    Well Vaarsuvius is alive anyway.

    And I got memories of Shojo's failed resurrection. Nice little joke at the Lawful v Chaotic viewpoint as well.

    Edit: Nice dig at the Lawful alignment too.

    I told you that Familicide destroys the soul of Black Dragons and Descendents. NOw everything's in FUBAR.
    At least V's knocked out.

    No X's, so s/he's still alive.

    Like the pace of change from the drama of the previous strips to more light-hearted humor. Still want to know what's going to happen to V though... will the OotS stumble upon the trap? And will V confess to the soul splice? Ooh boy, the suspense is making me real tense!

    They don't look x-ed out. Blackwing's probably alive for now.

    Do we think we're looking at Vaarsuvius and Blackwing from the fourth wall of the shaft, or could there be a passage that leads into the shaft?

    EDIT: partially ninja'd

    Isn't a diamond needed for Resurrection? Or a I missing/forgetting something? (The latter being quite possible.)

    You can see the diamond dust as Durkon completes the spell.

    Though V's alive, it doesn't appear like he's gonna be up anytime soon.
    On the other hand it's a neat move that Girard's people won't return because they can sence the Ressurector's alignement.

    Any non-lawful-good-guy the order knows that can ressurect?

    Oh, cant they just look down and see a ragtag bunch of adventurers and help them? You'd think a bunch of magical people could SCRY if they get rezzed by a Good guy.

    The stuff Durkon is throwing in the air in Panel #6 is diamond dust.

    My guess is that V was removed from picture for that particular reason. Namely, to not have to confess to soul splice for a bit longer.

    So, if they have a scroll of Resurrection and Elan or Haley use it - they should be able to raise them, right?

    Diamond disappears upon casting probably what the light specks are, unless its diamond dust of course

    Well, now we know that resurrection isn't working. I find it interesting that all the descendants share Girard's views. Or at least this one. I would think there should be at least one that would want life over hating paladins.

    The diamonds are material components to the spell, and are consumed when the spell is cast, regardless of the soul's return to the body or not. I think.

    Of course, it didn't appear to work that way for Shojo's failed resurrection, so that explanation is probably incorrect.

    EDIT: ninja'd by The Giant. And a couple lesser people

    I can't help being reminded of a Trivial Pursuit game piece when I see that monitoring device. And with everyone racing to the gates, it's like the world is their big game board. Except the outcome of this game won't be quite so trivial.

    Take it in along with the title of the comic, "Case in Point." The two lawful characters are doing exactly what Haley is accusing lawful characters of doing, you see. :P

    I very much doubt it. The only in-comic thing we know of that can annihiliate souls is the Snarl. Even Xykon can only Soul Bind.

    Besides, Tiamat would probably have been even more upset with the IFCC if the dragons' souls had been annihilated rather than consigned to spend an eternity with her in the afterlife. Upset enough to kill.

    EDIT: It occurs to me that the other gates have been destroyed in a clockwise direction, but Kraagor's is next that way. Speculation:

    Nobody's going to find Girard's Gate - the three groups will show up, they'll fight it out, and then Xykon & co. will decide it's not worth the effort and fly off to K's gate.

    Somehow I get the feeling that Vaarsuvius is now stuck in some sort of three-dimensional maze.

    Or four-dimensional. Hey, anything's possible!
    I prepared EXPLOSIVE RUNES this morning.
