    Wonder what that plan entails, and if it will be like a normal Elan plan

    Aww. And yeah, Elan, you know the tropes pretty well. I think that's about as good as any man is going to get from his girlfriend's daddy.

    Cue the speculation on what the plan is. I bet it involves a lot of exposing evil plans.

    More unspoken plans, Elan? Just be wary of trying to pull the same trick too many times.

    Great strip, Giant. I loved the Ian and Haley moment.

    Now I'm really jealous of Elan's character arc.

    I hope that one day my future girlfriend's father is as understanding as Ian Starshine

    Another great comic, I loved the development of Haley's relationship with her father.

    Nice strip!

    More evidence for my theory that we'll be seeing an off-the-main-storyline book or something on the rise and fall of Tarquin's empire.

    "What is it? Explosive Runes?" - brilliant callback.

    And the final-panel exchange between Ian and Elan? Hilarious.

    Hooray! After the emotional roller coaster of the previous ~80 strips, I'm glad we're getting some light-hearted fun!

    D'aaaaaaaaaaaaw.

    Speaking as a guy who met his now-father-in-law when the latter walked into a room shirtless and carrying a smoking rifle, I'm with Elan on this one. High praise!

    The plan (or everything else) is sort of (relatively) ok.

    Starshine is OK with his possible new relative.

    So, did Elan got a magic ring (without knowing) that increased his intel stat? Or did the GM let him roll again his int stat?

    Good strip today.

    Yay for secret plans and stuff getting done!

    Also, I really like how Ian Starshine is developing as a father to Haley. Maybe next he'll apologize for teaching her to be paranoid and untrusting.

    As the father of three daughters, I agree with Elan, it's the best he can hope for.

    I wonder if the "Truly" phrasing is a recurring motif?

    If so, I like it.
