    Giant, how did you manage to make O-Chul even more badass?

    Seriously, that's some skill right there. And the SoD echo is excellent.

    But can O-Chul smash the phylactery before Xykon gets to him?

    And is Redcloak's holy symbol still Xykon's phylactery?

    And I just woke up and see 655 up =D

    Wonder what will happen to Xykon, better said, how will he save his ass.

    I'd love to see Tsukiko and Jirix Litsen ranks now lol

    Awesome! One for O'Chul facts (how stupid they may be, but this one fits):

    Casting disintegrate on O'Chul is like trying to stop an incoming train by throwing pebbles at it! ;)

    Redcloak should call himself Lefteye now. :)

    So is Redcloak going to be called Left-Eye from now on?

    Similar to Wolverine's jump-decapitate move in the Origins movie.


    Only, you know...cooler and actually good.

    O-Chul is, of course awesome.

    My thoughts exactly. He keeps raising the bar ever higher. He also apparently smites evil with it.

    Nah, at the very least, Hinjo ate one from Redcloak during the escape from Azure City.

    Also, EPIC. It's like the comic is glowing purple or something...

    Rock on, O-Chul!

    Charge attack critical hit with a bent prison bar...

    I believe his loss of an eye is related to Start of Darkness? I should read that sometime...

    Despite my love for all things Redcloak, that was amusingly ironic.

    And who knows, perhaps O'Chul will serve as a character-development catalyst for someone other than the MitD.

    EDIT: Also, sweet, sweeeet new server.

    That was utterly awesome. And so, so satisfying.

    I went back and checked after realising the SoD link, and, yup, it was the right eye.

    O-Chul is a walking, breathing, smiting CMOA. But I don't want Xykon to die... yet

    Redcloak lost a right eye, left eye, who cares. It'll only last as long as it takes for him to say "regeneration", right?

    Yesssssss! Go O-chul! Kick some ass!

    I have the feeling that smashing Xykon's phylactery is not going to work (or not going to happen) at this point ... which is too bad, 'cause man, that paladin sure deserves the victory. He could have broken out and saved himself a long time ago, but instead he waited and tolerated torture for his chance to be a hero. I mean, wow, that's tough.

    I suppose that Xykon will have to drop V to go get his phylactery back, which gives the poor foolish elf an opportunity to escape.

    My emotional reactions, in order:

    Ironic-and-meaningful-injury for the win!

    I wonder where Redcloak word of recall'd to? And what will he do without a holy symbol for the Dark One?

    seems O'chul will create the distraction that lets V get away.
    and yes, smashing the holy symbol will not hurt Xykon in itself, it just means he wont be able to regenerate.

    Not unless he chooses not to regenerate it.
