    First page reply, and first impressions:

    Elan: "Oh, he's right here (points to Belkar)."
    He must be referring to his feather fall charm, but it's funny that Belkar is annoyed at being referred to... a magical doodad or a squat?

    And yet despite being naive like last strip, Elan is also wise, like telling Roy to work on the "hope" thing.

    If only he was there to tell him that to the elf priestess (whose name I forgot sadly)

    Ah, Roy, bringing hope wherever he goes.

    Well, The Oots has 5 members, so they have an advantage.

    But one of those five is Elan. :p (even if Roy's the one who needs to learn the meaning of "morale")

    I like the role reversal between Roy and Elan. Bandana's in an awkward but non-dangerous situation situation there alright.

    I guess, this settles it once and for all:

    Except two of them are Elan and Belkar, which is kinda a coin flip on the "Helpful" part. Elan doesn't exactly have a good track record when it comes to instilling hope in particular.

    Well, at least I hope not. He's not the most combat useful one, but he does grow on you!

    Elan thinks Bandana is calling Belkar squat (short and stocky).

    Sometimes, I'm not sure as to whether or not Elan is getting smarter.

    Roy's not even going to speculate that Durkula might have made more minions in the meanwhile? I know he broke the staff, but still...

    Does't Elan have a weapon especialy useful vs lawful creatures (like a certain vampire)

    That past experience might be the only reason why he's able to recognize the need for it.

    He's improving!

    In case you're old and need a reminder like me, Roy's magic rock was given to him in OOTS #1024.

    Wow. All Roy needs is to put all of that depressing information into ballad format for it to be a complete and classic Order of the Stick motivational speech (please don't let this turn out the way the battle for Azure City did).

    The stone speaks to the door, which responds.

    This is convenient, and magical.

    Elan with two punchlines in one strip. Haley needs to talk to him about sharing.

    I'm unclear how the vampires can be inside Firmament without a stone when evidently OotS needs one to enter? What have I missed?

    Indeed, Julio's Chaos Sabre from 943 should be pretty useful.
