    So Durkon is indeed low on spells.

    Ok, I am now finally 100% convinced, Malack is evil. So much for me being an optimist.

    This battle is pretty great with swinging back and forth in who has the edge.

    Though this does indicate that if Malack got any more Lawful, he'd cease to be anything but an Outsider.

    Now, to see if Durkon has started a fight he can win or not.

    Welp, I think that definitively answers the, "Is Malack Evil?" question.

    Well, that's some nice on-the-fly strategizing from Durkon. Hopefully he can do more with the advantage than whack Malack with a hammer, though.

    And yeah, holy crap, that's freaking Evil.

    Nice charge Durkon! Okay here's my theory: Durkon keeps the battle going, taking a few more hits and dispelling his protection from then sun. Then casts Thor's Might bursting through the ceiling and exposing Malack to some direct sunlight! C'mon Durkon! Make that Str Check!

    Also thanks for the awesome comic Rich!

    Nice long-term plans Malack has there And the fact that Tarquin knows also means that their trust is way better than most parties involved, or so I think.

    I like the bit about Tarquin being perfectly fine with his plans being co-opted by Malack.

    Also, as a few others have said, something's just telling me Malack's evil.

    It's possible that he wants willing participants, not like it makes it better.

    Yes, if there was ANY room for doubt, that panel shut it down completely.

    I find this strip to be a bit of a cool-down from the past couple of strips. It's nice to have a couple of things confirmed (i.e. how many spells Durkon has left) and I like the call-back to how open Malack and Tarquin are to one another, but it kinda lacks the excitement of the previous few.

    Well I think that answers the question of whether Durkon has Protection from Evil prepared.

    Tarquin's also planning for his empire to be overthrown by a group of adventurers in a bid to become the central villain in a heroic legend, though. Malack doesn't seem to be figuring that into his plan.

    It's also good to see the refutation of all the "Durkon was being SOOOO UNREASONABLE GAIZ" posts from a few days ago.

    See, by rebelling against Tarquin, Nale was opposing Malack's plan for a thousand sacrifices each day. He's the real hero! He'd only perform a few sacrifices each day for he and Sabine's sex life.

    Will the three empires put together, be big enough to support a daily death rate of 1000, without eventual population crash?

    Durkon continues to prove to be smarter than I thought he was. It's nice for him to get a moment in the spotlight.

    Another great comic!

    I felt a chill down my spine when I read the line about special chambers for mass killings... That's some serious Evil.

    For the first time, we see that Malack's ambitions are actually larger than Tarquin's.

    Calm, Orderly and Efficient. Kind of reminds me of how Sun Li describes what his rule of the empire will be like in Jade Empire.
