    Love the zombie in the second panel, for some reason I just found the "brains" hilarious this time.

    Well that was unexpected. Right before I left for work, too. I think I have just enough time to read it.

    Edit: Hmmm. The arrows in the penultimate panel. Where'd they go in the last one?

    That was hysterical, although I do have to admit I feel a little bad that they left Lien on a Shark behind. What's up with that?

    It's gonna be great seeing how Haley and Belkar get out of there now.

    "Um....guys"

    edit: Lien can swim to the ship and back, I don't see how it's a problem of them leaving her.

    Don't feel too sorry for Lein, she can always have her shark swim them out to the boat. Although that was rather nasty of the captain not to tell her.

    Sorry to be nitpicky, but is the arrow in the penultimate comic something that was fired by the archers to the left and missed? It's not sticking out of the boat in the last pannel, and there's no indication of where it came from. Meaningless detail, but the perfectionist in me had to point that out. Anyways, Great comic today!

    The Captain should have at least waited for Lien to return, that was a foolish sacrifice of a Paladin with at least a few levels under her belt.

    I can see Haley and Belkar coming to the docks and finding Redcloak and a goblin army instead of the ship

    I wonder if Lien would wait for them or run after the ship.

    eek Re: OOTS #481 - The Discussion Thread

    Oh no! Lien, catch up with the ship.

    I wonder how long it will be before Elan will start to think that Nale was killed in the explosion in the castle? As far as I can tell, none of the OotS saw the three escape.

    Haley and Belkar are not going to be happy.

    Perhaps the crowd at the pier will disperse now that the junk is gone and Lien can carry them to the ship on the shark.

    Good comic!

    Anyway, I just hope that all of them will be able to find their way back.
    I'm VERY busy due to real life and whatnot, so I'm taking a break from all WWs and SGs. I should have warned y'all beforehand, and I apologize if I've inconvenienced any of you due to my many autolynches. I really should have stated how busy my life is.

    Oh dear. At least the Capt. finally was able to do what he's been trying to do for a couple of hours now.

    Lien can get back to the ship fine with Razor. Haley and Belkar and Roy... may have a tougher time.

    Nice comic, Giant. Way to make Elan go from "useful" to "clueless" in, oh, about two panels!

    Oh, and if Cure Moderate is the best that Durkon can cast on Hinjo, then yeah, he's pretty depleted.

    Lien doesn't seem to be making any effort to follow the ship. Perhaps she's decided to wait for Hayley, Belkar, Roy and O'Chul (She doesn't know yet O'CHul is still with the MitD) to give them a lift out to the ship. After all, she's proven to Redcloak that she can beat anything he can summon to throw at her so staying in the water nearby isn't dangerous to her.

    I think that's more of an Erfworld-like joke: as long as there was a lien on the ship, they couldn't take it out of port...
