    I knew belkar was toying with Miko...

    plus the return of the lead sheet.

    Wait A SEC! That was a choatic act! it broke the law! she may not use Detect evil on a belkar. even a murderer has some rights.

    Not toying - playing might be more apt. Interesting that he didn't slit her throat while she was down. Would that count as Chaotic Evil behavior? - Not that I want to restart that whole Belker's-alignment discussion. I'm just wondering how other people play the alignment.

    Great comic, giant! :D

    (Now, i like Belkar again. In one or two strips he seems a little to bad for me.)

    Edit:
    I think it matches up with his alignment - he's doing everything that he enjoys and he has an evil sense for humor ;)

    Yay! Great strip. WANG! and BORED! being my favorite bits, of course.

    I'm glad I'm replying before everyone gets all angry at Belkar for being nice and not killing Miko while she was unconscious after being WANGed.

    That was great. I'm wondering about Belkar though, because Miko can take him out easily, and that was pretty close to being her complete advantage after she woke up. At least he could have given her a critical wound.

    Oh he is being very choatic and evil, evil becuase he wants the pain to continue, choatic becuase he wants to have fun at the risk of his life.

    and belkar must of invested in the dash feet, to stay ahead of miko like that.

    Thats chaotic for you. I still don't see how a lead sheet could deal all that subdual damage though. Oh well.

    I love that Belkar beats Miko and all he does is whine about being bored. :-)

    I couldn't be more pleased! I loved Belkar. Evil, mischivious, and now, compassionate purely for the sake of fun! Can Cafe Press sell lead sheets with Belkar's autograph?

    Incidentally, one more point against Miko as she failed to realize he could have ended it then and there. Belkar, you are my hero.

    The lead sheet must have REALLY decreased his ability to swim in the soup, now that I think of it..

    He took a level of Barbarian, giving him the Fast Movement extraordinary ability. He and Miko should have around the same speed.

    Absolutely hilarious comic, the single best moment being the uptight pally getting her ass handed to her by a lead sheet.

    Woo.

    Noooooooooo! Giant! Do you realize the buzz this is gonna create in the Fight's end thread?
    That said, I dunno, I didn't really like this one that much..... probably because I'm such a Miko fan. I guess now Belkar has a huge advantage. Why didn't miko already take that potion? She could have taken it instead of talking. Sigh....

    Well he was forcefully removed, don't forget he refused to use plastic weapons and killed 2 camera men, he was a sanger to all who lived. And that is why the queen/witch is still alive!

    but I think Miko's armor may slow her down a bit, which is why belkar is in the lead, I would at least rule that a halfling barbarian with clothes could outrun a human paladin with light/medium armor. Then again I've never tried on chainmail so I don't know.

    Belkar is back. So is the lead sheet. Belkar has to win some points from someone for not offing Miko while she was down. I do believe he is toying with her, but how will it end? At least he is fully healed now. That makes for more fights!
    Miko+Belkar+lead sheet=Priceless!!
    And then we burn out........AND FADE AWAY!!!

    A minor nitpick: Cure Critical Wounds is a 4th level spell. In 3.5 potions can usually only be made of spells up to 3rd level*. So, usually, there's no such thing as a potion of Cure Critical Wounds.

    I guess Belkar just failed a spellcraft check. ;D

    *(There are exceptions like the Master Alchemist prestige class from Magic of Faerun.)

    Man, do I love Belkar even more now! :D

    Maybe it's not for the right reasons, but he respected his fallen opponnent.
