    Hey, this one is early!

    And.. Redcloak hasn't been hurt before this, has he?

    Hopefully Soon can prevail! I'm surprised that Xykon has lasted this long though..

    Quite the battle - can't wait to see where this leads . . .
    I gave up fighting, and stabbing and bludgeoning and stealing and bar-brawls and wenches . . . and it was the worst 10 rounds of my life - Jerry the Country & Western Bard.

    Wow, this is the first thing I've ever seen that really looks like it's giving Xykon a run for his money....except for that time when he was utterly destroyed...

    he faired much better than i suspected. But Xykon and redcloak's spells are running dry. It seems it's up to Soon, and the OOTS will be there soon to back him up.

    Xykon's last quote is priceless.

    How bad is it that I was rooting for Redcloak and Xykon while reading this?

    Redcloak was hurt in the battle against Miko, when Xykon was sitting, betting.

    And the earliness is awesome. Truly wonderful.

    Man do they ever run out of spells???? Anyway, it look like Soon is kicking their ass, he doesnt even look wounded at all. But, since he was weakened after he loss some paladins, I wonder if he can stay on the mortal plane after all the other paladins are gone?

    Oh, mighty Giant, we thank you for your great gift of Awsome.

    Soon made Xykon scream in pain. He is the official Goodass.

    In other news, the Ghost-martyrs are confirmed as Deathless. And Redcloak clearly didn't take into account the possibility of something being tough enough to smack Xykon enough that he'd need more Harms. He has to prepare those, after all, unlike Inflicts.

    This'll be close, but I don't see Soon having the capacity to take on Redcloak after the damage he's (probably) taken from Xykon already. If he's got a lot of lay on hands left, though, he might be able to force a retreat, or even defeat Xykon and/or Redcloak. Hopefully the OOTS will get there soon. (yay puns)

    I think you failed your Reading check: Both Redcloak and Xykon indicate they are out of or running out of certain spells.

    So to answer your question: Yes.
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    Oh.. Duh. I feel stupid now.

    And yeah.. The word-game with Soon's name is awesome. Hopefully the OotS shows up soon, ready to kick ass.

    Hey awesome. Go Soon and the Sapphire Guards!

    Xykon is continually hilarious. Can't wait to see how this all ends up. I'm betting the OotS and Hinjo will show up pretty soon.
