    Whelp, there's one forum theory confirmed.

    Now lets see if V is going to cop to what really happened. Personally, I think she will.

    Well we know how Draketooth got his name now at least. Way for your actions to come back and bite you V. Also great twist, never saw it coming.

    It was Familicide. Cool. Score 2 for the crazy theory brigade this book. (yes, there was a bit nice amount of evidence towards this, especially the "it was elven lunchtime" thing that came up. Good call.)
    Can only thank GitP for being so good for so long.

    [Nods] The obvious question - what does V tell the others?

    Plot has trumphed rules though: a simple illusion to strengthen the defences is to Shadow Conjure a Sepia Snake Sigil: the spell is permanent until triggered, no material components, and can be cast repeatedly on the same text. Haley and V should have jst been hammered with multiple attacks.

    Still, arguably Haley went through disarming them all - not a spell that can normally be disarmed, but reasonable house rule given it would be wekaer than a true Sepia Snake Sigil.
    Nothing to see here, citizen...

    Let's look on the upside. If Xykon finds out about this, he'll be laughing too hard to defend himself, for a while anyway.

    Was reading through the archives again when this was posted. It seemed like it was too obvious of a fan theory from a beginning, but alas it ended up working out. Weird thing is this may actually make the OoTS's job easier seeing as many of the illusions won't be in play. Granted, it may help all of the other sides to the same degree, we can only hope that Roy and crew can make it there first. :) Great comic as always giant!

    So it has come to this.

    Well done, GITP. Score one nut for the blind squirrels. Let's see if we can break the thread length record again?

    So Girard is a quarter-dragon? I'd have thought that would be a bit more visible, but then, alter self and whatnot...

    Holy crap.

    HOLY CRAP.

    I knew the forum speculation, but I didn't think he'd actually

    Wow.

    Things have just hit the fan.

    Now that my initial reaction is out of the way- I bet that's how Tarquin's last wife died, too. Remember, wording of Familicide was "Every living creature that directly shares your bloodline is dead. Every living creature that is related to any of THOSE creatures is dead." If the Draketooths shared the bloodline, then Penelope would have been screwed by reason of her child with a Draketooth- related to someone who shared that bloodline.

    And I think I recognize most of those under Girard as people dead on the floor. Now to figure out who, if anybody is missing.

    You know I must be wrong. I was lookin at everybody on the fourth row as part of Girard's clan, but many of those are nieces and nephews. I'm not sure he would have brought his brother and sister, and their families into this. Although presumably those families are just as dead.

    See, now I'm convinced. But I still wouldn't rule out the possibility that it's a ruse designed specifically to fool V and the Order - a bit far fetched, but no more far fetched than I thought familicide was to begin with.

    Interesting seeing them work out all the possibilities, too. Reminded me of us.

    Wow, I read the theories, but didn't buy into it. I honestly thought it had been a few months (just in traveling time) since Familicide, so didn't see how the timelines could fit.
    If my text is blue, I'm being sarcastic.But you already knew that, right?
