    And there's the sword-retrieval ability people kept expecting.

    "Pwok?" I don't think we've heard that one before.

    One of the untold perks about being high level is that the B-plots get resolved far more quickly.

    I think this is the first time a round panel was used (the moment where Roy "willed" his sword back).

    Nothing like coming back to the site a week or so since last visiting and not only finding anew comic, but also seeing a second that was posted literally 10 minutes prior.

    Now THAT'S some good timing!

    Wow that unconventional panel was awesome. Kinda figured something like this would happen, now to wonder about details and scratch my head a bit if/when the returning property specifically comes up.

    I don't usually visit the individual comic strip discussion threads, but the title of this one was just so smart that I had to come here and say so.

    And that is from the Weapons of Legacy book in fact as one of the properties that you can get with a weapon. Nice, after all, that sword is their best weapon against those vampires.

    Has Roy really dropped his sword that many times? The only two significant times I can remember Roy losing his weapon are when it got shattered by Xykon and when he deliberately gave it to Haley against Redcloak's big Elemental. I mean, if anyone's got a weapon problem it's Elan. I believe he's on his fourth sword right now.

    "Never mind, I'm good." Has to be the shock speaking, no one is that composed.
    Join the Cult of and get your ceremonial pair of daggers. Franchise opportunities still available so call now.

    : It would have been a hilarious anticlimax - plus, you know, murder. Which is always a nice perk.

    Apparently my 3.5-fu isn't what it once was. That the sword was able to return to Roy's hand after having fallen to the mountain pass is more in keeping with a called weapon than a returning one. Then again, OotS has always played fast and loose with the rules...
