    That was great! Maybe without Elan to "help" with the bluffing it will actually work for a change.

    Celia's got a sharp learning curve ahead, I think. Love the punchline, though.

    Hee. I loved this one. I really like the interactions you get in parties when adventurer-mentality meets up with the attitude of a normal person.

    "Hey look, there are thirty or so soldiers trying to attack us."
    "Oh no! What are we going to do?"
    "Kill them all. Duh."

    Loved Belkar's lines in this strip, particularly his response to Haley's question about whether or not he could handle 15 guards. Awesome.

    Finally! This has been just what I was waiting for. I just can't believe all of it! The characters are acting just as if they were real, and it is truly
    running as it should. Something in the back of my mind are the predictions spouted by the Oracle. I assume they'll all come true, but have any come true already? I guess we will have to wait and see.

    Personally, I'm still kind of wondering what happened to the Linear Guild, and who can forget Helga? (I do think tha was 'er name; Dwarf speak is good) I really hope they will finally be getting back in the game. This is enough, but I want more!

    Wouldn't one line have been sufficient to give Haley an X, given that her eye itself formed the other line?

    I'm guessing this also means that Celia knows Disguise or Alter Self. Let's see if she's better at it than Elan. (Of course, she could only disguise herself as an Outsider, right? So what good options are there for fooling Hobgoblins?)

    It's the wrong angle for the X's that denote death.

    Alter Self requires the same type, but Disguise Self just needs the same general body shape.
