    Outstanding. It's nice to see Elan come out of this whole thing with some solid character growth. It's also nice to see him come out of it without too much character growth...

    So, Tarquie's a "B-list" villain even for supporting character/hero-of-another-story Julio Scoundrel?

    Ouch!

    Ah, so when he says "Normal ten minutes" he means only twenty strips, right?

    And this has been an excellent capstone of Elan's development this arc. Hey, Giant, why didn't you put Elan on the cover of this book? Is it solely because he was on the cover of the first book?

    The Giant, killing my hopes and dreams with a simple comic title.

    The strip was pretty funny, but it was the title that really made me burst out laughing.

    Check this game out! Or at least give it a thumbs up.
    Why "because the plot said so" is not a good answer.

    Wow, I got here in the split second between the new strip posting and the old thread getting de-stickied. Don't think I've ever seen that before.

    Anyway, that's pretty much what I figured would happen - they're going to pick up Ian, and everybody agrees that the order of business after resolving the gates is toppling Tarquin & Co. Somehow I doubt that's how it'll actually work out, now that they've said so on-panel, but hey, stranger things have happened. And way to mature, Elan.

    Cool. It seems that Tarquin and this unresolved plot is actually going to be left hanging in the air. That is really nice and something for the epilogue.

    And Elan totally gets it, that is also nice. Life is not a story (well, his is, but that is only true for us, not him).

    Definitely a sign of denouement.

    Also, loving the dig at Tarquin.

    And I'm pretty certain the strip title is a meta commentary on the final panel.

    This is obviously a thing we need to take up in the forums.

    Order of the Stick: The Empire Strikes Back for 4d6 Damage
    Order of the Stick Advanced
    Order of the Stick 2: Arcane Boogaloo

    And I'm pretty much tapped. Anyone else wanna take up the torch?

    Huh.

    So it really was his innocence he lost in the fight with Tarquin.

    All the narrative, all the drama, is forever tainted by the shadow.

    "A normal ten minutes, not the decompressed 40-strips-equals-ten-minutes kind."

    That reminds me of Dragon Ball Z. Not the best memories I have, though.
    Let me tell you, "safe" is for NPCs. I live on the edge.

    Elan continues to grow. Good for him. He used to be my least favorite of the Order but he's been steadily climbing up since the beginning.

    Darn. The healing potion didn't fix her arm. That means it's going to be an issue later.

    The title of the panel is allowed to be meta-discussion because the characters are breaking the fourth wall.
