    Heh. "My other airship is a carpet."

    Oh, and Mr. Scruffy and Bloodfeast are all cuddled up and it is adorable.

    V is as awesome as always.
    That "Ray of Frost" was superb.

    Oh, and Mr. Scruffy sleeping cuddled with Bloodfeast is among the cutest things ever

    Hah! Knew V wasn't barefoot!

    By the way, so it's still fairly rainy out there... does this mean V has way more concentration than he did when they fought Miko?

    Even with all that character development, V still derives enjoyment from showy demonstrations of vir supreme arcane power.

    As usual, BWing has the most amazing lines ever. And funny metaphors.
    Can only thank GitP for being so good for so long.

    "Let's not sully our relationship with cheap lies."

    I do so love Blackwing.

    Also, loving all the new art details. "My other airship is a carpet," heh. The cone of cold looks AMAZING, too.

    And oh, right. Wizard.

    I love the way the new art does the cold effects. Absolutely beautiful. And may I say Giant that your writing is superb, the only webcomic I read! Good work

    I just realized that one of the propellers is broken in this. It definitely looks like they'll have to land for repairs, even if they avoid a crash landing.

    Even if I drastically cut down on sweets, I can still enjoy that rare piece of candy - perhaps even more than before.

    Incredibly cute animals in this scene. Poorly Blackwing, and sleeping Belkar companions. Aaaawww.

    I've not been entirely sure what I thought about the new art style until this strip. Loving the wind effects and the magic. Keep up the good work!

    Strange that V looks more feminine to me now.

    Also, I dig his shoes... boots... whatever.

    "Thank you, Elan, for that key situational context." I love V sometimes.

    Mr. Scruffy and Bloodfeast in an airship over the ocean. Reminds me of a biblical story.

    The attention to even more detail than before is striking. So while the visual experience has improved, it's the story I'm comming back for.
    My personal folder is a graveyard of ideas, stuck in their dream phase.
    The "DM won't kill us" attitude is a bubble that sometimes needs to be bursted.
    There's an armor variant rule in UA that will drastically increase character survivability without completely bubble-wrapping them in plot invulnerability

    That seems most likely, given the Durkon-centric nature of this arc and prophecies to be fulfilled.

    I must be the least observant person on the planet.

    I JUST noticed, after reading the comic since 2007ish, THAT V HAS BEEN WEARING A CLOAK SINCE COMIC 1

    Hmm, not to much advancement plot wise, but it was quite funny with the "ray of frost" thrown in after the massive Cone of Cold. Poor Blackwing and being air-sick. I'm with V on this one, I find that very odd ^^

    The sticker says "my other airship is a carpet" right? Too tiny to tell the exact words even though the context/picture makes the general meaning clear.
