    The title of the new comic appears, but it's listed as #897 and links to that one, too.

    Nooo don't tease me like this. I can't see 898. Link on the left side takes us to 897. Tried putting 898 directly into the address bar and no go. Went to the comic archive and the latest one is 897.

    Does the rumbling involve the Gate breaking/pyramid collapsing? Are Xykon and Tarquin about to fight?! Nale and Malack?!? Will Nale finally find something rumbleworthy other than himself??

    And this...oh man, why did this comic have to be so short! I'm on the edge of my seat here!

    Though right here at the end...What's Belkar's plan? Though it definitely says something that Roy, in that one moment, chooses to follow him.

    Wait, did Haley run in a different direction than what Belkar is suggesting? Does she know?

    EDIT: saw her in the last panel, OK whew!

    Yep, fixed now. Thanks!

    Also, . What's Belkar's plan? Isn't Xykon presumably within 1,000 feet by now? What about the LG? What on earth is going to happen now? I can't even.

    Very interested to see what Belkar's plan is. Perhaps something involving that flying carpet?

    I guess that answers the "does a normal-sized Gate explode if destroyed" question.

    They look like they're in the room right below the Draketooths' former cafeteria and current morgue. What passages do we know about that lead from there?

    Ok i admit i've no idea what Belkar is planning either. But this is going to be interesting. Also have to wonder what tarquin, the LG and Xykon are all doing right now. Something big is about to happen but i have no idea what. The suspense is a killer.

    Damm it.

    Assuming he wants to enter Girard's gate with full spell slots, no. The oracle said he would be within 1000 feet, but he never said the gate had to be in one piece!

    Gah! Every comic makes me crave the next one to soothe the suspense I feel, but every new one only makes it more suspenseful! Curse your masterful writing, Giant! Curse it!

    Oh my gosh. The group splitting being threatened is freaking me out. I was worried about Mr. Scruffy and then everyone getting separated!

    Bit of a theory:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Think Belkar would risk his own life (and lose it) for Mr. Scruffy? I'm not totally sure how familiars work so I don't know if Scruffy would be in enough permanent danger to warrant such an act. But it would be awfully heart wrenching to watch the rest of the party realize he died caring for another being.

    Thank you for a good action packed comic. I thought we would see Xykon / Redcloak appear before the gate got destroyed. Is it really destroyed though? Seems like, but can't say 100%

    The rift and the gate aren't the same thing, though. Once the gate explodes, the rift will still be there, but the gate will be gone. I'm pretty sure this means Xykon has to be within 1,000 feet before the gate explodes.
