    OMG, I love Meteor Swarm!

    Plus, Xykon's so cool... I mean, good adventurers are so blase now a days... but villians, with depth and real power to go 'monologue -> death!' Yeah, that's happiness right there.

    Thanks Rich!

    Hope you're feeling better - though your fevered writing hasn't suffered one bit :)

    Well, Roy's kinda boned.

    And to think, Xykon was actually employing diplomacy to a situation.

    Oh, sonova crap. New comic already!

    I felt like we'd had this conversation in the comic before - like when lizard-V and the Dragon were discussing the issue of V's hit point total.

    The metagaming that Xykon was trying to pull to get Roy off his back was a neat touch too. "Go level up for a while so we can have a good fight".

    Lets see here... falling from hundreds of feet in the air after just being hit by a Meteor Swarm, barely hanging onto consciousness, and the knowledge that if the fall doesn't kill you (unlikely), then the hobgoblins below most certainly will kill you. There's only one way out of this for Roy that I can think of that doesn't involve him becoming a bloody smear on the ground below, and he'd better think of it quick.
    It's the simple things in life you treasure.

    There are some things in life worth making a fuss over. This probably isn't one of them.

    Heh, love the Harry Potter scar on Xykon's head now.

    But ouchies for poor Roy. On my screen the last panel is just blurry enough that I can't tell if his eyes are X's.

    Elflad sums it up for me. Whoa.

    Plus, Xykon's awesome as usual! I love philosiphy (sp?) type villains.

    Awesome job, Rich!

    We discussed this a while ago there are two ways out... one involves V the other...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mulligan - Have your pick, but speaking as a golfer AND a roleplayer, I still have to say that golf was around way before Magic the Gathering *GG*

    I seem to recall that earlier on in the forum, somebody made a question of whether an Ootser would ever be raised from the dead - I think that Roy might be in for some serious healing here, or he is going to be the first one...
