    Cute. Go Celia, distraction FTW.

    Loot concerns aside, what is their interest in Celia?

    Yes, but they were interested in her before the loot became apparent.

    She owes their paying client, Grubwiggler, one corpse (preferably hers). They intend to retrieve it for him.

    Heh, first time the comic's ever updated while I was reading it.
    Wouldn't a better tactic be for Celia to use non-lethal spells on some of the enemies? She's a sorcerer, correct? And it seems to me like a sorcerer who is so adamantly against violence would choose some non-lethal spells... Glimmerdust, maybe? Grease? Sleep? Obscuring Mist was a pretty good choice...
    Maybe, since she's a sylph, she doesn't get to choose her spells, but still. She must have -something- to throw at them while she buzzes around, doing her best not to get stabbed.

    She probably does, and we'll see it next time. Everything can't be crammed into the same strip, you know.

    OK, that was brilliant!

    Celia, nice job puttin' that high fallutin' schoolin' to work for you. Hopefully Haley can recover in time to keep her from getting caught.

    Hard economic times, indeed.

    Nicely done, Rich!

    I can't help but wonder where the other guild members are, and whether Celia's going to fly herself into a cul-de-sac.

    Does lightning bolt require a reflex save? If so, hers is most likely not that high. Rogues have an ability called evasion that lets them take no damage on a successful reflex save (in cases where they would normally take half damage).

    It's a shame Belkar wasn't present. It would have been interesting to see how he reacted fighting another halfling.

    I didn't find this comic that funny, except for Haley suddenly healing her wounds when mentioning she could've dodged it (which was already done in an early strip) and the "Power attack!" (which was funny, but not too funny). Honestly, I was expecting a double-length strip considering how long a time there was between the strips.

    Then again, I've been dissatisfied by this entire arc, because it involved Celia getting the Idiot Ball for no reason other than to drag this plotline out.

    I'm just hoping that we can finish with this quickly and finally get back to the plot of getting Roy rezzed so we can finally get back to the plot we haven't done anything with in about 100 comics.

    The fighter program's something interesting I wouldn't have guessed--gives the Guild plenty of muscle for shaking down the town, and certainly helped here.

    Hopefully the capture lines'll keep our sylph safe.

    So far the fight goes as expected. [and as expected, in unexpected ways] Haley is making a good fight of it, but is getting beat up. We still must wait to see if V shows, Durkon gets the message, or ...
