    Yeah...I don't think I want to know the story behind that. And damn, this whole escaping thing is starting to get old. Let's hope they end up next to Xykon or something.

    And hey, Tarquin doesn't have his axe anymore.

    Well... depending on where they're being teleported, there's as much as a 23% chance that something'll go not as planned with the spell.

    Retreat, and Tarquin cared enough to actually save Nale. Unexpected.
    He left behind Malak. Also unexpected.
    All in all, I like this strip. Quite suspenseful, and it is nice to see the order actually being successful for once.
    Horses have an even number of legs. Behind they have two legs, and in front they have fore legs. This makes six legs, which is certainly an odd number of legs for a horse. But the only number that is both even and odd is infinity. Therefore, horses have an infinite number of legs.

    I don't get the "drinking fountain bit". It's clearly a dirty joke of some kind, but I can't figure it out.

    Edit: Oh, I think I got it now...

    I'm glad the Order won this skirmish and all, but I was really hoping to see Elan do something in the battle! Hopefully he's off doing something relevant because his complete absence in this scene is kind of disappointing.

    Very nice comic! The art of Tarquin throwing his axe was well done.

    That was somewhat unexpected. I wonder where the LG ended up? Did T really choose N over M? And T just ditched his old ax? That seems a bit off, but.....

    This is getting interesting -- I have the feeling this is just a short diversion and, dispite appearences their more going on here than we know... but then what do I know?

    Interesting comic -- thanks!

    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).

    Huh. Didn't expect a complete withdrawal. Although it may not be complete until we see where they end up.

    I like this comic, but I'm sure a lot of people are going to grumble about Tarquin knowing Drow-cant or whatever its called, despite how rationally its explained :P

    Another great one, Giant. What will Malack do now? And where the heck is Elan? I wonder if they will finally be able to figure out that it's Tarquin from the axe.

    I'll just make a note for everyone questioning the decision to leave Malak behind; since Z doesn't have line of effect to him, he can't include him in the Teleport.

    All weapons are throwing weapons, even people are throwing weapons. Now maybe Durkon can have a nice conversation and try and smooth things over

    This is why I still consider it one of my best decisions as a DM to put a blanket ban on all spells with the teleport subtype.

    Basically, any arcane caster with access to 4th level spells is never truly in danger, considering he's just a somatic-componentless spell away from safety (barring very elaborate setups, traps or enemies wasting turns trying to lock him down). Fights get a lot more tension when neither side has an instantaneous escape route available and retreats become risky endeavors.

    The next question is.. are there any weapon-teleporting enchantments? Or did the Order get an axe for good?

    Man, somehow I imagine Durkon being soulspliced with Kraagnar..

    Woah, fast update! Hmm, I must say I didn't expect them retreating either but as usual, Tarquin manages to give it some style

    Now, the question is whether or not they're out of the game for Girard's gate yet (Thus remains the meeting of the Order and Malack, who probably won't attack them if his team has been routed), or if Tarquin will soon be back and take the lead.

    If it was a greataxe, Belkar can't use it unless he has a feat (forgot how it's called). But it could've been a battleaxe, in that case it's possible but not really likely, I agree.
