    Many thanks to El Goonish Shive for the banner image.

    Give a player a fish, and he’ll probably try to sell it to an NPC fisherman.

    Teach a player to fish, and next week he’ll show up with the book, “The Complete Adventuring Fisherman”. He’ll start hunting for some monstrous leviathan to catch and enslave, and he’ll be dual-wielding two fishing poles.

    Perhaps if V'd set the distance a little further away...well at least they didn't appear while Haley and Belkar were sneaking around a goblin encampment. Great stuff here.

    ...and I don't know about you, but the shared look of expectation between Mr. Scruffy, Haley and Belkar does not bode well for the near future!

    Why irresponsible? They had no reason to know that they were anything but regular birds and they were hungry.

    Why is the site slow at 1 AM ET on a Saturday night/Sunday morning?

    Hmm, where's Celia?

    Well, this is interesting. My first thought was that this will almost guarantee that Haley and Belkar's own efforts to contact the group will fail as well. But I'm starting to think that it'll succeed after all, and the reason why has to do with Elan and Therkla.

    The failure of V's birds to return will be interpreted as a sign that Belkar and Haley are really dead, which could be enough to convince even Elan. That means that when he and Therkla meet again, Elan is MUCH more likely to be receptive to her advances. Which increases the "awk-ward!" factor when Haley and Belkar DO reunite with the rest of the OOTS.

    Now, there's another element that could really send things off the rails: the third panel, where Lien takes Hinjo aside, evidently to talk about Therkla. A lot depends on how much Lien knows and suspects. If she suspects Therkla's crush on Elan, Hinjo may either a) warn Elan about Therkla being on the side of the Bad Guys, b) realize that Elan's presence prevents Therkla from coming after him and react accordingly, or c) both. If not, Hinjo may just start a chess match with Kubota, which may include tasking Elan as a double agent or counter-assassin, as I suggested in my rundown in the last discussion thread, or beefing up his own security.

    But we'll have to wait to find out, because I'd be surprised if this isn't a neat segue into what's going on with Haley and Belkar, or at least a segue into a different storyline, as this stint with the boat crew seems to have reached its natural end.

    EDIT: From the 562 thread:

    Well, that's one way for Hinjo to respond to Lien's news.

    Best BBQ ever! Or is it worst? At any rate, those birds looks rather tiny once on the spit. Will there really be enough to feed a human, a halfling, and a cat? Good things that, as an outsider, Celia does not need to eat.

    Heh, I was reminded of Blackadder too (although Blackadder the First, but your quote is funnier). If only V had the foresight to use an old fashioned written messages alongside the magic - redundancy is always a good idea when sending messages!

    Celia isn't there because -

    A) There were only three birds and the cat gets a share before she does.

    B) She's vegan.

    C) She became outraged over Belkar shooting the little birdies (some of whom she recognized as endangered species) and left in a huff.

    D) All of the above.

    Note: Oops! As has been pointed out, I should have said HALEY shot the birds, not Belkar.

    Haley did it, those are Haley's arrows in the corner: three arrows, three birds, a few feathers. Don't blame the cook.
