    Oh, man.

    Implosion looks pretty neat, though.

    Implosion. Was wondering when he'd finally be able to use it.

    Red cloak finally shows who is the boss.

    Also does that mean he is level 19?

    Hm interesting. Sad though, but interesting.

    I hope the infiltrator gets a horrible death by Belkar, Varsuvius, or the others.

    No, that means he went up to level 17 recently.

    This was likely the most violent and depraved installment yet. It really instilled in me a sense of anxiety, all with stick figures.

    So now there's a seventeenth-level cleric in the world.

    On another note, there is now conclusive proof that no one in the Resistance was genre-savvy at all. How did they not expect a betrayal from the guy with that widow's peak?

    I wonder if the begging Goblin prisoner that the resistance killed was a plant designed to hide the fact that one of the prisoners was the true spy.

    Oh dear. Oh dear. Oh dear.

    Still, very smart thinking on Redcloak's part. With all that INT I'm surprised why he didn't consider multiclassing to wizard himself.

    Well I guess that this means that the Hobgoblin in 707 wasn't actually a spy

    And by the way, does anyone have an idea what the big devil in the last 3 panels is? It looks... kind of big. And just a little scary.

    Wooot! New update!

    I don't believe it. I predicted that the resistance had been infiltrated and lo! It is so. That's how Redcloak knew what was going on. I can't believe I actually outguessed Rich Burlew for once. That almost never happens.


    Hmm .. comment.


    Maybe no one else sees this way, but I could do without seeing implosion on-panel again. To my mind, it exceeds PG-13 in terms of violence, being gratuitous and grotesque.

    Of course it IS a viable spell and a powerful one. It is reasonable and appropriate for Redcloak to use it. I'd just prefer not to see the effects on camera. I have an imagination, I don't need to see it.

    ETA: Implosion is 9th level, so does that mean Redcloak is epic level now?

    E AGAIN to add: Wait, what? I thought Jirix was running the city now as the Prime Minister of Gobbotopia? Maybe that's why there are no goblins in Redcloak's forces -- Redcloak has no goblinoids under his command. He's on detached duty with Xykon, but is still kept "in the loop" by the intelligence community. Naturally the phylactery's location would be FLASH directly to him, and he would intervene immediately without stopping to get Jirix's help first.

    Respectfully,

    Brian P.

    At first I was like, "YES, TAKE THAT, DAMN COMMANDER!" but then that Resistance guy died and I kinda liked him.

    EDIT: Looking back at #824, the spy isn't shown successfully hitting any hobgoblin. Nice touch.

    I think the big devil in the last panels is a Cornugon (Horned Devil)


    Big guy in the middle. And yes they are Devils because the Dark One and Redcloak are LE, so no Demons for them!


    Did Niu die in the 7th Panel?

    Edit: Pemdell, you only need to be level 17 to get 9th level spells, Epic levels start at 21 and Epic Magic is brooooken!!! Think Cloister for the effects Epic Magic can have (and personally I think Cloister is one of the most balanced spells)

    Implosion - Redcloak is now capable of level 9 spells, meaning he's level 17.

    Is that Niu dead over there? Will at least Thanh survive?

    Y'know whats really sad though?

    the hobgoblin that got killed when he was thrown off a building…he was probably sent into the cells intentionally. as a decoy for the humans to mistake for a spy. meanwhile they sent in their polymorphed hobgoblin to gain their trust...
    I'm also on discord as "raziere".

    Actually, the spy is the one who killed the Hobby with the phylactery. Hes the one with the crossbow and theres a big crossbow bolt in the Hobby's head.

    No this isn't happening! This shouldn't end like this! I just wanted to see if they would be carted off for execution with other rebels from regions (like Skyrim). Now my Azure City Liberation idea have been scratched.
