    What timing!

    Both me being on the forums at the time, AND MitD casting that spell.

    Meteor Swarm down the throat would of HURT. To say the least.

    OK... so does this tell us anything about what the MitD is?

    Not me personally - I'm still at a loss. But other people?

    That was great, Giant. I was not seeing that coming. I mean Xykon sending a meteor swarm down their throats is one thing, but being saved by the Mitd, that's just awesome.
    Now I wonder where it is they 'pop'd' to...

    Deus Ex Machina.

    Or not.

    Still, I wonder who teleported their hineys out of there? I suspect V's teacher.

    Edit: Actually, since the cloister spell makes the place scry proof, it is unlikely a pre-epic caster could see they were in trouble and pull them out. So its more likely that MiTD did it.

    And I thought Xykon was mad before. This is likely going to be one of the madest times Xykon has ever been.

    Awesome, awesome strip. As it has been for quite a long time now, you've left me on the edge of my seat. Well done, Giant.

    Also, did that remind anybody else of Sphere, by Michael Crichton?

    The camera zooms in on his eyes as he says "escape", and then they vanish right in time? I have a feeling it was the MitD, or at least something directly caused by him.

    I never thought I'd say this, but I'm going to actually look forward to the rulebook/spellbook/whateverbook argument sure to result from this comic just so that I can figure out what the heck just happened!

    Not that this isn't a great plot twist.

    So... what spells allow someone to find out where V and O-chul are and then get them out, all through an epic barrier that prevents scrying?

    Alternatively, what kind of creature has a transport spell like ability and can use it without touching or moving itself?

    What is this power, MitD? (searches though obscure 3rd party monster manuals)

    Possible candidates for teleportation spell:

    MitD
    Oots
    Oracle
    V's mentor
    Someone else
    IFCC
    Azure colony

    Did I miss anyone?
    Edit: Thanks to Klivian for adding the IFCC

    I suspect the MiTD did it, but isn't aware that it did. Perhaps it's new to it's own abilities...

    What? What? Whaaat?

    Wow.

    I'm glad they survived, at least. Though I wish something more had come of this plot thread than a mulligan. Well, I guess there was the loss of Xykon's phylactery, and Redcloak getting some distance.
    My pronouns are they/them.
