    Great comic! The whole "they were just braiding their hair for no reason at all" seems like a playful stab to us theorists here in the forums. Well done!

    Lose this one, tho it does follow the principle noted, that Roy looks in at the crucial moment.

    So maybe they have to de-curse Belkar so they have a chance of fighting their way out.

    It looks like they won't have much of a choice regarding curing Belkar. I wonder if the Cleric will be that useful? We know he's less then level 13.

    I can't get over how much happened in this strip. It's like the anti-600 (and that's coming from someone who liked #600).

    Best moment for me was Haley and Celia looking puzzled trying to come up with even one distinguishing feature about Durkon.

    Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today to commemorate the death of our dear friend 4th wall. He was a good wall badly abused...

    Great one, Giant.

    Blind old pete planning to walk in pretending he is still blind perhaps? I would. (assuming they don't get killed etc)

    Ah Belkar is so screwed, I wonder who knows (knew?) the password?

    Meep, having the comic sneak up on you is disconcerting to say the least.

    Heh, the priest's "I don't want to die, I've only been in one strip so far!" and Celia's "...I always make both eyes the same by accident". Poor fourth wall.

    The priest of Loki seems kinda cool too... interesting.

    As for Pete, SHAME ON YOU. For making such a corny pun AND selling out your "friends".

    Yeah, though he could still come back after being cured to help rescue them.

    I hope.

    Great strip, and one of my favorites as of late!

    And I like this cleric - he's got Elan-like mastery of genre conventions, and he already delivered a great line ("I don't want to die, I've only been in one strip so far!").

    I hope the cleric doesnt die. I really like him even though hes only been in one strip so far. Well that and if he die, its gonna take something like 100 strips to resurect Roy.

    And I hope Pete die...Shame on you! You sold two of your friends who were really trusting you to your mortal enemies when you are probably gonna die of old age soon anyway. Whats the point of getting your eyes back for the few years you still have to live if it means an eternity of suffering in the evil afterlife?????

    I hope he rots in Carceri!

    He'll be in at least two. He has to die in one of them.

    Evidently, clerics of Loki can pick Drama as one of their domains.

    Great strip! I'm definitely intrigued to see what happens next. The urgency has returned.

    Hardly worth scolding Pete, really. He is an old rogue after all. Just in his nature.

    Just hope he doesn't get too attached to his new eyes. Hit the strip joint before they gouge 'em out again, Pete!

    Way to lampshade small details. I didn't remember the room turning blue in #569 when the MoJ was triggered. Nice continuity.

    I have to admit I got confused at the end. I thought Pete had to get his eyes from the basement before they could be regenerated.

    Now if there will be a fight they'll probably want the curse (MoJ) removed from Belkar. One more Fighter is one more Fighter.
    I can't beleive that old (not for long anymore) blind Pete betrayed Haley.

    P.S.
    I love the cleric - his spot skill must be quite high to spot the cut away panel
    I hope he won't be slaughtered like so many NPCs
