    Who needs the Belkster, Haley and Celia? You are about to, when the Guild starts to lay a beat down on you.

    Huzzahs for a way to get the Belkster back in action, the #1 source of HUMOUR, in a comic (caps for all those who want him gone)

    Personally, I hope Belkar doesn't get his curse removed. He'd fall off the wagon with an audible splat. He has a lot of not-killing to make up for. Unchecked? *shudder* However, since I see little other chance of them getting out of this, I guess he's going to have to. Then again, the Giant has surprised me before.

    But I'll throw a couple of predictions out there.

    One, they won't raise Roy this time. The Cleric of Loki made a point of telling Haley he has the scroll that can raise Roy. After he keels over, she can get the scroll from his remains or his room or whatever and take it to Durkon. Also, Belkar will die closer to the end of the entire story. Like, the Scribble Monster will get him or something at the last gate. Like him or not, he's a member of this party and it would be lame to kill him off halfway through the epic, you know?
    The problem with a knife fighting monkey is that unless you let him win, you have to keep buying a new one.

    By the way:

    Anyone else noticed how Haley evaded Belkar's puke in panel 8?
    The same way she is jumping over fire
    Looks like she learned to use her relfex saves with her evasion feat on puke, too

    Edit: And why is the cleric looking around in panel 15 and 16? Did he hear Roy saying something in that panel before?

    Wait, wait, wait people, I just realized something - in the cutaway panel, Blind "Traitor" Pete says : ...I've got Ian's girl, the sylph...etc. Ian? Is that Haley's father he's been talking about? O.o

    huh? i hope he is getting more payment than his eyes regenerated. He already stated why that was not a good deal. Feels a bit cheap really.

    Edit: oh, unless he is doing some kind of weird gamble and is setting up Bozzok (but really just too unlikely).

    So, up to this moment, Old Eagle-Eyed Blind Pete sold guild's secrets, sold an old childhood friend, and sold the daughter of old friends.
    What did he got? No money, as the guild would have not allowed him to keep, spent more to try a regeneration, lived blind for many years, and his secret detection-proof room is now going to be revealed to the Rogue Guild.
    Before someone argue that he should be neutral good and a relative of Roy, is there an Aesop?

    Weirdly enough, my first thought upon seeing Mr. Cleric was "Nale's father" and maybe Lord Tyrinnar. I suppose two characters can both have a goatee and not be related in any way, but him not revealing his name is just suspicious, from a dramatic perspective.... O__o

    What he gets is his eyes back. The Thieves' Guild own Greysky City--they can stop the local clerics regenerating his eyes, and they can put his eyes out again if he somehow gets them regenerated by someone else. I would assume his agreement here is "I get my eyes back and you let me keep them!".

    What's really odd is that Haley would probably have given him the money for a Regeneration and helped him get to safety, if he'd just asked.

    I like Haley and Belkar's exploits a lot better than I do Elan and Durkan's.

    The cleric is an interesting character. I also enjoy his ability to spot danger, though that's probably just because he's really jumpy right now. I hope he lives for awhile, or at least gets a cool death.

    Old Blind Pete is going to see a cleric of Loki to have his eyes regenerated. Maybe that'll be Hilgya.

    Best comic in a while!

    Prediction: Belkar gets de-cursed to help with the fighting, and ends up putting both of Pete's eyes out again.

    I know the amount of remains don't affect the casting time: I was just wondering if using it from a scroll would take 120 minutes due to the spell taking that long to cast when it's used normally.

    the second-last panel doesn't really happen, but just depicts Haley's fear or such.

    I don't really believe that the Giant would do this, though.

    So it's rather more probable: Haley will backpaddle and allow the cleric to remove the mark of justice. Celia will comment that she doesn't understand this. Then the half OotS will bring death upon the Thieves' Guild, kill Crystal and/or Bozzok (I don't think she'll have a high chance to survive against two high-level chars, not with Haley fighting at range and Belkar glad to be able to kill again) and escape. With no losses, except maybe... too bad the Cleric didn't give his name.

    Order of the Stick does NOT have a fourth wall, at best, it has a fourth railing to prevent accidental falls from the comic. Well, at least until we get 3D animation and Giant can show somebody actually tripping over the railing or banister. (The strip entitled At least it's not the Fourth Wall Again not withstanding). I wonder if Giant sometimes uses TVTROPES.org as a checklist?

    Well, it seems clear that the cleric made a mistake not giving his name, as this means he'll probably be for the chop if there's a fight. Too be honest I'd favour the Thieves Guild in the fight as it stands, especially with Belkar out of action.

    This should be interesting.

    Crazy theory here: Crystal's a rogue (I assume), so maybe she'll have maxed her skill points in UMD and have a wand of Fly- just to fit the Flying Skank theme that Haley's big enemies tend to have.

    It's not a good deal because it costs him a lot of money and one of Bozzok's men always came around and cut them out again. This time Bozzok has promised to give him his eyes back for free and not slice them out. What's not a good deal about that?
