    If I remember aright, the half-celestial theory has been put forward because Haley shares a hairstyle (including stray hair) with at least one female celestial we have seen portrayed and, more importantly, because in #681 we saw a flashback of her as a child being reprimanded by her father for telling a friendly stranger that "Mommy went to heaven last year." I'm not sure how many people take this theory seriously, though. I think most references to it are at least half-joking.

    Edit: regarding this:

    Ladybird is actually the original word. I know they say that in the UK. It wouldn't surprise me if they did in Ireland, Canada, and/or Australia as well.

    Does it matter if the Potion was a Philter? I was looking back 2 comics and the tag said Philter. but was crossed out and had Potion written instead. May change the effects of the anti-magic strip?

    And probably now sitting there, playing with his puppets... maybe even get an homage to Spaceballs: The Movie.

    <as girly voice with a Puppet> "Ooooo, Elan, you're so strong and powerful."
    <in extra deep voice with an Puppet> "That is because I'm a single class Bard, instead of an over complicated cross class bonanza."
    <in whiney, squeeky voice as Puppet> "Hey, I didn't think of that til you said something"
    <In extra deep voice as Puppet> "And so, you lose... and so shall our father... For I am smart, and brave, and handsome, and charming, and awesome>
    <In Giggly Voice as Banjo Puppet> "Don't forget to whistle to warn about the guards and your father behind you..."
    "Huh?" <<looking behind himself> "Did you guys see all that?"
    :tarquin: "No, Son, we didn't see you playing with your puppets again."
    "Good." <Then starts whistling like crazy>

    Yes... 1) It is a joke, because when they changed editions in D7D, they fixed all philtre to be potions, 2) The reason for the editions made the change is because technically a Philtre is a Love Potion, so even a Philtre of Love is technically redundant since it would be a Love Potion of Love, and everything else that was a Philtre would be a Love Potion of <whatever>... so a Philtre of Strength is a Love Potion of Strength, and a Philtre of Glibness would be a Love Potion of Glibness (which only makes sense for the last panel of the first strip in which Haley is using it. 3) It wouldn't change the effects, just the silliness of calling anything besides a Love Potion a Philtre, and to be accurate to the naming scheme for the D&D Edition they're currently using.

    I'd say that Belkar stole the show here with his 'fatherland' joke, but Ian's 'lousy' quip is even better. Now, who is in charge of the Order again?

    He's not delusional. Like the comic title states, Ian's version of events actually makes a lot more sense than what really happened -- "We wandered into a country halfway around the world from our home, and for reasons that have nothing to do with our mission here, half the people we meet are one of our dads."

    I like how both Tarquin & Ian thinks that their respective kid is THE leader of the group, when this really isn't the case .

    Oh well, I guess that in a D&D world, the highest wish of any parent would be for their kid to be a protagonist, eh?

    Lets see...Ian's Highly suspicious nature making him believe the rules of Drama and Plot are just the outcome of someone's somewhere's manipulation.

    And this entire chapter is based off of the Rule of Drama, which Elan treats as his dogma.

    SOmething tells me this means Ian is going to be either Highly suspicious of Elan, or believe he is the GOod equivelant of the evil genius his father is, and the stupid act is just a facade.

    Yeah...but Nale's pretty stupid, too.
    Then again, he managed to fool Haley with his "I recognized my feelings for you when I nearly died at the hands of my handsome brother Nale...that I didn't much earlier probably is due to my childlike persona..." - speech, so one could think he is as intelligent as her.
    However, Haley does have the excuse of being in love with Elan.
    The description in the PHB of a person with Hi Int and low Wis being a "mad scientist" type fellow leads me to believe Elan has low int and decent wisdom (he seems to notice alot, he just doesnt understand it) while Nale has a High Int and low Wis (he understands complicated things, but is completely aloof to anything but his own little world)

    And yet the father of the REAL leader considers him to be a huge disappointment. Can't say I blame Eugene, though.

    We've not seen Elan for one whole strip, God knows what stupid things he'd done outside the prison cell by now... Maybe a female prison guard is involved.

    Pretty funny comic. Can't wait to see what Elan's gotten himself up to, and how Ian reacts to him.

    I doubt Elan would do that to Haley, considering the only other time he made out with someone was before he knew Haley liked him.

    Oh, and that one time on new years, but that was still before he knew Haley liked him. Knowing Elan, he's still probably gotten into some wacky hijinks
