    Belkar's new career: dumpling catering... now, we know what got crossed with Mr. Scruffy's wishes back in the dream illusion!

    Apparently, there's a cross-religion, cross-race secret mission among clerical types going on. Perhaps, the Gods are starting to get worried about these Rifts...

    I get the distinct feeling that Roy will find a kindred soul in Wrecan.

    this cleric seems a little too curious for her own good.....especially if its a secret mission. yeah. this is not going to end with Belkar serving dumplings at all.....its going to end with some very important secret being let out of the bag to the wrong person and its all downhill from there....you just know it....

    Not checking in for a while and seeing a whole bunch of new pages is good.

    So new characters for the main plot or just a sidequest?

    Weirdly, the first thing that came to mind was that she was probably going to take the title of "Most Cosplayed OotS Character."


    Edit: Now it occurs to me that this storyline might be the introduction of another of the "Nine Sides."

    I wonder what weapon this Wrecan guy uses.

    They seem to know some things about vampires, but not enough and probably not the right ones.

    My desire for dumplings went through the roof with this comic.

    Interesting though. I can't figure out the mix of knowledge religion of these clerics. I wonder if this one realizes that the vampire does the whole soul replacement thing and is just too ditzy to figure it out, or if she's on the list of clerics that don't have a clue.

    I was wondering where I had heard the name "Wrecan" on these boards before, and I came across this thread.

    Is this the promised Kickstarter cameo? If so, I only wish that he had lived to see this tribute in person.

    Yes and no.

    Veldrina is the promised Kickstarter cameo. Wrecan is simply a tribute to a longtime member who passed.

    Can't be, it was said to be announced in the news when it was happening. IIRC. Well dang, ninjaed by a Giant.


    Not sure I get the last line of the comic. They shoulda brought Belkar?

    I'm not sure where the pings at her intellect are coming from. We had a whole arc with a fairy and a moral explaining how instant paranoia and secrecy are both bad for you and not normal outside of adventure parties. And that fairy is one of the smartest individuals in the setting.

    Bamboo steamer and Belkar in a paper hat? I don't get the reference.

    OT: I like this new cleric and her bodyguard. I get a real 'Cloud Cuckoolander and her keeper' vibe here. Hopefully she'll drive THPoH crazy enough to reveal himself.

    Like Wrecan said--it's just a matter of time.

    Does this mean they shall pass through the comic briefly, and then be seen no more? Shame, they seem like very entertaining characters.

    Heh, for a moment I thought this was Elan who had taken to wearing that Belf of Gender changing, and then disguised himself as an Elven cleric (he's got the CHA for it, anyway...).

    Or perhaps there IS another sibling (half-sibling, then) among Tarquin's offspring...
