    I love the twist at the end! I could kinda see it coming but not exactly in the way it came.

    Roy pulling Pompey by the hair? Priceless.

    7/10.

    edit: I'm sure you're fixing it, but I had to enter the comic number manually to get it.

    And Pompey survives another day. Think he'll be able to buff Sabine back up?

    What, nobody else noticed that Sabine shifted to become the knight? Note the eyes, people.

    First page and it's my first time posting ;D. And as to why Pompey is smiling, I'm pretty sure that's Sabine escorting him off.

    Sigh. Sorry about the minor delay; due to the number of people who have come to expect an OOTS just before midnight who keep refreshing, the server is running the update script VERY slowly. So the more people waiting for the strip, the longer it takes for it to get here.

    Good plot development. I had to reread it to figure out what was happening.

    Well, looks like our friend LG is going to escape once more. I think Roy's thought of Nale's plan going completely wrong is not the case. Nale doesn't really care what happens to the rest of his lackey's as long as he gets what he wants so besides keeping the OotS busy he doesn't care about the rest of the outcome.

    Edit: First page.. Nice.

    I was kind of getting bored with the comic, until I saw that last panel. That certainly can't be good. And I also liked how Pompey kept saying he was a lackey.

    That's how I found it by total accident.

    Pompey's speech bubble is misaligned.

    Anyway, I am not sure I like this plot twist. Not that I think the badguys should lose, but it robs the transistory element from the comic, which was the element I thought was being set up. Basically...the comic seems incongruous and choppy to me.

    Just a personal thought.

    Oh, afterthought, it was very funny. I shouldn't put so much criticism when the jokes were funny.

    Well, now we know where Sabine went... Still awfully curious about Nale/Thog/Elan developements though...

    Heh. Amusing. Pompey is the total low man on the totem pole.

    Also you silly people were thinking that Sabine was out for this fight. Tsk tsk tsk.

    I'm pretty sure that he just charmed the guard that was supposed to take him to jail. I really don't think thats Sabine, not sure where she got off to, I would imagine its hard to hide a half naked women in the middle of a city like that.

    Hmmm, interesting twist. I didn't see that coming.

    One criticism of the strip that I've sometimes had is the way characters don't use their abilities to their fullest often. Most obvious example: Durkon had plenty of good opportunities to use Thor's Might in between the two times we've seen it used. Same problem with other spellcasters, especially Elan. And I'm not sure we've ever seen Thog (or Belkar) Rage, technically.

    I like how, by contrast, Sabine doesn't seem to hesitate at all to use her apparent "Disguise Self at will" power.

    I'm surprised Roy so easily believed that he wasn't going to get anymore info out of Pompey.

    I like how Pompey apparently recognizes his boss just by her whistling, and knows he's gotten off scot-free.

    I don't like Julia's attitude, as always, but it would have been awfully out-of-character for her to start treating Roy with respect now, just because he beat Sabine and she's learned a bit of respect for Durkon.

    The Chief is really starting to grow on me. With the "head on a pike" comment. :)

    The way the police keep getting repeated reports of the makeup of the Guild makes me worry ... it's kind of a strengthening of earlier foreshadowing. I won't say what foreshadowing here (Spoiler), but it's what a bunch of people were speculating about after the comic where Thog knocked out Elan.

    Also of note:

    I have a number of ongoing projects that I manically jump between to spend my free time ... so don't be surprised when I post a lot about something for a few days, then burn out and abandon it.
