    eek OOTS #879 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is up.

    Also, this is the last of the 9-in-a-row, so there won't be any more until next week while I try to catch up on other work.

    ... Disturbing Durkon. Creepy. Belkar being spared was half expected though.

    @v I suggest reading the Giant's post right here to find out.

    does this count for the 9 days in a row or is the fact it's 12:06 count against it.

    Edit1:Sorry didn't see that in your post. Just wanted to know. Thanks and poor Belkar with his one drop of HP.

    Edit2: Well just wondering i don't want him to decide that the 6 minutes had mattered after he did it all.

    Well, I like Durkula already. And the fact that Belkar was spared.
    EDIT: Wow, in the 10 seconds it took me to type a post, four people posted. Frightening.

    Well, I got the part about drinking from Belkar without killing him and Malack releasing Belkar to rejoin the Order right.

    The First of the nine day comics came out 5 AM on the 25th. Nine days isn't up until 5 AM on the 5th. He is on time.

    See you next week, Giant! And you have most definitely earned it. Wow. Just, wow.

    And yet another surprising thing here: Belkar actually cares.

    Seeing how he is with Durkon, I think I actually like Malack even more now than before this whole vampire business.

    Grr. End of the 9-in-a-row strips and we still don't know if the vampire is really Durkon or not (though I'm leaning towards a "no" based on Malack's comments about "the Durkon that was").

    But at least Belkar - and Mr. Scruffy! - live. The little psycho's never been my favorite member of the Order, but watching him get vampirized too would have just been too much.

    Did anyone else take Belkar's statement concerning his survival as the start of survivor's guilt? More character development for Belkar from a most unexpected source would be excellent indeed.

    It's been an awesome ride these 9 days. Can we kickstart something like this again in the future? Haha =)

    I wonder how the rest of the Order will take this. At least they'll see what bad shape Belkar is in.

    Huh... well... that hardly answers the question about Durkon's Soul... since vampires are dominated by their sire until they are released...

    He may still have his soul... but... urk... now... so spoiled from 9 days of comics... DAMNIT!
