    Oh! I can explain this one! See, the weight of the displaced air is equal to the buoyancy force, so-

    Uh-

    Well, I mean, great comic, Giant!

    Ah, it's nice to have Elan being Elan after the weightiness of Eugene's presence.

    I must concur, the falling rocs sign was spot on.

    I imagine the Giant's readers from the Elemental Plane of Air laugh at the "falling rocks" sign.

    Did Roy actually think he could have a Kinematics discussion with Elan? I mean really, Elan?

    You'd think Roy would know better by now.
    "When will I ever stop telling stories? Well, you see..."

    That's what loyal teammates do for each other, isn't it? You know, when they're not busy getting new haircuts.

    Roy, stop trying. Even if you didn't have that splash page, you couldn't shove "Science!!" (Well, physics) into Elan's head, it's too filled with puppets.

    Agreed that the "Falling Rocks; Falling Rocs" gag was priceless! I literally snorted from trying not to laugh too loudly at work.

    Ah, at last a discussion were physics is not told to stand in the corner.

    That was certainly more uplifting than the last few pages.

    Another example of something being needlessly complicated (like Nale's classes as opposed to being a bard). Just magic the boat, it's easier.

    OK. I just have to ask because that "Falling Rocs" pun was fabulous. The high point of my morning, even.

    Rich, did you think of that just recently, or have you been waiting to use it for a long time?

    But don't rocs tend to fly rather than fall?

    And if the hull is enchanted, then it is a magical airship, isn't it?

    Art triumphs over science?! What would Vaarsuvius say? ...maybe we should add that to the alignment system, so Elan is Chaotic Artistic Good, and Roy is Lawful Scientific Good?

    I loved the falling rocks/rocs signs. I also liked the callback to the first dungeon, and the original plan to endlessly wander around in it. Before you came up with the whole "Rifts" thing.

    Great comic! I really enjoyed it!

    Ah, yes, a dash of steampunk makes any fantasy story...um...steampunk-ier.
    I wonder what the relative cost efficiencies of using mundane helium versus magical levitation are. Also the engineering benefits and problems posed by each. But this probably isn't the best comic to speculate on that with.

    There are three kinds of intelligence: one kind understands things for itself, the other appreciates what others can understand, the third understands neither for itself nor through others. This first kind is excellent, the second good, and the third kind useless.

    Well that settles that "debate".
