    As much as I'm angry at redcloak for killing Thanh, I wish he'd kill Tsukiko already.

    Interesting. It looks like she's looking for the other part of the ritual.

    Hmm, Tsukiko has been a tad more proactive than I anticipated. This may put paid to Redcloak's plan for the phylactery. Even if he talks his way out of this, she'll probably voice her (now correct) theories to Xykon.

    EDIT: ThePhantom's theory is also intriguing. Has she reverse engineered the ritual, figured out its true purpose and wants Redcloak's copy for corroboration?

    In any case, the next few strips will be pretty tense.

    Uh oh I hope Tsukiko won't really realize Redcloak has it...

    Otherwise this could get reaaally ugly...

    The phylactery wasn't the first thing that I thought of, I was thinking more about the details of the ritual.

    I wonder if she is going to be as flippant next comic?

    Nice poker face by both of them.

    But Redcloak, man (ok, goblin), just grow a spine. Kill Tsukiko and turn her to dust. Just tell Xykon you killed her because she annoyed you (should he ask) and move on. You're playing rough on Team Evil and who dies surely won't complain either, remember?

    Nice save. Say what you want about that goblin, he knows that villains should have good bluff skill.

    If Xykon is relying on Tsukiko for the ritual I am pretty sure that even if Redcloak kills her, Xykon will probably congratulate him and the force him to raise her.

    It's not really about Tsukiko anymore. If Redcloak kills her, Xykon will be pissed, and at this point, Redcloak's pissing off Xykon is likely to make Gobbotopia a brief footnote in history.

    I was wondering if RC would show some of his newfound spine to Tsukiko, but I guess we'll have to wait a little more for that. I wonder if she's searching for something related to the ritual...

    She probably is, but I wouldn't put it past anyone on Team E to kill people just to find a remote.

    Nice fan poster of The Dark One. Oh, and tensions. Lots of it. Presumably about the missing parts of the ritual or the phylactery. Anyway, he looses no time hiding it. So, as many guessed, there is soeme double-crossing going on.

    Nice! I was falling asleep on my first day of class but this did the trick. Also, gotta love the wight with Thanh's shoes. He follows in his footsteps. Also, assuming Thog is a goner, he carries on the legacy of evil, dim-witted, tusked sidekick.

    And why is it always the goblins with goatees?

    That's the 4th one by my count.
    Actually, looking back on Thanh, Chief, and Kubota, it's always the guys with any facial hair.

    On a more serious note, does that mean there's be something special for the printed version of #827? Same thing happened for #50, #311, #337, and #430 (strips with "remaining fractions," so to speak).

    EDIT: And does this mean Tsukiko is Neutral Evil leaning towards Chaos? Nevermind. I misread it as Tsukiko watching Real Housewives of Tarterus, but she wanted to watch something else now.

    Assuming what Xykon might do is always a gamble, but Redcloak has no choice if he does not want to get replaced as Second in Command. We (readers of the comic) have rather strong reasons to assume Xykon is working on replacing Redcloak and he is smart enough to suspect something as that (given how Tsukiko behaves and that she admitted Xykon gave her stuff to say that will silence Redcloak) as well.

    So it does not come down to "Redcloak cannot risk to let Tsukiko live" but to "He cannot risk letting her run around anymore". Before she showed up he had a relatively stable relationship with Xykon. Yes, he was the follower, but it worked for him. Now with Tsukiko in the picture, that already has changed a lot!

    Actually, I think Xykon only loathes Redcloak the way he does because he has no spine at all, even in situations where he really should. Showing some might not create a "I will kill you" but "Nice to see you finally develop some spine but note I'll kill you if you do more".

    Yeah no, its not gonna work like that. Xykon doesnt trust Redcloak at all anymore and hes relying on Tsukiko for the ritual. Hes either gonna be angry and force him to resurect her or get her resurected (or maybe even turned into an intelligent undead...hell she'd like that) by someone else after killing Red and turning Gobbotopia into a burning wasteland.

    Beside, I'm pretty sure Tsukiko can defend herself. She definitly aint just a low-level paladin he can one-shot, especially after using most of his spells against the resistance.

    So this is a 'study in viridian' - which I assume is goblinoid blood. Now, viridian is the color of chromium (III) oxide. Now, chromium can have many different forms carrying various amounts of oxygen. So presumably the evolution of goblin races led them to adopt a chromium-based oxygen-carrier, with chromium (III) oxide being the oxygen carrying state. My guess is that there a couple of suitable amino acids present to displace the oxygen in the deoxygenated form.
