    Default OOTS #284 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is up. Double-sized goodies.

    Someone check the time to see how long it will take for the cryptogram masters to get this one cracked...

    Awesome strip (just like the last many strips ... ah ok all the strips)! And hooray for the heroes being found not guilty :). The only downside is that now I have to wait until wednesday to find out if Miko kills Belkar or if she will be stopped in time. Kind of cool with the blue eyes she has in the second to last panel. She seems a tad... annoyed :D.

    And, indeed someone crack the cryptogram fast. I wan't to know what Haley is saying but I don't want to work for it.

    Hmm,

    Different from what I expected.

    Both the Miko/Belkar part and the outcome of the trial.

    Can somebody use a timemachine to get the wednesday strip right now? :)

    Great strip Giant! Hope something bad happens to Miko-like realising Belkar let her live after trying to kill him.

    Not speculating about what is going to happen next is really hard!

    I had expected them to crash in at the time of the verdict, but just after is ofcourse also very very interesting!

    Great Work! Congratulations!

    Well, 'Fx! B'n fxt XO' translates easily to 'No! I'm not OK', so someone with more time on their hands can use that as a starting point to translate. :)

    That was awesome. I was thinking exactly the same as Elan: that it was rather anticlimactic, but then BAM! From 0 to awesome in the blink of an eye. Actually, it wasn't at 0, the piece of paper and "Mr scruffy can shove it..." bits alone would have made it a good strip, but damn, what a finale. Welll played, sir :).

    Finished translations, I only numbered the panels in which Haley speaks to make this quicker...more to come as I copy and crack the rest.

    Panel 1: "What?"

    Panel 2: "No, wait, that verdict doesn't make sense. Laws don't work that way."
    **I think there's a typo in the original script here, where the Giant used a Q to start the second sentence...Daws doesn't fit. :)**

    Panel 3: "I've seen enough of my Theives' Guild friends sent to prison to know that this should have been a conviction."

    Panel 4: "But...but it doesn't make any sense!"

    Panel 5: "No! I'm not OK, this whole thing made NO SENSE!"
    **Small typo in the above panel: The "t" in the word "not" is actually a "t"**

    Panel 6: "We WERE guilty! It should have been a guilty verdict! I can understand if they wanted to reduce the sentence due to the circumstances, but it should still have been a guilty verdict."

    **The rest is borrowed from Nightstallion, who got the rest done before I did.**

    Panel 7: "Oh, never mind. I don't know why I'm bothering."

    Panel 8: "Wait--Elan, what did you just say?"

    Panel 9: "Oh my gods, Elan! That's it! Elan, you're a genius!"

    E-excellent. And most interesting. This should generate no end of delicious controversy. Ah, division, emnity, discord, vendetta, the opening and re-salting of old-wounds... it's times like these I live for. Let the carnage begin!

    Ooh- ooh- Belkar is defenceless and dying! This is Miko's test of alignment, ain't it?

    Maybe Miko will relent and use her potion of healing that she has stashed away for moments like this...

    Wow. Just........wow.

    It's like, the OotS starts rejoicing abotu their release, and Elan starts talking about stuff being anticlimatic, when BOOM! In comes Miko and Belkar.

    You all could probably guess that that was gonna happen, right? And then Elan clinches it, without even registering that Belkar's about to die. Boy, is he slow, or what?

    He also did something like that in an earlier comic; now which one was it, which one was........aha!

    Hollywood, eat your heart out........

    10 bucks says Miko will get her paladin powers revoked at the last second

    Also the hilt of roy's sword seems to be blue, not green as it should be...as his name is greenhilt not bluehilt

    Does the line across the eyes mean negative hp or something? I mean, is he knocked out or what?
