    I was just rereading the old one!

    The first panel of them kissing looks exactly like Nale and Sabine's kiss... Go figure.

    And it's safe to assume that Elan and Haley and done... A lot together.

    Glad that they're getting Roy's body though. Belkar certainly knows how to keep himself from getting cursed. He's showing a decently high intelligence sometimes, you know?

    Nice comic with Haley and Elan. Too bad Belkar has to go because I know he's gonna screw something up.

    That was pretty good. Now we know how they're getting out of the city, how they're getting Roy's body and that the NPCs still have a chance for survival (they look like they're becoming a couple... awww). And we can see Belkar is the only one thinking about his curse (no one should be surprised about that).


    AND I SAW THE TATOO!!! Wonder if Elan has yet?

    All I could think of during the redshirt conversation was the following:

    "My one regret in all of this, is never being with you."
    "With me? You mean to say as... sex?"
    "I mean to say..."
    "To hell with this! I'm gonna live!"

    Oh, and good to see that the EoFaF is back.
    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.

    What is that on Haley's back? It looked like a small love heart with a black dot next to it. The small of your back is an odd place for a tattoo though since you'd never see it without a mirror or two.

    Two things: Durkon says 'E meaning neither she nor he.
    Second: Haley's got a tattoo

    I was wondering if it was a tattoo, or just scratches from the night before...although I suppose scratches would have healed at some point with all the cure lights Durkon was probably throwing around.

    I love it when incidental characters hook up. That was so cute.

    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 think one of the funniest parts was that Durkon's accent allows him to use the perfect pronoun for Varsuvius: 'E. It could be He or She, but if you've got the scottish accent, they sound the same!

    Well done, Rich! I'm glad to know that Roy's body is getting retreived, though I'm surprised Durkon can raise dead.

    Awwww, that was cute...

    And I have to admit, I was wondering about the MoJ before I read this. Guess Belkar's Int and Wis aren't quite so crappy if he could remember it... but then again, maybe he only remembers things that affect HIM in a positive or negative way.

    And Generic NPC 1 and Generic NPC 2 hooking up... priceless.

    "Don't make me use the Fireball on you"... Lol.

    Good work, Rich.

    Oh for cryin' out loud, people. It's a friggin tattoo!

    Everyone else knew it was a tattoo at first sight. Why do people think that it's a cut? It's a heart with an arrow through it.

    Ok, sorry. It's out of my system now.

    And I was honestly hoping we could go a few strips that featured both Haley and Elan without it turning into a make out fest. Cripes, we get it, they're in a relationship. We don't need to be hit over the head with it every time the two share panel space.

    Rules that supersede Rule 0:

    Rule -1: You're all there to have fun. The GM and the players should never do anything that would limit people's fun, for any in-game or real-life reason.

    Rule -0.5 (corollary): That means that if someone's fun is getting in the way of other people's fun, that person needs to change how they're playing.
