G: "Hm. Why didn't he just think a bit? See those boots? He was faster than you. He could flee. Or engrave 'the-word-we-dont-speak-of '. Or zap one of his wands..."

h: "I'm glad he didn't. And I don't know why they often act in such a hurry. They don't move, we're not moving. You'd think it's simple enough. As if they lived in a world that isn't turn based."

A little wordy, but I love the idea of turn-based dinner.

Very interesting.

Good concept, poor execution.

The set-up is longer than it should be, yes, but the last three panels are great. The gnome's first line reminds me of the "sarcastic DYWYPI" in an earlier strip.

Lol. I was wondering why he wasn't using the "hit-retreat-hit" tactic that works on pretty much everything in the Mines, but I was figuring it was just Dudley.
