    Yay Therkla!

    I might actually be disappointed when Elan turns her down again.

    Please, they can't possibly let the mommy and daddy die! They're just too cute to die! I shall forever hate Qarr and Kubota if even one of them dies

    edit: Oh, wait! Daigo is still saving his family name just in case! There is hope!

    Pregnant mothers can't die, it's a rule. It requires an author that likes to mess with his audience, and with superior writing skills to handle such a dire moment to readers.
    Do you think Mr. Burlew would do such a thing as making fun on children sufferance?

    ...

    ...

    Ok, the baby is done for it.

    Nice! I really like Threkla and I'm glad shes on the right side now :)

    With Belkar too sick to fight we need a new character that does good things in a bad way.

    Well, my birthday is sure off to a good start! And is it just me, or is the Giant's avatar different? Or was this brought up before, and I am just noticing it now?

    Anyway I sense either a Big Damn Heroes moment or a Rape the Dog moment coming up. I really hope for the heroics. .

    Nope, I don't think I'm even registered there, beside I use a different handle on RPG forums.

    Kazumi is going to have to go into labor soon. It's too dramatic for her NOT to.

    Wow!

    I knew the giant could pull convoluted stuff out of nowhere, but I hadn't been expecting it just now... Reckon Daigo's gonna have to use his last name, holding the line against a swarm of ninjas (yep, ninjas come in swarms, just like flies and wasps), until such time as Elan and Therkla get there.

    This leaves Vaarsuvius, Durkon, Hinjo and Lien taking on the big extraplanar monster... Which I guess will be defeated as follows:

    Spoiler

    Durkon's gonna need to take it on... I'm expecting Thor's Might as a bare minimum, but I think in the end he'll need to get a quick miracle from Thor, just to even the odds enough.

    Cool.

    Pardon my forgetfulness, but do we know who the mom-to-be and dad are in the last frame?

    Kaplah!

    edit: I should be a bit more specific... what ballpark of strips were they from? I need a refresher. :)

    I doubt they are in danger. If we add Infant Immortality to The Inverse Ninja Law which was already lampshaded in this comic (back at the battle for Azure City) then factor in the fact that we are dealing with an Azure City version of a Duke and the two of them took their level in badass long, long ago, and heroes are already trying to get there.

    I think the first time we see them is when a certain Halfling is suggesting firing them out of a siege engine so they get spattered on the walls and allow the PCs to judge the correct angle of fire to allow the PCs and Hinjo to get to the tower quickly during the battle of Azure city.
