    nale told thog ''Dont drop soap''

    Priceless.

    Anyway I'm beginning to wonder how Elan expect to save Haley, she is unarmed and Thog is obviously still loyal to Nale. If he get angry, he can easely take care of Elan even if he dont have a weapon. Its a 3vs2 and except if the rest of the order come in the room, Elan and Haley wont stand a chance.

    Meh, they probably didn't feel like bothering, since he's just a bard.

    Still, great strip. Loved it. Can't wait for the next one--although I'm really looking forward to the Nale-Elan-Haley-Succubus confrontation, so I'm hoping the flashback doesn't last too long.

    "My Haley". Awesome! Go save your lady... erm, Rogue!

    Perhaps it's being stupid that gives Elan the ability to manipulate others' stupidity. He tells a story that HE would buy, and the more idiotic idiots around him buy it with add-ons.





    Awesome!

    Great comic.

    Elan always had good moments when it came to Bard Stuff, understanding plot or story or how adventures have to work. Look at origins of the PCs: Without Elan's knowledge, Roy would never have recruited the Order of the Stick. As a Human Bard, he's getting a few skill points every level, and his base CHA is 18; no surprise that he can pull off a good Bluff now and then. Good for Elan. :)

    He and Thog should make a great team.

    "My Haley", eh? Looks like each strip with Elan in jail and escaping adds another hint that he may have finally caught on. Great strip, Thog's raging was scaaaaary...lets just hope he never does it in combat against the OOTS.

    The best. The absolute best. Strip. Ever. There are simply too many Lol moments, character development points, and excellent plotting to discuss here. There could be a "Best Strip Ever Poll" tomorrow and this would get my vote without the slightest hesitation.

    Can't wait to see Pompeey try to get in their way... I can only assume that he was dealt with during the escape because otherwise he would have warned Nale.

    What fun! Sure, this comic probably didn't need to be triple-length, but a lot of the humor is in the dialogue and it turned out great. The rythm of this strip is wonderful; Thog and Elan really play off of each other well. That said, it was a bit predictable, a tad drawn out, and it really stretches the limit of believability. Still, one of the funniest strips in a while warranting an 8/10

    To paraphrase the legendary Principal Snyder of Sunnydale High: "In case you haven't noticed, the police of Cliffport are *deeply* stupid." Give Elan credit for coming up with an approach that dealt with the limitations of both Thog and his captors. Now--for the rocket skates and the leprechaun costume. . .

    Plain exposition that seems a little long at first glance, but plenty of good jokes to make it a solid contribution.

    I'd not have credited Thog with the intellect to know what a lover was. Heh. Oh, and the lantern over Elan's head? Priceless. Please do that again in the future. Hooray for avoiding anachronisms!

    Just out of curiosity, was the original script in any way amusing? Like, perhaps enough to be included as bonus material in whatever book this ends up in?

    Now if and could get a strip together (not "do" a strip together), I'd be in nirvana.

    Since Thog has shown some rudimentary taste where music is concerned, does anyone care to speculate about his motivation for singing ...that?
