    Whatever else is driving V that mad it's either:

    - He's really bound to Roy and Haley (indeed it seemed so during the whole comic), but not much to anybody else.

    - Roy and Haley are just excuse - so he can prove him/herself that (s)he can, I say CAN, find them, save the world and do this kind of stuff

    Most possibly both, and few other things too.

    Brilliant, just brilliant...
    I guess this marks the end of the OotS as a group of adventurers and starts to consider them as characters of a novel though. This is a great but so not D&D anymore.

    I think that Rad post answer's it nicely.

    OotS is no absolutely no longer adventurer's pack, who "had to" had tank, arcane caster, striker und controler, or whatever.

    Now they're just people who're acting... somehow.

    hmm... unexpected... but you know, wizards are unpredictable and easy to enrage...



    for #600, I personally don't think that there will be much Quarr/V... I think it will be a big breakup between Sapphire Guard and the remainig OotS (or maybe just Elan, Durkon didn't do anything wrong...)

    or at least there will be questions...

    Really not happy with this. I've been reading the comic since ~halfway through the Azure City battle, and since then the group has spent more time apart than together(not a single comic in that period that had all 6 characters), and the party seems to only be worsening that. If I wanted to see old friends hate each other and go their separate ways, I'd move into my buddies' apartment. This comic worsened the trend, not improved it. I am really beginning to wonder whether I'll stick with the comic till the end. A lot depends on the next Haley arc.

    Imps, or any Devil in the generic D&D rules, aren't so much about possessing people. In both D&D and the comic (which is resembling a D&D game less and less as noted above), I think it's most likely that Qarr will corrupt V through words, advice, and assistance, rather than outright control.

    Yeah! I'm liking this! I figure a 50% chance that Varsuvius will simply blast Qarr out of the sky, but that leaves a 50% of V staring villain-hood in the face.

    Loved Elan basically saying "take a hike." That was great.

    Ans thus, Vaarsuvius completes her boomersification and is oficially an opposing force.

    Elan has shown great deal of maturity. Played the same role as Durkon when the order meet Miko for the first time. "Durkon, do something!" "...I surrender".

    Well, please don't take this the wrong way, but all the previous, 6 in a Dungeon comics are archived for your viewing pleasure. I understand that this is a bad turn for all involved, but storytelling needs bad things. Otherwise it would be very boring and/or very short.

    I mean, it's a kick in the fork no doubt about it, but it will (probably) get better later on.

    Vaarsuvius wants to find Hayley. And Roy. Different priorities, but not necessarily opposing. At least, not yet.

    Oh dear...

    This is kinda worrying. I was really hoping that V's slide would be averted somehow.

    Elan's lies to Hinjo were so much less competent and believable than the elaborate, all-covering ones that were flying around in the thread dedicated to what one might tell Hinjo... That provided a smile in the midst of all the darkness. Well, that and the reference to the V gender debate.

    Elan having to think on his feet (without V to assist him) got totally flustered, he told half of the truth just not the rest. Stress is getting to him you can tell.

    I still wonder why Elan lied to Hinjo. he could have just told Hinjo that V did it, Hinjo asks "where's V?"
    Elan says "V flew away."

    Because Elan is still loyal to V. Hence why he's willing to let V go in the hopes they'll get this out of their system, he doesn't want to dob V in.

    [Mr. Burns pose]Excellent![/Mr Burns pose]
    I really, really, really enjoyed this page, for a whole bunch of reason.
    The first, the story is probably taking a faster pace while allowing characters to grow into themselves. It requires writing ability. I miss the comedy, but it's worth it.
    Second, it gives a conclusive answer to many threads and wild speculation. I lost some prevision, but still I'm relieved of a lot of questions.

    Wait, wait, wait for once more page, just wait for once more page!

    Bravo on the the in character use of the word "imbroglios." My teenage years were spent suffering a classical education and I still had to crack a dictionary on that one.

    im·bro·glio [im-brohl-yoh] –noun, plural -glios.

    1. a misunderstanding, disagreement, etc., of a complicated or bitter nature, as between persons or nations.
    2. an intricate and perplexing state of affairs; a complicated or difficult situation.
    3. a confused heap.

    Elan didn't have to elaborate. It's a big ocean with lots of currents and critters in it. If there were a body, the most thorough search wouldn't guarantee finding it.

    Then again, Elan intelligence and/or wisdom may be climbing, but they're still not his strong suit. And the needs of narrative may have some requirement for bringing in some stress between Elan and Hinjo.
