    Oh sh- Did not see that one coming!

    It's a good thing they didn't leave any survivors...I don't even want to see how pissed Xykon would be if he found out about this... (Although, if the paladin has levels in Fist of Raziel, I guess we'll never have to find out)

    Huh, well that certainly wasn't what I was expecting.

    That was awesome.

    Xykon probably doesn't even know that they found it, so all the hobs will still be caught up searching!

    Will Xykon know if it's destroyed?

    Pleasant surprise is pleasant.

    This could mean Xykon won't be visiting the Western Continent as soon as predicted. But the Resistance Azure City Underground aren't out of the woods yet.

    Though can't they just have someone cast speak with dead?

    Yep -- and Xykon's cast it on goblins/hobgoblins for picayune reasons in the past, like finding out where his keys are, and so on...

    Beautiful. I was perfectly content with letting the phylactery end up back in the baddies hands, as I figured when it was lost, either side could have found it first. I really like where this is going.... as I pretty much always do with this comic.

    I will, however, take this time to say "neener neener" to everyone complaining about goblins finding the phylactery last strip.

    They could, but they might just regard this as another attack from the resistance. Then again, they might cast speak with dead on EVERY group attacked in the city, just to gather intel. I guess it depends on how regular these attacks are. And I just said the word "attack" in every sentence. Attack.

    It's an interesting twist, but I still can't help but feel a little disappointed: This means it'll be another 200 strips before we ever see what the goblins are up to again.

    Wow -- the good guys pull a "I don't have to collect up all the quest items -- I just have to take you out when you find it(in some stories the villian finds ONE and then waits while the hero gets all the rest)"

    I did NOT see that one coming and this is a real bad development for the X man and even more so for wrong-eye.

    Exactly. And if they know, then I have no doubt our favorite epic level undead bundle of badness knows as well.

    I must say it was very, very clever move. The best course of action now would be to teleport out with the thingmabob into a secure area far away. I wonder if it's possible considering Dorukan's epic spell.

    It's not a very bright idea to mess with Xykon's stuff... He's not going to be happy when he finds out.

    It is completely untrackable and untracable with more anti-divination spells than most of us could think of. Really good for stopping others from finding it... Not so much for if you lose it.

    HOLY ... nice twist, Giant. I already wonder what Xykon's reaction to THAT one will be ... And how the Resistance might be using it to their advantage ...

    It's possible the Resistance or Azure City Underground or Azure City Liberation Front or whatever has agents trying to watch every search team they can.

    On Divinations: The Cloister spell should be protecting the hobgoblins from divination as well, since Xykon has been casting it every couple of weeks or so. (see panel 7)
