    Awesome comic, it looks like Redcloak finally accomplished his dream.

    So...I guess Team Peregrine crashed and burned?

    Doh. Stupid me, he's talking about V.

    I feel happy for the goblins, yet terrified at the same time.

    Aaww at the little kid hobgoblin.

    Finally! This really has been just what I was waiting for. I just can not believe it! The characters are acting just as they should, and it is truly, awesomely running as it should. Something in the back of my mind are the predictions spouted by the Oracle. I assume they'll all come true, but have any at all come true already? I guess we will have to wait and see.

    Personally, I'm kind of thinking/wondering what happened to the Linear Guild, and who can forget Helga? (I do think tha was 'er name; Dwarf speak is good) I get the feeling they will finally be back in the game. This is enough, but I want even more!

    Yeah, the textbooks in the second-to-last panel are doing something weird, too. I'll fix these but it will take a bit.

    yeah, this is only gonna end in gobbo blood and tears...

    {edit} since someone asked for it: the text from the text

    In the unholy eyes of the Dark One, no land is more blessed and fortunate than the nation of Gobbotopia. Founded in the late 1184 by the high priest of the Dark One, the nation is largely regarded as being the most powerful, influential, and generally interesting country ever.
    While the majority of Gobbotopia's population is composed of the three goblinoid races (goblins, bugbears, and hobgoblins, with the latter forming 93% of it's permanent inhabitants), the nation's borders are open to all disenfranchised humanoids and thus supports growing comunities of orcs, ogres, xvarts, gnolls (including flinds), trolls, lycanthropes, minotaurs, orogs, medusas, sligs, grimlocks, lamias, hill giants, ettins, yakfolk, ettercaps, half-orcs, half-

    It's actually not at all clear whether he's talking about V or Team Peregrine... I'm actually inclined to believe the latter, given that he called it an "elven insurgents" rather than "that one elf who attacked".

    The textbooks are transparent and it bugs me. That said, I really like this turn in the comic's direction. New goblin nations are awesome.
    I take this game with the seriousness it deserves.
    Not all that much. It's a game.

    The flag is very appropriate, red background for the red cloak green star for the standard goblins orange for the hobos, and brown for the bugbears, with the purple of the dark one over them all

    Nice. I'm kinda hoping Team Peregrine and the Resistance fail miserably. >_>

    Textbook says bugbears also live in Gobbotopia and that various monster races (including giants, monstrous humanoids, and half- stuff) are welcome, which kinda throws out the idea that Redcloak only cares about goblinoids. (Although I can't help but think that the Plan does not have a place for creatures like chromatic dragons, who get the same treatment...)

    EDIT: To the above, nice catch. But what about blues and aquatic goblinoids?! (Well, I suppose the latter could fall under green...)

    Didn't see that coming. Redcloak just made a ballsy move methinks... Xykon wants to leave Azure City, but Redcloak is laying down the foundations for a goblin nation... sounds like trouble.

    Unless they weren't intending to bring the Goblin Army with them? Surely they were...

    Goes right with my theory that it will take some serious action from Team Peregrine to get the baddies to leave now!

    EDIT: Check out the little hobgoblin kid! Is this the first hobgoblin child we've seen in the comic?

    I wonder how many of the seventeen nations are short-lived desert fringe kingdoms? Great comic, love to see more of the world fleshed out!

    Also, I'm glad that Gobbotopia is accepting Xvarts into its midst!

    Were sligs, xvarts, and flinds (at least as a separate MM entry) ever in 3.x? Those might be some escapees from the Dungeon of Dorukan.

    Can't say I like the changing of our National Anthem's lyrics to suit some goblins...

    And I know it's unintentional, but I'm seeing the comparison of the elves to terrorists and the American military to an occupation force.

    Just bad timing, I guess. And I know it's just a comic, but some things hit harder to home than others.

    As a long-time follower of China-related issues, I bust out laughing at the line about Cliffport 'influencing Gobbotopia's stance on human slavery through economic engagement.'

    Well done, I say.
