    Yay! Some epic action!

    Miron's pretty hurt right now, and Laurin must've wasted a ton of power points.


    EDIT! Yay, first comment! O_O

    It strikes me, once again, how truly massive that is for an Allosaurus.

    Never updated whilst I was on before. Thanks Giant.

    And what was that shield thing that deflected the arrow from Miron's head ?

    Hopefully, she'll run out of PP eventually, otherwise its going to be hard to get out of this one.

    I'm kind of wondering if that wormhole thing is something she's sustaining and able to move, or if she's seriously blowing a 9th level power worth of PP every round to keep up with the Order. If the latter, she's probably going to burn out quickly.

    Yay, I love getting surprised by a new comic. Great use of worm hole can't wait to see how the Order figures a way out of this. Quick question though, what if someone shot three arrows at Tarquin?

    First time I've ever commented on the first page... Anyway. This is starting not to look good. I don't like the odds of a banged up Order versus team Tarquin. And seriously... Mr. Snatch Arrow is starting to get annoying

    So Miron's a full caster as well?

    That's . . . very bad for the Order.

    That's the first I noticed that Haley's boots glow lime green when she is hasted. I wonder if that occurred in past strips.

    I really don't know much about psionics, how much power do these wormholes take? And any idea what Haley was hit with?

    Also what is that disc blocking the critical hit for Miron?

    Certainly love the Psionic class. :)
    And also wonder how that combat will end. Would be quite some etasing if they get at elast one close to the rift again but than not end up in it anyway.

    Hmm.. so Miron can cast Greater Dispell Magic. Hopefully he can only cast it once today otherwise Durkon may be in trouble - but then he can reapply it from the staff, hopefully.

    The fastest way to corner the Order is to disable their Allosaurus which means disabling Belkar. :( I can't imagine the Order without him. Alas. Perhaps Durkon can pick up the slack as the evil foil on the team.

    Love the lime green haste effect from the boots!

    Boots of Speed: As a free action, the wearer can click her boot heels together, enabling her to act as though affected by a haste spell for up to 10 rounds each day. The duration of the haste effect need not be consecutive rounds.

    I'm preemptively enjoying the gnashing of teeth from gamers on Laurin's dramatic wasting of power points and how she could've killed them all with X power instead. It's as good as comic itself.

    Pretty sure it's one of the boots' powers. The lime green glow made it through the dyeing process.

    I gotta say, the blue caster (Miron?) being annoyed at being shot in the heart is pretty much my favorite part of this. Just... "Ow. Dangit."

    And it's SO ON.

    Order proved Team Tarquin is not invulnerable. I don't know exactly what Laurin did to Haley but I doubt Haley has been one-shot out of the battle.

    Laurin is burning through the power points.

    And next comic: dino-on-dino action! Tarquin-Roy! Chekov's whip (except, of course, Tarquin has had a chance to re-equip when he went back and equipped himself with an army).

    I think V caught Haley (who was stunned, maybe?) by hand, and Blackwing caught her bow.

    I think it's about time for Elan to cast an illusion of an Allosaurus with a halfling, a vampire dwarf, a swordsman and a bard with his hand out reached towards himself riding in another direction then the one they're going in.
