The Order of the Stick arrive in Cliffport with the quest to free Julia from Nale.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

A swirling blue shape appears in the middle of Cliffport. It makes an "mmmmm..." sound.

Panel 2

The cast appear with a loud "POP!"
Belkar: —just saying, if Ears here learned how to cast Teleport already, we wouldn't have had to sweet-talk Shojo into lending us a wizard.
Vaarsuvius: When I chose Conjuration as my barred school, Teleport was still a Transmutation spell. It is hardly my fault that the universal laws of the universe have changed since then!
Haley: Vrqxx rtegqxg abqvo lvqkul hte fx'qx LVKMM jhskeo nrxhu qtmx qxyklkbe wbsxl... Obgl, fx ltns.

Panel 3

Roy: Calm down, both of you. It worked out just fine.
Roy: I told Shojo we were pursuing a known associate of Xykon, which is technically true.
Roy: He doesn't need to know any more than that.

Panel 4

Wizard Guy: Excuse me sir, if your done pretending I can't hear you because I'm a nameless NPC, I'll head off to that tavern there and get utterly drunk in response to my life's apparent meaninglessness.
Roy: Huh? Oh yeah, whatever, have fun.

Panel 5

Roy: OK people, stay sharp. Nale is somewhere in the city.
Roy: It's a safe bet that the half-orc broke out of prison with him, too.

Panel 6

Roy: Nale gave me a location of a warehouse for the hostage exchange, so we'll start there.
Belkar: Ah, so your cunning plan is to foil his trap by walking directly into it.
Roy: Sort of, yeah.

Panel 7

Roy: I intend to smoke Nale out of his hiding place. He's too much of an egomaniac to pass up an opportunity to gloat.
Roy: If I show up, he'll want to explain exactly how he beat me. Then we beat the crap out of him.

Panel 8

Roy: I'll go in the front door. V, you take Durkon and cover me from the street. Haley, find a rooftop position to snipe from. Elan, hide as best you can.

Panel 9

Belkar: What about me?
Roy: Protect Elan. We know Nale will come after him if he can.
Belkar: I could do that a lot better if this stupid Mark of Justice was lifted.
Roy: I never said it was a perfect plan.

Panel 10

Belkar: Man, this sucks! Once again, I have to sit on the sideline and watch while everyone else gets the action!
Belkar: This is just like my highschool prom all over again!

Panel 11

Elan: Aww, do you mean because all the other halflings got the girls?
Belkar: No, I mean because they prevented me from stabbing anyone in the eye then, too.
Belkar: The after-party, on the other hand...

D&D Context Edit

  • Teleport is a 5th level wizard spell that allows instantaneous travel for the caster and up to one additional person for every three levels.
  • In 2nd Edition AD&D, Teleport was in the Alteration school of magic, while in the 3rd and 3.5 editions it is a Conjuration magic, and the Alteration school was renamed Transmutation. Vaarsuvius chose to Specialize in the Evocation school, and chose Conjuration as a barred school. Thus with the rule revisions in 3.0, V lost the ability to cast Teleport.

Trivia Edit

  • The translation of Haley's line is:
    • Panel 2: Three hundred fortg [sic] strips aun [sic] we're STILL making cheap rule revision jokes... Gods, we suck.
      • There again appears to be an error in the cryptogram, and this time not a simple double replacement. The two misspelled words should read "forty" and "and".
  • This is the first appearance of Wizard Guy (known in the forum list as "Azurite Wizard").
  • In panel three, Roy is referring to the fact that when they met, Nale was working for Xykon to kill the Order.
  • The discussion thread for this strip was lost or else never existed.
