    Awesome! I've been waiting!

    Edit: And I'd like to add that today's comic was fantastic. That bit at the end about treating Banjo as a hostile witness was golden.

    Ha! Wonderful strip. I love the look back at all the memorable (or semi-memorable) characters from post-destruction rune. And was that Frued? If so, I was greatly amused by that as well.

    I also laugh at those who anguished because the strip was a little late... No Miko/Belkar scene for you, ya addicts. :P ;D

    Oh he can speak common, he just chooses not to.

    As to todays comic:

    Totally worth the wait. I second Lilly's comment.

    This really was the only way to go on after the tension in #270. Besides, any strip with a flumpf in it is a good one by me!

    EDIT: I'm dumb

    Take your time...

    ... brilliant! If for nothing else, OoTS should get into trouble for troubling these innocent creatures... repeatedly! ;)

    Now, I'm looking forward to what Defense may call... but I suppose that we'll savour an interlude of Belkar vs Miko first!

    Yes. The raven ruled that strip.

    Serves you right, V, for taking your class features for granted.

    God, I never find a use for that dang familiar.

    One wonders why would the raven turns against V. is this a union thing?.

    If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck... it might be Elan. They\'re about the same int range, but no self respecting duck would be caught dead with a kazoo

    Excellent strip, as usual.
    One question, aren't familiers, by definition, extremly loyal to their masters? I'm not a big D&D player (but I understand the basics) but I thaught familers were automatically loyal to their masters cause?

    Loved it, well worth the wait. The “treacherous avian” was the highlight of the strip.

    Its a trial, people are supposed to say the "Truth" at Trials, right? =P

    I know that this has already been asked, but I've got to know: why is the woman in the second panel translucent?

    I don't need to know what the raven is saying: I'm sure it's something both damning and hilarious. As far as I can see it, the Order's going to need to get deus ex machina'd out of there.

    The used description "Chair of truth" could implicate, that it´s magic forces one to SPEAK and the whole truth he or she knows of.

    My theory on the translucent chick is that diviners of the Sapphire Guild get spiffy chameleon-camouflage robes. Why would they need such things? Uh...to make counter-divination harder! Yea, that's it!

    Okay, I have to admit complete confusion. There's no case I can see.

    - Divination: Yes, they touched the self-destruct rune.
    - Goblin: He was not a witness to the act and the
    Goblin was serving an Evil master.
    - Cockroach (wow, amusing to see animals testify):
    Okay, yes, he touched the self-destruct rune.
    - Blackwing: Did the bird appear more than once in the dungeon?
    If so, it wasn't a witness to anything much.
    - Town person: Yes, the castle blew up.
    - Doctor: Were they given a psych interview?
    - Flumph: They were not charged with any crimes against the flumph, so all
    it can relevantly testify is that, shucks, they blew up the mountain.

    Is it just me, or is there no case? Plus, Elan testifying with Banjo would be an ideal secondary defense.

    Basically, all they've shown is that they touched the self-destruct rune. This says nothing about culpability for weakening the fabric of the universe or destruction of the gate, for that matter. Consequently, I don't understand this strip. :(
