    This answered some questions and was pretty good. this will also give Roy an incentive to fix his sword. the club is kinda lame.

    The time is now 00:17. Your comic is great!
    This single strip isn't the best one, but it explains some things. Seems like Roy's father doesn't think highly of his sons intelligence. He didn't seem mad at Roy, though.

    One thing, though. Isn't it better to die while young instead of waiting 'till one is old?

    I'm not sure if the mental image of Roy's dad doing some 'dirty dancing' is something that will leave me anytime soon.

    Stick to Violet, man, stick to Violet!


    I love the conversation between the two... yay for dialogue!

    ... and one of the quickest translation ever

    so great strip Gaint as always

    Brief crypto solution:

    I thought you said your dad was dead.

    Edit: Yay, I picked the correct color to hide the solution. ^

    Edit #2: Roy's dad would have been (most likely) alive when Roy was in 7th grade (see On the Origin of PCs)

    Well it's good but... I rolled an unnatural 1.

    I didn't understand. When Roy's sword get fixed? I remember that Starmetal thingy was a crap. Who, why and how, without starmetal? I don't remember while we are at the timezone of GMT +2 (time is 01:29), with a sleepless mind.

    ..or I guess I have not seen a topic about it or a strip.

    Edit: Ah yes, now I read it for second time. Shojo's priest's summoned him up, he's not come willingly. At least, he cannot come willingly to Roy with a broken sword. I get it now.

    I take 20. :p

    Good work on this one, Giant. Not your best, but damn, it's finally good to see Roy get what we've all been yelling at him on the forums to get done all these months. Fix your damn sword!

    Roy's sword wasn't fix, Eugene just summoned an illusion of the sword with a big cancelled sign over it to add to the cinematic quality of his return. He WAS an illusionist after all.

    Nice one. I wasn't expecting that about the sword... very cool.

    But really, it isn't Roy's fault he didn't get the sword fixed immediately after getting the starmetal, is it...? Oh, yes, it is.

    "This starmetal thing is kind of a bust, so...."

    Famous last words. No wonder Eugene is so irritable.... he must have ranted for days after he heard that out of Roy (I suppose that just because he couldn't manifest didn't mean he didn't monitor...)

    But wasn't the starmetal quest given by Sabine in disguise anyway? How is that supposed to have worked out, then? Was she supposed to steal it (and not fix the sword)? Oh, wait, it was supposed to be a distraction.

    But now I wonder. It is, after all, not "a fool's errand", since Roy did get it (it exists), and according to Eugene, it does have the power to at least restore the sword to "full functionality" (which presumably ordinary iron or steel would not). Just what is that starmetal stuff, then?

    I wonder....

    Roy's sword is still broken, which is why Roy's dad could not freely visit the material plane without being summoned. When Shojo went looking for guidance, Roy's dad saw the opportunity to visit via the power of Shojo's clerics.

    Great comic Giant, on time too. Early even ;D

    Roy's dad said he couldn't appear because the sword had been broken, I'm assuming that Shojo was able to summon him, which is why he was brought into this "family business". I'm assuming that's what Kulatu meant.
