    Huh. No acknowledgment at all.

    Though the implications...

    ...And how did MitD know it was half a ritual?

    Isamu...

    There are never acknowledgements of hundreds.

    I'm not sure whose head he is munching, though. I was wondering if it was hers for a while.

    And, I don't think you want him to sweep you in his arms, think of the levels lost in an instant!

    I'm glad we're sticking with the MITD's quest to find O-Chul. His development as a potential ally to the good side, is intriguing.

    And lols all around for teenage emo spellcasters who depend on undead liches to give them value.

    Half a ritual?
    To do with the gates maybe?

    Presumably it's Xykon's part of the gate ritual. The big question is just what Tsukiko figured out about it....

    Not just any half a ritual. The divine half to the ritual to unlock the Gates. Tsukiko might need more Cleric/Favored Soul/Whatever levels to actually cast it, though...

    I think that's yet another example of TMitD mispronouncing something.

    Wow, I knew Tsukiko was evil, but I did not know she was so deranged like that. Hope she finishes the ritual thing, eh?

    Ooo, yeah, I bet she's been asked to find out the second half of Redcloak's Gate ritual.
    You know, I didn't even noticed it was #700.

    In an earlier strip, Isamu was killed and turned into a Wight. WightIsamu is the one eating the human head.

    Wait a second...

    If it's a complicated magic ritual that Xykon, an epic-level sorcerer, cannot understand...

    ...Then it's a divine spell.

    He's using Tsukiko as backup. He doesn't trust Redcloak to be able to carry out the plan anymore.

    Me Like-y! It was fun to read and I liked the Monster in the Darkness' easy come easy go attitude. I'm not sure I buy the "eternal love of a lich" bit, but I know Rich will make a go of it so I'm on for the ride!

    MitD is AWESOME

    Also I am sure that the spell(Ritual?) has to do with the gates, and techincally Tsukiko can fullfill both of the criteria IIRC it involves both arcane magic and divine one so I guess that technically she can do the ritual alone.

    Edit:WOW 10 post in the time it took me to type the above....also NINJAS EVERYWHERE!!!!

    so, Tsukiko isn't exactly Evil to be evil she just thinks all humans are B words and so Undead logically are the opposite.

    There's a chance she could be redeemed then I guess.

    Well, I don't know about most of her argument, but who knows, maybe Tsukiko really does understand the undead better than the rest of us and she's actually a step ahead of the curve.

    Still, excellent comic, and love seeing recurring wights.

    Err... what the heck is up with the MitD? Secondly, half a ritual?
    SoD and predictions...
    Spoiler
    Show
    So that half of a ritual must be the one that Redcloak gave Xykon, now Redcloak hasn't ever really lied to Xykon, IIRC he did say that the dark one is the one who got to control the rift, and he also said they would split up the world. Sure they don't actually control the Snarl, but Xykon wanted a weapon anyway. Of course, if Xykon isn't as blind as Redcloak he should be able to conclude that if the Snarl doesn't reach out of the rift...


    I also note Solars have a lot of Spellcraft; would have been really nice for that theory if they had legend lore...
