    Poor Belkar! I was hoping at the least that we would see what Shojo has to say to Roy, and it would involve Belkar and his freedom. First page! Omgooses.

    Roy was too generous. I wouldn't have stopped at "token revenge". Heh heh heh!

    As fithi said before, long time reader, first time poster.

    I'm really glad that Roy had his "revenge".... Hinjo is going to suffer.... Roy must be trully happy... after all, someone's going to know what it is like to endure Elan's gibberish for even a slight minute.

    First or second page, I wonder...

    Later Edit: Yeay, first page!

    Btw, why would the Spooky wizard who lives by the coast hire attorneys with such poor records?

    Hinjo is starting to turn into a real character, which makes me happy. He is one of my favorites. Possibly because I see a bit of myself in him. I'm not sure whether it's the value of sense of humor, or the fact that I plan on having a cool beard-thing exactly like his. Okay, I don't plan on it, but it might be cool.

    Anyway, a good comic as always. "Token revenge" is a fun phrase.

    Aww man, I NEVER get first page!

    Of course, they're splitting the party. That always goes well. I hate to say it, but I think I'm ready to see what the Linear Guild or Zykon and Pals are up to. After all the tension of the Miko/Belkar battle and the trial, the OoTS strips are feeling a little overly denoumont-ish.

    "Come to sunny Azure City: You'll be found innocent - eventually!"

    Its actually a really good slogan. I'd visit. But poor Hinjo... he can't use his coupons.

    Here's a shocker about this comic: It got me to post in the main thread, and there's no drama in the strip! First time in over a week!

    Good one, Giant.

    Yay! That was good! Hinjo, you fool of a Took! Look at what you've awakened!

    I wonder why Roy looks unstartled by the fact that Belkar has no defence.... loyalty in the heat of battle, but that's all? Someone's probably answered this while I was posting....

    The lawyer panel was definately the best. The two of them always work together, and they're a combined 5-147. All 5 wins credited to Jones and all 147 losses credited to Rodriguez. Classic.

    Hee, the look on Hinjo's face when he realizes what Roy has gotten him into is just great. Token revenge, indeed. But I have a feeling Roy's doing it as a friendly way of messing with Hinjo, and that in fact Roy actually likes Hinjo and thinks he's funny.

    Discount coupons, hee. Not to mention Mr. Jones (apparently) crediting all his losses to Mr. Rodriguez, and giving himself credit for all five of the team's wins.

    Anyhoo, the strip is further evidence that Elan (along with Belkar) is one of the True Sources of Comedy in the Universe. ;)

    I don't know about anyone else, but Elan's dialogue in the last panel, even though partially obscured really entertained me. Especially "...ave a lollipop?" Of course Elan wants a lollipop. LOL! ;D

    I have strong opinions on paladins, but I like how Hinjo is depicted. Unlike how most paladins are played, he is charismatic and diplomatic. He's likable, empathic, fair and he knows how to laugh. He shows that a Paladin's "Stick-up-the-butt" class feature is clearly optional, somewhat like two-weapon-fighting for Rangers. :)

    Observation:
    Hinjo says "Hey, don't blame the city for what the Sapphire Guard did to you." This sounds like he doesn't approve of how things are being run.
