    Possibly. I'm more inclined to think it's Tarquin (he could always just send Jacinda after all...).

    Who is not reassured by someone else supporting his actions?

    Edit: After copying and pasting the original question into my post, I think flat_footed's answer is correct. Tarquin was worried about a potential derail; Haley was worried about a derail that had already happened.

    This is the one I meant. Your question.

    I honestly didn't think about Tarquin; I probably would have excluded him as well.

    Woo!

    What is exactly 3 feet, 9 inches?

    Hint:

    It's one of Vaarsuvius's spells.

    Hmm... It was the range of something... I'm pretty sure the joke was that it was much smaller than it was meant to be...

    Ah ha! Invisibility sphere!

    If we kill Nale, all he needs is for Hilgya or Zz'dtri or someone we don't even know about to drum up the cash for a True Resurrection spell and BAM! Nales's back in buisness and there's not a lot we could have done.

    I thought this referred to his riding dog in #140 and #432, but no. Maybe he's stuck with the Order, and I think he complained about that once. I thought of the discussion with Buggy Lou in #685, but that's not it. It was the Order of the Stick though, or at least part of it: #520 third panel, Belkar complains to Tsukiko: "I've been stuck with these losers, bumming around making small-time raids of the food supply." Tsukiko had the much cooler option of joining Team Evil. OQ.

    While your answer certainly fits, I actually intended it to be the riding dog and his envy of Hinjo, who gets to unleash the fury.

    Half (ac)quitting would be like inaction, I suppose. Where Durkon would have gotten +5 shoes is another question....And +5 to what?

    Belkar: "[W]e'll be killing Xykon[!]"

    Five strips later: One dead roach.

    Maybe Belkar can't tell the difference between them?

    Because they don't get scared of Belkar. But I think there was another comic where Belkar complains about this, and that is probably the intended answer.

    I guess Zombies do technically fall under the umbrella of "Undead", but yes, I had a different, zombie-specific, comic in mind.

    Still, it's a valid answer, so your question!

    While we're waiting for another question, I made something for those of you who like to count things! I did some scraping, and have a list of how many times each comic was linked to in a trivia thread (not necessarily how many times it was the answer; that's hard to do automatically).

    Trivia thread stats!

    Interesting findings:
    • Comics 389, 87, 122, and 387 are apparently trivia gold. Each of them has been linked to from this thread at least 100 times.
    • Comics 527 and 482 are trivia anathema. They're the only comics from before BRitF that have been linked less than three times. Looking at them, it makes sense; I can't think of any trivia questions about them.
    • BRitF and Utterly Dwarfed both have many comics that have never been linked.

    I made such statistics in the last thread. I also asked a few questions about strips of which no questions had been asked, but then I found that too hard, so I progressed to strips with one, two or three references, usually making sure that I don't repeat an old question. You will see that I also found that #389 was the most frequently referenced strip.

    I will offer testcases to debug your results then. #527 is referenced at least twice: 9342983, 23007405; and #482 is referenced at least twice: 11704289, 15400119.

    Two is less than three, though.

    Even with the linked comic, it took me a while to see it. Great catch!
