    Whoa, that's a lot of tribal goblins. Either way, we're back with Elan and the gang, complete with lampshade hanging! I like it.

    Heh too, true what Elan says, guess it'll be a few days before we learn why they're on Tribal Orc Island. Maybe something to with the Therkla?

    Yay! I'm very happy to be back with this group. In fact, my friend and I put a bet on it. :P I just earned $2.

    I wonder what happened though?

    They're orcs, not goblins. Goblins have darker green skin, ears, and yellow eyes.

    Am I seeing this right? Is that a second (different) turtle about to get stomped on in the last frame?

    Oh, the poor things... ... I just love it! Now, where is the hare?

    That's the same turtle that got stomped all comic. He packed his bags and makes a run for it (and doing it quite faster than humans). I'm guessing PLOT makes him run faster, so he can be stomped on next comic.

    Are those orcs, or half-orcs?
    Also Elan must have several levels in Knowledge(Forth wall), is that from being a bard?

    Heh, looks like every able-bodied orc is after them.

    I get the feeling this is somehow Elan's fault

    They should name the turtle Xeno.

    No matter how fast Elan goes, he will never catch up to it.

    No, no you're not. I hate it when I typo the punchline of the comic.

    That poor turtle. I'm assuming that an attempt to colonize an 'uninhabited' island has gone slightly wrong.

    Prediction: The next strip will be just as unrevealing as this one! Then all the pent up exposition Elan had to hold in will come bursting out. Possibly in a larger-than-usual strip.

    Also, quick, Elan! Pick up the turtle and throw it! Its shell might not be red or blue, but you'll still trip up the other racers!
