    Great strip!

    Mom was wrong, playing with fire can be good!

    Belkar seems to have better Int then some folks here were giving him credit for. That was a wonderful and creative use of "at hand" resources.

    No, I didn't put my axe in your back on purpose. I was... Ummm... Under a spell. Yeah, that's it. A spell.

    It's just too bad that's merely non magical fire. 1d6 points of damage, and a measly reflex save to put out.

    Is it me, or is the Giant throwing bones to the people trying to nail down the Orders stats as of late?

    Whoa.
    You know, I'm wondering if Belkar's some kind of idiot savant...Genius at hurting people (physically and mentally), retarted at most other stuff.

    I've been reading the comic since the very beginning, but didn't feel the need to register and post here before tonight. I couldn't stand Miko before tonight. But to see her taunted, humiliated, and hurt evoked a feeling of... pity... like I've never felt before. To be able to evoke such feelings in a comic about stick figures is pure genius. Rich, I bow to your art-fu.

    That evil bitter halfling! has crossed the line! I dunno, I used to hate Miko, but then I read those threads defending her and god damn it! Miko's never done anything wrong! She's in fact been too nice for her own good!

    ....

    Was a good strip though... lol ;)
    Well itís about time! I was starting to think that Iíd researched that ďXykonís Moderately Escapable ForcecageĒ spell for nothing!

    chaotic evil AND smart. great!!!!!!!

    1d6 non magical fire? while you're soaked in sake you cant just extinghish the fire that easily... i guess... at least, if i were DMing i'd let it burn for 3 or 4 rounds at least, or raise the DC for extinguishing the fire in 10 ou 15 points...

    see ye

    Between my mom (who introduced me to OotS) and me, I think we had a good five minutes of straight laughter.

    Belkar seems to be making cunning use of the "one ninja" rule of action movies: Many ninjas=easy to defeat, One ninja=unstoppable. Substitute "OOTS adventurer" for "ninja" in this case.

    Brilliant strip, by the way.

    Eeee.

    Reading the Jack archives did not put me in the emotional context to prepare for this comic.

    Aaron "The Mad Whitaker" Bourque; Miko's likely got a ridiculous Reflex save, but still: death by burnination? My father watched a guy burn to death on an oil rig about 18 years ago. Sent him into a depression that he never really got over. By extension, I've always had a rather gut-wrenching "that is so wrong" reaction to such a thing, even if it's completely fictional. That firestarter episode of the X-Files, in, like, the second year? Squicked me the No masking profanity. out. I cannot wait for Belkar to die.
    Women supposedly mature at a faster rate than men&&If that is true, how come they live so much longer then . . ?
