    Haley Starshine for her paranoia.

    Kilkil for his mathematical precision.

    Thor for his exuberance.

    Lien for her disembowelment threats.

    Haley Starshine for being the most effective member of the Order in combat (deals considerable damage and takes very little)

    Mr. Phil Rodriguez because Kilkil has (thusfar) been disappointing.

    Thor because cutaways to Thor never fail to entertain

    Samantha only because Lien has (thusfar) been disappointing, but like Kilkil, is very likely to play a more important role later.

    Haley. Evisceratus might have more of a chance if was in another strip, or had funnier lines.

    Kilkil. Sorry, Phil.

    Thor. If Thor wasn't as... "Thor-ish" as he is, I would pick Inkyrius.

    Lien. Samantha has little chance. Being a whore is that little chance.

    Haley, y'know, treasure isn't really that important.
    Don't EVER say that to me again.

    Haley I refuse to believe someone like Haley would be defeated by a man who was ultimately killed by a cat.
    Mr. Rodriguez A stroke of dumb luck.
    Thor Assuming he would even care to fight a mortal elven baker.
    Samantha As much as I like Lien, Samantha has the advantage: 1) She can fly 2) She has other spells too.
    I know what you're thinking. "Did he prepare six Explosive Runes this morning or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is the 3rd level spell Explosive Runes, the most powerful Abjuration in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

    Since nobody voted for more than two weeks, is it time for another round? Or maybe the official hiatus?

    Probably slowed down since some people probably only check the board when a new comic goes up.

    A new round would be good though.

    Agreed, would be fun to see the next set of pairings.
    78% of all DM's start their first campaign in a tavern. If you're among the 22% who didn't, copy and paste this into your signature and tell us where you DID begin.The players were attacked individually on the road on the way to town by werewolves. To survive, they had to team up then and there without knowing anything about eachother (literally -- all character sheets were completed without other players' knowledge).

    1. Julio Scoundrel. He is at least a character, not a class feature.

    2. Sangwaan. Nice contest. I never liked Tsukiko.

    3. Leeky Windstaff. The largest ham in the entire comic? Yes please. Alas for Jirix.

    4. Roy's Archon. This guy had some nice remarks.

    5. Thanh. Please, please eliminate the psychopath.

    6. Crystal. A tough contest between two dirtbags, Crystal has an outside chance of getting smarter.

    3. Jirix. I prefer him to Leeky. No particular reason.

    4. Miko Miyazaki. You know, the one we've seen on panel long enough to know things about.

    5. Belkar. The only funny thing left in this damn comic strip!

    I never cared much for Julio.

    Sangwaan VS Tsukiko

    Tsukiko was a very annoying character aside from her final appearance.

    Leeky Windstaff VS Jirix

    Short-lived, but memorable.

    Roy's Archon VS Miko Miyazaki

    Whatever people may think of Miko, the arc with her in it was very entertaining.

    Belkar Bitterleaf VS Thanh

    Thanh is one of the less memorable of the Sapphire Guard.

    Crystal VS Girard Draketooth

    Dumb evil never wins.

    Trigak VS Secret SoD Character

    No idea who the latter is.
