    This is a perfect comic for us. Two long-running and much-missed running gags combined... Brava. Thank you, Giant.

    Excellent comic, I particularly enjoyed Elan's celestial tree sloth attack. Sometimes I forget he has spells.

    So, why's Sabine suddenly very upset with Elan?

    Is an (illusory) celestial tree sloth really that bad?

    I still hope he will bring Malack into the Nale-stomping battle.

    1: She was made a fool of. Again, if only for a moment or two.
    2: Celestials, especially summoned ones, are a nuisance more than a threat. An attack sloth (a non-giant-ground-sloth, at any rate) doubly so.

    Hahaha, nice. That's what they get for taking away that poor illithid!

    Plus, they're indirectly responsible for Zz'dtri's grudge, which caused Haley to be petrified in the first place. So, really, this is only fair.

    Qarr pissed her off last strip, and she said she was really in the mood to kill something.

    It's got to be cathartic for her, what with her previously expressed desire to kill something as soon as possible.

    As for the sloth, I find it to be a little bit of an oxymoron to have a celestial version of a creature named after one of the deadly sins.

    That certainly didn't help but her problem with Elan is that he just cause a fight between her and Nale.

    Very nicely done again. Love how Sabine totally fails her will save against the illusion.

    Now, I wonder how things will turn out for Elan, he already accumulated alot of negative levels there.

    No, seriously, he's going to be putting the hurting on something soon. Right after un-petrifying Haley.

    See panel 6. He makes things complicated for her.

    I'm guessing that the problem is that Nale is obsessed with killing Elan. She wants to finish his vendetta so that they can move on with the relationship. Nothing personal against him.
