    Wow, Belkar being smart. But why no request to have the mark removed? He's not helping that goal. Oh, well. At least Haley totally rocked. And I loved Durkon, as always with his off-screen healing comment.

    Oh, interesting -- they don't know Miko died yet. Are paralyzed characters able to see and/or hear? (In other words, is there a chance they can find out what happened through O-Chul if he survived? Or would they need to talk to someone like Soon to obtain the information of the battle?)

    Also...how are they gonna get Roy's body back...?
    Simple, by going to where there aren't tens of thousands of hobgoblins and assorted baddies.

    Why is it that Belkar manages to always steal the strips? No matter, it just makes him more and more my favorite member of the team. "Insult of Opportunity" has now been added to my lexicon.
    May I have the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the firepower to make the difference.

    Old No-name stepping in and ruining Belkar's moments of genius again. I have a feeling those two no-name guards are going to be around for awhile.

    But...his body is out there in the MIDDLE of tens of thousands of hobgoblins and assorted baddies. Or at least those aforementioned tens of thousands of hobgoblins and assorted baddies are between the noble Order and Roy's body.

    Great Comic, good to see a paladin ignore the charge and smite impulse .

    You know, I thought Hinjo was intelligent at first. Squandering his heavy hitters on a futile battle, though? No wonder they lost if that's who's running things. He's no Redcloak, let alone a Hamster.

    Fantastic comic, of course, with a lovely sollilique by the barbarian.

    It's nice to see that Hinjo is more flexible than Miko was. Was Belkar's "lovely shade of tan" comment a reference to Hinjo becoming a fallen paladin if he leaves the city?

    So it looks like Hinjo and the no name guards are going to join up with OOTS. Should make for some interesting group dynamics, if they end up adventuring together.

    No, the tens of thousands of bad guys are in the city, after having charged through one of the breaches in the walls. Roy's body, on the other hand, is out on the plain outside the walls.

    There may be a few hobs between the Order and their fallen leader, but not nearly enough to give them a problem.

    If you are looking for moment-to-moment rules accuracy from this comic, you probably should stop reading. You are guaranteed to be continually frustrated and disappointed, because I don't care about that at all.

    I have played Paladins that have no qualms about retreating away from insurmountable odds, usually stating the following.
    "I serve my God first, before all others. Suicide is not part of my religion."
    <<EDIT: While I'm on the subject, one of my other favorite Paladin quotes is:
    and this is OOC:
    "I don't need a Holy Symbol to Turn Undead. I'm a Paladin. I AM a Holy Symbol!"
    The DM accepted it, too. 'Course, he was a decently high-level.>>

    Where's that quote from? And was whoever who said it REALLY a fine maker of roast chicken?

    Dammit, I knew I should have bought some OotS stock! Damn you, procrastination!

    Actually, I really like the team up between such powerful characters, Hinjo is going to be a great addition to the team.

    What a moral dilemma for a paladin! Leave the fight so there is a chance to win or honor the code and stay to fight...

    Great comic, Giant!

    Well, technically Roy is still out on the open plains, and the entire hobbo army just entered the city. The Order is still on the outer wall, so it shouldn't be that big a deal to stealth out under cover of chaos. (Especially when the hobbos are already wearing their "I killed a PC and all I got was this stupid T-shirt" shirts.)

    This was pretty nice, and as much as I hate to admit it, the right course of action. It doesn't feel good to leave people in need, but the American Revolution might have been lost rather quickly if Washington hadn't used the tactical retreat option as often as he did.

    Oh, and Hinjo getting pwned by Belkar... priceless. "Insult of Opportunity"... I wonder if that's in a Fighter College textbook, or the Sneaky PC's Guide to One-Upping the NPCs.
    Now if you don't mind, I am somewhat preoccupied telling the laws of physics to shut up and sit down.
