Roy gives an uninspiring speech, which Elan turns around to motivate the party.



Panel 1

Roy has the Order and Minrah assembled. He is still inebriated.
Roy: OK, kids, Leader Speech time.
Roy: We're gonna go kick Xykon's ass and fix everything and whatever.
Roy: Have some cool fights, maybe squeeze in a little more character growth, some stunning plot revelations.
Roy: You'll love it.

Panel 2

Roy: I'mma go below deck and sleep this off. Do whatever needs to be done before we get there.
Roy: Wake me if the world blows up early.
Roy descends below deck

Panel 3

Everyone looks confused and/or uncomfortable.

Panel 4

Elan: I've never been more inspired.
Belkar: Come again?

Panel 5

Elan: Think about it!
Elan: Roy just went to bed and left us to figure out what needs to be done. Us!

Panel 6

Elan: When we started this adventure, would Roy have ever let his guard down like that?
Elan: Did he trust any of us to know what to do without his constant supervision?

Panel 7

Elan: Stumbling off in a drunken stupor to pass out in his bunk is the ultimate vote of confidence!

Panel 8

Durkon: Tha's a really good point.
Haley: Yeah, remember when he used to never even sleep?
Belkar: That was because of us? I just thought he had an undiagnosed medical condition.

Panel 9

Elan: Let's all do our part, so he feels free to abandon us to our own devices again in the future!
Blackwing: Wooo!
Durkon: Aye!
Belkar: I'll drink to that!
Minrah: I'm so confused.

Panel 10

Elan: …What?
Haley: I'm trying to figure out if you just fixed that for Roy on purpose.

Panel 11

Elan: He said to do whatever needed to be done, so I did. Does it matter?
Haley: Only for the purposes of accurately calibrating my proudness.


  • Roy did not trust Haley, Belkar, or Elan to guard the party while the spellcasters rested, as portrayed early in the comic in #14, "Why Roy is Always Tired".
