    Lean in, sister, indeed! I suddenly have the urge to hope that she somehow makes it out of this...

    Sure Belkar, but their dislike for you outweights that so much they leave Haley behind just because of your proximity.

    "Lean in, sister!". Hilarious, and nice segue to Haley.

    It appears that sexism is rampant among Frost Giants. Who could have guessed?

    So the trio finding the ship will probably including finding Roy's sword, preventing a long sub-plot search for it. The question is, who is going to defeat angry Frost Giant woman? Will Elan charm her?

    Wow! I've never had such perfect timing before! So, even among frost giants, women are pressured to not be superior to men. Sad that this is still a thing in our society.

    [QUOTE=Giggling Ghast;21811007]Tiny, inconsequential, please-don't-make-this-a-huge-argument nitpick: Ship Abandoned would have been a better title.

    I disagree. Ship Abandoned makes me think Haley & co. abandoned the ship instead of the other way around.

    1. As a golfer, I am only mildly disappointed that she did not yell "Fore" just prior to impact in panel 2.
    2. Disappointment: no witty comeback from Haley when Belkar pokes her about Elan being her pet.
    3. Last panel: enjoyed the Belkar Punchline.
    4. Art: lovin' it.
    5. Last point: All they have to do is CLIMB and they will find the ship. There is no "10,000foot altitude limit" on the fly spell, right?

    Roy sure is taking a lot of damage. I wonder if V would try and locate his sword as a way of finding him? Then again hilarity will ensue.

    Haley's got as quick a wit and as sharp a tongue as Belkar, and a response about what Belkar and his pets do behind closed doors might have been a nice riposte ...

    (Actually, she's got a quicker wit and a higher Int score ... if Geekery threads are to be believed).

    Even if it would, why wait for global annihilation? There's a world right there that could benefit from more gender equality.

    Disagreed! That would spoil the play on "Abandon ship", and I love the use of "abandon" as a noun.

    Whew! I was sure the title meant the end of the Mechane!

    It's hard to tell whether Belkar's concern for the fate of all the humans is due a possible lack of human faces to stab...

    Thanks, Giant!

    Such exciting tension! Poor caster-giants seem to have met their end at Haley and V's hands. One can only hope V didn't burn too many resources, and that they can find the ship quickly.
    I don't think it will go well for Roy while he's weaponless. He could use his environment to beat Thog, but pulling that trick here could be a no-sail.
    Loving the pace, feels well balanced and thrilling. Go Giant! (but not the giants)

    I don't know if I should feel sad for Belkar or Roy.
    The one does not feel like stabbing anyone right now, the other is not able to...

    By the time they fly up and find the ship, Belkar will doubtless be in stabby mood again. His refresh rate is pretty tight.

    That's a good reference from the Frost Giant. And I'd be amused and pretty happy if V actually has one of her myriad locator spells prepared (you know, from back on the ocean voyage) and can get them to the ship.

    Yeah, but he's faking character growth, for instance he never did kill Crystal.
