    Wow, very impressive display of gathered goblins and hobgoblins. I really thought there were next to no goblins left, guess that shows I was wrong.

    Very nice comic, all in all.

    This bodes ominously for Our Intrepid Heroes.

    Also, this comic was posted the night before Barack Obama's State of the Union Address.


    Coincidence?

    ...I've been playing FFRP too much.

    Because my mind immediately thought of another interpretation of 'curtains'.

    A little more hinting about the MITD. He has trouble pulling on things and is much better at pushing.... Hmmm...

    Looks like a big, important speech is on it's way!

    Looks like Redcloak has to put out some bad news, but has to dress it up as nice as possible...

    Hang on, I know there weren't many there but why are there any regular goblins at all?

    The goblins that died in the first dungeon were not the entirety of the goblin race. This city has been under hobgoblin control for almost an entire YEAR, it makes sense that some regular goblins from other part of the world would have emigrated to join the Great Goblin Nation to the south.
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    I'd guess Azure city has been attracting greenskins since its liberation by the goblin hordes.

    Great comic.

    For some reason the art lends itself surprisingly well for huge crowds like the audience. I can't even begin to imagine the work that goes into constructing it but I greatly appreciate it.

    Also... The plot thickens.

    Poor Redcloak, he's sacrificed a lot in the name of Goblinkind hasn't he.

    Wow, very intriguing and with great graphic!
    MitD singing the tune is priceless, and now I really wait for Redcloak's speech, even if (maybe?) it will be "only" about the philactery.

    Hmmm, I thought all of the Hobgoblins would have been ordered to look for the Phylactery. Or maybe that's what this speech is going to address...

    They found the phylactery, and Redcloak is going to announce he's about to leave the city for a while. Seems fairly likely.

    So are they applauding Redcloak himself, or something behind him that we can't see in this strip ?

    MitD music is green... just like Elan's. Maybe he is a bard :-)
    OK, not serious there... maybe ALL music in OOTS has green notes.

    When Redcloak looks in the mirror, his reflection has one right eye..... I think he is speaking to himself and also to the person his reflection reminds him of.

    Uh oh. This reminds me of what I read of Lincoln's assassination... well, not the play part, but the scene seems similar... a box style veranda.

    Also, the foreshadowing title...

    I love the relentless effort on the comic, as usual. Very satisfying comic, since everything fitted in and was in perfect character.

    I'm reading too deep into this, aren't I.
