- Two Soldiers of the Empire of Blood
- Panel 1
Haley: My brain feels like a psion...
Haley: ...did some psiony stuff.
Haley: Ugh, I don't even have the energy to think up a good one-liner right now.
- Panel 2
Haley: Oh, hey, baby. You're up early.
Haley: Well, if you're seeing Durkon, ask him whether Thor has blessed his people with any decent hangover cures.
Elan: No, he went to Malack's library. I'm spending the day with my dad. He's giving me a tour of the whole city today.
- Panel 3
Haley: Elan, about your Dad...
Elan: If you're going to say more meanie meanhead stuff about him, please don't.
Haley: Actually, I wanted to apologize.
- Panel 4
Haley: You were right. I wasn't giving him the chance to do the right thing. And it was wrong for me to then judge him for that.
Elan: Great! So you see that my dad's not a bad guy now?
- Panel 5
Haley: No, of course not. This is still an awful, AWFUL country, and your dad has his fingerprints all over it.
Haley: But I can admit that we don't know how many of the terrible things that seem to go on here are really under his control. He's not the king.
Haley: The Empress may be dumb, but she's still an evil red dragon. And that Malack, he's definitely up to no good, no matter what Durkon says.
- Panel 6
Haley: I can't get mad at your dad for working with bad people. I mean, we work with Belkar.
Elan: Right! Maybe my dad is like this country's Roy, and it would be a whole lot worse without him.
- Panel 7
Haley: Anyway, have fun with your tour of the city, honey.
Haley and Elan kiss, "smooch!"
Elan: OK, see you tonight! I love you.
Haley: Love you too.
- Panel 8
Generic Soldier: The General is expecting you, sir.
Elan: Thanks, generic soldier!
- Panel 9
Amun-Zora leaves Tarquin's room.
Elan: Hi! I think we met at the dinner last night.
Amun-Zora: I have to go.
- Panel 10
Tarquin: Good morning, Son! I see you already saw the future Mrs Tarquin #10 on her way out.
Elan: Are you a future psychic, too?? You ARE just like Roy!
- Panel 11
Tarquin: I hope your own woman is doing well. She did seem to have a bit too much to drink.
Elan: Oh, she'll be OK. Since I'm not there, I bet she'll just stay in bed all day.
- Panel 12
Cut to Haley's room.
Haley: Hey V, Daddy and Whitesnake are occupied. Wanna see how many slaves we can sneak out of the palace before dinner.
Vaarsuvius: By my calculations, twenty-three.
Haley: No, I meant—
Haley: Just get your stuff.
D&D Context Edit
- The Psion is an optional class which manifests supernatural powers through mental discipline. Some psion powers allow them to damage another's mind.
- Roy's "future psychic" abilities were established by Elan in #185, The Time Killers.
- In the final panel Haley has her +5 Icy Burst bow, which she lost in #713, Roy had recoverd in #728, and Durkon presumably collected (along with the knife) in #732. He is not shown returning it to her.
