    I have no idea what Robespierre is trying to do there, but I'm sure it will be great and our heroes will get involved somehow.

    I wonder what kind of riddle Robespierre gave Slobber - and how much time he needed to come up with it.

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    I don’t think Mimic deserves that Roxie. Your brother even warned you not to sit down, but did you listen?

    It seems that participating in the Games isn't very popular. Sounds unpleasant to deadly. Of course our heroes are going to help Robespierre.

    The guy that watches our trio looks suspicious.

    I guess Robespierre just got two volunteers for his team. That noble in the background has to be important. He has been in two panels now. Sure, that doesn't prove anything, but he is the only detailed background-character in those panels.

    I agree whole-heartedly with one of the earlier comments in the thread for this strip - this is a perfect example of how Thieves' Cant would work.
    • Sometimes, the knights are the monsters
    • The main problem with the world? So many grownups, not enough adults.
    • Talk less; say more.
    • George R.R. Martin, Kirkman, and Joss Whedon walked into a bar. There were no survivors.
    • Current Project: Fallout 4 "nerd" build (3/7/2/2/9/3/2, PER 9 after boosts)

    Code speak is always fun, especially if it is done this well.

    And now we know how our clever halflings get involved in Robespierre’s plan.
    This should be fun.
    Well it can't be worse that trying to rob Princess or facing whoever hired them.

    Great idea, making short jokes in front of halflings. Even worse, one of them owns the bar they are in. The only worse place for these comments would be dwarf bar.

    They blackmail him with what now? The math joke? Clever idea, but I always assumed barbarians were allowed to count to three without using their fingers. Still, it might work. Robespierre hasn't that many options for his team.

    Poor Mimic, no one respects him and his cunning plans. He really didn't deserve that. Robespierre should keep the box, you always need some cannonfodder.

    [SPOILER=new comic]Well, that explains what that guy plans. Unfortunate that he heard what Mimic said about building a team.

    And is that the blackguard Cube and Rusty fought in the mob-hideout? I wonder how he will do in a rematch.[SPOILER]

    Well, that should be interesting. I think Malevolus is merely a pawn for the Viscount in some ploy a gainst the Princess. I hope for him that he realizes this before it is to late.
    The barkeep is wispering to some... I don't know what. Are they another faction or do they work for the Princess? Either way they will make this game (the one the Viscount and Malevolus are playing, not the Games Robespierre will participate in) more complicated.
    This will be fun.

    Hey guys! Thanks for supporting Rusty & Co. through thick and thin. Reading everyone's comments has always been the best part of doing the comic.

    I've started a new contest to celebrate a new year: A clever joke or funny pun could win you a Rusty plush! And the more people enter, the more plushes will be given out!

    Check it out, and help spread the word! Thanks again!

    That's what the gnomes want you to think. They use the "harmless illusionist"-act to hide that they are really, really nasty. That makes the "harmless illusionist"-act a illusion. I'm sure they are aware of the irony.

    I'm sure there is a harmless explanation for that. I mean if what just happened is normal for gnomish baseball I certainly wouldn't let somone from another team help me. Or she just has a problem with Roxy and/or her team. Or she interpreted the offer as a insult/threat in some way. But it feels rather sinister.

    A perfect demonstration why no one likes elves. Attacking people who only want to help because they are "unelvish".
    At least those elves from "River of Time" are halfway polite about it. And get friendlier once they know you better.

    How often do you need slurs at your table? I mean no disrespect Athedia, but such sensitive matters (such as racism, adoption and identity issues) need to be handled carefully. My group is...not clear on how comfortable they are dealing with them, so I could use some advice.

    And yes, I have talked about it with the players. I will do so again, I just want to have some more examples and ideas when doing so. I get that it is a sliding scale.
