    I forgot Roy was drunk for a moment. But "he's a real boy now’’, got me good.

    Drunk Roy is fun. I'm glad he was able to make it up the ladder without incident, actually. After all, Roy has solved his "losing the sword" problem, but he still hasn't solved his "falling to his death" problem.

    Also, next page kind of has to be the book finisher, doesn't it?

    To be fair, Durkon solved that problem for him.

    So, the geographic North Pole is also the magnetic North Pole. I'd wondered.

    Wait, are the magnetic north pole and the true north pole in the same place in this world? If not, which one is Kraagor's tomb closest to?

    Somehow I'd pay to see drunk Roy trying to fight whatever batch of monsters that will most likely attack the ship again. Or maybe not. Who knows.

    Drunk Roy is the most funny version of Roy.

    It also seems that the more drunk Belkar gets, the more serious he gets. It's like their drunk selves are the others' sober selves!

    Loved that Haley is taking charge here, too, at least to a small degree. Being the sober second-in-command of the Order comes in handy!

    For reals, though, I dunno but probably.

    I'd say its that the gods who placed the different North Poles weren't as drunk as Thor usually is as opposed to laziness.

    I kinda wish Roy would drink more often... he gets way more interesting.

    "Neither trains nor airships drive on roads!" might be my new favorite Belkar quote.

    A story of the exact wrong way to run a campaign.
    The best thread derailment of all time.
    The "canonical" list of Mostly Useless Magic Items.
    A ridiculous campaign.

    Whoever said the Mechane uses a magnetic compass? It's a magical world, after all, and perhaps the most reliable direction- finders are magical.

    Plus, Pinnochio references. Awesome.

    Speaking of which, I wonder if Belker's item of feather fall will come up again. Perhaps it'll be an echo of the last time Belker handed Roy a ring.

    I once used in a short story that someone travelled north till even the compass lost its way. Not sure if that's comparable.

    Maybe not the next page, but I imagine that the printer is looking at his watch and tapping his foot by now.

    Also "pole" implies non-flatness.

    ...Is it just me, or is drunk Belkar smarter than drunk Roy?

    Also Bandanna's way of describing the North Pole is hilarious.
