- The Order of the Stick
- Nale ◀ ▶
- Thog ◀ ▶
- Yikyik (as a hat) ◀ ▶
- Celia (petrified) ◀ ▶
- Panel 1
Elan: OK, I'll help you up, if you promise to surrender.
Nale: Fine! Whatever! Just be careful, my hands are still slippery with your blood.
Elan: You're not making me feel better about this decision.
- Panel 2
Nale: I'll never tell you anything about Xykon.
Elan: Yeah, I know. But I didn't save you so we could interrogate you. I saved you 'cause I'm the Good twin, not the Neutral twin.
- Panel 3
Nale: I don't get it.
- Panel 4
Roy: Oh, thank the gods that stupid ice wall is melting.
Roy: Whoa, Elan, you actually captured him??
Haley: Ha! Owe me 10 gold.
Roy: Yeah, yeah.
- Panel 5
Belkar appears wearing Yikyik's head as a hat.
Belkar: Hey! Who's that lookin' good in his swanky new leather hat?
Belkar: Must be Belkar!
Haley: Ugh, that's disgusting.
Vaarsuvius: Are those cracks I see in the ceiling?
- Panel 6
Roy: Damn it, Belkar, I wanted to question them all. You should have captured him.
Belkar: For future reference, that's the sort of request you should make BEFORE the battle starts, genius.
- Panel 7
Haley: I'll tie Nale up like I did Thog. I have 8 ranks in Use Rope!
Haley: Shut up.
Thog: thog hungry.
Roy: We've got more pressing matters, too. They may not be swarming, but we still have to get past all those monsters.
Roy: I really wish we had someone who could fly us out of here.
- Panel 8
With a "crack!", the petrified stone statue of Celia falls through the ceiling and hits the ground with a "THUNK!"
- Panel 9
Haley and Roy look around in puzzlement.
- Panel 10
Haley: I really wish I has a bajillion gold pieces!!
D&D Context Edit
- Neutral is the Alignment between Good and Evil and between Law and Chaos.
- Use Rope is a skill that helps characters tie knots, bind a character, or throw a grappling hook.
- Here Belkar shows off his Yikyik hat that he made in #63, continuing the running gag in which he turns the head of the Linear Guild's kobold into "something wacky".
