    Don't think I've ever seen a comic come up at this time...I mean, what time is it for you, Giant? 1am?

    Anyway, I think we all knew no-one was actually going to get sacrificed here...at least, not until Therkla finds out that Elan is "spoken for". Hell hath no fury like a half-orc scorned!

    An epic level ranger couldn't track his thought process.... ouch.

    How hard would it be to see a Ninja crouching there. I was suprised they could so easily.

    Great comic. :)

    "With moderate power comes moderate responsibility." That's some actual words of wisdom there, far more applicable to most of us than the original quote is, I'm sure.

    Is anybody taking bets on the upcoming Haley vs. Therkla throwdown?

    Small mistake in the 4th panel. "...I've gained at some small ability..." "At" needs to go, methinks.

    Was the joke involving ignorance as a power source a 4th edition reference?
    There's a dwarfish saying: "All trees are felled at ground-level" -although this is said to be an excessively bowdlerized translation for a saw which more literally means, "When his hands are higher than your head, his groin is level with your teeth." -Terry Pratchett

    That was an excellent comic as always - I wonder if he'll be as blind to Therkla's love as he was to Haley's...

    I like Therkla in this. One-track mind much?

    But it will be interesting to see her reaction to Haley. *ponders possibility of catfight*

    lol I loved the line “I’m just happy the knife stopped coming closer.”

    Also making reference to the spider-man reference was great too.

    Have to admit, Elan's dialogue is incredibly profound. No matter who we are, or how little we think we can do, we all have responsibility. There is no such thing as having none.



    It also really reflects on his growth as a character.

    I still have a hard time grasping the fact that comic with stick figures has better character development than many book and film "sagas" that exist.

    Oh, and it's funny, too.

    You'll get used to it.

    Anyway, «Ignorance» as a class power source? Man I wonder what would happen if Thog would get that class power source...though considering how he can easely rip off a door and fight with it, it might already be the case.
