    All Right!

    " I killed a PC today and all I got was this lousy t-shirt!"

    This whole update was just full of the awesomeness the Giant has consistantly shown he can pump out when he wants to.

    Once again, the Eye proves it's worth. I hope manages to hold onto it after this battle.

    is a moron, can't even remember what the heck he's wearing right Freaking NOW!

    Ow Ow Ow......teehee.

    Is one of Elan's abilities the ability to have others fall for his illusions no matter how stupid they are?

    Possibly? ;)

    I can remember a lot of times they didn't get the intended response, but they were usually believed. Illusory romantic prospects are believed, but frequently balked by a committed relationship, lack of attraction, and/or fear of cooties.

    Come to think of it, he fell for one of his own illusions once. *pause* Not like that.

    Nice that Haley was calling Elan "Honey" - just because you're in the middle of a battle for your very lives is no reason not to remind someone that they're special to you.

    This is the first strip where I have ever correctly predicted everything that would happen - namely, Belkar showing up with Fireballs and Elan throwing off the hobbos with an illusion.
    And I was careful enough not to post what I thought on the forums, thereby ensuring that the esteemed Giant would not instantly change the plot when he noticed someone had guessed part of it.
    I think I earned myself a cookie.

    Very funny.

    The sad thing is, this is a definite improvement on his previous illusions .

    Absolutely great comic, totaly hilarious, also Elan putting his illusion in the wrong clothes was a great touch! Great work, keep it up!

    Elan pulled an Elan right there, but hobgoblins didn't notice. So all is fine. Awesome strip.

    I killed a PC and all I got was this stupid t-shirt = Bwahahahahahaha!

    Good comic, and now we have some of the plot lines coming together. Belkar has rejoined the group, the Order and the NPCs have found a good way out of the immediate line of fire, and now we'll be getting back to the throne room soon. In fact the only thing up in the air, (so to speak ) is Roy and how he'll be recovered.

    I'd say that's the perfect time to remind them.

    And Elan, much like Xykon, seems to have Int as his dump stat and Cha boosted to unsightly levels. Though in this case with the illusions, it worked perfectly.
