    When did Tarquin decide to team up with Nale?

    If this is the Linear Guild, they certainly had a powerup compared to last time.

    How are they flying in Windy Canyon without difficulty?

    I predicted they'd wait a little longer before launching their ambush.

    Should get interesting very quickly.

    I just happened to be on Twitter when the post went up about the new comic. I was just about to hit the sack. Instead I have new OotS. How awesome is that?

    Huh, I don't no why, but I didn't expect any of the other sides to show up so soon. I guess they better have, or else the book would have just gotten ridiculously long, but still.

    Hey! I was actually on when the new comic came up! I should go buy a lottery ticket, it's my lucky day!

    Uh-oh, the drow is present, but no arcane support for OOTS; not good!

    Can anyone else sense that Malack is going to turn-coat?

    Empowered Vitrolic Sphere? Nice. Z is certainly an extreme threat, and it seems that he's at least the Order's level even without taking his LA into account. I don't think they can win this fight without V.

    Do you even follow the comic?

    That spell seems awesome, but also icky and gloopy-green.

    I didn't know clerics could cast overland flight though... but it's probably a spell I should know but don't.
    Can only thank GitP for being so good for so long.

    My question as well! Maybe they are above the main effect, since V could not take off, maybe they started in the air and then entered the Canyon?

    Also agree with Loki_42... this is a bit sooner than I expected, though why I have no idea since it seems like they were not too far behind the Order...

    Let the games begin!
    78% of all DM's start their first campaign in a tavern. If you're among the 22% who didn't, copy and paste this into your signature and tell us where you DID begin.The players were attacked individually on the road on the way to town by werewolves. To survive, they had to team up then and there without knowing anything about eachother (literally -- all character sheets were completed without other players' knowledge).

    Maybe anti air defense went down with the death of Draketooths.
    I think they're pinned in the temple if they aren't dissolved by acid.

    From this comic, we learn that the mastaba on top of the ziggurat is not much more than twenty feet across.

    Hmm, that makes sense.

    Giant, just to let you know, the link to OoTS latest while on comic 846 still considers 846 the new one. It normally does this, but not for this long, IIRC.

    makes me wonder if Girard is about to get up

    OoTS is currently trapped in the tower
    there are enemies directly attacking the Ziggurat
    Durkon conveniently has no detect magic
    there lacking an arcane caster to fight Z

    could be one of the best set up twists ever
