    Its nice seeing Roy finally accepting things as they are, instead of what he wishes for them to be.

    Yay, new comic. Also like the idea of a mold randomly having a potion of fire resistance.

    I think they should consider "hiring" a NPC cleric....

    So nice to see Roy and Haley bonding over the issue of money.

    Its a silly D&D joke! I can appreciate the story for what it is, but its nice to see those crop up now and again.

    Common sense from Roy?

    I'm afraid this may come back to haunt the Order. I fear that being able to raise Durkon (or not being able to raise Durkon) could be pivotal in the upcoming confrontation.

    Edited to add: Beautiful artwork in this one. The scenery is great.

    I wonder what the odds are of a Dwarf cleric giving them a pro bono Resurrection once the Order, you know, saves them from an eternity with Hel. :P I mean, Resurrection ain't cheap, but under the circumstances...

    There are three halflings at the Godsmoot. Guess how the Gods will destroy the world if Dvalin votes yes.

    "One time I scrubbed the mold out of the Guild showers and it dropped 2d4 copper pieces and a potion of Fire Resistance".

    Hilarious.

    And Roy now refers to the corpse of his best friend as "The Vampire", who is not Durkon, who he still hopes to resurrect. Now that his common sense is not clouded by a dozen tiny druids casting Obscuring Mist of feels.

    I think the fact that she specifies "2d4 cp" rather than "5 cp" or whatever made this joke exponentially funnier.

    That Haley would suffer a mild rash just from the event occurring makes me wonder what exactly would happen to her if she was forced to watch the money change hands.

    Not that I would force her. That seems much too cruel and unusual even for Xykon.

    Haley's point about the all-you-can-eat is right! It should have included all-you-can-drink too. That place was run by a real cheapskate, you know, someone like ... er ... Haley...

    On the other hand ... DWARF cleric. The race that stereotypically loves gold just a wee bit less than their mothers.

    The line about the mould was great. I'm glad there's still the occasional D&D joke thrown in every now and again.

    It's also incredibly practical for mould to have fire resistance. sort of

    I really liked the panel with Haley and Roy looking at the landscape
    but just as some things can be right and useless at the same time, can’t something be wrong...and priceless?

    For some reason, between panel 6 and panel 7 Roy and Haley turn from facing into the ship, to facing off the ship.

    Nothing like some good ol' fashioned character development! I like the progression of Roy's logic and acceptance. Plus the moment with him and Haley looking out over the railing was a nice touch.

    Heh, vintage OotS! It's special and heart-warming, like watching your favourite band play your favourite song off their first album, even though you like their newest stuff better.

    Wahahahahaha! That killed me. I always found it bizarre to be encountering rats and slime and etc that are all hauling around gold pieces and other crap. Haley totally nailed it! Gold pieces and a potion from scrubbing the bathroom - priceless! Heh, thanks for that chuckle.

    Well, clearly the shower mold was gearing up for an intense, years long war with the fire mold growing in the swamp out back.
