    Were those sound effects really necessary?

    Awesome, anyway.

    5. Ouch. At least we got to see what he looks like without his glasses. Today is just not his day.

    This new Belkar is really creepy. I could have sworn he simply never stopped smiling throughout the whole thing.

    It seems Belkar has really taken "Shojo's" lesson to heart. As in, he had a chance to abandon Haley, but he didn't.

    Well, Pete did get to keep his eyes for the rest of his life...

    Now the Belkar rescue mission now becomes better and worse. If Crystal and Bozzak can flank a lone Belkar, he is dead meat fast with some horrible number of d6 sneak damage. But there is an increased chance of his getting to attack with surprise, or at least not getting ambused and surprised himself.

    I hope Cleric of Loki doesn't vanish altogether. (He's one of my favourite characters.) At least it looks as though he'll survive, even though he probably didn't get paid.

    Wow. Me like. Nice and vengeful.

    Even if I WAS hoping the Cleric would join them for a bit. STill betting he's a CN cleric of Loki though.

    I like the title:

    "Technically, the "Fish" Version is a Subset of This One"

    Because teaching a man to fish IS using violence to solve his problems--it's just violence against the fish, which non-vegans deem socially acceptable.

    Belkar has somehow become even more...Belkarish with his fake character development.

    Awesome comic, laughed out loud at Belkar's new phrase. Something really does seem different about Belkar, oddly... He just seems more gleeful. But maybe I just think that because it's been so long since I've seen him doing anything other than lie still and puke.

    Unfortunate that CoL left him before the confrontation with Bozz and Crystal... now who will wake up Haley to have her final showdown with her teenage enemy?

    Anyway, I really hope the next update comes quickly, because I can barely contain my curiosity.

    Belkar and Mr. Scruffy frolicking off to do more violence?

    If you doubt it, ask the fish.

    This was the first comic I laughed aloud at the end of in quite awhile. Although I am sorry to see the cleric go away I really don't think he and Durkon would get along....

    Awesome punchline from . and it looks like Mr. Scruffy got some blood on his eyebrows on panel 4.

    Durkon didn';t have enough Religion ranks before to know that Thor and Loki are rivals (he has gained at least 2 levels since then, though).

    that was the most warped aesop i have ever seen, and i am quite thoroughly disturbed. AWESOME.

    though, if this is belkar's new way of doing things, i fear for intelligent life everywhere

    So in Belkar's case, "less one-dimensional" means "Darker and Edgier". He's actually found another thing that he enjoys more than wanton killing - convincing someone else to get his hands dirty instead.

    If the cleric doesn't stay around, though, then Team Haley will again need to reach Durkon in order to raise Roy.

    Excellent comic. Well, too bad the Cleric didn't join up with the party, but you can't have everything.
