    Amazing stuff, the Belkar and Vaarsuvius thing really cracked me up.

    Is it just me or does Belkar seem a bit less hostile then he would normally be? Or is that just nervous tension.

    I wonder what plot twist will come that makes this all even better.

    Poor Belkar, just like Elan as the realization sinks in. At least Haley can still think on her feet!

    Ohhh. That doesn't bode well...

    P.S. Could somebody tell me where I can get custom avatars? I'm kind of looking for something in either the arch-fiend or Rahkshasa department.

    A look of concern and worry on Belkar? That's scary in itself.

    I think Belkar's lust factor towards V is higher than people estimated.

    *sniff*, I didn't know Belkar had that kind of trust for the others, to expect they'd wait for him and Hayley no matter what.

    (why's this comic named 'Broken Stick'?)

    I would think belkar would react in a more, 'looks like we have time for looting now" instead of being in denial about people he hates, I mean roy and V are hated by him, he wants to kill elan, and hinjo imprisoned him

    (why's this comic named 'Broken Stick'?)
    because the Order of the stick is broken up

    Go down to Arts and Crafts, and request one. You might have to ask several times, or you might get lucky on the first try.

    Or you can make one of your own, if you have any artistic skill. There are a couple of guides for getting them "right," and shrinking them down without losing resolution.

    Yeah, I actually felt sorry for Belkar.

    Though even more so for Haley.

    It's called that, because right now the Order of the Stick.. is broken, split.

    Because the Fellowship Order has been Broken.

    At this point, the story is split, with Elan, Vaarsuvius and Durkon going one way, and Haley, Belkar and Roy's body going another. They probably won't be getting back together for a few (dozen) strips.

    Both teams may or may not get another member... I'm bettin g on Hinjo joining Elan's team, and Celia joining Haley's team.

    That's amazing, one second Im looking here, then I decide to check the forums for the heck of it, and next thing I know two new comics are up? Guess I just have the awesome timing.

    On topic-Haley owned her emo personality? Wut?
    If my text is blue, I'm being sarcastic.But you already knew that, right?

    Oh jeez...when I read that title...

    Anyway...I hope this situation doesn't last long, then again, I kinda do. Mostly because I want to see what Rich does with this.

    ...Don't know what to think of Belkar's last line.

    My question is, why doesn't Haley put Roys corpse into one of her bags of holding? A corpse won't suffocate or otherwise become worse for the wear...in fact, if there's limited air, he might decompose slower.

    Because then Belkar might be more than the distance from Roy required to set off the Mark of Justice.

    Belkar decided that they would carry him since he wasn't certain whether the mark of justice would go off or not with Roy in the bag.

    Is it just me, or did that sword increase Haley's attractiveness somehow?
