Order of the Stick

Filed in ChordTags: ,

There’s an old saying that goes “ignorance is bliss.” Now, I don’t know if this is true or not, but what I do know is that in the fantasy stick figure webcomic Order of the Stick, Elan the bard has managed to weaponize his ignorance and used it against his more intelligent (and evil twin) brother Nale. Now, I will admit that I was not expecting to see Nale in the comic; while I didn’t think he was dead, I honestly thought cartoonist Rich Burlew already had enough irons in the fire with the existing storyline. Nale’s presence does make sense, and it’ll be interesting to see how Elan and his friends deal with Nale’s mercenaries; they’re at their strongest when they work together as a team, and Nale has managed to catch the Order when they are divided. Still… nearly all of Nale’s original band is here to fight the Order… which leaves me wondering if we may see the return of Hilgya, the dwarvish priestess whose heart Durkon broke so many years back.
