    Oh, doors. You are indeed the bane of invisible people.

    Shame about that phylactery. Will he leave O-Chul alive?

    Bah.

    Kizin or whatever. What was his name? I guess he wasn't much more than an orange Redcloak with no backstory, though. Dang, O-chul's awesome. Shame he couldn't break the phylactery, though.

    I see a chance for V to start redeeming herself. Here's hoping she makes the right decision.

    I didn't see any X's in O-Chul's eyes, so he still has some fight left in him.

    I love OotS.

    Awesome strip. Love the fiend admitting that even he was rooting for O-Chul for a sec. And apparently Qarr is in the "V is female camp".

    Eh, Redcloak is a high level cleric. If he wants to bring his lackey back from the dead, he can.


    But damn, O-Chul's a lot more deadly with that improvised weapon than I'd expect.

    I'm a bit worried what happened to O-Chul? If Xykon has time to deal with V, would that mean that O-Chul is just a bit of charcoal by now?

    sooo Ochul survived a Disintegrate (saved), a meteor swarm and a maximised lightning bolt and is still above -10hp.

    Curious what the abjurations on the phylectary are. Can't think of any possibilities at the moment, but there are probably some.

    If we are going down the 'V's redemption' route, then a Disintegrate on the phylectary might work. Even V can hit a stationary target. Unless Xykon has a spell to counter that.

    Hehe, not so fast V, you're not out of the woods yet. Also looks as if Xykon's got O-Chul under control...until MitD starts getting into things I guess.

    Turning invisible and running away again, V?

    Well, at least the fiends are rooting for Xykon's destruction as well. D&D makes for strange bedfellows.

    Since Xykon's now looking for V, we can assume O-Chul is at least unconscious. Guess that just leaves the MitD between his new best buddy and Xykon.

    But the Monster's bound to have a crappy Will Save....

    Either way, someone relevant is gonna die

    Wow, V just can't get a break, can she?

    I loved the fiend rooting for O-Chul, as well as the confirmation that the fiends want V to live. This seems proof that they will seize control while V is alive.

    I hope that O-Chul lives. At the very least, he should toss it to the MitD and have him try to stomp on it.

    Oh man, even O-Chul can't break the phylactery. That is ONE tough necklace.

    Please don't let O-Chul be dead!

    And yes, damn you closed doors.

    (Hob)Goblins? They seem more like flies at the rate they're dropping.

    O-Chul doesn't look dead yet. Maybe he'll get a few more cracks at the phylactery before he bites the dust?

    Still, opening the door MIGHT work to V's advantage...

    Open the door, then FLY in the other direction. Pick up O-Chul and take him out through the big hole Xykon knocked through the wall.

    No idea how V will get back to the OotS.

    Nooooooo! Jirix! Alas, I thought you might be the one to lead the Hobgoblins out of Azure City and to peace someone else.

    And wow. So O-Chul has taken a disintegrate and a Meteor Swarm, and seemingly a maximized Lightening bolt (he doesn't have Xs, so he hasn't died for sure.)

    Plus Xykon (and the Giant) reveals again that he is cunning like a fox. Protecting his phylactery from situations like this (or anything) with magic, did anyone imagine that this is what would thwart O-Chul?

    And again V runs in Azure City while invisible - that can't be good for the old brain. Unless she suddenly has a heroic moment... love the closed door gag. It is so true.

    Nice to see the IFCC again as well, while getting a greater idea of how they are operating, plus putting paid to the idea (which I admit I thought may be possible) that they might grab V out of there.

    The closed door. It's the simple things that really make you smile.

    BTW, maybe I've just been getting lucky, but are the forums in here working better? That would be fantastic if true. I love posting here and it was a source of minor frustration when everything would go down. Bravo for getting things working properly!

    (Unless it's just a coincidence of timing, in which case forget everything I said about it.)

    Not only will the door squeak, but there'll likely be a hobgoblin patrol behind it too that V won't be able to squeeze past. Oh and because Redcloak is paranoid the patrol will have a caster in it with an active See Invisibility effect.

    Wonder what sort of lucky break/Deus Ex Machina/Diabolus Ex Machina will need to occur for V to live, because clearly V's constantly rolling 1s at this point.
