    V is losing! It'd never be that easy for her/him to win! And Jephton didn't even get an epic spell!

    V is losing, as was to be expected, but I'll be a bit disappointed if Jepthon doesn't get to use an epic spell at all. I hope the souls still have a few higher level spell slots left, but with all of these negative levels I'm not sure what we should expect. An energy drain followed by a maximized energy drain will give them an average of 13 (5 + 8) negative levels. That's 13 higher-level spells lost unless I'm mistaken, which wouldn't surprise me. I don't have a great understanding of 3.X rules. On that note, could anybody tell me why V was unaffected by the energy drain? Also...did Xykon just use a 12th level spell slot?

    As much as I'd hate to seem him lose so badly, I think it'd be kind of hilarious if V dies and then rises as a wight for Tsukiko to control.

    interesting that the negative levels affect the souls and not V...

    I do like Xykon's summation of V's poor choice.

    hmmm... I wonder if V's going to take Xykon's advice and try to get the power of someone who "had the balls to stay in the game..." and we only know of one character like that...

    I just got the "Immortal with the paint by numbers portait", anyone else?

    there are a couple problems with Xykon's Energy Drain, but... meh.

    That was, given the circumstances, the best way to change the odds in that battle. Good job, Giant

    My two cents
    Spoiler
    Show

    Either, Redcloak somehow studied about them, or was informed about them by the Dark One via cloak (after all the fiends have a no competitive clause with Evil Gods).

    Or, a distant possibility, the fiends might have tried to sell the splice to Redcloak.

    1. Xykon doesnt seem damaged at all.
    2. V is using blast spells which is BAD.
    3. Splice guys suck now.
    4. V can teleport outside with regular teleport, not inside, but outside shall be ok.
    5. V probably doesnt stand a chance now.
    6. Xykon is much more powerfull than we thought - how much lv spell slot is this? Geez...
    7.I just hope he wont die.

    V sucked so much in this... Pure crappiness.

    Woo, fun fight. But V is losing, hard. Looks bad.

    I disagree. Not a single pixel out of place. Shading is done well, all lines are crisp and clean, every spell is...oh wait. You mean about V being screwed...OK yeah that isn't looking to be a very positive turn of events for V.

    Maximised energy drain? How's that even possible? Regular energy drain is a level 9 spell. I know there are feats to drop the spell level of metamagic enhanced spell but can they really drop it that much? IIRC, maximised adds 3 spell levels.

    Good comic though. It's nice seeing Xykon fight smart for a change.
