

    Well, to give Elan some credit, this may be due to the class of Dashing Swordsman. It would be necessary for the heroic swordsman to be aloof when confronted with the rescued maiden's words of love.

    Besides, it is far better than Elan turning into a silly sappy romantic now. He's got to be 'Han Solo' from episode 4 before he gets to episode 5!

    I am enjoying his newfound level of coolness...
