    I'm thinking it's Geoff who is going down next.

    My bet since the Pyramid began has been on Blackwing, who was a unique and safe kill at the time with minimal plot impact. Now I am honestly completely clueless. TE, LG, SG, OotS, and Tarquin's group have all lost one major player in this arc.

    I will change my bet (first post since Z) to Qarr. IFCC is the only named team I can think of with no loss, I don't see Belkar "dying" just yet, and the liberation of EoB will probably just be in side strips a la The Resistance post-Haley.

    I'm thinking Tarquin has to be taken down next. But the mechanism I like is that Nale starts with eliminating those who know Tarquin best (Malack and Kilkil) so that when Sabine replaces Tarquin nobody is suspicious. So maybe my previous prediction of Kilkil has to stand. Aaargh. What's the point of a dilemma when you know both guesses will turn out wrong? Tarquin, then.

    The more Tarquin feels in total control, the more I think he's going down next.

    Just to be clear, I'm assuming that is actually a bet?

    Wow. A third one in quick succession. Lotta people getting points here. I'll update the first post shortly.

    (And it looks like I got lucky in waiting to change my bet...)

    Edit: And, Pory pulls into the lead with 3 points!

    I think that's reasonable to allow. She has few appearances, but she has a name, is significant as one of Tarquin's allies, and has been around for a long time.

    Alright, cool. I'm really torn now. I think it's going to be Sabine, Laurin, or Tarquin next.

    Sabine: I like the idea of Sabine finding out what happened and coming to seek vengence on Tarquin. I don't know how likely that is, though. Since I voted for her last, I'm going to end up defaulting to her if I don't choose.

    Laurin: We don't know much about her yet, but she's Tarquin's pal and...we don't know much about her yet. She hasn't been characterized, which would make her a great redshirt.

    Tarquin: He needs to die, and this is a very dramatic moment. Elan's face makes me think he's in for it. But he is surrounded by an entire army of guards, so I don't think this is going down right now. It's possible, though.

    In the end, I think I'm going to have to go with Laurin. But god am I ever torn.

    Going to take a chance here and bet on Tarquin. I don't think it's that likely, but it's a lot more likely than it was last strip.

    #877 - Malack kills Durkon
    #906 - Nale/Zz'dtri kill Malack
    #908 - Durkula kills Zz'dtri
    #913 - Tarquin kills Nale

    Put me down for... Tarquin. I figure at least one more shoe's going to drop here, and Durkula still has to spread death and destruction in his homeland.

    I want to vote for Laurin, but I think I'll wait. At least Kilkil doesn't seem to be in the canyon anymore, so I can stop voting for him...for now.

    Tarquin will not be happy he dusted Malack. Maybe impressed, but not happy nonetheless. Nale just got lucky. He also won't be happy he completely blew the gate plan, plus didn't even get a hold of the "ritual" from Xykon. Nothing says it better than:

    "You have failed me for the last time!!"

    In fact I'd love it if a dinosaur ate Nale.

    Darn, I thought I had another day to decide between Tarquin and Nale. I'm going to bet in haste now on Tarquin and repent at leisure if Sabine or Thog shows up and gets killed.

    I can't believe Tarquin was stupid enough not to have figured out that Nale killed Malack already - or at least to have asked after Malack while talking to Nale. I suppose it can be rationalized as his being clueless about his sons.

    Maybe he just assumed the OOTS steamrolled the Linear Guild.

    Damn it. I lose. I really thought Nale would live.

    Tarquin will die. I think Geoff and Ian won't show up for a bit.

    I am going by intuition here, operating from the fact that he's going to die and Tarquin and Laurin would continue a particular killing round that has been going on for a bit now. Sooooo....

    50 qvumsels on Belkar's death!

    You know, my next bet is O'Chul.

    To Carify:

    Since I took my last bet of Belkar, we have had three other die, and Belkar has been in a state of almost dead the whole time...

    I'm Moving my bet because, if I'm going to be wrong, I'm going to be wrong because O'chul will never die
    Now, Back to Lurking!

    I'll bet on Tarquin, like many others before me.

    Either Elan will put his secret plan into action now, or at the end of the whole story. I bet now.
