    Ouch .

    I'm glad we get to hear more about Haley's father though, I love it when questions I've had for a long time get answered.

    EDIT: I like the title repitition too (428 is also called "It takes a thief")

    Uh oh, this doesn't look good. I hope she doesn't die, since we've been through all this with Roy before. How will the cavalry come to save the day I wonder...

    Wow, what a surprising end...

    Does that mean he actually IS 4 levels higher than her? Sounds like more than a tough fight even under fair conditions, but she didn't really stand a chance under this circumstances, not even remotely. Quite distressing.

    FoE's right - this isn't looking so good! I'm hoping we don't get left on a cliff-hanger here and switch back to Roy/Elan/V/anyone else.

    So Haley's entire backstory situation is a result of Bozzak's scheming? That's pretty cool. She's still in deep trouble.

    Holy mother of all things sacred... we are loosing main characters here. Someone get in here!!! Come on Elan you know she is in trouble use the 'way of the Plot' to discern her location and somehow telephone in (wishful thinking).

    Man, that sneak attack really surprised me. Good comic Giant.

    Man, we need some Dwarf Ex Machina right about now.

    Still, I have to applaud The Giant's weaving of exposition into action - it's always been a strength of his, and it works great!

    Also: I find his depiction of tumbling hilarious for some reason. Particularly when a big Half-Orc Fighter/Rogue is doing it

    When he said Rapid XP gain at the end, he obviously meant that he's considered a rival like Crystal is, so whenever Haley gained a level so did he. And since he's older than her he'd most likely be higher leveled than her to begin with, so it's plausible.

    At least due to the fact that she doesn't have X's in her eyes we know she's alive (barely). Way to keep us hangin' on the edge of our seats, Mr. Burlew! You know how to deliver!

    Yeah, I'll be surprised if anyone hates this one for any reason other than hating to see Haley beaten or suffering.

    Ummm... nope. I belive that he meant that killing thieves who try to leave the guild is not only profitable but has given him enough XP to be 4 levels higher than Haley.

    What he actually meant was an answer to Haley's question as to why he feels it necessary to KILL all non-Guild thieves, rather than just drive them away. He gains XP from personally offing them, allowing him to have progressed much higher in level than Haley.

    No. It's longer and thinner, and you can't wield greatswords one-handed. I'd say it's a Bastard Sword (as opposed to all the Katanas we saw in Azure City).

    At least she's alive AND said "resurrection(s)" AND we got to hear a bit mor about her father. I'm more and more curious about it.

    Actually, I'm pretty sure he was referring to the fact that all the rogues he killed were a good source of experience.

    Which means he's like LV 17... or higher. Man, Greysky City is home to some powerful characters
