Re: Does anyone else really want Tarquin to get absolutely bashed in?
I actually believe that in another clash (and probably final) with the Order of the Stick, Tarquin is left with a choice to either kill Elan or Nale.
For a parent, it is a really hard decision. It's one thing to have conflicts between two children, but it is really hard to participate in that conflict, knowing that you're going to have to make a difficult decision.
But who knows how it'll turn out.
