Belkar chews Roy out for his lack of discipline.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Roy: Nightfall! Time to camp, everyone.
Vaarsuvius: See? There have been no new encounters.
Elan: Yay, science!

Panel 2

Roy: It is kind of weird to be resting based on the cycle of the day, rather than waiting until we run out of spells.
Haley: Yeah, it's so complicated, with the sun and the moon and all that stuff.

Panel 3

Roy: I guess I'm taking watch, as usual.
Belkar: Not so fast, buddy.

Panel 4

Belkar: I'm not certain I feel safe with you standing watch over me any more.
Roy: You have got to be kidding me.

Panel 5

Belkar: Not at all. You have proven to be completely unreliable.
Roy: Identify with the proverbial pot much?

Panel 6

Belkar: I'm serious.
Belkar: You didn't bring a weapon, Roy. It's a frickin' SIDE QUEST, it's going to be nothing but a forest full of encounters with a prize at the end!

Panel 7

Belkar: I mean, we actually sold the sword Elan found in Xykon's treasure because YOU said you didn't need it.
Belkar: First you barely know how to ride a horse, and now you forgot to pack a secondary weapon? What is that crap?

Panel 8

Belkar: You are falling apart, man. In all my years, I've never seen such a lack of discipline. I am so deeply disappoi—

Panel 9

Roy pulls a badger out of his Bag of Tricks with a "pop!" and flings it into Belkar's face.
Belkar: Mmmph!

D&D Context Edit
