    So our good Hel is actually trying to save the world. You can't turn said world into a miserable sinkhole if it doesn't exist in the first place.

    Oh.

    Oh, that's bad.

    ... I'm kind of surprised to see this as mostly the Northern Pantheon, though, with only Veldrina as the dedicated Western + Elven Pantheon representative and no indication of any Southern one.

    Oooooooh boy. And after all of Wrecan's downplaying of the bureaucracy, I began downplaying the importance of the Godsmoot itself.

    I feel foolish for trying to guess HPoH's game in the first place.

    Well... that certainly would be one way to stop the snarl. A bit extreme, but if they've realized the gates are being destroyed, they might think this is their last option.

    No pressure on that vote, right?

    I vote Yay. It's more dramatic that way (and why should Xykon have all the fun?)

    Oh holy ****. I wasn't expecting that. I mean, I get their thinking--the gods know that the Snarl can Unmake creation and actually destroy all the souls of everyone on the planet, AND it can kill the gods. So in their mind, better to distort the world, send everyone to their destined afterlives where they still exist or some other pocket dimension or something and protect themselves ( and I bet the gods are concerned about the latter over the former but told their priests more about the former than the latter) than to have everyone unmade.

    We're definitely going to have V or Roy speak and talk about the world in the rift. And oh man, Redcloak is going to be so pissed when he learns about the Godsmoot, if he wasn't invited.

    Sorry if I'm a bit incoherent, I literally just got up.

    How do we know she wants to vote for saving the world? And with all the talk of driving Thor to his knees and the killing of all the Brothers and Sisters of the Creed, I bet there's more to it than as such. If the world gets destroyed, wouldn't people go to Hel instead of Asgard?

    Is there a typo on panel 9? "panthrons" should be "pantheons", right?

    If the world were destroyed, wouldn't that potentially RELEASE the snarl?

    Why yes, Roy, you do have bigger problems than Belkar.

    HPoH left his two new friends outside and has his staff, so that line of speculation seems to have been nipped. I wonder what the two new friends are up to? Nothing good.

    Not necessarily. It could mean some sort of feline-themed Transformers or something.
    ...But yeah, probably a typo.

    Well, at least the gods didn't just debate it among themselves but seem to want the input of their high priests. It's something!

    I think it's a reference to what Shojo and V said here:

    http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0276.html

    about how the prison can be remade with no rifts - but the world has to be destroyed in order to remake the prison.

    So...
    comic 998 will present the arguments...
    comic 999 will be the vote...
    and comic 1000 can bring the story to an unexpected end.

    I don't see the Giant being this cruel, but it would certainly be an interesting outcome.

    Huh. Must be nice to have a way to escape the burning building. But I guess it kinda makes sense. By the time the last gate falls it'll be a bit late to do anything.

    If the Gods do destroy the world, Xykon will be destroyed and Roy's father can go to his lawful-selfish reward. That's got to count for something, right?[/sarcasm]

    Yeah, rocks falls, everyone dies.
