    That could've gone worse, I suppose.

    Pow! Now that's a way for an update.
    (Sure hope it didn't end with Elan cutting a vital rope.)

    Initially I thought it as some classic blunder made by Elan that would cause yet another problem. Then I remembered what ship it is.

    Elan was helpful in combat without telling an awful pun? It really IS the end of the world.

    Nice to see how far he's come.

    Given that this is Julio's ship, Elan is probably right.
    “Evil is evil. Lesser, greater, middling, it's all the same. Proportions are negotiated, boundaries blurred. I'm not a pious hermit, I haven't done only good in my life. But if I'm to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all.”

    So I beg for forgiveness, patience and comprehension.

    Hi-three.
    Because using your touch spells normally is too boring for a swordman as dashing as you are.

    Is it supposed to be "Hi There"? I don't understand.

    EDIT: oh, instead of "high Five", ok. Cuz three fingers. I think the word "high" instead of "hi" would have helped a little.

    I didn't really expect Elan to succeed in healing Roy while swinging in a rope with only his feet, when it took 11 Mendings to fix the balloon. Then I realized that, since it would be awesome, Elan's chance of succeeding was quite high, being a Bard/Dashing Swordsman and all.

    The hi-three was the icing on the cake.

    Hi-three! How delightful

    Elan is getting better and better at playing to his strengths, which are, as it turns out, substantial... (including, apparently, being so dashing as to conjure a rapier out of thin air...)

    High-three.

    Never change, Elan. Never change. Sometimes it is better to be lucky and heroic than smart.

    The scouring of the Shire never happened. That's right. After reading books I, II, and III, I stopped reading when the One Ring was thrown into Mount Doom. The story ends there. Nothing worthwhile happened afterwards. Middle-Earth was saved.

    So the entire sequence was just a set up so Roy could punch the giant in the face?

    He does on the last panel. He had to deal with a charging giantess first.

    Yep, that's a dashing swordsman on the Mechane, OF COURSE the ropes are there to cut and swing on.

    They may serve some other (secondary) purpose, but cutting a rope to swing on is probably the primary purpose when all's said and done. They need to be able to arrive in the nick of time and swing into the dentist's office or whatever.
