    Another amusing tidbit: Bandana knows better than to rely on Belkar for anything.

    The ship's going down because the engines have failed, just like the Enterprise. Does this mean we're in for Star Trek jokes?

    You'd think Roy would need two hands to hold the rope. Does that Belt of Giant's Strength make a single one of his arms equal to two normal people?

    Poor Roy, the gag with Belkar is hilarious
    Elan is back to partecipating....but now we have more reasonable people leading the operations for once.

    Yes, that's actually the joke... But seriously, his STR is like at the very least 22, up to around 28. Average person's STR would be like 10...

    Just noticed a detail Roy's sword acquired in the art upgrade: there's a row of three X's on the hilt. No doubt meant to be a leather thong wrapped around it to improve the grip.

    If my recollection is correct it indeed could. The maximum str a human can have is 18 to start. Chances are being sailors their strength scores are much closer to the average. Roy I believe has at least 18. Maybe as high as 20 depending what he started with and how points were added as he levelled. A belt of giant strength can add anywhere from +4 to +10. Giving Roy somewhere between 24 to 30 strength as a guess.

    There were two sailors and aiding some one only adds a few points so let's say the strongest sailor has a strength around 16 with one person aiding giving atotal of about 18.

    Roy could easily hold the rope two sailors were struggling with.

    Poor Roy, always haunted by the decision of some nincompoops ten years ago that full attack bonus and bonus feats are enough to make a class.

    Vaarsuvius: saves the ship by only using a single spell

    Elan: saves a mans life with his puppet

    Roy: has to stand around holding a rope.

    Roy has officially become less useful than Elan. thats gotta sting.
    I'm also on discord as "raziere".

    Funny how easy it looks for Roy. I liked that, though I'd have thought it was more the weight of the 2 sailors than their strength which held the rope in place, while Roy doesn't even feel any force, despite I doubt he weights as much as 2 people.

    Wait did Roy accidently pull the mast out? or did that happen before, I know B told him not to pull... I dunno I'm super tired right now but wanted to say I loved the whole joke poking fun at the ridiculous stats of PCs at this point :P

    I love how casually he's holding the rope after we saw two guys barely holding it a few panels before. Sometimes I forget how crazy strong D&D protagonists actually are.

    In V's place, I'd really think about what to watch closely - something inflammable or non-flammable - just in case the Directors decide that positive combustibility of that particular part of the ship should be exploited to suit their plans. On the other hand, though, such paranoia might not be the best of ideas.

    I particularly like how Roy's just casually standing there, loosely holding a line that two people were struggling with just moments ago. It really demonstrates how strong he really is.

    Not to mention it made me giggle. :)

    Hehe. "Inflammable." :)

    Also, is it just me or does it seem like we're having a few strips dedicated to re-establishing basic facts about the characters? Maybe for new readers?

    I had to look up the word "wharf", but it was well worth it. I love how casually Roy is holding the rope.

    Great comic as always. The new art style allows for some seriously impressive graphics.
