    My feet are nearly draggin' on the ground
    My companions, they're ridin' great big horses
    And I'm a little too close to that liquid comin' down...

    DOWN AT THE ENGLISH FAIR,
    ONE EVENING IT WAS THERE,
    I HEARD A SHOWMAN SHOUTING,
    UNDERNEATH THE FLAIR.


    I'VE GOT A LOVELY BUNCH OF DACH-UH-SUNDS,
    THERE THEY ARE ALL STANDING IN A ROW.
    BIG ONES, SMALL ONES, SOME AS BIG AS YOUR BODY,
    GIVE THEM A PAT, A FLICK OF THE REINS,
    THAT'S WHAT THE SHOWMAN SAID.

    Spoken by Mark Antony in Shakespeare's "Julius Cæsar". Act iii. Sc. 1, line 298

    In context:

    http://www.bartleby.com/70/4031.html

    Antony is addressing Caesar's bloody corpse:

    O! pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth,
    That I am meek and gentle with these butchers;
    Thou art the ruins of the noblest man
    That ever lived in the tide of times.
    Woe to the hand that shed this costly blood;
    Over thy wounds now do I prophesy,
    Which like dumb mouths do ope their ruby lips,
    To beg the voice and utterance of my tongue,
    A curse shall light upon the limbs of men;
    Domestic fury and fierce civil strife
    Shall cumber all the parts of Italy;
    Blood and destruction shall be so in use,
    And dreadful objects so familiar,
    That mothers shall but smile when they behold
    Their infants quarter’d with the hands of war;
    All pity chok’d with custom of fell deeds:
    And Cæsar’s spirit, ranging for revenge,
    With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
    Shall in these confines with a monarch’s voice
    Cry ‘Havoc!’ and let slip the dogs of war;
    That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
    With carrion men, groaning for burial.


    I'm a Shakespeare fan . . . ;)

    It occurs to me that Elan might be a better bard if he hadn't spent quite so many skill points on cross-class skills.

    It also occurs to me that since Belkar was able to ride his dog without trouble in #140, he might have at least one rank in Ride too--that, or it's so docile that it's easy to ride, the perfect mount for a certain kind of halfling, but exactly the opposite of what Belkar wanted.

    Who says he's not a good bard?

    Yay for cross-class skills.

    Yeah, I had some trouble with them too... My first Ranger in NWN wasted all her skill points on cross-class Open Lock and Disable Trap. I don't think I had more than 6 points in any other skills at level 14. This was before I found out about the concept of multiclassing... I multiclassed to a rogue for the next 4 levels but it didn't help much.

    Poor Roy. Pity he didn't study Cat Herding, it would help him more with this bunch...

    At least now we know why the bard, with more skill points than anyone in the group except the rogue, is totally clueless on just about everything... he's sunk all his points into cross class skills! Not only does he exchange them at at 2:1 ratio, but most of them are completely pointless for a bard to have (which is why they are cross class in the first place). The odd thing is, he would have to seriously work at it to blow all his points on cross class skills, seeing as how he is a bard, which has just as versitile a skill range as rogues do.

    Small nitpick:

    If there is a pommel on the saddle, then these must be Western style saddles. This is a bit of an anachronism, as it seems to me that mideval settings would feature English-style riding, which uses saddles which do not have pommels.

    Then again, this is The Order of the Stick, so I suppose I shouldn't care.

    Right. There shouldn't be a pommel on the saddle. That makes no sense. Its an anachronism to the nth degree.

    Oh and what's with these elves and halflings and dwarves and liches and ogres and goblins and spellcasters and dragons and chimerae and quests to find starmetal and ghosts and tiny villages with shops for everything you could think of conveniently located near terribly evil dungeons ...

    In other words:

    I think someone missed the point.

    The modern 'English style' saddle is just that -- modern. Used by fancy-ass prancers and fox-hunters, not dudes with swords who want to stay in the saddle after they swing their weapons. :P Do a google, dude!

    And right when you think this strip is just fun and games the Giant reveal that it has also a fiendish plot. (one that make even more sense of that of many D&D adventures, actually)
