    I think I'd count that, yeah. Not sure I want to bother putting that in the "rulings" section in the first post because this is entirely hypothetical so far. Also, hopefully if this were to occur the comic might clarify... although it likely wouldn't do so within the same strip. So, uh, I'd count it but might have to be prepared to revert if the comic made it clear that this is not "dead"? I think that's the best answer I can give.

    Wow, a second point! Wa hey!

    OK, now I'm really sure there won't be any more deaths before the end of the book (which will end with Team Evil finding the Gate, of course...) So I could just leave it, but then I'll have no bets running at all, and if a random unexpected thing happens, I could lose out!

    So, take a wild shot in the dark - just in case the book ends with them all on the Mechane heading further north, and the cliffhanger is not the Gate, but the Mechane getting attacked by, I dunno, a surprise entry by a new faction of chaotic space monkeys led by Recloak's niece, I'm going to bet upon a known member of the Mechane's crew dieing in the sudden attack. Not Andi or Bandana.... so another visually well known crew member to be killed to provide shock value?

    My new bet is on Felix!
    Geez, what is it with that guy and needing to figure out all the fiddly little details?

    I know, right? It's called "Suspension of Disbelief"...

    Re #1180. I think Curly got away. But an adventuring people should have no more than 6 adventurers, so
    I'm changing my bet back to Belkar.
    I can change because I bet on Curly before #1175.

    I bet on the world-weary, risk-taking Green Voice from #1189.

    About time I joined in... I'm going to guess that Minrah will die again.
    Werewolf games won: 7 (as town three times, wolf, evil mutant, town a fourth time and Russian spy. Don't ask.)

    Werewolf games lost: 1 (as survivor)

    Number of deaths: 4 (killed night one for trying (and mostly failing) to do crazy stuff; killed night zero for being crazy enough to narrate a game; horribly murdered by Valmark, Xihirli and Lord Athos for no particular reason night one; killed night two for being the Seer)

    You're right, of course. I'm especially embarrassed because I had just read the rules.

    How about Pompey, then?

    My vote is Lien.

    If Lien is off the table at the moment (considering last time we saw her she was poisoned) then my vote is Minrah.

    No reason you can't bet on Lien!

    Quickly and quietly changing my vote to Durkon even though he's 90% likely to survive somehow. Yeah, that locks me in for what, another ten strips? I don't expect any other fatalities any time soon.

    (Actually I apparently haven't changed it since, uh, before it became pretty likely we'll never see Curly again. Figures I bet on the one vampire that didn't dust. So I can't legally change until there's another death. Elan is still due a happy ending, and I see no way that can happen while Xykon is still around, nor do I see him settling peacefully. So let's change to that after the next death.)

    That's right - George R. R. Martin; a writer so ruthless, his name is a verb akin to Samuel L. Jackson. Valar morghulis.

    Just coming in to say that I can hear you even if you're quiet. I thought of the Death Pool right after the end of the strip, though I can't change my vote.
