    Yes, it's undeservedly cruel :)

    Wonder what happens to Roy next.

    Speculations whether he's alive in 10...9...

    Shame the talisman was made to be durable really. Oh dear. What's the betting someone stands on it and calls ceila in later in battle? As for the "is he alive?" thing those eyes look X'd to me.

    And all those people so sure that he would break the talisman and summon his winged lover have their dreams dashed like Roy's body on the ground.

    Too soon?

    Yeah, I'm gonna say crossed eyes aren't a very good thing.

    Maybe the hobgoblins will accidentaly break the talisman, and Celia will get some of her own time in the limelight.

    Its never too soon.

    At least he didn't end up skewered on his own sword. That would be embarrassing (and fatal).

    I really like the strip format. Bill Waterson dabbled in the idea of breaking out of the traditional box with Calvin N Hobbes but I like how Rich just smashes it. Gave the falling a whole new meaning.

    Now we only have to hope that Roy isn't at -10
    No it's not that, it's Dan backwards, jeeze!

    Wow...I'm at a loss for words. I never expected that Roy would just die like that. I mean, I expected him to falll but most of the readers probably thought he wouldn't have hit the ground.

    Yep. Roy is dead. The crossed eyes kind of give it away. Wait a minute though, does this fulfill Belkar's prophecy? By giving Roy the ring of jumping he kind of caused Roy's death. And before Belkar gave Roy the ring he was betting with that assassin guy if Roy would do it because Belkar figured that it would kill Roy. Hmmm....

    Slightly too soon, yeah.

    Now I have slightly better command of my faculties, this comic is the single most powerful strip to date. No plot device, no gag, no deus ex machina, just a rather ignomious death.

    I'm completely sure this won't be permanent, but well played, sir! Your sense of drama is flawless!

    HOLY POOP!

    I think Nad's siggy says it all.

    Plus, he fell right on his head...and with a "splat" sound a effect. Such a "wet" sounding impact sound doesn't seem so very good. :(

    Beautifully done. At last, a comic that has a realistic falling time. Wonderfully done.

    And early, too! I haven't even had to leave for work yet. We love you, Giant.

    I saw the comic and actually said "Oh no!" out loud. This was the last thing I expected, but I don't see how this can be permenant. But as I just said, I've been proven wrong before! I hope he comes back though. I liked Roy. ._.
    Boo.

    The fall will break the talisman and celia will resurrect him?

    In the middle of a big ol' battle like that, there's sure to be at least one cleric with it prepared. I hope it's Durkon who revives him though. It would be fitting, I think.

    Hmmm I think I just channeled Belkar.

    Nice work Giant.

    A writer should never be scared of killing a major character for plot purposes, or indeed for a laugh just to hear the lamentation of their readers.
