    Belkar's time is almost up, but I think he'll outlive Malak
    The prison was full of British officers who had sworn to die, rather than be captured.

    Belkar is going to survive this. Durkon goes out next.

    I don't understand the concept of betting when there's nothing to wager and nothing to gain.

    Are we actually allowed to change votes right now? No one has died since the last incarnation of this thread, unless one counts the mummies Roy destroyed.

    Why did you post a whole new thread, instead of just bumping the old one? Now everything's in two places...

    The old thread was last posted to in August of last year. While I didn't just look up the exact dates in the rules, I think that means it's against them to post to it now.

    Actually, I believe the rules specify that if your bet was stated before Yukyuk died, ancient history I know, then you are free to change your vote. But if you have changed your vote since then it is locked in until someone else important dies (although checking the dates would be a pain).

    Possible rule; everyone has to resubmit their vote once a character dies. It would help you clean up the large backlog of votes from people who probably aren't returning to the thread to celebrate their victory, and maintains the competitive integrity that a pointless just-for-fun forum thread deserves. Plus forcing people to return to the thread every time there's a death instead of every time there's a death and they want to change their vote could help keep the thread alive, unlike the last two incarnations.

    I agree with oppyu. It would make it a lot easier to maintain the thread and keep people coming back, if everyone had to redo their votes after a character death. What good is someone winning on a 2 year old vote anyway, when they wont be there to gloat :P

    Interesting. I guess I won't be original, Belkar seems to be going down.

    I'm glad to see this thread again!

    And I definitely agree with the above posters; having to re-up one's votes seems like a good way to keep this game robust.

    Oh, look, a bandwagon.

    Put me down for Belkar. I'm not convinced he'll die here and now, but he's certainly got better odds than my former choice of Zz'dtri.

    See, if the votes had to be re-upped every time there was a new strip, martianmister wouldn't have to go back and check whether or not tl'esar's vote was before Yukyuk's death.

    I'm pretty sure that was already a rule from the first thread.

    The rule was that you can change your vote if you want to after a death, not that you have to restate your vote after a death.

    I'd like to vote Belkar. Mostly wishful thinking - or it was, until the most recent comic.

    I'm tempted to vote for demon roaches again and wait till another one of them dies.

    Belkar's the obvious choice at the moment and I'm thinking there's a good chance that his encounter with Malack might be his last, but I want to be contrary. I'm voting Kilkil because I think his time is likely up soon enough anyway. Also considered Mr. Scruffy (not sure whether it would be better for him or Belkar to die first) and Zz'dtri, and maybe even Blackwing.

    ...I think at this point I would like to invoke Rule 6a, please!!!

    Though we might have to wait until the next strip to see if it's for real, yes no maybe?
