Nale and Sabine get caught making out by Vaarsuvius.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Nale: Ah, Sabine, good.
Nale: Greenhilt and the rest are teleporting down to a place called "Azure City". Are you familiar with it?
Sabine: Sure, some old buddies of mine did time there once.

Panel 2

Sabine: I can make it there in...three days? Maybe four, depending on the wind.
Nale: Wow, that fast?
Sabine: I don't get tired.
Nale: Heh. Believe me, I know

Panel 3

Nale: OK, bring Pompey and—
Sabine: Nuh uh, no way. I'm not flying for three days with that little pervert "accidentally" groping me the entire time. It's not happening.

Panel 4

Nale: Ugh, fine. Tell him to stay here and watch the prison, then. Tell him to use a Sending scroll if anything changes.
Nale: You, fly down and meet me in Azure City as soon as you can. This disguise won't work forever.
Nale: Except maybe for the halfling.

Panel 5

Sabine: Don't kill the girl until I get down there. I want to cut her up personally
Nale: Well, I'll do what I can, but I'm on a strict, "First alone, first killed," policy here. No promises.

Panel 6

Nale: I must depart, my love.
Sabine: Now before you give me some evil sugar.

Panel 7

Nale and Sabine kiss: smooch! swak! hickey!
Vaarsuvius: (off panel) Elan! The time of our departure is nigh at hand!

Panel 8

Vaarsuvius: One moment—who is that there in the shadows with you? In what activity are you engaged
Nale (off panel): Oh crap, it's the elf.
Sabine (off-panel): Follow my lead.

Panel 9

Sabine: He was just speaking to me, a police officer, about his brother Nale's treatment in prison.
Nale: Right! Right, because I am Elan, and I am foolishly and inexplicably merciful to enemies that would gladly butcher me, against the better judgment of my allies.

Panel 10

Vaarsuvius: Hmmm. Well, that certainly is one of your more puzzling qualities. Very well.

Panel 11

Vaarsuvius: At any rate, cease making out with him and let us leave, forthwith.
Vaarsuvius: And best straighten your clothes before Miss Starshine sees you. Your sash is on backwards.

Panel 12

Nale: Must...resist...urge to assert...heterosexuality! For the sake...of the plan!
Sabine: Honey, I'm a shapechanger, it's not like we never tried—
Nale: Not! Helping!

Trivia Edit

  • Nale was wrong, Belkar was actually the first person to realize his true identity.
  • Nale wears the sash over the left shoulder, whereas Elan wears it over the right shoulder.
  • This is the final appearance of the CPPD Cop with Black Skin, albeit as a shapechanged Sabine. He first appeared in #347.
  • The discussion forum thread from for this strip was lost. The exact publication date is not known at this time.
