    Hurray Miko! As much as I like Redcloak, I hope Miko pwns him like the bearer of the Crimson Mantle that he is! Even Xykon is betting against him!

    Plot advancement, who woulda thunk it?

    So I guess the Crimson Mantle holds some significance, whatever that means. I'm guessing Redcloak and Xykon had a run in with the Sapphire Guard earlier in their carrier.

    Loved the throwawy joke, and I'm always up for a good battle scene. This introduced some new plot points("Crimson Mantle?") and is strong and fast-paced throughout. 8/10.

    Something tells me Redcloak's loyalty to his master is about to take another dip.

    Miko has taken a few more hits than I expected. This is not a good opening for her.

    I bet the Crimson Mantle is a goblin equivalent of the Saphire guard.
    Especially since their both non main colors.

    Is it just me or is the URL botched? I was checking periodically, then found out about the new one from a friend. When I went to giantitp.com/comics/ootslatest.html, I saw yesterday's... had to click the forward arrow to fix it.

    So where do I get a #1 hand thingy?

    Redcloak is probably cursing the transition to 3.5 rules by now--that Harm spell would have had Miko all but dead with no save under 3.0, forcing her to immediately use her entire Lay on Hands charge for the day (however much that is--ever get the feeling that Miko--who, after all, did start out as a Monk--used CHA as one of her dump stats?) right then and there and letting Redcloak press the attack.

    Wait.

    Azure City is the hometown of the Sapphire Guard. Why's Redcloak so surprised to see one of them near their own territory?

    So, it's Cleric vs Paladin, then? Hmm.

    He's more curious as to why a Paladin would be on something as unimportant as watchtower duty.

    So, it would seem that Redcloak is pretty up there in levels, too. I mean, Miko has to be, by definition 17th level (4 attacks per round, with at least 2 levels of Monk means 15 levels of Paladin). They seem to be a roughly even match (though Redcloak doesn't appear to be a melee build, meaning Miko might have the advantage since this is hand to hand here), meaning Redcloak is probably roughly the same level as Miko.
