    Hooray for lack of pepper!
    I loved the expression on Belkar's face when he climbed out.

    Oh, and so as to uphold tradition: Woot! First page, etc, etc.

    Woohoo. That one was hilarious. The expressions of both the combatants at all times were simply priceless.

    And first page yattayattayatta. There. Done.

    This strip, too, was cool. It seems like Belkar will escape Azure city...

    Huzzah! Cool comic, Giant. "Meanwhile, outside..." Now, the question rises...do they throw away the soup, now that it's been Belkarized?

    Ah, more Belkar vs. Miko! So, the question is - is this the premature end of the duel, or will we get an actual winner?

    Now, the million-dollar question: will Miko realise Belkar isn't kersplat? Or will she just leave him for dead?

    Tune in next time to find out!
    Or... maybe not...

    Tune in next time to find out whether or not we'll find out!


    Personally I doubt Miko'd leave him without a Smite Evil or two...

    Damage doesn't seem to affect apprarance apart from scars and so on.

    Because unless they're using the Wound Point system, HP loss doesn't lead to scarring except for flavour :).

    Great comic Giant, go Belkar!!

    What's with the soup?
    1 Take the prepared chicken and stuff with the egg, which should be hard broiled, and pad out with the coriander. 2 Stuff the lamb with the chicken. 3 Stuff the goat with the lamb. 4 Stuf the camel with the goat. A pre-prepared camel is rather more convenient - don\'t be afraid to ask your butcher.

    If she's been able to squeeze in the occasional lay-on-hands, the burns would probably also be the first to heal (if there's a choice). After all, it seems the saké only provided normal fire (as could be expected).

    I have a question: Does Halfling drop soup refer to something other than the obvious (Some kind of wordplay that I'm missing? My kitchen-English is not as updated as I would like it to be. Otherwise, the soup looks like Swedish yellow pea soup, but then the arrak-liqueur (punsch) is what's missing)?
    There aren't really any exclusive or original ideas on TVTropes. That's kind of the point.

    Egg drop soup.

    It's chinese, and therefore somewhat in keeping with the oriental theme of azure city.

    Great comic though I really hope that Belkar wins it cause I can't stand Miko ^^;

    I also needed someone to explain that with the egg-drop-soup (I am from germany)... muchos gracias!

    Seems to me that it is &quot;Miko 1 : 1 Belkar&quot; right now - I am pretty excited how it will end...

    Yeah. Join the club.


    It´s still a great strip,though. And it has to one of the earliest ever... I mean, the OP of this thread is timestamped what... 5:43 AM East Coast Time? :o, if I may say so.

    But, speaking as a European, I´m happy whenver strips are up early, because that gives me the opportunity to read them on the same day, instead of on the next. Please keep that up, Giant! (Although it doesn´t have to be 5:43 AM, of course - 10 AM or noon-ish is still more than enough)

    He he he, halfling drop soup. That is so random. I suppose it was the only way of saving Belkar (i.e. being random) short of Miko herself grabbing him due to her sence of honor, and I'm not sure even that streaches far enough. Beats by far the old trampoline or matress senario. C'est tres bien, Giant. ;D
