    Hehehe... It's good to see Roy with the sword at his back again.

    And transcribing the accent... priceless.

    OK, that was really funny, but the view of the letter was the best part. It almost made the punchline redundant, but it's still great.

    This is why Durkon's my favorite.

    This comic leaves one question. Why was he kicked out in the first place? I probably missed that story. :(

    Liked the letter written with the accent, though.

    Oh, and first page I guess.

    One of my friends is from Texas, and she's the same way when it comes to accents:
    A) she doesn't have one, everyone else does
    and
    B) she even write "y'all" in her emails

    While buying the book is a Good Idea (TM), you shouldn't have to in order to enjoy the comic. If it is related to the online story, it will be revealed online. Since it is an important part of the storyline, his reason for being kicked out will come out. You just have to RAFO. Or buy the book if you are impatient.

    I did enjoy seeing the panel that was in OoPCs in the webcomic, though.

    It is important to realize that even Durkon doesn't know WHY he was kicked out. Remember, he told Hilgya in OOTS #84 that he was told to travel in human lands until called for by the High Priest. This strip further reveals that he was "asked" rather forcefully, and that it has been close to 28 years since he last stepped foot in dwarven territory. Other than that, you guys pretty much know everything he knows.

    So yeah, when it matters, the reasons will be discussed in the comic, just as the events are being shown here. Don't expect it soon, though.

    What with the humorous and wonderful things about the comic having already been expressed in this thread, let me move onto the dark forbidden fruit that is speculation:

    SPOILER: This comic suggests to me that Durkon's family may not even know that he's alive. High priests might have told them he was dead, for fear they'd try contacting him and/or bringing him home if they knew the truth. Oh, well. There was no way that this wasn't going to end in disaster for the dwarfen people; I think that's been pretty clear from the beginning.

    So "Praise tha High Priest o' Thor" is more appropriate than "O Mighty High Priest of Thor"...
    Is it because of the o' or because of the Praise?

    Ha! The many madcap misfortunes of our favorite Dwarven Cleric.

    So, I guess that leaves V to the xerox or fantasy equivalent.

    Good stuff as always. You know you've got a good one when the Giant has to descend from upon high to explain it.

    Cheers.

    awww... just read the comic an hour or so after it came out hoping to be on page 1 but there's already 2 pages by the time I got here... :'(

    oh well. I was actually hoping Roy would have some reaction to Durkon's story, but it seems it just kind of rolled off his back.

    Hmm... 28 years. I was trying to reconcile that with the numbers from OtOoPCs, but then I realized this. I don't think the OOTS has been together for 11 years, but I could be wrong, as a lot of time could have passed between comics 120 and 200.

    Edit: No wait, Haley is still 24 when fighting Samantha, so Durkon's math is definitely suspect. But when you live as long as a dwarf, what's a decade here or there.
