    In that example, it was just some cross looks, since Elan was still ignorant. Now, however, in V's eyes Elan has a clear responsibility that he's been shirking.
    Um, V isn't pissed at Elan for possibly cheating on Haley in #597. Read again. It's more like "what-e-ver". V's only mildly troubled at not getting XP for Therkla.

    Probably, since he was horrified before V even mentioned Haley.

    One thing to say after reading that:

    Holy crap on a stick.

    And is this the first time that V's eyes have changed colour to purple?

    Hinjo: So Elan, what evidence do you have that Kabuto was disintegrated by V?
    Elan: Well, he's not here, for a start.
    Hinjo: I'm afraid evidence of absence is absence of evidence.
    Elan

    Seriously. If Hinjo couldn't take Kabuto to task about his nefarious dealings without proof (other than one persons' word against another), what makes you think he'll bother in this case?

    Because Hinjo can Detect Truth, and also knows Elan is not a liar.

    Also, good ≠ dumb.

    Again, a lot of you kiddies seem to think the populace wouldn't react negatively when a major politician/noble suddenly vanishes. Who's the #1 suspect? Hinjo, and Hinjo saying, "No, for realz, I had nothing to do with it!" won't save him. Especially if people he's associated with are even suspected of doing it.

    V's going to end the civil war - the right thing for the wrong reason, and definitely the wrong method. V is going to end it permanently.

    What does Elan mean when he talks about 'what he has had to give up?' Sex with Therkla? Is that it?

    Gee, I feel for you, Elan. Compared to the people of Azure City who are being used as slaves and tortured every day, you got it rough.

    Of course, this is going to come to nothing. Elan's ability to explain complex situations is on the same level as Thog's. At the end of all this, Hinjo is probably going to be give V an award or something.

    Elan says that he didn't lie to Therkla to keep her alive. He told her the truth, and she decided to die and remain dead rather than have Elan's love.

    He had to have someone he cared about die in his arms.

    And know they'd stay dead.

    It's a little guilt and pain, at least.

    That's sad and everything, but it was Therkla's choice to die. If anyone should be felt sorry for, it's Therkla. (And I don't.)

    In one sense a major thorn in his and his peoples side is gone and V might be a bit dangerous to confront. On the other hand there is the whole Paladin thing, as well as being bound to uphold the laws of Azure City - and it probably would, with Azure City laws, seem Kubota was murdered.

    So if it does come out - does he confront V? Try and exile him? Does he have any wriggle room to ignore or cover up what happened?
    Hinjo : "Vaarsuvius, I arrest you in the name of Azure City for crimes against it's nobles. Come along quietly; you already know I can take a disintegrate spell."

    V: "Yeah, you and what army? Oh, them....um, could I have a few hours to study a different spell list?"

    That Disintegrate spell nearly killed him.

    Intimidate is a cross class skill for a wizard, and is charisma based, which is often a dump stat for a mage [and seems to be for V]. While high Int makes for extra skill points, there are a number of more useful class skills. So V is quite possibly -1 to the roll.

    Logically, it would seem he should conclude from Therkla that he should vigorously pursue such lasses. It was his failure to have his way with Therkla that led to her death. A little slap and tickle and she would have been willing to break from Kubota when it was safer to do so, and it would have allowed her to be raised. [It might also have caused holy hell when Haley finally got back, but Elan is not one for long range planning.]

    Hinjo, as a leader, and not a paladin, would have to be fairly harsh with V, because anything less would be seen by the populace as condoning hiring a mercenary to off a potent rival.

    As a paladin, he'd have to punish evil acts to begin with, but as a leader of a nation, he has to do it to retain the trust of the people.

    He has a choice of imposing his will on V or imposing his will on the people, and he wouldn't even consider the latter.

    If he didn't save he would be a pile of ash on the floor. Like Kubota.

    Nope. He'd take 30d6 damage, which might not be enough to kill him outright if he were lucky. If he saved, he'd take 5d6 damage, which wouldn't knock a decently high-leveled paladin out.

    Is it just me, or does anyone else find it funny that Elan faced down one of his most powerful members by being utterly clueless?

    I thought it was a save-or-die effect... *reads rulebook* ah, I was justly proved wrong.
