    Aw damn. I still hope Kubota will die somehow. Soon.

    Good comic though, I loved the punchline.

    Ninja Elan!

    Glad to see that Kubota's not going to get off scot-free. He hasn't had a chance to destroy evidence, plenty of witnesses, etc. etc. He's pretty much done.

    Love the way Kubota waves his arms around in triumph at Elan's impotence to go against his good ideals. Also love the way Elan manages to overcome that impotence ever so slightly. Kubota deserved a punch in the face at the very least. Thanks for the comic, Giant!

    Kubota's "choice" scenario makes a whole lot more sense now: It was made up on the fly. Qarr was supposed to be there to enact whatever his REAL plan was, and didn't show up for some reason. Kubota then bluffed his way through the scene, killing Therkla in the process.

    Not bad, for an improvisation.

    DAMN IT! Story-wise, I'm pleased that Kubota wasn't finished off just like that. But damn it! Seeing Elan pull a Belkar - "I'm Chaotic." - would've been so damn satisfying!

    And another update so soon. Woot. ^^

    So is Kubota facing forward while rowing a mistake, or is it a commentary on how he's unfamiliar with menial tasks?

    But he's Good first, so killing an unarmed man who has surrendered isn't acceptable.

    Many thanks to El Goonish Shive for the banner image.

    Give a player a fish, and he’ll probably try to sell it to an NPC fisherman.

    Teach a player to fish, and next week he’ll show up with the book, “The Complete Adventuring Fisherman”. He’ll start hunting for some monstrous leviathan to catch and enslave, and he’ll be dual-wielding two fishing poles.

    Poor Elan. He just keeps growing frustrated by Kubota's byzantine schemes.

    Bastard or not, Kubota's pretty awesome.

    Or maybe that's wrong word? Anyway, it seems that you don't need class levels to manage with things.

    Nah this is pretty straight forward--he's unarmed and alone, he clearly sees Qarr's ace was trumped so his main target, Hinjo, is still alive, so it makes perfect sense to surrender and live to scheme another day.

    That's what'll be byzantine, his attempt to weasel out of this mess when it goes to the magistrate.


    And wow, fast updates are fast. We're rapidly heading to the conclusion of the story arc here.
