    Belkar's bit at the end was a nice touch.

    Is it wrong that I found O Danny Boy on my computer then listened to it while synching up the words?

    So it takes the death of Roy for Elan to find his voice? Bizarre.

    Oh man, Brilliant!
    Y'know, normally i'd be against a comical end to an emotional page, but in this case i don't mind as much since you don't really feel THAT emotional... i mean, it's emotional noen the less, but not AS emtional as it would have been if we could actually hear those lyrics done to music (kinda hard to try a sing it in my head... don't know the tune well enough)... seems like one of those moments that if it were done in a film, it would have me rather moved... "O Buddy Roy"... someone who knows how to sing and play guitar/piano should record that tune

    I mean think about it, many of the hobgoblins and even BELKAR of all poeple was moved by Elan's song...

    And it does seem that they are indeed planning a raise dead for Roy, no surprise there... though i wonder if anything will stop them?

    Amiria,

    I'm not sure you realize the half of it. Belkar's being really helpful: By stopping the clerics from reaching the dead, he's preventing a second wave from getting a foothold. More importantly, he's stopping Roy from being brought back on the other side before Durkon can cast Raise Dead or equivalent.

    As if we didn't already have enough reasons to like Belkar.

    That was the most awesomist tear-jerkingist strip ever. I don't think a comic strip has ever made me depressed before.

    Hey, that was really nice. Good (well, "parody" seems the wrong word, but I guess that's it) of Danny Boy, Giant. I liked how everyone on both sides stopped to listen.
