    Err, well, if the whole 'taking over the world' thing doesn't work out, perhaps our 'favorite' lich could move into stand-up.

    Ah, Xykon's casual banter in combat, gotta love it.

    "not again", eh? So she knew Redcloak from somewhere?

    Yeah, the "again" bit struck me too... think it meant the cage though, not redcloak. Otherwise Redcloak wouldn't have addressed her as "a palidan of the sapphire" thingy.

    You are not alone. The entire Miko Fan Club is rooting for Ms. Miyazaki as well.

    At any rate, I'm glad to see that she was in the process of owning Redcloak.

    Is anyone else amazed at how Rich is able to address the major concerns/comments from the forums? For a gent who doesn't change scripts based on our crazed ramblings it's the sign of an incredible plotter who really thinks out some minutia his story lines.

    Just wanted to say, really enjoying this ride...

    Wow, right on time. I come home from a crappy day of crazy preacher-wives and drunk fathers (not mine, he dead.) to a new OOTS. Thanks, Rich.

    Now, "not again" -- not another Forcecage or not another getting beaten by ?

    Woo hoo -- "raise dead." I thought it was funny.

    And "a-material for the PCs," because when are meta-jokes and breaking the 4th wall NOT funny?

    Too bad isn't :wight miko: yet. :(

    Did Xykon and Nale attend the same villain school? That speech was positively Naleish.

    That was a gem of a joke, and the dead guard has no sense of humor whatsoever. Though that's not too unusual for the deceased.

    I took it as a reference to her fight with Belkar. Once again, she has the evildoer defeated, on the ground, waiting for the coup de grace--and a third party interferes, stopping her.

    In fact, if you count her battle with Roy in #200, being unable to finish off a (alleged) villain is becoming something of a theme. Must be awfully frustrating.
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    That was good for a chuckle, actually.

    And the thought that went through my head after reading Miko's response to being forcecaged was "Oh no, not again."

    Great comic today... kinda snuck up on me there. I'm really liking Xykon's whole "I've read the Evil Overlord list" shtick. I do have one rules question though, it says in the description that Forcecage extends into the ethereal plane. Wouldn't that have blocked Xykon from passing through it in ghost form? I mean, that's ethereal right? Sorry to nitpick and please correct me if I'm wrong because I'm fairly new to D&D.

    "Not AGAIN"? I sense a backstory about to unfold. Or, more likely, we'll get just a bit more info and than have to wait about 100 more strips before we get the whole story.

    A good reason to have a throwable dagger, an enemy near dead on the floor and you unable to reach them.

    Agree with Xykon. Does seem a little incompetent of the guardsmen, but their mistakes make the funny and hindsight (things like "how about having some people stationed by the beacon") is always far clearer.

    Enjoyed Xykons speech, is he available for security consulting work as well as stand-up and general liching? :)

    He probably just went to the right or left of it, which can't be shown properly in a 2d comic.

    How much does General Lichery pay?
    Is it anything like General Lechery?

    ;)

    Xykon actually earned all of his money through consulting work, as it is the third highest evil in business, behind (#2) Telemarketing and (#1) Collections. Xykon tried Collections but found it too rough for him. Only Demiliches go in for that sort of thing.
