    Hmmm... so, what's in the sack that she tried for twice before?

    Stay tuned....

    I wonder if she noticed Roy. She seems very calm, and I know I wouldn't be in this situation.
    Also, I wonder if Belkar is still delirious. Poor little guy, controlling Roy would be a dream come true and he can't take advantage of it.

    It seems like a general robbing, not that she was looking for a specific thing. I presume it's Haley's usual gold/gem/magic item mix.

    Roy has no equipment on, and we've already seen that one human skeleton looks very much like any other. She won't know that Roy has been turned into a golem until someone tells her.

    The more I see of Haley, as the leader, the more I like her. I wonder if there will be a bit of a power struggle when Roy returns. (I mean really returns, not just as a golem)

    You could be right, although the impression I get (Haley said "robbed" rather than "tried to rob" -- maybe I'm reading too much into that) is that she's hit some kind of "jackpot". Note that she acts like she was there for the robbery rather than for Celia (for one thing, how would she know Celia was there, specifically?), and went in despite her misgivings about the city (admittedly, part of that could be a correct assessment that Celia's street dumbs would be a major liability).

    that robbery probably will get her into trouble with the thieves guild... (as if she didn't already would have them)

    I got the exact opposite impression.

    She said the rain woke her, which means that she noticed that Celia, the cart, and Belkar were all missing. It would not have been difficult for her to follow a cart and donkey being led by a giant fairy through the city, especially if Belkar was puking off the back of it every once in a while. Once she saw where they were, she knew how to get in easily because of her previous robberies. She just helped herself to some more loot along the way.

    As you say, she didn't say that she TRIED to rob it twice before, but that she in fact DID rob it twice before.

    They haven't tried to leave the castle yet, but I doubt the girls are going to leave Roy's body.

    As for Belkar,

    Just outside the frame.

    Seriously, people, there's only so much room in each comic, I'm sure the Roylem will be dealt with in the next one.

    That was great, I thought it would just be three arrows to the back and a freak out over Roy from Haley but this way was much better, plus I thing they just got the funds for Roy's resurrection because that Grubwiggler guy must of been loaded to be buying all the fresh bodies coming out of a city like Greysky!

    I think what he means is that a NEW news entry would be a bit more visible than editing an old news entry.

    And I bet Roy's already in the bag. Or at least a bag. At last count Haley was packing what, like eight bags of holding? She probably even knows how to hotwire a golem.

    I'm still thinking Haley should have treated Celia as a liability; Haley has an important responsibility, getting Roy back to life and finding the rest of the OOTS; it may be cliché, but there's a world at stake. And for now, Celia has only been able to get in the way and dangerously comrpimise the success of their missions. Haley may be good, she's no paladin; saving people that put themselves in danger willingly in spite of her warnings and thereby threatening the success of their mission is a courageous, but unreasonable move.

    Nice.

    And, with the "Third time's the charm" thing, it seemed to me that all that was saying was that Haley had just now robbed it again, rather then saying that she got something she tried for the other two times.
