    I like how Belkar thinks the gate exploded... Funny short guy.

    Also, V's line about audio is funny.

    Edit: I was online and posted this as soon as I finished reading, and guess what? I wasn't ninja'd 14 times!

    So do you think Girard will actually respond? Or is he going to just hang out and wait? Not sure how the story is going to move forward, but I'm excited to see what happens.

    Girard is probably dead, that's my guess. Can people who die from old age be reanimated? Preferably as something that keeps its spellcasting levels?

    Also, by zooming in, I have determined that BW is saying, "whisper whisper whisper whisper".

    EDIT: Dart! Foiled again.

    "And that would be wrong."

    I liked that line.

    Still no obvious path for the story to take right now, what with no idea where to look for the gate, but I suspect a sideplot may be forced upon them.

    And I hope Roy gets to call Girard out.

    Yep, although I feel that it's not as much affecting V as telling V what to say... Assumingly, V is influenced by the coaching, but we're not getting huge signs as to how much...

    Judging by how paranoid Girard's just shown himself to be, I wouldn't bet on his reaction to the message in the sand being friendly. On the other hand, the Order seems to be out of places to go if Girard simply ignores them.

    I wonder how that was supposed to convince V that it would be wrong.

    He didn't convince me, that's for sure.

    Interesting to note that Elan, Haley and Vaarsuvius all survived Girard's little nuke. Kind of provides fuel for both sides of the "Girard is an idiot" argument, because if that explosion couldn't even take out V or Haley there's no way it would have hurt Soon--therefore, either Girard was being an idiot for placing such a weak explosion, or all the people who said the explosion was nothing more than a warning that was never intended to kill anyone are correct!

    Heh, very good strip. V's jokes were great. I'm quite tempted to sig her line about explosions solving social situations.
