    How in the Hells did he drag that thing!?!

    EDIT: Oh, right. He moved the body. Also good strip.

    The Impossible Thing Before Breakfast- "The GM is the author of the story and the players direct the actions of the protagonists." Widely repeated across many role-playing texts. Neither sub-clause in the sentence is possible in the presence of the other.

    Nice. Therkla deserves to be remembered in style.

    Probably not, since she was both a worshipper of the 12 Gods and not Lawful Good (not personally sure exactly where she falls, but Lawful Good is definitely not it).

    I wish the comic hadn't been used to make a Roy love fest.

    I'm fairly sure Roy would have bungled things worse if Belkar is any indication.

    heh. I was almost expecting something a bit more tear-jerking when I started to read it...but this was almost as good. The last panel definitely made up for a horrid night at work.

    Uh, he didn't, he just buried her under it. And then scaled it and carved an inscription into its chest.


    Better hope no one comes along and uses Stone to Flesh, else that demon is gonna have a funky looking scar.

    Also, I'm getting the feeling that Hinjo might not be as pissed as we thought. Maybe.

    Uh, he didn't drag it at all, he buried Therkla at its foot. The rope is so he could climb up and use his rapier to carve the words.
    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.

    It was nearby, he didn't have to drag it anywhere...

    I thought it was pretty sad that Elan rambled about Roy and himself at Therkla's eulogy, but whatever I guess it's the intention that counts...

    "I'm not a hero, I just play one in a comic strip." Pure. Gold. And despite his fumbling, Elan managed to do a pretty good job of the eulogy...

    [EDIT]We already knew the year was 1184 from strip #489, because it's on the graph showing Belkar's evil quotient.

    Okay, so now I want a 30-meter high devil statue (preferably one made from a real devil) for my headstone. Stop putting these ideas in my head, mr. Giant!

    Roy's in the Lawful Good afterlife (The Seven Mounting Heavens of Celestia, "officially").

    Therkla more than likely wasn't Lawful Good.

    That was a nice little touch with Kazumi's tear of joy - presumably Durkon was checking that Baby Kato was okay.

    Edit: Typo. I know how to spell "Therkla" really

    Elan is nice. If people would be as kind and caring as he is, the whole world would be a much better place to live in.

    And yes, KICKASS headstone. Props for that one!

    I have nothing too exciting to say. Just another, "Awww."

    Poor Therkla. Poor Elan. Lucky V, looks like he's going to get away with that.

    Reunion soon? Yes?

    Did the spell Vaarsuvius used to petrify the devil kill it or merely petrify it.

    Because in the latter case. No the devil would be trapped in his stone body. Unless someone broke the spell.
    If it killed the devil: No, the devil would be forced to stay in hell for the next 100 years. Elan probably isnt going to live that long.

    Having a petrified devil as a headstone to someone who died in the arms of the lover she could never have seems to be tempting fate a bit. I'm sure there is some kind of undead spirit for these sort of occasions.
