    hehe, Celia. So you can rationalise it a little easier.

    I don't think those two are going to be able to control young Belkar now they are out of the city. Poor Celia is going to be going "Oh Gods!" about a dozen times a day.

    The comic seems to be numbered 339 instead of 539, and the original 339 has disappeared of the archives.

    The resistance isn't at war with a gnome!
    Well of course not, not anymore. He's dead.

    Heh I like his roundabout "everybody wins" logic. I'll just kill him to get the thing he doesn't need anymore because he's dead.

    *pats Haley* I think I have a solution. Haley can compromise by only strangling one of them. *cough*Celia*cough*

    Belkar is getting more evil by the day. I love it!!

    Celia is a great character, and I'm glad she's getting fleshed out. She's almost as good a straight man as Roy.

    Absolutely hilarious.

    This flies in the face of every argument that pretends Belkar is non-evil.

    Just a heads up, Rich. The comic is pointing to http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0339.html, not http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0539.html. And the title needs to be corrected as well.

    As for the strip, glad to see Belkar is still living the dream. And I am loving Celia even more with each passing strip.

    Well Haley should strangle him. Keeping Belkar was a good idea when Roy was around and when there was enough party members to keep him in line but now, no matter what Haley say or do, Belkar is gonna end up killing as much defenseless and innocent people as evil enemy soldiers.

    Seriously, I know hes funny but its just kinda stupid for any good guy to keep him alive now. There was only one jailer in the world who could keep Belkar from killing innocents and now Roy is dead so Belkar is now back to what he was before joining the Order, a bigger threat for everyone then any of the evil monster you could make him kill. Beside, its not like they cant just resurect him AFTER they bring Roy back...well, if Belkar hasnt become the lord of the Abyss and dont want to come back by then.

    Anyway, Celia is now officially my favorite female character, if she keep up like that shes going to take Shojo place as my third favorite character.

    i've always trusted fox :), and was that a Gnome Illusionist??? And why is it that Belkar seems like the smartest character lately?? One good thing though, he wore the gnomes hat instead of wearing the gnome as a hat!!!

    Wow, I was just thinking to myself, "I wonder if the comic's updated. It's about that time," and here it is.

    Oh, and for some strange reason, I can't access the real 339 in the archives...

    I wonder how one goes about becoming a deity in the OOTS-verse... It might make Roy's defeating of Xykon easier:


    : This time I have something that you don't have, Xykon!

    : Skin?

    : Divine Rank.

    The link's taking me to 339 instead of 539. Entering the number directly returns the same result. Help?

    Belkar isnt an epic magic user, lots of more powerfull CE adventurers died before and beside, you are not even supposed to keep your level when you die (though I dont think Rich use that rule). Beside, demons ends up killing devils and themselves more often then they kill mortals so yeah, its definitly good for the universe.

    I do not think Haley has the ability to control Belkster... At least not in ways she is willing to use.

    Belkar will probably find some excuse to kill the donkey eventually. And serve him for lunch.

    I'm beginning to find Celia quite irritating--it was obvious Haley disapproved of killing the gnome, so why she felt the need to come out with the "so you can rationalize it easier" line is beyond me. I hope she isn't going to be this sanctimonious for her entire stay on the Prime Material!
