    Absolutely magic!

    Hypothetical offspring of Cruella and Sauron - ho yuss!

    Glad that Roy managed to justify that, and in a bizarre sort of way, I'm glad the graph bears him out, too...

    Good for you, old chap!

    Haha! Perfect arguement that Roy made there. His speech about belkar and how he contains him is exactly what keeps Roy as a LG Person: Constraining an Evil and directing it to a greater good.

    On another note, Hypothetical Offspring of Cruella De Ville and Sauron? AWESOME!

    Kilonazis!?!? That's funny, I don't care who you are.

    Yay comic is up!
    I don't want to imagine how Belkar can get that much worse!
    I was expecting also to see a jump up when he tried (well I guess he succeeded in the end!) for Miko to lose her Paladin status.
    Looks like Roy dogged the big one - I suspect that he'd go to the NG side of LG.

    I'm finding it hard to imagine what the offspring of Cruella de Ville and Sauron might be.

    An awesome comic, nonetheless.

    Kilonazis...bwhahahah classic.

    And finally Belkar is clearly stated to be chaotic evil within the comic (not just by rich in a post). Hopefully that will shut some people up. =D But I doubt it.

    Okay, this is totally weird.

    Anyway I think that Belkar wouldn't be content that all what he's doing is recorded. He's chaotic after all.

    Very nice indeed. I thought Roy defends his position rather well. Perhaps some of Celia's lawyer-ing has rubber off?

    Kilonazis. That is so freakin' brilliant!

    I'm so using that as my official evil measurement from now on!

    Why do I get the feeeling somebody is going to be creating a conversion for Detect Evil to express the results in Kilonazis...



    Edit: Hey did anyone notiice Belkar's observed results are creeping alwfully close to 0 Kilonazis? What does that mean? Is he *gasp* potentially creeping to neutral?!

    Yeah, I have got to agree. If all I saw this morning was that graph, I'd still be laughing just as hard.

    Excellent issue, as always, both in comedy and in character exploration. But I had to give a special thumbs-up for introducing the "kilonazi", the best metric for evilness I've ever seen!

    Indeed - it is telling that, even after it has been discussed to death on the forums - Giant can take the "keeping Belkar under control" arguement and still make it hilarious.

    And one of the most interesting ideas for a baseline I've seen...

    Heh, that was hilarious! Kilonazis for the win!

    Yes, it definitely is good and reassuring that the archon is able to listen to reason, unlike other supposed virtues of Law and Good.

    With everything that was talked about he dodged that one pretty easy. I was expecting much more flashbacks with cool things about Belkar, specially related to Miko. The kilonazis and Cruela/Sauron offspring jokes were hilarious!!!! I laughed for about half an hour!!!! Good comic, but, what do you think it will happen now? Will they come to the oath issue? And the rest of the order? And what is happening down in azure city that he graphic shows Belkar behaving so badly? I mean, it´s only the end of the battle, and since then he only throw that paladin back to our beloved umbrella monster. Something must have happened down there. What do you think? I think that Death's Li'l helper is having his way.

    Editing:
    Yes, it definitely is good and reassuring that the archon is able to listen to reason, unlike other supposed virtues of Law and Good.
    Yeah, thats true too!!!!

    Though, the best joke is probably the:

    or looks like they might possibly be thinking of getting anywhere sort of near his way at some unspecified future point
    That one did it for me!

    Though, don't you think that for forces of good, the examiner didn't seemed to care if Roy`s actually in a good mission, beyond the point that he was actually trying to save the world? I mean, he even said that he was doing it for reasons beyond his oath while he was still alive. Nevertheless, it could be implied by the accepting of his redirection of for a greater good.

    Well, finally I finished, both, writing and editing!!!

    Huh. Not so happy about the kilonazis. OK, so poor wall #4 has taken a severe and funny beating this strip, but I'm somewhat tired of the evil equals nazis thing. Must be those hundreds of more or even more awful movies with cliche nazi Germans. I am German, and though I despise the nazi kind of thinking, it really gets tiring at some point.

    Probably just my problem. OTOH, the Sauron/C.d.V.-offspring... *chuckle*

    I think that the Sauron and Cruella child will be messed up...
    I mean, one parent wants to rule the world, the other wants a decent coat.
