    The garlic comments are some of the my favorite jokes in the whole comic. Quality humor there.

    Elan actually being diplomatic? Huh, that's some unexpected character development.

    Elan saves the day again! ...but I think "we followed him here so we could beat him up until he's alive again" is the best line.

    Have to admit, I did not expect Elan's garlic to actually come in handy. Got to give it to him there. I love the concern that the acolytes have and how effortlessly Belkar dismisses them.

    Neat strip. Odd that V wasn't shown in the panel everyone enters...

    I'd suspect a stealth trip to spend more time with the fiends, but can't think of a justification for why they'd pick now.

    You know, last thread people were discussing how to cook vampires, with or without garlic and the like. Seems fitting, I guess.

    Now that they have names, they won't die so easily. Right?

    Every panel that door remains open makes me more uneasy. Though, I guess the vampires probably didn't slip through.

    Another new comic, and I just happen to notice before bed.

    Should be interesting to see where this goes... anyone else contemplating the possibility of Home Alone-esque antics against the vampires?

    I always miss it when the OotS members introduce themselves. Now I have to go back through the archives to remember their names again.

    They've got names! That means they have at least 2-3 more comics of learning about their survival!

    BINGO!!! The three dwarves now have names: Their chances for surviving just increased 95% percent over every unnamed NPC we'll soon encounter.

    I love that Elan's garlic breath was what truly convinced the most aggressively suspicious acolyte. And Elan showed true bardic charisma and diplomacy in the process.

    *sniffs* He's growing up so fast.

    EDIT: I like Minrah--the suspicious one. I'm really hoping that her smidgen of greater character development over the other two helps her get out of this confrontation alive.

    I think the fighter guy is named Rick Fuchsiapommel or something. Couldn't tell you the others, though.

    I guess skepticism still runs contrary to logic (such as the runestone having to be WILLINGLY GIVEN TO OTHERS OR ELSE IT BREAKS).

    Also, "introductions happen between pages. Love the meta humor!

    POST EDIT: missed the part about the garlic. Eating a whole bulb really DID pay off. Good on you, Elan!
