    I think Belkar may be the new generation of action hero...

    Oooh - Belkar gone Wild!

    This will not bode well for the rest of the Order when they go before the big bosses though...

    But you've got to admit, Belkar's got style!

    Cake anyone?

    Belkar, <sniff sniff> I think I love you. "It's like my birthday..."

    Seriously, Giant. Knocked it out of the ballpark. Hmm...perhaps Belkar action dolls?

    I am so glad one of my players doesn't read OOTS. He would want to put a ring of growth where Belkar hid his ring. Oy.

    But i thought Belkar was Chaotic GOOD???? (just kidding, he's as evil as a pop quiz on the first day of school, and I love him for it ;) )
    I gave up fighting, and stabbing and bludgeoning and stealing and bar-brawls and wenches . . . and it was the worst 10 rounds of my life - Jerry the Country & Western Bard.

    I have just two questions.

    1) Where did Belkar conceal his ring?

    2) Would a person really want to wear a ring that was concealed where I think Belkar had it?

    Belkar's murderous expression always cracks me up. And the dialogue was such that I didn't have to scroll down past the first row to know who was in the hole...

    No brownie points for figuring out who Belkar's favoured enemy for +6 or so is.

    Default Re: OOTS #261 - The Discussion Thread down hi

    Well what I think happened that probably the guards did find the ring, since there are so many ways at doing it, but Belkar was be deseptive and continued to talk the guard, making the guard get closer and closer, then Belkar jumps up and does an amazing bullrush, disarm, Coup-de-Cour. We all know he has maxxed ranks in jump, and probably has the correct feats, so he can "rain down 'his' enemies, and reach stuff on top shelf"

    Comedic value of the strip aside, for the first time I am now really worried for the OOTS. Before, they had a shot at being seen as innocent or at least not worthy of execution due to the circumstances leading up to the activation of the gate.

    One of their members has killed a guard now, though, and is about to go on a killing spree.

    I am really on edge now to see how the OOTS gets out of this. No idea what's going to happen next.

    Good job, Giant!

    Belkar is the man!

    This may make things more complicated, but I think he has every right to break free with lethal force. He's held captive for a crime he didn't do(yeah, he's so evil Satan would crap in his pants, but thats not the point), in a lightless pit in the ground... I see nothing wrong with that(except he enjoys it big time)

    Giggled all the way through as soon as I saw the first panel and realized who's comic it was.

    Half of me thinks OoTS should just kill Belkar themselves to save time... but what fun would the world be without Belkar?

    Ah, I'd been looking for some horribly offensive ways to sneak out of the occasional dinner. Cheers Rich. :)

    "Congratulations. I suppose you want XP for that?" was definitely my favourite line there. Who needs roleplay XP when apparently just being in the service industry gets you all you ever need?
