    Belkar Bitterleaf. Even if it's not soon, it's guaranteed. I'm getting at least one more point in this thread. :p

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

    I thought about that. But personally, I think it would be a great tribute to have a character named after me die nobly, better than getting some snarky lines in and then departing to an unknown fate.

    Long time since the last time I voted. I don't think it's his time yet but I'm going to bet on Belkar, just in case.

    I don't currently have you as having any points. Is that in error?

    Uh, yeah... kind of an unprecedented situation, that... I'm going to say yes, everyone who bet scores a point in that case. (I mean, unless they bet on a god or something.) And you can't bet on "The World" as per rule 11. :P

    A shame this thread got pushed over here. Only the thread curator got a point during the Crystal Golem scene...I would've gotten a point for Crystal if I remembered this existed back then.

    Have you talked to a mod about allowing it back in the OOTS forum? I don't see how it's much more structured than the Trivia threads or the Stick Awards.

    I hadn't asked, honestly! It would certainly be nice to be moved back.

    Edit: OK, I've asked about it now, we'll see what they say.

    I'm going to be wildly optimistic, and change my bet to "High Priest of Hel"

    I know the whole "death and destruction" prophecy is currently in HPoH's favour that he'll escape (while Hel not managing to win the vote, of course), but I still reckon it's more likely than my previous bet coming in!

    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"...

    I don't know. Mark Hall said he would ask the other mods about it some time ago. Never seems to have happened; I bugged him about it once more after that, I could do so again.

    Edit: Sorry, the answer seems to be no. Oh well.

    Bumping the thread since it had fallen off. Unfortunately the thread is apparently stuck here in structured games. But this seems like a pretty good time to place a bet...

    I'm not sure whether Little Whiskers is dead, but regardless he doesn't count because he only has 5 appearances and nobody bet on him.

    I doubt he is. He's connected to a donor character (presumably part of her description), and it'd be a bit harsh to kill off her tiger like that.

    I feel like they sort of confirmed in the comic that the vampire didn't suck enough of his blood for him to die.

    Can we bet on the tiger? Little Whiskers, I think his name is?

    Sure, I don't see why not. He's got 7 appearances, a name, and seems generally significant enough. RSLee, who originally wrote the rules, may have intended to be more restrictive about them, but I've generally been pretty permissive; I'll allow it. Should I assume you are indeed placing such a bet?

    I was thinking about it, but with that post I was just asking if we could. After some more thinking, put me down for Durkon/Durkula.

    Hm. Dunno why I haven't seen this before...
    I bet O-chul, the MITD needs motivation to turn against Team Evil.

    I bet on O-Chul. I have a hunch that either he or Lien will die, and it would be more dramatic if Mr. Stiffly got killed....

    Edit: by which I mean that O-Chul is a symbol of strength and resistance. He's the guy who survived Redcloak's torture, fought through Xykon's gladiatorial matches, busted out of prison, and took out Redcloak's eye with a metal pole! If he got killed it would be tragic, but also give the characters a new reason to fight.
    Plus, he's the MitD's best friend. If he got killed, it would give the MitD a reason to turn against Team Evil. I can see it now...
    O-Chul falling to the floor
    MitD yelling "MR. STIFFLY!!!"
    A flashback to them playing Go together
    The MitD roars and throws off his umbrella
    And attacks!

    But just as he throws it off, one of two things happen:
    1. He yells "*Insert whoever killed O-Chul here*! I will eat your broken corpse lightly seasoned with nutmeg!
    or 2. Elan remins him to do something like that just before.

    Then after, Elan cries at the amazing reveal.

    Lame. It's not like the OOTS section is too fast/crowded to handle another recurring thread.

    Yeah, I tried also suggesting that other similar game-like recurring threads (awards, trivia, etc) should be moved down here with us, but that seems to have gone nowhere...
