    yuk OOTS #371 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is up. Sorry it's a few hours late, my laptop decided to crash as I was saving the completed comic--twice.

    Excellent!!!

    Now I can imagine a Star Wars OotS, that would be so great... :)

    Anyways, Giant, thanks again for this post-comic-a-day week!!

    I'm thinking Miko fits the bill for "stupidity has a place in the progression".

    Another wonderful comic. I love Redcloak's retort in the second panel... zero ranks in Knowledge (What The Hell You're Talking About).

    It's great.
    God, I love to hate Miko.
    'Cause you know, Redcloak is evil and thus can't have feelings like love and stuff.... And the Order is evil, because they've lied. (except they didn't at the time knew Xykon had survived)
    But I'll stop stating the obvious now.

    Starwars references are always fun!
    The roaches with the lightsabers are cool.

    Everything leads to the Dark Side.

    I love the demon roaches with the lightsabers in the last panel...

    Well, y'know I'd have thought that Redcloak would've known that speech a lot better than that.

    Secondly will they team up, or just... not? Miko seems to be annoyed enough at the moment to not care who she's talking to.

    Why are there two discussion threads for 371? Edit: Oh well, looks like the other one's gone now.

    I liked the comic, especially the roaches, but is she missing the force cage in panel 7? Or is that just a view behind the cage?

    And to think I just watched Episode III the other day! (I could never follow Yoda's logic train on what leads to the dark side). But E III does contain my favorite contradictory quote from the movies: When Obi-Wan notes "only Sith deal in absolutes!" I can't help but note that observation is, in fact, an absolute.

    But Star Wars tangents aside: enjoyed this one heaps! Tho I'm not sure if this means Miko is joining "Team Us" or not...

    Bring on the next one, Rich!! Hurry. No, you don't need to sleep, eat, shower or otherwise maintain a "life." More OotS, Now! ;-)

    This is getting better and better + more updates + my favorite vilan is back YES! . I'm going to wish for more OOTS books for my birthday! (only got the first so far).

    I'm chancing my own p1 post on this, I know, but didn't we get a warning about posts would be deleted of they contained the 'page' reference. It seems the posts are begining to appear again. I, for one, would rather they stayed away and left the room for people with sometinh to say.

    I saw that, but decided that it would just be weird looking to have the forcefield when the perspective is in that close. I mean, the proportions are a little wrong to be actually looking in from the inside, but I can deal with a little inconsistency so that the comic looks better.

    There's a problem, though.

    Our favourite outsider -- and the only evil outsider around -- is quite a bit of distance away, and she would be needed about right now.

    Oh come on now, I know you hate Miko, but she has never acted stupid, naive yes, but not stupid. She always took her fighting very seriously, unlike Xykon who thoroughly underestimated OOTS and it was through his crap that they even had a shot.

    Hmm. Miko, once again, completely misinterprets her own situation - looks like we have Blackguard potential again here...

    Damn, Miko is really quick in jumping to conclusions. Even if they for some reason didn't slay Xykon directly, they could've assumed he was destroyed when the castle blew up. Roy also had the lich's crown as a trophy, a fact that was carefully pointed out to Miko, although I supposed the paladin could assume he merely stole it.

    Still, awfully hasty of her. Miko must really, REALLY dislike the Order of the Stick.

    Nope. Just that Miko does not, in fact, know what the hell she's talking about.

    I was wondering when Miko would find that out. Now all she needs is the whole story.

    Going down, next floor Evil Gods, Foul Abominations, and Fallen Paladins.

    Edit:
    Loved the roaches with light-sabres. Where do they come up with this stuff.

    Also note the title - Anyone else think this may have something to do with Miko falling?

    Oh, just re-read the strip: any reason Miko's not behind a Forcecage in Panel 7? Or am I a victim of the ultra-close up?

    I like the Star Wars refernece, I always thought the whole "fear leads to anger" speach thingy was silly if you consider that when Luke Skywalker says he's not afraid Yoda just says "You will be" so it's nice to see it being mangled by Xylon and Co.

    See aforementioned, "laptop crashing while I went to save it--twice". I simply forgot to add it back when I redrew the strip the third time. Fixed now.

    How could Redcloak heal himself if he was unconscious? How can he heal himself with with his own magic if, as an evil cleric, he can't cast cure spells?

    Meh! If rule violation is good enough for Thor, then it's good enough for Redcloak.

    Well yep, I admit my knowledge of D&D-related material is practically nil, but Miko The Blackguard (or whatever the class is called) is looking more and more likely. Are Blackguards more powerful than Paladins?

    I can't decide who rocks the most, Xykon or Redcloak.

    And I like where this is going...
