    Saw the comic post from Twitter. It feels cool to be one of the first people to read this! (I haven't actually read it yet.)

    we should have a moment of silence for the dead adventurer, so try not to jingle any of his valuables as you remove them

    whats with the state of his clothes? they seem pretty ragard and torn i would have thought the clan would ahve put him in a more luxurious coffin with padding and stuff

    im probably overthinking it but looking at taht hole on the left side of his skill (could possible be a ear hole i guess...?) and the state of his right arm (where the clothes are broken almsot look like the bone broke) im starting to suspect foul play

    Maybe the Speak with Dead-corpse's answer will turn out to actually be a bit more accurate?

    Nice strip, good progression. It makes me feel satisfied, and amused because I don't find it hard to believe Roy would take it literally.

    So much for the Girard-is-the-statue theory.

    Drat. My money was on the idea that he turned himself into a statue so he could be raised later.

    I hope the order brought some good spells for defending a location. Or finding an elf. This could get ugly if someone shows up soon.

    Probably not, since the spell only pulls from the memories of the corpse. Familicide happened long after his death so the corpse would have no "memory" of it.

    However, I do find it odd that the crypt could be opened as a "secret" panel. Usually, bodies are interred in sealed crypts, so I suspect something of value would be here. Unless it's a deliberate red herring, which I wouldn't really see the value for inasmuch as you'd only waste someone's time for perhaps another 5-20 minutes.

    Oooooh, interesting twist. I honestly expected him to still be alive.

    Still, I love the punchline. Silent panel, and then deadpan horror. Priceless. XD

    I was amused to see that Roy made Haley check the statue's crack; good to know his paranoia has reached that level. Also, I was eager to see how powerful Girard was, but I guess not.

    I like the fact he has a hole in his head for a nose. Though I was hoping the tattoo would have been down to the bone. I don't really know why though.

    the tomb itself seems pretty low key, looks like Girard was pretty uncerimoniously dumped in with only a couple blankets, either the clan is very unceremoniously about dead bodies or for some reason they couldnt do much elaborate preparation

    Like 842, this was one of those "why all crazy SMALL fan theories are wrong, explained" comics.

    Yes, I know we predicted the Familicide one, but remember all the "why the bodies aren't that old," "why Belkar didn't smell them," theories? And Rich covered them all in 842?

    Well 846 does that for all the gag theories that 844 and 845 brought us.

    What if The rift (or the keys to the room of Rift) is embedded in his butt bone?
    Just last night, I dreamnt that Draketooths had a restaurant with dead people inside. Unlike Dried up draketooths, the people's head was smashed and stabbed. When I go to the forum, the new comic revealed that Draketooths murdered them to get their golds. I know it was a dream but it was kinda creepy one to see Draketooths (nonexistent) extremism.
    P.S- COmpliment to RIch on ability to drawn non stick figure skeleton with pant legs (Other than fantasy fantasy).

    Good point. I expect that would depend on how deep this statue was in the complex. It didn't seem that deep, so I'd think traps would have already been triggered, but it could be an "Indiana Jones" thing where the rule for the trap is, "if someone is messing with this button, assume entire site has been compromised and nuke site from orbit" or similar. Just have to convince entire family that statue is never to be touched, and any information given under duress (torture, speak with dead, etc) is designed to convince outsiders to start searching the statue.

    Anybody notice in that tomb, to the left of the pillow there's a white speck there? I thought it might be a tooth, but it's not the same color as the rest of Girard's teeth or any of his bones. And his tomb was hidden under that statue. I mean, I guess it could be nothing, but I'm just wondering what that white speck might be next to Girard's head. Ioun stone? Message of some kind? Random art mistake?
