    Nice to know I wasn't the only one who couldn't keep up with those conditions.
    Cuthalion's art is the prettiest art of all the art. Like my avatar.

    Dazzling comic, as always.

    Or perhaps stunning?

    Glad to see Elan could finish his task, I knew he had it in him! Isn't there a thread already devoted to what the different art effects on the characters mean?
    So I said to myself "SELF, if I were you, and I think I am, I would be beside myself in embarrassment, so slap myself silly."

    Truly, a face so wonderful has never been seen before by human eyes (assuming that the "Haley is half-celestial" theory is still considered valid).

    I vote for some sort of sword implant for Roy. Or at least one of those swords that can be summoned to his side magically. Heck, maybe that will happen during this fight, and he'll win it by calling the Greenhilt sword to him.

    Meanwhile, perhaps Elan can actually, like, help in the fight.

    So, it's been 11 turns since Elan has been up here. Mmmh, more than I expected.

    Does it means we could speculate the health of that Frost Giant who died?

    W00t new comic! Thanks Mr. Burlew! (Live, forums, live again!)

    Not really, the cutlass is still right there next to him on the deck before it cuts back to Elan. And presumably Elan is about to descend back to the deck and help Roy duel the remaining frost giant fighter/barbarian/etc. ... hey, maybe Elan will end up dual-wielding the cutlass and his Chaos Sabre? That would be badass.

    I find myself wondering if the frost giant woman or her dead cohort(s) could be a paladin of Thrym. Can Thrym even have those? Or is it just simpler to assume that the whole trio are all fighters or barbarians?

    Go Elan! Save the world!

    And buy a thesaurus next time you're in town. You've a bard, dammit. Words are supposed to be your thing. "Swoopy star conditions" is insufficiently poetic.

    Heroism takes many forms; today, it took the form of "Psst. Hey buddy, take it".

    EDIT: If Roy gets back on his feat with Elan at his side will Giantess surrender ... unconditionally?

    Also, I hereby call upon Mr. Burlew to give the woman a name. She is truly numbered among the badass, and even in death should be remembered with honor.

    But revealing her name would make her two or three time tougher.

    To be fair at 11 tries it seems likely he failed a few just from being on a rope in the air. Well unless Andi was doing all kind of crazy maneuvers out of sight.

    At least Roy has an excuse for losing his sword this time. He must be stunned, which forces you to drop held weapons.

    The situation hasn't improved dramatically with the mending but the game-y humor gave me a breather, for some reason.
