    That's certainly taking a third option!

    I wonder what this means if Haley/Belkar has already killed Crystal and Bozzak...

    You know, if Haley manages to beat Crystal and Bozzak, I could see that happening.

    You see it coming a mile away. As soon as they mention contracts. Not that that's a bad thing. But still very predictable. Amongst other things, it leads one to beleive Hank is going to be the new guildmaster, and that Celia is going to draft up new procedures so that Haley Isn't killed for having left the city.

    Woot for Celia! The old act was getting stale. She doesn't have to be an ass-kicker, but she needs to be somewhat useful. And once again, she is!

    I also chuckled at Roy's reference to the fact that Sylphs are usually small-sized.

    Not what I expected, but here is to hoping Belkar gets in on the guild action.

    I mean they do induct fighters now, and he is a bad ass and all. Plus you know, murder.

    He's a good fit.

    Celia, not an adventurer - even in the midst of the bloody retirement party for much of this thieves' guild, she finds a third way beyond kill or be killed. *Very* nice twist there, Giant.

    Is the fighter guy dead? What Celia did? I had to read her speech 3-4 times to make its sense. Nice.

    And here I thought there were gods specifically dedicated to forgiving.

    Thieves against a lawyer... anyone want to take money on who loots whom?

    Long odds are on the thieves.

    No, just knocked to the floor. Probably due to surprise.

    I dunno, so far lawyers seem to be pretty powerful. Especially the ones sent by the spooky wizard who lives by the coast.

    Celia, you dummy! Hank just said nobody leaves the Guild except in a casket, but he didn't say anything about the Guild's members protecting each other. With that bit about possessions reverting to the Guild upon death, the only thing that's gonna keep Haley alive by doing this is the fact that she's recently gone bankrupt on a couple of occasions.

    Yor's fine. Celia only knocked him away with her lightning. He's not even unconscious - you can see he seat on the floor behind Roy's astral form in the last panel.

    Celia apparently want to take advantage of the new fact that Celia is still a Guild member, for good or worse. Either she hopes to convince the Guild to give her some sort of late benefits, or just to stall for time until Haley and/or Belkar arrive.

    Well that made no sense. Celia has nothing to bargain with, and the halfling isn't in a position to neogotiate anything on behalf of the Guild. What game is Rich playing here?

    I certainly wasn't expecting that - will Haley be rejoining the Thieves' Guild? I wonder what Celia's got up her fey sleeves...

    BTW, we need a Celia smiley, don't we?
