    I forget, have they mentioned why Haley doesn't want to go to Greysky city, besides it's implied crime rate?

    Very nice. Could do with an edit: spped for Speed, snipped for sniped, but other than that, goodnews.

    Whoa, I can't believe how awful Belkar looks. And Diseased Belkar looks even worse.

    But yeah, this could end badly.

    it might. But when we have people making undiplomatic remarks at each other, we usually call it sniping. Snipping is something done with scissors. Sniping can be done with bows, but this is conversational sniping.

    they might have been making snippy remarks when they snipe at each other.

    Hurray, a new comic!

    I can't decide whether Celia's initiative is laudable or dangerous. Probably both! Haley DOES seem to be catching 'Roy's Disease' of getting tunnel vision following what she sees as the plot goal (Also laudable and dangerous).

    And Belkar's yellowing teeth are creeping me out!

    Excellent :D, this is going to be good. I'm guessing some long-running plot hooks are going to be wrapped up soon and I'm looking forward to it. I also liked how Haley's saying the same thing at the beginning at in strip #3.

    Greysky city? sounds pleasant enough. Especially if you're evil and require mass amounts of grimdark fog and suchlike in order to loot unsuspecting people's corpses in the middle of the night.

    "Spped" is an error that I will fix now; "snipped" is correct. To "snip" at one another is to argue, particularly in a passive-aggressive way; it leads to you being snippy. "Sniping" is slightly different.

    Belkar looks really sick right now. I wonder how much worse the Mark of Justice will get. Hopefully they won't get any random encounters...

    Read On the Origin of PCs.

    Well, Belkar certainly looks like s***. And Greysky City looks ominous, even taking into account that it's nighttime and those clouds all over it could be perfectly natural ones.

    Maybe it's because there's no lights coming from the town. Never a good sign.

    This really is a well-reasoned method of getting the team into Greysky for

    I believe Greysky City is where Haley was before OOTS. She was a member of the Thieves' Guild. She left when she realized she couldn't earn nearly enough gold to pay her father's 200kgp ransom because the Guild charged really high fees.

    She doesn't want to go back because a) Roy and co. still think she's IN the Thieves' Guild, b) she didn't leave on good terms, so c) bad things could happen when/if she's seen there again.

    Woohoo, new comic ^^
    I kind of get the feeling Celia will get in trouble down there... and B will be even more useless than before... (he seems in a very bad shape) though... hope we'll see soon...

    Also note: the girls WANT to help B,for whatever reason, even if they will be annoyed again by him... no abandoning poor Belkar ^^
    Also... I think the House of Fanservice will soon have some tribute to the slumber party *cough*

    Celia's going to get into trouble, and Hayley will have to come and help her and that will lead to a confrontation with Crystal and Bozzak. And as we know, Crystal may be an awful thief, but she's really good at killing people.

    This is ironic considering how I said a while back that I thought Greysky City sounded like a nice place based on the name (I like storms).

    This isn't neccessarily a side quest. No one in Greysky is looking for Celia, no one there wants to stop Roy from being resurected. Other than the rules of drama there's no reason she shouldn't succeed, and note that the rules of COMEDY might be well served by having her easily manage this when Haley isn't willing to try (or maybe Haley will have to come pull her out of trouble and deal with the Thieves guild, either way...).
