    Okay, that was the funniest fulfilled prophecy I've seen in a while.

    HA! I actually did a spit-take reading that.

    Hope V is okay though, wonder if his body will be moved from all the rubble when s/he's sent back

    That was one hell of an explosion!
    EDIT: This also confirms that Girard, duplicitious though he was, didn't lie to Serini about the coordinates of the Gate.

    Welp.

    There goes that semantics debate.

    I can't stop laughing. Short, sweet and to the point. Prophecy fulfilled, indeed.

    Looking at the size of that explosion, I honestly think that V was probably blown entirely clear of it. There's not really a lot of rubble left to collapse - we're mostly looking at large scattered chunks o' pyramid here, so unless one lands right on V, zie'll probably be fine.

    Nice one.

    After all, he did have to be within 1000 foot of the gate BEFORE it was destroyed for the prophecy to be fulfilled.

    The Oracle would be proud.

    Now, we just have to see about the OotS and especially V.

    Haha, that's a good one.

    Obviously Redcloak and Xykon will survive in a fashion but its interesting how this will affect Team Evil. Xykon will reform in Redcloaks pocket rather than in the Astral Plane, leaving Redcloak with the MitD who has orders to eat him alive at the first hint of treachery.

    Also, anyone else feeling comic 900 for an end of book page?

    Well that answers that.

    This makes me think it's more likely Belkar has actually suggested a safe 'splosion proof place to hit, but I can't explain why.

    The explosion occurred while the main cast is hiding off-panel. Of course they're safe! XD

    The question now is how likely is it that Xykon gets involved with the other two groups in the area? He may decide to go straight to Kraagor's gate instead.

    Also I don't think we have to worry about V being buried alive. Looks like most stuff is being flung clear.

    I wonder what Tarquin's gonna say about this? If it turns out he never really intended to seize the gate at all that's gonna be heartbreaking. All that grief (literally in 877) for nothing.

    There was some debate over whether the Oracle's answer meant that Team Evil would have to arrive at Girard's Gate before the Gate exploded or if they could arrive afterwards because it was still the Gate's location.

    This comic answered it rather, ah, succinctly.

    898 discussion thread. The question was whether Xykon would get to the Gate before it exploded or not, or whether just the location of the gate counted.

    Maybe they have a Giant's refrigerator? (See what I did there?) The Draketooth family is rather large, after all, and food goes bad quickly in their home climate.
