    What is with the speckles on Redcloak's face?

    Good comic. Biggest question is where did Xykon go?

    So...Where's Xykon...

    I think it's a new art style.

    Funny how Jirix remembers the afterlife, but Roy doesn't...

    I'm liking the Dark One's sense of humor.

    It'll be interesting to see how Gobbotopia fares when Redcloak packs up, though.

    Dithering.
    The gif image format only supports 256 colours, and the original comic image definitely has more than that amount, due to crayon drawings.
    So, when the image was saved in gif, it suffered from dithering, as the program had to chose 256 colours that would look the closest to the original ones.

    Well now, that was an interesting comic. Certainly puts the last couple in perspective. Very interesting to see what the afterlife for the Dark One's faithful is like, too.

    Nice ending jokes as well.

    And yeah, where Xykon is will definitely be the new big thing to speculate about. My first guess, just as a shot in the dark: he went to see the Oracle.

    And yeah, there's something off about the images, particularly with Redcloak's face. I think it seems like some of whatever filter or format or whatever it is the Giant uses for the Crayons panels got applied to the regular ones, too.

    Roy remembers "bits" of the afterlife. Specifically, I seem to recall, the bits that take place outside the Big Golden Gates. I guess Jirix never got as far as the BGG-equivalent for whatever plane that was.

    So the Dark One is having doubts about Redcloak? Hmm.

    And what is with the speckles on his face?

    The dots are a side-effect of reducing the comic's colors to fit the GIF format. I doesn't usually happen because there are usually less than 256 colors in an OOTS comic, but the crayons changes that. (Please, no new arguments about how I shouldn't be using GIFs anymore.)

    I didn't notice them until they were pointed out here, I'll see if I can fix it so that they're not noticeable and repost the comic.

    If that one true prophet stuff is correct....

    The Dark One may be playing Redcloak in a sense. Redcloak is intended to do the plan, but only to either give a distraction from Jirix or to act as ultimately back up to Jirix's actions in establishing a Goblin Nation.

    Regardless of the Morality of the Plan, I wish Jirix well, and hope in time the hate can fade between all sides.

    Take your time, I kinda like the look. It's like Redcloak has a bit of stubble going on. It's kinda all over his face but still.

    Also, thanks for more crayon art! For some reason that always makes me happy.

    I'll have to second this, the crayon art is awesome. Now, as to where Xykon is... I like the Oracle theory, but come to think of it, didn't he dissapear somewhere in SoD? Where did he go that time? I'll have to get the book back out.
