    Brutal.

    Saw the elf's line coming, but it still was a great bit.

    Definitely does not forbode well for future normalizing of goblin/Azurite relations.

    I saw it coming too. But, it's a classic that hardly gets old.

    Dang... y'know, that didn't exactly endear me to the elves. Then again, I've always been of the mind elves need to be the ones pushed off high places

    The commander is coolest elf I've seen. Granted, there isn't much competition, but still. That guy is awesome. Plus, he's not a wizard for once in history!

    Yiaiks! That's... Harsh. The previous comic ended in a rather ludicrous/absurdist note, and this one goes way into the serious/cynical end of the scale.

    Although, of course, the elf commander has a point: They cannot risk the hobgobling being a plant... But there will be that nagging doubt: What if he wasn't?

    Slightly depressing gray and gray morality. Which makes it more real, of course

    Oh well... Let's see what happens next!

    It's interesting to see, by the way, how the "action scene" of eliminating all of the goblinoid guards is not shown.

    Wow, that was merciless of that elf.

    I mean, I know it is war, but ... still pretty non-good act.
    I'm impressed that they took over that whole area.

    Yeah I dont think Thanh would like to know about that. Anyway, I saw it coming, I'm surprised the hobgobelin didnt really. And once again, this show that the gobelins at least take prisonners while the «good» guys dont.

    The elves are pretty morally clean, given their track record with both goblins and dragons.

    If Rich didn't want us to consider deep moral issues, he'd be writing gag-a-day strips.

    Anyway, I always knew elves were asshats, nothing new here.

    Don't really care about "morally justified", I still think Elves should be target practice. For dwarves, of course.

    Well, there goes my theory that the Elves wouldn't be jerks like the Sapphire Guard. Good comic, but it would be nice if we met someone who didn't treat Goblins like monsters just because they look different. So far Roy, Durkon, and Elan are the only characters we know of that have ever treated an NPC race like a sentient being with actual worth.

    I could see that coming a mile away, but that does not in anyway diminish how awesome that was. I like that commander guy already, even Roy isn't that ruthless - but he should be!

    Two thumbs way up!

    Oh, sure, the commander elf whacks a goblin prisoner, and he's all cool. But V takes out a few dozen black dragons, and s/he's evil.

    Can we have a temporary lift of the 'morally justified' threads ban?

    Because I think we need it.


    However, I do think that was the wisest course of action, even if I don't agree with that elf's reasons.

    Of course it would be nice, but I don't think expecting elves to do it is such a good idea.
    Looks like OoTS elves continue the tradition of being pricks but getting away with it because they're so darn good lookin'.
