    That was to be expected. It was going way too easy for the order.

    Now, did Serini write down the correct coordinates in her diary? Seeing that Xykon is coming close to Girard's Gate first, I guess she did!

    On behalf of YoSaffBridge, a collected gent who also hails from the UK, I would like to apologize for the time (times?) he told your lovely children that they were possessed by El Diablo. He has his own issues to work out, and occasionally suffers from the honest delusion that small children are demons. Plus, heís a bastard. I guess thatís not really an excuse, but I did say these would be sincere.

    ...

    Girard is definitely speaking above the characters, establishing himself as quite an authority around here, and he pretty much fooled the Good's greatest bastions in the OOTS world, plus he seems to throw in a lot of his own opinions to the mix...

    ...and he seems to look quite a lot like Rich to me.

    Huh.

    Good comic, though. Quite a twist, left my jaw opened.

    In all honesty, that wasn't really a smart move from Girard.
    Even if he and Soon weren't best buddies, pulling this move has basically endangered the entire world.

    I wonder if he gave the correct coordinates to the other members?

    Fascist appears to have been spelled differently in panel 2:

    That said- this looks like an interesting turn in the plot.

    It protects it from everybody- if someone had extracted the info from Soon's lackeys, they will discover that the place is wrong.

    Girard is totally awesome. But he should have trusted Soon more.

    I mean, what are they going to do now? Run off to Kraagor's gate? Girard's screwed everyone over!

    And the jibe at Soon's religion was a little unnecessary, but hey, he's still awesome.

    I was expecting something horrible to happen, like a giant monster, or even an illusion of a giant monster, but this is so much more cruel. Excellent choice of revenge, Girard!

    Oh man that made me laugh so much. And the party is stuck on that continent because they have to stop Team Evil and this is the next gate they are heading too! So no rushing off to Kragor's gate.

    *edit* and now we know at least two of his levels :)

    Whether it's bluff or not, I saw it coming. So. Hard.

    I found Girard's insult about the paladins' faith out of place though. I can understand this kind of comment in a world where there's no evidence whether gods exist or not, but in the OotSverse, gods prove they exist on a daily basis.

    Yeah, I kind of doubt the illusionist with contempt for authority figures would be on the Lawful Good side of the alignment chart.

    Huh, Girard's a bit of a prick. Also happened to be completely wrong about Soon (maybe not Miko though). Makes you wonder how these two adventured together for so long.
