    Interesting thing is you have Loki's proxy talking to Loki's high priest in the trance mode.

    edit: I have just realised the high Priest of mani was seen in 985, 997 (when i thought it was a female) and 998 and 999 (when i thought it was a male).

    I can't help but think that we might have seen some of those Southern high priests before, in the strip where Hinjo and his refugees are seeking help from other nations... except that now I can't find that strip for the life of me.

    A round of applause to Martianmaster for her commitment to the cause of enumeration. I have some coments/questions:


    1.) There is a small chance we have seen the god Fenrir before in 946. I understand this will be ignored unless evidence comes forward.

    2.) Where does High Priest of Freyr get his blue +1?

    3.) Odin got an appearance in the last panel of 998 (using the rules applied in 999).

    4.) I hope the High Priest of Tyr will not declare war on us for not giving him so much as a headline entry. I suspect he is chaotic so saying "rules are rules" may not help that much. On the other hand hitting out first is usually tactically bad, so if we sit very still we might be okay.

    The dog in #946 lacks a divine aura, so it's not Fenrir. We have it listed as Garmr.

    You know I only just figured out in the last few strips that not only do the gods have this aura but they are color coded by pantheon. You can see it in 453.

    Why/Where?

    It's a mistake. I'll change it.

    3.) Odin got an appearance in the last panel of 998 (using the rules applied in 999).
    It's already counted as such.

    @martianmaster,

    Thanks. I have been proven fairly conclusively wrong on Fenrir. I had no way of knowing whether Odin's extra appearance had been counted, except that it clearly wasn't when 998 first came out. So only one mistake ot of that lot is pretty impressive.

    Found a minor error while checking the list during a reread of BRitF: the "EoB Soldiers in the Inn" are currently listed as having two appearances. However, while the human soldier only appears in Comics 728 and 730, the lizardfolk soldier also appears in Comic 731, presenting his papers to the police. They should probably be split instead of being tracked as a single entity.

    If so, they could be updated to three appearances as a unit. On the other hand, that could just be the lizard soldier again.

    1000

    Bodygard Dwarf (7th panel, 5th from left in gallery)
    Bodyguard with Kilt (+2)
    Bodyguard with Side Shave (+2)
    Durkon (as Vampire) (+2)
    Heimdall (as proxy) (+2) (tricky one: 1st strip, 3rd panel, left; 2nd strip; 1st panel, right; 4th strip, left),
    Hel (as proxy) (+3)
    High Priestess of Freya (+1)
    High Priestess of Frigg (+1)
    High Priestess of Hoder (+2)
    High Priestess of Odin (+1),
    High Priestess of Sif (+1) (2nd strip, 1st panel; 4th strip, through Heimdall's proxy),
    High Priestess of Skadi (+1) (1st strip, 7th panel; 4th strip)
    High Priestess of Thor (+1)
    High Priest of Balder (+1)
    High Priest of Fenrir (+1)
    High Priest of Freyr (+2)
    High Priest of Heimdall (+1)
    High Priest of Hel (as Durkon) (Possessed) (+2)
    High Priest of Loki (very last panel only)
    High Priest of Mani (+1) (3rd strip, 4th panel; 4th strip)
    High Priest of Sunna (+1)
    High Priest of Tyr (+1) (first seen in 999)
    High Priest of Vafthrudnir (+1) (1st strip, 7th panel; 4th strip, seen through Loki's proxy)
    Loki (as proxy) (+2)
    Representative of Southern Pantheon
    Roy (+3)
    Veldrina (+1)
    Wrecan (+3)

    I think the bodygards 4th, 6th appeared in 998, 3rd strip, 3rd panel. The 4th is only visible in the lower half there.

    I don't think the 7th and 8th from left in the gallery have been seen before.

    No half-orc bodyguard this time, so that's obviously Trigak.

    But the vampire is right there, and that is the most commonly accepted form for Trigak.
    Maybe you meant that the half-orc bodyguard is Spiky? Although I doubt Laurin would be all the way on the Northern continent.

    Is this the first four page strip?

    I'm not sure, but if you count the splash page as the two pages it'll form in the book, then I'm pretty sure it's the first five page strip.

    Not sure why you're replying to a post from two years ago, but Nale had that second mark right up until he died.

    So, back when strip 800 came out, Wrecan expanded the number of characters who got smilies in the OP from 30 to 40. He said that when we reach strip 1000, he would consider changing it so that the first 50 characters have smilies in the OP.

    Now that we have reached strip 1000, what do y'all think of that idea?

    If I remember my thinking from back when--even if it's not a wound, it's an after-effect of Malack's attack. Therefore, it's not necessarily a piece of Malack (or an appearance for him), any more than a burn from a Vaarsuvius fireball would be.
