    Is your teenaged sister in fact a hottie?
    ;D
    gotta love V's reaction.
    the only downside is that it might bring that discussion up again....

    Hmm... I'm beginning to think that V's theory may in fact be correct.

    WOOT!! first page!

    Fantastic comic, it seems the most ofour predictions came true in the end. Cool twist with the Julia/Belkster thing, didn't see that coming.
    An overall great comic, worth waiting for.

    Keep the classy quotes coming at this rate, and you will see a rapid increase in the demand for new OotS quote T-shirts.

    I also like that Elan is as willing to get the drink of water for Roy as call out for it.

    I just realized that I enjoy the comic's dialogue as much or more than the plot. I'm probably coming to that realization a bit behind schedule, but whatever. I'm glad to know that I can enjoy the strips regardless of how much they advance the plot line.

    Uh, I hope it's not bad form to post twice within a few minutes, but for my money, the "glass of water" line is the best. It took me until the second reading to notice the reference to two strips back. The Giant really does a great job at capturing, and commenting on, Nale's naivete.

    I am surprised Roy didn't even consider handing over Elan. I mean, he knows the team won't go along with it, but that would be a double bonus for him - get his sister back and get rid of his least favorite bard.

    Belkar seeming to be the voice of reason definately confused me, until I saw his idea of tactics. ;D

    I'm waiting to see how long it will take before someone asks what fugly means, because as far as I know that's pretty much a north american term ;D
    Why is abbreviation such a long word?

    I like the fact that after so many bad experiences, failed missions, and wierd encounters Roy can still say something like "It'll take an hour, tops". LOL.

    I think Roy's urge to save his sister is clouding his reason.

    On the other hand, the Giant is proving wrong those posters who argued that an evil character cannot possibly work within a good group. As long as the objective includes hotties, smoking or otherwise, Belkar can be made to play nice (at least until his attention span is exceeded).

    Just think of the hotties as the carrot and Roy's mental command word as the stick. See, no problem at all!!

    edit: stop saying LOL, what the hell is wrong with you? I mean me.

    I think Roy's come a long way since abandoning Elan to the bandits. Elan still aggravates him, but I think deep down he'd be sad to see him go. Otherwise he would have told him off after Elan asked for water, not waiting through multiple interruptions.

    Well, he's smart enough to know what Nale would do to Elan if Roy complied, plus I think he has learned his lesson from the Bandit Scenario.
