The party sets out on their mounts, but Elan knows a narrative continuity error when he sees one.
- The Order of the Stick
- Silver ◀
- Whisper ◀
- Elan's Horse ◀
- Vaarsuvius' Horse ◀
- Belkar's Riding Dog ◀
- Panel 1
The whole party rides their mounts.
Roy: Any questions on what this little quest is going to entail?
Elan: I have a question.
Belkar: Me too.
- Panel 2
Belkar: Are there gonna be any monsters??
Belkar: I could really go for killing something, painfully.
- Panel 3
Roy: There will be three trials: a Test of the Body, a Test of the Mind, and a Test of the Heart.
Roy: Any or all might have monsters.
- Panel 4
Belkar: What, like, "Answer me these questions three?"
Roy: Well probably more original than that, but yes.
- Panel 5
Roy: Any other questions?
Elan: Pick me! Me!
Vaarsuvius raises a finger.
- Panel 6
Vaarsuvius: How difficult should we expect these tasks to ultimately be?
Roy: Tough to say; Durkon and I defeated them on our own, but I'm sure he's changed them by now.
- Panel 7
Roy: Any other questions?—
Elan: Ooo! Ooo!
Roy: Anyone at all?
- Panel 8
Elan: Me! Me!
Roy: WHAT? What, Elan, what is it? What's your big question?
- Panel 9
Elan: Didn't we leave our horses behind at the inn we blew up when Miko captured us?
- Panel 10
- Panel 11
The whole order (except Durkon) loses their mount as they pop out of existence and drop to the ground: "POP! POP! POP! POP! POP!"
- This is the final appearance of the party's mounts, except for Durkon's Pony. Elan's Horse, Vaarsuvius' Horse, and Belkar's Riding Dog first appear in #140, My Little Pony, Whisper first appears in #141, Horse Sense, and Silver first appears in #142.
- Durkon's Pony remains as Durkon went willingly when Miko captured the Order, the others being dragged to Azure City in chains.
- Vaarsuvius is missing an arm in panel 10.
