Olan's thoughts for this strip:
So, Lyra has reappeared among the living - and brought a fantastic new strip with her.

Your attention, please: as of this posting, Loaded Dice is celebrating a milestone - a couple of days before this update, we broke the half a million total page view mark for the comic! While this is small potatoes for some of the big webcomics, it's a big deal for us. Thanks to all of you who read the comic!

Don't forget that you can keep up with all of the latest chatter by following Loaded Dice on Tiwtter, or by becoming a fan of our Facebook page. I try to keep both of them very much up to date.

Script for this strip:
Ray: "Okay, so we know that the big bad guy likes the cold."
Tim: "He hates warmth enough to put the furnace out."
Rich: "The monks were going to set a trap with fire and light, right?"
Amy: "Right, so we need to use fire."
Brad: "What are we supposed to do, beat him with torches?"

Rich: "What about the lamp oil in the basement?"
Ray: "Bingo!"

Amy: "If Dalana wraps her arrowheads with oil-soaked rags, those should work as flaming arrows, right?"
Steve: "Sounds reasonable. You won't be able to shoot as often, since you'll have to light them."

Rich: "If that works, then Ladan should be able to put oil into waterskins and throw them like grenades."

Steve: "I don't see why not."
Brad: "So, Aranion can dunk his sword in oil, and use it to..."

Steve: "No. Nice try, though."

Brad: "Oh, well. It was worth a shot."
