    Check out the wight's feet. Priceless.

    Great comic - the first panel with the wight smiling because he has the paladin's shoes is hilarious. But the long-shots in the next few panels have the shoes back on the paladin's feet. Just a copy/pasting error.

    EDIT: Corrected, and while I was writing no less.

    Hmm, what potions are those that she's quaffing, you think?

    Also, she's mighty confident for someone who got trashed the last time she tried to solo a full caster.

    I severely doubt two arrows could stop Tsukiko, so here's hoping those potions are useful!

    I loved the touch of Tsukiko giving the Wight Thanh's shoes.

    Here's hoping for some flaming sneak attack damage!

    Nice.

    That was... unexpected. I thought Tsukiko'd force Thanh to fight and die against the Rebellion on her behest.

    Flaming sneak attack, aye--- sneak attacks are viable as long as the rogue wins Initiative, right?

    One nice thing with Rich is that we WILL find out exactly what those three potions were

    Reminds me of a game where us adventurers infiltrated a secret society, where to say hello they had a special handshake that involved a lot of hand slapping. Of course we were hunting a vampire...

    Does playing Pattycake will make Thanh lose his paladin hood ?

    As a side note, i had to look on wikipedia what is pattycake ;p In France it's called something else (i don't even know the name ;p)

    Question.

    What is this "pattycake" Tsukiko is talking about?

    Awesome comic! I'm glad Haley's trying to make up for leaving O-Chul behind.

    3 potions and 3 empty bottles.

    Well, i think we can rule out barkskin, that would have shown i suppose.

    Classic boots are cat's grace (especially for a rogue), bull's strength (not so useful for a rogue) and if you go up agains casters, owl's wisdom or bear's endurance (useful for everyone, really).

    Then there are lots of other useful protective potions but we could make a list and betting pool.

    Invisibility from undead would be helpful for example.

    Edit: I think it is save to assume that one vial contained Flame Arrow Oil.
