    eek OOTS #639 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is up.

    Also, a new Erfworld, in case you didn't notice.

    We're going to try keeping the boards up during this, but expect that to change if the server gets too slow.

    Oh my word... Thats not good!

    Now I think that's revenge on a far greater scale than anybody expected to see.

    Before anyone says V is really evil now, let me point out: He saved the bunny!

    I do believe that this is the first time that I've actually found myself honestly horrified by something I saw in a webcomic. And considering that OOTS was the one to do it, you can count me doubly surprised.

    As a secondary effect, Familicide causes all comic readers to sit in stunned silence for 2d4 minutes, trying to absorb the magnitude of the event.

    Wow - I think that the Giant has spent the past few weeks drawing Black Dragons. Nicely avatar sized ones there too!

    Nice display of revenge, do dragons have ghosts that could be a big problem in the future?

    Since the forums shut down for a half hour anyway at 4am. Posting during this period would seem to be the perfect time to do this. Gives a little pause... I think.

    That or it would give just enough time for everyone to wait the half hour out and then rush in like mad.

    Also, did V just kill every black dragon in the world? No saving throw? How... How can a spell do that?


    EDIT: No, wait, I get it now. It killed every blood relative the black dragon had, no saving throw.

    Uh..... Wow!

    Well, I guess in game terms all black dragons are evil by definition - so V has just ridded the world of a great deal of evil (all the affected dragons appeared to be black). Whether that's an evil act or not depends on if you judge it subjectively or objectively. Objectively, Good has won a great victory this day and it was a Very Good act. Subjectively, V's motivations were quite evil.

    Perhaps V has turned Evil in the commission of a great Good. That would be nice irony.

    But mostly, just... Wow!

    Interesting to see part of the earth in OOTS.

    Itís looking worse and worse for V, though. I wonder if his/her mate will be able to snap him/her out of it?

    Pure evil. I still hope V is going to give up the power once he's over with the dragon. :(

    V has really lost it this time..... Reanimating a head to kill it's whole family everywhere in the world......

    Rich, the emote you used is very appropriate for this strip.....

    I was equally horrified when Xykon tossed the super bouncy ball into the room of paladins, letting them kill themselves rather than having to do it directly himself. That and this are just so very EVIL.

    A friend and I were just discussing the nature of epic spells...and the thought occurred to me that epic spells often (or almost always) have equally epic backlash.

    ...this could end very badly for V's family.

    Wow, V is evil.

    I wonder if "taking on" every black dragon in the world at once gives him XP.

    Epicness...

    My only complaint is that I had to stop watching Mystery Science Theater 3000 to read it...

    Also, did V just kill every black dragon in the world? No saving throw? How... How can a spell do that?
    It just killed every one related to her. It's just that dragons are horndogs, so that's a whole lotta people. As for "no saving throw or distance limits"...

    Epic Inside. Simple as that. Epic magic can do anything, provided you take the time to research it.

    Anything.

    depending on exactly what that spell does, wouldn't that attempt to exterminate all dragon kind? if I remember my dragon lore right.

    Vaeasir, i don't think there is a deity with the HP to survive a level 90-something character.

    edit: they probably do get a save, but we're talking about super V here, the odds of anyone saving are 5%, assuming this epic spell doesn't have some kind of work around for that.

    Are all of those dragons her offspring or related? That seems a bit much, more
    like genocide, or that it is powerful enough to slay even distant relatives by
    backtracking in the family tree.

    Nothing good can come out of tipping the balance like that.
