    Quoth the Belkar: Too slow, sister!

    I wonder how stupid a paladin can get. Really. Where do you think
    Belkar carries that lead sheet around? ;D

    Hey, this thread is for discussing August's comics, of which there are none so far. ;D

    I was gone from the forums for seven years, two months and a week. Let's see if I've been reeled back in.

    She should cast it when he isn't looking, but someone in the order (because she wouldn't do it) should pretend Belkar was detected as lawful good, just to see the look on his face.

    Now we have new, shiny, august comic to discuss.

    I guess Monk/Paladins would be a tad difficult to enspell. Poor Vaarsuvius

    excellent comic and a proper response to all the debate about samurais and miko's class.
    but we still don't know if she uses wakizashi and katana... ;)

    I just loved Roy's comment at the end.

    That does it. I didn't get Dungeon Crawlin' Fools, but I'm going to have to get the new book. I've GOT to know how Elan conned Roy into hiring him!

    (Of course, this means I'll have to get a copy of DCF when the next printing is available...)

    Incidentally, how do you order one when you don't have a credit card?

    Would not be funny if at the end would be Elan to make her slip out of paladinhood and not Belkar? ;D

    Ironic too, Elan is goody-good good. When she wants to kill him, more and more, she may twig that being good isn't everything.

    Ex-Monk Paladin. Totally called it, though I also suspected a couple levels in Samurai for fre TWF...but I guess I was wrong.

    I can also very much see why Roy is attracted to her too. She's a female, Japanese Southern Landsian version of him.

    And I am so getting this new book. I mean, the title alone is the worst and greatest pun I've heard all week.

    Not an ex-monk--she's still Lawful. She can't take any more levels of monk, true, but she's not an official "ex-monk"--she can still use her monk abilities.

    The Giant not only slays the great 'What's Miko's class' debate, but also gives a whole strip that again makes fun of D&D conventions and the failed attempt to bring real world stuff into it.

    "What is this Japan you speak of?" ;D

    Giant, I am afraid we're going to have to place you alone into an unbreakable bubble, just to make sure you never run the risk of endangering your writing hand, nor suffer any kind of accident that may send you to the hospital.

    You are simply too great a treasure for the geeks of the world to not try and protect you.

    And 'Master Samurai' was from the old 'Sword and Fist' splat book.

    "Truly, this journey shall be the greatest challenge to my alignment yet."

    This is why the Order of the Stick is my favorite comic altogether. ;D Cannot wait for "On the Origins of PCs" to be released since we'll finally know the age-old question of why they are called the Order of the Stick.

    Every time I see the legs on those horses, I can't help feeling they're really a couple guys in a horse suit. I imagine when they're 'off stage', they unzip it and take a soda break. :)

    <= Excited about the 2nd book! Sorry I can't swing by GenCon for an advance copy.

    Rich! you have outdone yourself!
    i think this is the best comic ever!
    3 major punch lines in one:
    "its like im watching my life, but from the outside..."
    "truly this journey shall be the greatest challenge to my alignment yet"
    "Ah so you took a few levels in monk before switching"
    its like you double inverted the real life, D&D and the comic "life".
    realy good
    makes me want to buy the book too, boom to buisness *chuckles*

    Remember: it's 'i' before 'e', except after 'c', or if the sound is 'ay' like in 'neighbor' or 'weigh'. Hierarchy, not heirarchy.

    I know it's a trivial detail that doesn't even alter the word's pronunciation, but every time I see 'heirarchy' I die a little inside. I mention it only because I care. I also hope everyone is eating enough fresh fruit.
    Alignments are objective. Right and wrong are not.
    Good: Will act to prevent harm to others even at personal cost.
    Evil: Will seek personal benefit even if it causes harm to others.
    Law: General, universal, and consistent trump specific, local, and inconsistent.
    Chaos: Specific, local, and inconsistent trump general, universal, and consistent.

    Will these books eventually become available at bookstores? I canít get to GenCon. Also, I would like to thank the Giant for going through the trouble to give his characters more back-story, whether or not I'll be able to find out what that back-story is.

    Evasion isn't level 1 ability so think maybe 3 Levels Monk or 2?

    Hmm, Smite more than once so i'd say maybe 7 levels Paladin?

    Level 3 Monk/Level 7 Paladin, seeing as everyone in the Order is at least level 9 or 10 I think.

    I love the idea. a Samurai is a Monk/Paladin. I'd agree that fits.
