    Classic, like it especially how not only is Elan still ignorant of what's going on, but how he still doesn't know who therkla is.

    Oh god Elan, how can it be possible to be that stupid.

    Anyway, Elan and Therkla are getting along just fine. I wonder if she already done her Heel face turn or if she'll actually try to explain things to Kubota.

    Somebody please smack Elan around the head really hard! He's so stupid it's not even funny anymore.

    But of course, that's just me.

    I think this is it. She likes Elan too much to have to continually try to kill him, and there'll be no way out of it EVENTUALLY if she sticks with Kubota.

    I don't know, on the scale of stupid things Elan has done, grabbing an object that someone stole from you while you were fleeing for your life from their village barely even registers. I mean, he started running away BEFORE the dispel magic, so he presumably grabbed Banjo then, when orcs were still attacking him. It seems pretty reasonable to grab your puppet on the way out in that situation.
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    Fantastic comic as always Giant.

    I wonder how Kubota is going to take this news though.

    And did he screw up big time by openly mentioning Kubota? Oh, and the regicide thing. This won't end well for Mustache Lad.

    OK, I actually came here to rant about having to leave for an exam in... 35 minutes (Yes, I have an exam on saturday. Hence the ranting), but lo! There was an update! And I feel considerably better now. Praise Banjo!

    To be honest, I don't expect Elan to leave Banjo regardless of the circumstances. Anyway as someone pointed out he probably picked the puppet before the dispel.

    Glad to see that they completed their mission and have a new fwiend.

    Does Durkon always use "they're" instead of "their"?

    I'm a bit disappointed. Banjo really would have benefited from some mass group worship. Surely they would have taken care of them for the interim. He might have even helped Elan with the greater cause once he attained more powers.

    I'm waiting for Durkon to prepare Fox's Cunning and Owl's Wisdom and cast them on Elan. Maybe then they might address Elan with some coherence.

    Hehe... Therkla changed sides very nice twist ^^ Might be interesting...
    Also, the 'back to the beginning' arc-symmetry's nice.
    And of course Elan's ability to get them into trouble just for the sake of Banjo.
