    Just one rhetorical question: Why in the world did they keep walking? :P

    EDIT: Damn you, Tribble! That's it, I'm lobbying the Tzenkethi government to side with the Klingons. :P

    That was alright. Not quite as funny as the last one, but...

    Leave it to Elan to point out the stupidity of others!

    Heh, I'm pretty impressed that Elan was the one who did the "counting" thing. I wonder if the conversation's going to go the same way it went before...probably not, for comedic effect, and since he won't remember the specific wording or the Oracle's hinting (in all likelihood) he'll probably just be like "oh, whatever elan~"

    That said: Wah wah waaaaaaaah.

    Be bold, and powerful forces will come to your aid.

    This elicited a chuckle. Two, actually.

    And it made me make this post. Must've been a pretty good comic, I guess.

    And I was hoping Roy worded the question that way because he had already assumed Azure City was the next logical target and wanted to know which one was NEXT on Xykon's list.

    Oops. Roy didn't strike me as a blonde, you know.

    That's right - George R. R. Martin; a writer so ruthless, his name is a verb akin to Samuel L. Jackson. Valar morghulis.

    Well, Roy did outsmart himself this time. And Elan actually caught him on that. :o

    And now, the heroes move on towards their own destination while the army of evil advances on. Wonder if Miko gets to be the one to get the OotS? That would be most interesting. ;)

    I'm hoping Durkon will remind everyone exactly what they'd been talking about in the next strip and respond to all the wondering stares with "What? I made my will save"

    Oh, dang! That's all I can say...

    But hey... if they remember the answers, do they still remember the questions? Seems to me that Elan's observation is equally valid even if they don't remember anything other than the questions or answers.

    Woah... 2nd page. I've never done that before!

    Perhaps the conversation will progress exactly the same way again, allowing Elan to once more remind Roy?

    Probably not.

    Awesome! Roy being done in by his own WIS - I know there was a reason why normal fighters usually use it as a dump stat, too much of it and it starts creating problems.

    Oh, and the next time we see Miko? A very undead ex-paladin. Mwahaha!

    Heh, congratz to the Giant for this little twist. Didn't see it coming.

    That's what I appreciate, no matter what gets predicted on the forums, I find myself still surprised most of the time.

    The story gets more complicated the longer it stretches, I'm definately curious what will happen in the coming 10 weeks.

    Wouldn't it be interesting if Miko ended up Offing Xykon and being wholly anticlimactic? But then... REDCLOAK the Destroyer!

    AAAUGH!!! So close! I don't suppose Roy, Elan, or anyone else will think to bring up Azure City again as a possible target until it's far too late..... Oh, torture!

    Wow. Stuff like that is what makes most players pull their hair out and kill their DM. Possibly with their hair.

    Yeah, I think the bit where Roy says, "That's what the little orange runt was hinting at the whole time," means that he only made the connection due to the fact that he remembered the Oracle trying to get him to alter the wording of his question. Now that he's been hit with the memory loss, he will only remember the question and answer, and is more likely to dismiss Elan's comment about there being three gates as irrelevent.

    Oh, and nice comic. :)
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.
