    Just brilliant. And I'll bet everyone was thinking of Daigo with that title.

    Heh heh. Great one, I love the look on Argent's face in the dentist chair, and how Hinjo looks so akward sitting on Durkon's head.

    Nice and funny but... what's the matter with aiming for ankles? Most of us killed at least a Storm Giant by chopping the feet's nails.

    I know I did.

    It probably refers to how "argent" is another word for "silver".

    BTW, I think this might help explain why Hinjo's katana is lighter than the one he used against Miko and during the Battle for Azure City

    (sobs) I hate my PSP. I just noticed, "new comic is up." I click, and, "There is not enough memory."

    So Thor's Might can't be used to increase run speed, but can be used as a makeshift catapult. I'll have to keep that in mind for future reference.

    A new strip, YES! ^^

    The first few panels really made me go WHOA. So Vaarsuvius has Empower Spell and Quicken Spell now?

    V's really acting crazy now. I have a feeling he just needs to defeat this devil by himself to prove it to himself that he's still the all-powerful wizard he believes himself to be... Interesting.

    is my favorite. V's prophecy seems like it is going to come true at the end of this story arc. "By saying the four right words to the right being for all the wrong reasons."

    Why does everyone carry Silverd and Cold Iron weapons around? Anyone else remember Halley pulling out Cold Iron and Silver arrows to shoot the flying skank?

    I forsee V getting some very painful/embarrassing comeuppance in the next five comics. She's really asking for it.

    I love how Thor's might is used as a launching pad
    Vaarsivius seems to be running low on diplomacy...

    I'm loving the return to action in this one.

    Beginning to think that this is all coming to a head -- or at least this arc. I suspect, given the giant's past, that it's all going to intersect, and I'm fascinated to see how.
    Aren't all of us "not-nale"?

    Hinjo and Haley are just more prepared then some of the other characters. It is easier for Haley as she can carry a mess of arrows in her quiver and I suppose that Hinjo must be the Boy Scout type. However, note that Lien isn't carrying a silver weapon.

    They're adventurers who believe in being prepared. And so far, Haley and Hinjo have been the only ones who've had both weapon types - Lien doesn't have changeable spear heads, and Roy's only ever used his sword or a club.

    Bypassing damage reduction is a big deal for non casters.

    Indeed, one of the whole points of this story arc seems to be teaching V some humility. Probably by literally beating some sense into him.
    On the plus side, things have pretty much hit rock bottom now. V is objectively obsessed in such a way that is obviously detrimental to others and even his own teammate finally admitted as much. If only because this isn't the kind of condition a story usually drags out, we should be seeing some kind of come-around in the near future.

    So far that's two people, Shinjo has a silver and cold-iron katana each, as well as a steel one (and considering Katanas are pretty much Masterwork bastard swords, that's... not unsurprising for a noble of his stature) and Haley... and what rogue doesn't carry some cold iron or silvered arrows in the mid-high levels?

    Unsuccesfull rogues.
