    Elan certainly chaotic alright, ready to fly off the handle and do what he knows is right without backing of the law. Gotta love him. Oh, and the mysteeeeerious bad guy and his ninjas are at it again... though obviously he picked the wrong ninja for the job!

    Perhaps that is a side effect of his Dashing Swordsman level...

    Was Elan TRYING to seduce that one, or was it an accident?

    And why not have Durkon just cast Speak With Dead to interrogate them? I'm pretty sure that that would be solid evidence.

    I wonder how this assassination plot will end up.

    Looks like that Bardic Charter is coming in handy...

    Also, why did no one just cast "Speak with Dead"? That should take care of the little "dead ninjas tell no tales" problem. Or do you need the corpse?

    With the ninja's skin color, and use of the word 'human', I think we're looking at a non-human assassin.

    Goblin, perhaps? But they're usually greener than that.

    Evil: Will seek personal benefit even if it causes harm to others.

    Heh, now I really wonder if this is that character in Xycon's lair that was a copy/paste of Haley's model with the different color scheme.

    Looks like she wants to know what 19 charisma looks like under the hood also -- If Haley were there she would have an arrow just like Roy.

    Speak with Dead needs the corpse, which was left back in Azure City.

    If people could contact dead spirits without the body, they could have called Roy up three months ago!
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    I liked this comic and the way it stabs fun at James Bond.

    And one other thing: Did you notice where her hand was when she was going on describing him just that -bit- too long..?

    Well, charming female villains is part and parcel of the Dashing Swordsman image, I imagine. And it's in the (male) bard charter too link.

    1. As an online discussion on the Order of the Stick forum grows longer, the probability of Miko Myazaki being mentioned approaches unity.
    2. He who mentions her in a disparaging way when irrelevant to the thread topic loses the argument.
    Fanclubbery list:

    Miko fanclub.

    Roy fanclub.

    Hinjo fanclub.

    The Chief fanclub.

    The Xykon fanclub. Because Evil is just that cool.

    Ah, right. Obviously, dragging enemy corpses isn't high on the priority list.

    Still, there are probably other divinations that would help. But, I guess its clarity as "evidence" is questionable. And Kubota would probably pull a Cliffport and say it's an illusion.

    Kubota's reaction was expected, but it's nice to know that the fate of House Kato rests on a less biased group of beings. I also enjoyed Hinjo and Elan's conversation as it displays a nice perspective of their different alignments and how they see things. They actually play off each other well.

    Maybe it´s good news for the Order. At least for Elan, because HE won´t be killed by the new villain!
