Kaliyo is a very comforting person.

So a few things. First off, apologies for this comic being late. The delay was partly due to bad time management and partly due to a lot of things going on in my life right now. None of it is particularly bad but it is time consuming. Long story short, I have to put in some over time at work, and I'm one week away from spending two weeks in Africa (specifically Egypt).

I'm excited (like omg visiting Egypt is on my bucket list and I've never been to Africa before and I'm so GOD DAMN STOKED RIGHT NOW excited), but also a bit sleep deprived. Please enjoy the comic, while I pass out now.

So... how did they survive?

Also, unless I am misremembering my Balmorran geography, they should not have had to jump down (they would have exited off of the bridge at the BOTTOM of the elevators, where Lachris is etc.).

Stars but that is the best thing I've ever seen in my life. "she's fine. Well, probably." Awesome. Thank you for this gift of a comic.

Wonderful strip, very nicely done.

I hope your trip is safe, productive, and delightful.

As to how they survive ... there are a few ways that come to mind:

* - There are many precipices in SW:tOR that 'cliff surfing' is very survivable. Although usually jumping off the elevator platform into empty space negates that.
* - If you time it right, you can often jump off an elevator platform onto the actual elevator, survive, then jump off again to the ground -- turning one lethal fall into two survivable falls in quick succession.
* - One can easily imagine Mendiloquence employing a standard Sith Warrior tactic for surviving falls from a great height without damage -- you leap off the edge and, as you fall, pick some poor schlub and Force Leap to him, whacking him with your light saber and landing unharmed on your feet and looking good. ("The Empire appreciates your service, Nameless Trooper. Be sure to tell all your friends that Lord Mendiloquence honored you by allowing you to cushion his fall!") Of course, in the game the hapless target needs to be hostile, but, in the game, you can't carry anyone, anyway. And, if they weren't hostile before you whacked them with your lightsaber, they probably are now. ^_^
* - He's carrying a healer with him. It's his job to be awesome and take insane risks for the Sith. It's her job to make sure they survive. ^_^

I generally took the "attempt to hit the elevator platform halfway down and split the fall" approach.

This frequently led to the "wait patiently at the base of the elevator for Ilayas to rez me" approach.

Both entertaining. One slightly more time efficient than the other.

You are giving me flashbacks, Gil! <-- He did that - more than once. And I was irritated

Also - with that particular elevator set-up, if you go to the elevator on the right side, you -can- go further right and jump to land on the building's roof - then hop down.

Plus...elevators in SWTOR are another thing that could've been improved with handrails. I've taken many an inadvertent plummet from their lack.

It's kinda cute how Mendi holds Salih.
He colud have just throw her over his shoulder but like this she rests comfortable in his arms, while falling to protential death.

I'm with you on that one. For some reason it just pokes my brain in a happy way.

If this panel keeps receiving such critical acclaim, and generating well-deserved compliments for the artist, it may energize and revitalize @Ilayas so much that she will be encouraged to generate hundreds and hundreds more webcomic pages. ...

... It will be "the panel that launched 1,000 strips". ^_^
