    I like the ending for the poisonous arrow.
    If there's nothing out there, then what was that noise?

    So that's where the arrow went...

    Good job, Giant, as always.

    And that silences the omnouis poisonus arrow questions and theories. the Death knight, with flames coming out of his eyes and his horse rearing up is cool, but what is the rip sound there for?

    Why does a halfling fall faster than a severed human head? Marvelous comic, giant.

    Awsome strip by the Giant... Death Knights Kick!!
    I'm guessing that V must have already buffed with protect from arrows.
    *EDIT* Oops missed the buff at strip # 422

    Ah, poor V. All that intelligence, but she doesn't understand seige tactics that well.

    This should be interesting.

    And kudos to Rich for having fun with all the arrow comments! That was brilliant.

    I wonder if this was an answer to all the speculation threads on the arrow.

    I love how the arrow just missed everyone it was speculated to hit. Though I wasn't expecting it to cause any of Belkar's prophecied kills, I was thinking it would play some important role in the battle somehow - but I like the way it turned out instead much better than that idea.

    He's ripping off the blue "Xykon" robe to reveal his ass-kicking death knight armor.

    Yup, he/she cast it in this comic.
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    Hah! The arrow bounces off of V!
    Now THAT is a fine wrapping up of a plot thread...

    I also like the use of troops for no other purpose that to build a ramp for the leader and the elite troops to use. Nice!

    My heart! I've been worried about that damned arrow for ages. Now I'm worried that someone was going to pick up the bloody thing and nick someone.

    The McGuffin is in play.

    That was him ripping up the blue robe that he was wearing to imitate Xykon.

    And the arrow's destination got a LOL out of me. Apparently karma is working in Belkar's favor...it's just too bad that pesky protection from arrows got in the way.
    Google query for the Giant's posts, for those of us who think they're way more interesting than yet another speculation thread but don't have time to read every thread on the forum to find one he's posting in.

    Actually, there was never a real chance of the arrow hitting V, as one of the first things she cast was "Protection from Arrows" when the horde arrived.

    I am reminded of Zaf Brannigan. I can hear him devising his strategy now: "We'll send wave after wave of our own soldiers in until we have enough corpses to scale the walls!"
    If you can read this you are too close.

    The Death Knight had better become a named character. He's just THAT awesome.

    And very much in the image of his masters, what with the kill-your-minions-for-trivial-use tactics.
