    Ah.

    Once again, it sucks to be Redcloak.

    WOW that was fast! Thank YOU, Mr. Burlew!

    Hobgoblin couple ... that oughta add some fodder to the debate about killing helpless XP fodder, indeed it will.

    "Wrong-eye" -- "Impotence special" -- *chuckle*. Well DONE! I enjoyed this strip!

    Respectfully,

    And further proof appears that Xykon is shifting his trust.

    Or that he's just a tremendous piece of crap. Either way.

    Also, "I crave mortal flesh" made me laugh out loud.

    If Redcloak would have killed her right then and there for that, he would have earned my respect.
    But instead, he choose to be a cowardly wuss.

    Hmm...what to say about this one? Well, it seems that RC does indeed care about the goblins, but he still has no backbone to stand up for them. On the other hand, it is never wise to anger an evil lich that is already mad at you.

    It's tough to be in Wrong-eye's pants.
    The art in the animated hobbo it's excellent, I really like the color scheme.
    but just as some things can be right and useless at the same time, can’t something be wrong...and priceless?

    Poor, poor wrong-eye.

    Nice comic, the slight use of perspective it the last panel works great.

    In this case crave means he wants to eat it, although it's closer to needs I guess- between wanting and needing.

    And the supersize impotence I think is that he's now got Xykon AND Tsukio telling him what to do, which is about five times as humiliating and frustrating as before, if that makes sense.

    Huh, most of the ridiculous, unfounded arguments used to defend racist killing busted, right there

    But then again, it is a forum where people cheer at genocides, just because "they're cool". Huh, human morality (or lack of thereof) never ceases to amaze me.

    Also: the larger the discussion, the faster next comic is, it seems

    What prisoners? And presumably she used to since all her old black squad members were ex-human.

    She probably would have, once they were executed.

    Why wait so long? Bureaucracy, probably. Or maybe they wanted to make sure they'd gotten all the information they could out of them.

    Discretion is the better part of valor

    Redcloak knows he's outgunned by Xykon, even with all the hobgoblins. He needs to complete the Dark One's plan. He will wait, and endure...

    That was a fast update. Probably let it out so that the #707 discussion thread could finally be unstickied before it hit 50 pages. And I'm noticing SoD related material in the comics now. Good for us who've read it.

    Not me. I think she's got an excellent chance of taking Redcloak's position, though.

    Anyway, great comic. If every human with adventurer levels gets scheduled for execution, though, I wonder how many the hobgoblins would have killed off already?
