    Considering Princess Bride was on BRAVO when I saw this and I was drinking water at the time, it was "you owe me a keyboard" funny!

    --->Thanks!

    That was pretty awesome. I love the Princess Bride reference and also the poem that Belkar ripped off in the first panel. Good stuff. You can always count on Elan to let the bad guys know stuff that he shouldn't. ;D

    The bluff song annoys me. I can never write anything worthwhile on the spot like that, so I can completely imagine myself making a bard that dumb. Hence why it annoys me.

    When I first saw another kobold, I was a little dissapointed. However, I have to admit that we did get a druid, something predicted months ago. everyone was saying that belkar's opposite would be a monk or a cold,efficient sniper ranger. So the giant naturaly did something wacky. I only hope that this kobold swashbuckler is more than a one-note, one-time throwaway joke. I like the princess bride as much as anyone else, dont get me wrong.
    Im just saying that pompey and leeky both had awesome intros, particularly leeky. Yokyok's was...meh. funny, yes, but it doesnt seem like actual plot advancement, more like a throwaway joke.
    Anyway, I trust rich to make good descisions with this plotline, and who knows, i may come to like Yokyok as much as I like Leeky and Pompey, once I see more of him. i refrian from passing judgement, as it it would be unfair to do so, and its really not my place to do so anyway.

    As for the actual humor content of the comic:

    lol :D
    Great stuff. Im not a particular fan of elan-humor, and even I like this one.


    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.

    Honestly, I was hoping that one of the dangling threads would get attention rather than a new thread getting spawned.

    That said, Princess Bride is one of my favourite movies of all time, so I can wait a little longer on the rest of it. But really, what happened to the cardinal D&D rule of 'Don't split up the party'? I would have thought that Roy's had it backfire on him enough times by now that he would stop doing it.

    Roy may have a keen tactical mind, but he lacks three thing things, One, trust in the party if they are in weapons range, trust in the party if they are outside of weapons range, and humility to have backup, insted of wlking in to confront the bad guy himself.

    Well a slightly disappointing enemy but a funny comic overall.

    YES, Princess Bride has always been one of my favorite movies since I was a little kid.

    *sigh*, maybe it was expecting too much that Elan would learn from his mistakes in comic #4

    As predicted, the Curse comes to bite Belkar where it hurts the most. ;D

    Poor Belkar

    I wonder if he'll have to run outside town limits, or be forced to fight in an un-lethal manner (and lose).

    Either way, Elan is now on his own. Tragic really, since he could have had a nice foil-duel with the Kobold :) Of course Elan wouldn't interfere in a legitimate duel like that... or something. His bardic sensibilities are getting in the way, I guess.

    This is now officially the greatest OOTS strip of ALL TIME. I sat there, mouth agape as I saw Yokyok say "You killed my father, prepare to die" for at least 2 minutes.

    Giant, in my eyes, you are a bijallion times better than that stupid sliced bread idea.
