    I'm liking Malack less and less. Too much of a pushover.

    Wait! We should make sure that he's a witch before burning him. Do you know if he weighs the same as a duck?
    My correct prediction.


    I am currently working on a new (needless) OotS compilation, similar to this or this, pm me if you'd like to help.

    Thanks to Serpentine for the excellent avatar!

    We all miss Thog. He may have been evil, but he was darn good comic relief.
    At least we know the glamour won't work, since Durkon's got true seeing. Unless it's dispelled. Or Tarquin stays out of the spell's range and lets Malack handle him. I guess it could go eithe way, really.

    I was expecting the axe that Tarquin had during the earlier strips. This new one took me by surprise. It is perhaps the most evil looking weapon I have ever seen.

    EDIT: Huh. It's the same one as in the flashbacks. I must have been thinking of the axe thog used in the gladiator match.

    So Tarquin will pretend to be Thog, eh? I approve. I suppose he'll be at an advantage with everyone assuming he's an idiot.

    I love how Tarquin calls Nale "O Great Leader of the Linear Guild." He probably didn't have a trace of (detectable) sarcasm, but I imagine it in the most sarcastic tone possible anyway.

    This just seems so disadvantageous for the OOTS. Hopefully V makes a reappearance, otherwise it's gonna take a big intervention for them to make it through.

    Also, Tarquin's lack of improper grammar was quite amusing.

    Yet more evidence that Sabine is a demoness? Though we know that she's a succubus, there's been a sliver of doubt.

    Interesting. Now if Durkon's True Sight gets dispelled/cancelled somehow, Tarquin's disguise and probable ranks in Bluff might just work.

    Awesome! I'm curious how long before the Order finds out Tarquin double-crossed them…

    Heh heh. Thog.

    By the way Tarquin stressed the phrase "end of the mission," I'm willing to venture a guess and say that he's still planning on betraying Nale to Malack at the end of all this little adventure

    On another note: it always rocks when a comic goes up while you're randomly perusing the site!

    As suspected, Tarquin is following his own agenda, that seems to count on the Order not knowing he doublecrossed them. I'll be interested to see what it is.

    Yeah, Tarquin and Malack definitely have some unspoken plan to later dispose of Nale, what with that stress on the 'end' of the mission...

    i doubt Durkons true seeing is going to matter much he never saw Tarquins helmet so he wouldnt realise that its not Thog

    they get to live like gods controlling a third of the continent

    but yes they do plan to kill Nale, long before the end of the mission as soon as there reasonably confident they can dow hat needs to be done with the gate
