    Ooh, WoD reference by Haley? Has she been seeing other games?

    Nice comic, Rich!

    Belkar has ranks in Survival?

    Mind you, with the Monster in the Dark, we may be due for more zany comedy.

    He always has been, he just needs motivation and to find the source before his ADHD kicks in and he forgets that he's tracking something.

    Interesting that I didn't see ANY theories about Roy. Nice play, Rich.

    Oh Giant, once again you completely throw away all the crazed conspiracy theories with an excellent touch and slight but possibly expected twist. Excellent work.

    This is disturbing on so many levels that I hardly know where to begin... I love it.
    As others have pointed out, I just love it how Rich manages to pull something unexpected on us. Sure we have rough ideas how things may look, but it's always a surprise.

    Wow, Haley and Belkar had better be ready to do some fast talking now that the MitD has Roy as a tea party guest. Maybe they can get both Roy and O'Chul to safety by telling MitD that they were sent by Xykon to tell him to go into the city...

    Nice catch.

    Is the Shadow a reference to the Shadow, or some other Shadow, or the Pistol Wraith of Iron Kingdoms, or..?

    Ædit: Ah, so it was the Shadow.

    Who knows what stupidity lurks in the heart of men?

    Ooh! I know, Roy, I know! Cue the ShadowRoy fanclub!

    Yeah, Attilargh, that sounds like The Shadow to me.

    ...oh, almost left the "n" off of "men". That would have been unfortunate.

    Anyway, this should be an interesting outcome. Eep.

    "your gentlemen" should be "you gentlemen", and shouldn't it be d12s and not d10s? Otherwise, funny strip, as always.

    Xykon's Best Protagonist Deaths video is certainly shaping up to be the greatest ever, I'd say. I wonder if Teevo managed to capture Belkar and Haley's terrified reaction shots.
