    Interesting, I like the two page layout although it is a bit hard to read.

    Minor nitpick: "regenerate" is missing an "r" in the bottom left panel of the left page.

    Holy Crap! I feel like this is The Lord Of The Rings all over again, except cooler. Damn.

    P.S. What about the undead dragon? I didn't see it in the big picture, but I know its going to play somekind of a part in the battle. And another thing, what the hell is Redcloak up to? I think that Xykon's going to sacrifice himself to take down the wall, or maybe Redcloaks got Xykon in a catapult or something. IDK, I can't wait to find out though.

    When the heck did A) Redcloak grow a pair and B) Xykon become so dismissive?

    That last panel is the single most sympathetic thing Redcloak's ever said, that whispered phrase...

    I'm so confused!

    I really wasn't expecting quite that big a turnaround in the relationship. Wow. And how about that last panel?

    The Redcloak speculators are going to go nuts.

    Looks like the Order has a more high-risk mission on their hands than I thought too...

    Oh my god. I hope your all being sarcastic. That ain't Xycon folks. he's a duplicate being used as a bullseye drawing the high level order away from main combat.

    Okay there's no way that's Xykon.

    No, I think we've all been led on - 's been the real mastermind the whole time, with as a decoy/pawn - whether willingly or unwillingly, I don't Know.

    I HIGHLY doubt that was really Xykon, but either way it was hilarious! Go Redcloak!

    If you are looking for moment-to-moment rules accuracy from this comic, you probably should stop reading. You are guaranteed to be continually frustrated and disappointed, because I don't care about that at all.

    So Redcloak would be aiming for the throne room, then. No idea why I didn't expect that, but anyway, holy crap.

    Redcloak has a history with the high and mighty, stick-in-arses Sapphire paladins. Though you could guess from his indignant speech to Miko.

    The "widescreen" format for the approach is fantastic. A little odd about and , it's almost as if they had switched bodies.
