    Giant, you made me laugh in a strip where you are trying to kill Elan! That's just not fair!

    If you're right, I'd say Rodriguez is the anti-Durkon, because Jones is bald.

    I expect Haley to hit Sabine with arrows, actually (she is likely high enough level to have a feat that lets her hit Sabine without risking hitting Elan), that will annoy Sabine enough to attack Haley or scare her enough to fly away. Either way, Elan gets dropped. Then Elan lands on the soft lawyers, safe.

    Also Elan has taken quite a few negative levels, but probably not much HP damage at all. He could easily survive a fall from a great height. (Really he should have looked down, noticed Durkon, and jumped).

    It is a running joke that the flumphs show up when someone is falling. This is just a variation on the joke.

    I agree; after all, he was just on the brink of finishing it. It's really annoying to have it left as a cliffhanger.

    Wrong. They need the Order of the Stick to keep Team Evil from winning, because whatever their plan is, it relies on the conflict between the two sides continuing.

    Huh? #764 came out on December 9th.

    EDIT: Fun Fact: The record keeper for longest absence in terms of strip # is still V, I think. (#508-553) Just barely, though.

    EDIT2: Nevermind. If you don't count flashbacks or hypothetical scenes (or the Durkon drawing), the longest absence is Elan and Durkon. (#599-646)

    I wonder what Durkon is researching...

    Just missed the rule of threes on Nale getting cut off unless I Nale got cut off once the last time he was chasing Elan off a ledge. Regardless, I like the reversal of expectations with the lawyers getting crushed. The Flumphs usually get squished by a normal weighted character. Those lawyers got wrecked.

    Here's a question: what happens to a person's soul while they're petrified? Does it count as dying and as a result they end up in their alignment-based afterlife?

    Or does something else happen? Note, to be precise: I am asking about the time they are a statue, not if the statue breaks or something--that's an obvious death plus probably a need for True Resurrection.

    A character is not "dead" while a statue, merely alterered. Classically, they are still aware of what goes on around them and can still see and hear, but cannot move their eyes or, obviously, speak.

    When Haley is Stone to Fleshed, she will retain all memories of her time in the stone.
