    Who woulda thought Mr Scruffy had levels in Barbarian too....

    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.

    Ah, flinging housecats at people, such fun, the memories... and really Belkar could have taken that position fairly confidently. Xykon is an epic level spellcaster after all, and for all Belkar knows he could remove the MoJ with a snap of his fingers, sure he wouldn't owing to lack of memory and him probably just killing and raising Belkar as a faster way, but thems the breaks.

    Indeed. Mr. Scruffy is the best character in the strip.

    ...wait, that is the character you meant, right?

    You know, I had one of those days where it seems that nothing got done and no one could make up their minds. A day of delay. A truly unrewarding hamsterwheel sort of day, in spite of my own efforts.

    I just happened to check the strip before toddling off to bed .. .and now I will go to bed laughing.

    The power of immediate gratification, indeed! Good old Mr. Scruffy! Here's to the true power of Azure City!

    Thanks, Giant!

    After a dissapointing #519 comic, this totally makes it up for it!

    Hilarious comic, and it's great that someone realizes the very real possibility of an angry cat to the face being a deadly weapon. Also good to see that Scruffy defied my expectations and lived through the castle exploding.

    Thanks Giant, and for bringing it to us so late.

    He can't kill anyone inside of the city walls. He could just take them outside and kill them.

    The true power of Azure City makes a wonderful comeback.
    Mr. Scruffy rules all!!

    Belkar saying he was going to take the offer is really weird though. He cannot kill, so who was he going to execute?

    large scale killing, for he is not getting any younger? How old is 'the Belkster' anyway?

    Maybe that 15+ level evil cleric or near epic level lich sorcerer could have done something about the whole Mark of Justice thing...

    Put the guillotine just outside the city walls.

    (Actually, more likely that Xykon could just remove the Mark of Justice, but if Belkar had thought of that, he would certainly have accepted.)

    The most underestimated of weapons: the cat.

    As it happens, even for Belkar, working for Xykon would be a dumb idea. Xykon does indeed kill people on an impulse.
