    Spending that much of the comic playing up the obvious meaning of the title was a nice touch.

    I know all too well the feeling of putting in a load of effort towards doing something in-game, only for another player to upstage you.

    I was terrified reading this, thinking Belkar was going to bite it. I like this outcome much more.

    I sympathize with Belkar.
    Reasonable adult admitting his mistakes?!? If that catches on, some beings will be out of a job!
    Also Kill Steal. Sort of.


    I'm surprised that Belkar had absolutely no spare weapon. He got Tarquin's dagger not long ago, I suppose he sold one in Tinkertown.

    Does Belkar prepare his taunts at dusk or at dawn - or does they come naturally to him?

    Thanks Giant!

    So... Does Roy know how to control his weapon now? It seemed more deliberate this time around.

    Also... It's kind of sad how much more suffering Belkar has to deal with now that he's chosen to play the game. I hope he gets the Chaotic Good afterlife when he dies.

    I honestly though this was good night Vienna for Belkar. If he chokes on a snack or something while celebrating final victory over team evil I'll be slightly miffed.

    Do you think we'll see more Veldrina? V's bringing her tiger across.

    I missed Belkar! I understand that halflings get a bonus when fighting large creatures, but in the snow?

    The 'absolutely' from Roy was the topper.
    Just made Belkar's frustration that much more frustrating.
    Thanks Giant.

    Is this the first time we've seen a Goliath in the comic?

    After the showdown at Girard's gate, the party will rush to Kraagor's gate to find it was in Durkon's home fortress-burrow-thing. They will complete the Prophasy, and Team Evil will come riding over the horizon slaughtering everything that gets in their way.

    Not wrong quite yet!

    Poor Belkar... On some days nothing works out right.
    On the other hand V might have saved his hide. For a moment I was a bit worried there. For the lower planes I mean. The halfling would deserve whatever that halfvampire tried to cast.

    I was expecting Belkar to get upstaged over the Durkon thing. I'd kinda overlooked the goliath in the way.

    So, maybe one more strip to wrap up the chapter? Will we switch scenes to Team Evil? Hel's Angels? The Legion of Doom?

    I feel your pain Belkster... well, the emotional pain, not the got-flung-down-the-mountain-and-level-drained kind of pain.

    Also: yaaay for the first page! (why is this so important to me?)

    You know, I think Belkar's Intelligence score might not be all that bad. It wouldn't surprise me if it turns out that he has an average Intelligence score or slightly above average, like 10-12 or so.
