    I am enjoying seeing more of Therkla, and less of the Haley/Celia arc, that was dragging on and on. Nice work Giant!

    Well, looks like Therkla is more the "kill" rather than "weep into a cushion" type of girl. Which doesn't bode well for Elan.

    Damn, of course, he haven't taken rapier with him

    Now he must fear the dagger, the shuriken, and the ninja.

    The shuriken makes a persuasive argument, yes. Poor Elan. He's going to be damned if he does and damned if he doesn't.

    Aww, Elan wants to be exclusive (possibly despite his Dashing Swordsman PrC)...unfortunately, Therkla would like her dagger to be fairly exclusive with his spleen right now >> But who needs one of those anyway?

    See, THIS is why pirates and ninjas don't live happy-ever-after. Oh wait, Elan's not a pirate is he? Oh well, at least we know that he's not cheating on Haley.

    I wouldn't want to be in Elan's shoes (plus, they'd probably be too big for me, unless he's got very small feet).

    Elan Magnet? Sweet! I can't wait to see it.

    Belkar Magnet? I didn't even know there was one, now I'm disappointed I never got it :P I'll have to look for a picture to see what it looks like.

    Ok, who's going to kill Elan first?

    Haley for cheating on her or Therkla for dumping her?

    Then again, Haley just got really, really when she saw him making out with Samantha, but that doesn't change the fact he's basically screwed.

    Rock, meet hard place. Catch Elan in between each other. Therrrrre ya go. Now you can call each other "Haley" and "Therkla". Perfect. My job here is done.

    Yeah, but there are fun ways to be damned and there are sharp, pointy ways to be damned.

    Poor, poor Elan. Of course, right now, you wonder if Therkla will even accept him now since he already said no. People are hard to figure out. Ninjas aren't any easier.

    Still, it looks like she's pretty decisive when it came to disobeying Kubota. I guess that's one good thing about it.

    I wonder if there's any good place to get pizza nearby in that setting...

    I think I'll be taking bets on that.

    Come on, place your bets (you can only bet cookies). I'll give it a 3/1 odds of Therkla killing Elan first because even if Haley discover it, I think she'll try to kill Therkla before Elan.

    Anyway, Therkla seems pretty desperate. I'm guessing the poor girl had never really had a crush before.

    But more importantly, poor Elan. No matter what he say or do, hes screwed.

    Of course, on the other hand, Elan is supposed to have a happy ending...Threesome? After all, Haley latent bisexuality has to show up again eventually.

    Actually, it's probably Elan backing off from the crazy lass with the weapons.

    This will end poorly for either Elan or Therkla and only one of them is a PC. I feel sorry for Therkla.

    Course, im also a big fan of Tsukiko.
