    Great and even before the end of the year. I was gonna post a topic to ask if that's possible, but you beat me to the punch

    A little anticlimatic, but it's nice to see the change of pace and story finally moving on.

    The Clock just struck twelve. Team Evil is on the move now.

    The big question is how much time has past since the OOTS left the Empire on the carpet.

    You know looking at that net they use to sieve the sewer water, I would think that the holes are to big for the job I.e. the phylactery would just slip out between them if it was expelled that way.

    The goblins fighting monsters in the background reminds me of a little quote

    So the philactery went to the right...

    A four way battle is coming.

    Or maybe more, if any other side decide to interfere.

    Yessssss. Tarquin vs Xykon is going to be AWESOME.

    Also, it looks like the rift over Azure City is considerably larger than the last time we saw it.

    Ok, if no one else is going to ask:

    Aquatic Goblins?!?
    Water Breathing requires only 5th level clerics, which I presume Gobbotopia has plenty of, at 2hrs/level. Redcloak alone could cast five of them per day at 30+ hours total duration divided amongst targets, assuming he's at least 15th level (which he is, since he uses Summon Monster VIII).

    EDIT: Alternately, if Xykon or Redcloak has a Ring of Elemental Command (Water), they can cast it without restriction.

    I was starting to wonder what had happened to Xykon.

    Remember this? This webcomic has the awesome distinction of making me go "S***!" out loud when I saw that last panel. That's how much it moved me.

    And now, it just made me exclaim "Oh, F***."

    My respect for you and your craft just keep growing, Giant. Nice work! Please keep it up!

    BTW, were those Water Goblins, or just regular goblins affected by some "breath-under-water" spell?

    They look like the aquatic goblins from DStP the book (page 572a).

    Wasn't expecting an update pre-New Years, so cheers Giant.

    Edit: Is that an Otyugh I see? Any Goblins planning to cheese their way to Ur Priest levels by messing around in it's hole I wonder?

    Looking at them all wearing those amulets, I'm guessing they're regular goblins who are also clerics/sorcerer/wizards and using magic, or those amulets themselves provide the underwater breathing.

    Not surprising, given how utterly PISSED Xykon was when it was lost. Who knows what else he would not have allowed Redcloak to regenerate (after burning/blasting/ripping it off him) if he didn't spare the manpower?

    Given how Redcloak has given up racism towards other goblins, why not? Having a mandate from their god helps massively.

    Aquatic Goblins. If it was the spell, then the hobgoblin cleric should have gills and webbed feet as well.

    I thought that at first, but if you look closely at that panel their feet are webbed, and their ears have the look of a water creature rather than the look of the normal goblin/hobgoblin.
    I am... no one.

    In addition to what Cranica said, stats for aquatic goblins can be found in Unearthed Arcana. Since Gobbotopia is to be a haven for all goblins, if there are aquatic goblins in the OOTSiverse, I'm sure many of them would flock (swim?) to Gobbotopia.
    Here is a numbering of all character appearances in OOTS

    That is just so cool. I didn't notice that myself. So nice to see these little-used racial variants used. Hey, I just want to try them out myself. A water-based goblin campaign, hmmm.....
