I find it quite easy to believe that Elan was able to do those Bluff checks. One was Thog. The other candidates were low-level flunkies in the Cliffport police department, who have previously been shown as not being the sharpest knives in the Weapon Emporium. Plus it makes for good comedy, and Elan excels in anything requiring theatrics.
WOW! THAT WAS AMAZING!!! UTTERLY AMAZING!!! ^^ Thanks Giant!
THAT WAS SOOOOOO SWEET! But wow! Elan got like a +10 intelligent boost, so he can save Haley! I love the sudden use of "Big vocab" for Elan, and the fact that his idea is not a candle anymore but has been upgraded to a lantern! And wow! he even fooled the guards, and was brilliant about it! Go Elan! And Thog of course is as cool as ever! I loved the Hulk refrence in it ^^ Purple pants, and the ripping of the shirt, priceless.
Truly awesome comic Giant, thanks!
Ha! True love does exist!

Ok, at what point did Elan become halfway intelligent?
Maybe he got some RP exp, leveled up and then got an ability boost and decided to put it to int. Changing him from helplessly stupid to just plain stupid (no longer helplessly so).
If he did level, I don't think he multiclassed, its possible but I doubt it. Since the "completely different set of class skills" clearly refers to Thog's skills and not his own, he uses his bard abilities a lot too.

That comic was so enjoyable that I just had to post here to let everyone know how great it was. Thog and Elan are funny by themselves, but this is too good to be true. Hope the next comics deal with how the lapricorn costume happened.
Giant I've been enjoying your comic for about a year now and stuff like this reminds me of why I'm doing it. Great man, just great.

Whenever you mention Pun-pun*SQUELCH!*, Ao kills another Kobold.
Everytime someone says "Pazuzu" twice, Ao erases them on the next "Pa". Then he undeletes them so he can wipeinfo them from the multiverse.

I'd love to make a halfway intelligent comment here now that I've stopped laughing but I'm still too busy chuckling. I have to go read that again.
I sort of dislike the whole rating thing where people say "this comic wasn't as good as that comic" or "this is my favorite ever", etc. but IMO the recent run has managed to rank as perhaps the funniest ever.
Elan and Thog in The Road to Azure City. I can't wait.
In a recent episode of Studio 60, John Goodman plays a country judge. One of the show regulars is brought in front of him, charged with a variety of minor-ish crimes and is wearing a shepherd outfit. After some wrangling, the judge asks him what exactly happened.
The guy says something like "Well, it all started a week ago..", and the judge cuts him off, saying "Son, if this story doesn't start with why you're wearing a shepherd outfit, it better be one heck of a story."
The fact that the Giant hasn't even started explaining how they got to Azure City so fast or the Leprechaun suit makes my funnybone giddy with the potential humor to come.
