I love both this and the previous strip!
However the battle ultimately ends up, Roy's initial ambush is nothing short of brilliant: In a matter of moments, he has leveled the playing field -- and more -- to balance out V's absence. And placing Belkar within range of Durkon's Holy Word (and thus giving him resistance/immunity to certain spells) was a masterstroke!
EDIT: Oh yeah. I absolutely loved Roy's comment at the end. That was a laugh-out-loud moment.

When I saw the name of the comic, at first I thought it was referring to someone in the LG. The real meaning is better.
Ditto! It took me a moment to figure out why Belkar couldn't hear Nale, but when I did, I couldn't help but laugh out loud (again).
