    Heh, nice strip. Clearly Haley is annoyed because we weren't supposed to know what she was up to until the very end, if at all.

    On a different note, in panel 7 Ian mentions his "team". I don't think there are such larger groups among the gladiators. A little bit of foreshadowing there, perhaps?

    In that city, telling someone that there may be a fresh body in the family tomb isn't such a good idea.

    Ian is as good a person as Haley is. And I like Haley.
    Right, because leaving the city was totally not an option.

    No, really. It´s only a fortunate coincidence that we all came to the Empire, and that Elan, the bard of my group and Haley´s boyfriend, was Tarquin´s son. But thanks to that, the rest of my companions are in the palace and awaiting my orders.

    Ian: Ahh, now it´s clear
    (sniff... my little kitty has finally grown up... now she is a mastermind!)
    ""Jeez, this dress! i look like a dominatrix""
    (self-loathing): ""Actually , you look like a sorceress or something""
    ""Hey, no need to get cruel""

    Would be hard to be as evil as Tarquin or as bad a parent as Roy's father.

    Well, that was done quite quickly and with a minimum amount of exposition. And I'm laughing my head off at Ian's perfectly reasonable view that Haley arranged all this. It really is more probable than the true explanation.

    Respectfully,

    It goes deeper than that. You really think Rich Burlew is in charge of the plot here?

    He works for Haley.

    Well come on... you totally set yourself up for it :)

    I mean Elan has pulled Banjo, Banjulhu, and Giggles...

    It was just too good to pass up on.

    Now watch Eugene show up when Roy gets out of the anti-magic field and Polozius turn out to be V's step-parent.

    That's just what Shojo, Mr. Scruffy's biological father, thinks.

    Y'know, I would actually call it the Dadland instead of the Fatherland, I bet it would've been a much friendlier country.

    And also, when the hell was the last time did anyone refer to the Order of the Steick by name like Roy there? (aka Roy Buzzkillington Gongsho)

    Of course. Why would a long-time prisoner of Tarquin the Empress of Blood and Tyrinar the Bloody believe that the official leader is actually in charge?

    Haley is not especially intelligent. She's not stupid, but Roy is the one with the 18 INT.

    Hey, it's not his fault that celestials and half-celestials have well-known weaknesses. If Haley lets too many people know about her genetic background, soon everyone will know the proper weapons and spells to equip before trying to kill her.

    Hang on, where was it stated that Roy had 18 INT? I don't own any of the books, yet, so it would be good to know.

    The mindflayer thing. It was explained later that he was more well rounded in all 3 mental stats giving him the highest overall mind, and in fact did not have the highest int. That's vaarsuvius with the 18. At different points in the strip it's been pointed out that Roy has had the option to become a wizard or cleric, suggesting that his int is fairly high. "You have the wisdom for it" was said specifically of cleric-ness.
