    Woah, perfectly timed refresh for me.

    And Julio lives to pun another day! Whew.

    Tarquin's "There you go! Was that so hard?" made me laugh. Glad to see everyone getting out of this. Looks like Tarquin and Laurin may be coming back after all. Guess we'll get to find out Laurin's favor after all.

    Cut a rug, heh...

    YES! Take that, narrative convention!

    And Elan ends up saving Julio's rear to cap it off - Tarquin should be proud. I mean, he won't, but he should.

    Julio lives to see another day, and Tarquin get's a reminder that this isn't a neat little story where he's the main antagonist. All is good.

    Wow, things actually turned out mostly okay! I say "mostly" because of Durkon, but then again we were all expecting much worse to happen.

    It's been a very long day.

    Unfortunately, Tarquin's several miles over the madness horizon and accelerating; I doubt he'll pay attention to that message.

    Yes! That was some excellent teamwork between Elan, the ship's crew, and Julio Scoundrel. Especially since there was a significant lack of ability to communicate between at least one group at any one time.

    Yeah, that was a pretty nice rescue.

    So what happens on the next half a page? Julio is pulled to safety or Tarquin fumes at being denied?

    I like that you don't consider Julio being killed anyway after almost escaping, but I don't blame you.

    Not what I expected but rather cool. Julio and Tarquin are still alive and I'm curious to see where things go.

    Doesn't Laurin have anything with that range? I think she can reach Mechane itself, not to mention Julio in the first round of swinging.

    If Tarquin takes an army off to follow them, does that count as bringing death and destruction back to the Dwarven lands? Not only is that death and destruction coming right on Durkon's heels, but it likely wouldn't have happened without his Sending - I'd call that prophecy fulfilled.

    Ooooh, yeah -- Julio, you stay alive! Yay! ^.^

    I love that Julio diagnoses exactly what the problem with Tarquin is: Tarquin thinks that everything revolves around him.

    I have the strong feeling that that will be the key to his final defeat. This is Tarquin's weakness: He cannot conceive of the story not being all about him.

    Been lurking for a few months. Just registered. Anybody else feel like the Giant added the "Horrible taste" things as a take that to all those who speculated Laurin taking Julio as her favor?

    Anyway, yes! Julio lives!
