    What is Bartervault closest to?
    Looks like Thane City to me.

    Belkar's motto is "When in doubt, set [something/it] on fire." Can you find me an example of him saying that, an example of him doing that, and an example of him saying and doing that?

    Here is both.

    Setting it on fire is the bandit camp.

    When in doubt, set it on fire, right?

    Who might be called bluehilt?

    The fighter following Elan if Tarquin gets Roy and Vaarsuvius and Greg killed. See #917 eighth and ninth panels, when Tarquin explains “the next tavern you visit will have 2–4 new companions near the same level just hanging around. And I'm sure Rob Redblade and Murkon Lightninghammer will be fine additions to your team.”

    If that's correct (I'm not quite sure) then the new question is: find a character with their eyes replaced by five-pointed stars, cartoon fashion. (I stipulate five-pointed stars to exclude Haley and Belkar with the cross painted on his eyes with an eyeliner.)

    That fighter might be called Rob Redblade. This guy has a blue hilt (if the name were not enough). Also he is not a fighter. I say, no, that does not count.

    And to answer your question, Haley, after buying some wands.

    Hmm. So it's not Bluepommel either. We'll have to search in Azure city then, it has the most blue things. How about Azurite soldier with a sword in #436 seventh panel? The same guy also appears in #433 and #438, and #440 then reveals that there's a whole troop of soldiers with identical blue swords. One is still there in #446. #447 then shows that some of the paladins in the throne room have blue hilts too. So it's your choice now.

    Yes, that's what I was thinking of.

    Update: oh right, maybe you were thinking of Miko, since her katana has a blue hilt too.

    I was actually thinking of Hak-Tonag the moderately incontinent. The ones you provided work as well. I suppose it is your question, unless you don't want to ask one, in which case I likely will.

    If you don't: What takes only two words to say in common, and paragraphs to say in some other language.

    Hmm, so nobody else took the question? In that case, new question.

    Find someone casting a lightning spell with the visuals actually showing zig-zagging lines as if the lightning was starting, but then we find out that the spell is actually counterspelled. This is very much unlike the expected visuals such as #166 where the counterspelled Chain Lightning produces no visible lightning effect at all.

    Maybe it's the art upgrade?

    OQ for now-- I have a question in mind but it'll take me a minute to verify it.

    Well, I couldn't find the item I was looking for, but I remembered another one I wanted to ask.

    The demon roaches usually talk in asides, to each other, or to the audience. Can you find me two different examples of characters engaging in conversation with them directly, who aren't Redcloak or Xykon? (I actually don't know if they ever do, but I didn't want to look through every strip to be sure.)

    One of them must be #541 with the monopoly roaches, since the MitD replies to them to make a bet. The other is the earthquake scene, where the demon roaches are the ones who teach the MitD the stomp ability, and the MitD replies to them. (He also replies in the last panel of that strip.) OQ.

    If it's not breaking the "re-asking the same question" rule, we can go with "Find an example of a character not in Team Evil talking to the demon roaches." Otherwise I'll try to look for the first one I was thinking of.

    Is Jirix on team evil?
    And Miko definitely isn't.

    If correct, find me someone whose eyes are pink wearing one of those helmets that only leave a T-shaped part of the face visible.

    Neither does Jirix. Did you misread the question as "acknowledge the existence of"?

    According to Inkscape, yes it does.

    Because it is an OQ though,

    Find a bright-ish orange cloak, on a dwarf.

    Maybe it's just me but that strikes me as being so subjective (bright-ish?) as to be indistinguishable from the previous question. Can you include something else to be clear?

    Eh, I don't really know what else to include. Maybe the answer, the dead dwarf from 0874? If anyone else has a question, ask it.

    In that case, find 5 “Durkons” in one panel.

    Darn. That wasn’t why I was thinking of, but it definitely counts.

    Taking OQ. Find exactly 5 Durkons in a single panel. Not all have to be fully shown, however.

    Quite a bit more than 8 are shown in the 3rd to last panel of 1130.

    Find somebody being whapped with sword.

    Edit: Reread your post and realised I missed the word "exactly."
