    Cool greeny glow effect

    hmmm. I always thought that sabrine and nale had a rather false relationship, but Sabrine seems to really have a vested interest in Nale. Neat.

    Good banter jokes. I didnt LOL, but i chuckled quite a bit.

    My colors are Blue/Green. I value versitality, knowledge, evolution, and the nautral world. I have a deep fascination with living things, and a natural talent for adaptation. At my best, I am intuitive and adaptive. At my worst, I am isolated and unsympathetic. My symbol is the twisted tree, and my enemy is Red/Black.

    Nice. I enjoy fights with actual banter. Too few of those in my games, too much is just, "Die, evil fiend!" and the like.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to be so negative. This will work very nicely in the next book as a strip that connects things together.

    I'll just wait for the next strip...

    I wouldn't let Haley know about that. Becuase it was essitinally getting all the gold from the Dragons nest that brought on the gold being exploded and Haley losing her voice. Plus the fact that would have met Miko past the inn, and Haley would have all her Durkon's Dungeon treasure also.

    ...Sabines gonna get it methinks.

    Funny stuff though

    The "I don't know, but it sure was cool" thing reminds me of that old cartoon Gargoyles. Anyone see that?

    There was a scene where a woman who didn't know she was a Princess of Avalon blasted her mother (also unknown to her) with her innate magic, and her mother asked "How did you do that?" To which she replied "I don't know... but I'm trying to do it again."

    ...it was a lot cooler on screen. My rendition here doesn't do it justice whatsoever.

    Wow, that was some excellent fight-banter.

    Plus I read the penultimate frame as a Nethack reference. I don't know if Rich meant to refer to Nethack, but altars and sacrifices are cool.

    Sabine reminds me of Aubrey from S*P in that last panel.

    It's just so funny.... and I think they'd get 12.

    What about Celia? Or are you saying you think Nothing Happened there? As I recall, the Giant confirmed that Something did.

    I'm willing to accept (for anyone who prefers it that way) that Celia was Roy's only hmm, liaison, and likewise if anyone thinks he obviously would have had relationships before, I can go with that too.

    But I don't think it's possible to assume Nothing happened with him and Celia when (as I said above) I remember the Giant saying otherwise.

    personnaly, I would vote for Roy having hte 9 month heart. I've been studying the Romance novel in my college wrriting class, and the heroes are always supposed to have "previous sexual experience".

    I'll bring up something that no one else has brought up the SWORD and it's effect :P

    Clearly the effect is from breaking the 4th wall.........or being angry.

    I vote the first one ;)
