    'Disintegrate.' 'Gust of Wind.' That's four words. Perhaps this is the path to ultimate power?

    I wonder how he had blown the armor away.

    Anyway, this is probably the best solution of Kubota problem.

    I think V just voiced an underlying current of opinion in the community.

    Ok, now THAT was pure awesome.

    There does come a time when following the "rules" just gets in the way of things being done properly. Subtlety is for losers.

    Hmm, but they really should have saved that +5 armor that he was wearing instead of letting it get gusted overboard. Heh.

    Whoa. Was that a neutral or evil act? I know it's definitely not Lawful.
    There was nothing unLawful about that, although it may have been illegal. Being Lawful does not mean following the laws! Why is it that every time an OotS character gets a stern look on their face, everyone immediately makes claims about drastic alignment changes? That is NOT the way it works! Geeze.

    I think V might be my favorite character now. Nice move Giant, for the first half of the strip I was groaning and thinking, "Oh boy, he escaped again, now it will take another 100 strips to catch him"...and then awesome ensued. Very nicely done.

    Well, there are definite advantages to being True Neutral/Unaligned.

    'Disintegrate.' 'Gust of Wind.' That's four words. Perhaps this is the path to ultimate power?
    Don't think so. They need to be said to the right person at the right time for the wrong reasons. I don't think, from a neutral standpoint, that this would be considered "wrong". Depends on Elan and Durkon's reactions.

    Wow. That was... awesome. OOTS seems to be sticking to the traditional D&D class system, where the higher level you get, the more and more the wizard becomes the most vital member of the party...

    Can't help but think V might be due some sort of comeuppance one of these days, though. S/he is starting to get a little too fond of hir own power.

    I can't be the only one who thinks Vaarsuvius executing a helpless man and then destroying the evidence is not a good thing.

    I mean, yeah, it ended the problem of Kubota, but I think the problem of Vaarsuvius is just beginning.
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    Definitely a neutral act. True neutral, perhaps.
    While part of me is quite glad that V nipped that trial in the bud, the other part is cringing at what is to come and poor Elan is going to be caught in the middle.
