    Only Miko could look at that room and think it all makes sense.

    Well, looks like Redcloak is doing a good job taking out the ghosts, and Xykon is getting his butt kicked again. Charming! Still kind of curious as to what will happen to old man Soon, though.

    Interesting, is that a Paladin Ninja ghost I see there? I wonder if that's some kind of obscure Prestige Class or the like.

    She's sneaking into the throne room! Mypredictionwasrightmypredictionwasrightmypredicti onwasright! Well, so far, anyway. We have yet to see if she'll beat up Redcloak and prevent him from turning the remaining ghost martyrs.

    Awww ****. Am I the only one who thinks she will see the one paladin about to destroy the gate and get the wrong idea? If you look at that picture out of context, it almost looks like Redcloak and Xykon are DEFENDING the gate (which they sort of are) from the paladins. Throw in that she already has a negative impression towards the Saphire Guard and... Well things could be very very bad.


    NOO the hobgoblin commander! He was one of my favorite characters (alot more than the OOTS, they are still funny, but I much prefer the other characters to them)

    Wow hold on, this is going too fast, we didn't have time to speculate on the other strip!

    I have no idea on what goes inside Miko's head, but I fear for the worst.

    (Wait, that sounded too happy.)

    Hmmm...late comic. 'Bout time

    Hmm, the "ghost paladin in the hooded cloak" seems to be absent (though you can see his/her body amongst the fallen).

    I still think he/she is gonna figure in this somehow, possibly as... well, I've already made my guess.

    Oh, and I noticed that Bandana Paladin and Blue-Highlight Girl Paladin are still alive. Which cheers me up, because those two are my favorites. Also, I'm happy to see further proof that Belkar has a high Intelligence score. "Seriously, do I have to think of everything around here?"

    Woo! Extra comic.

    And yes, Elan; you're not the only one to get that sense of foreboding.

    Now: will she destroy the gate, or join Soon and the Deathless ones in fighting Team Evil, or will she demonstrate that she really is gone off the deep end and conclude that the Sapphire Guard are the bad guys because of O'Chul about to chop the sapphire and Soon being a spook? Who can tell what's going through her head at this stage?

    1. As an online discussion on the Order of the Stick forum grows longer, the probability of Miko Myazaki being mentioned approaches unity.
    2. He who mentions her in a disparaging way when irrelevant to the thread topic loses the argument.
    Fanclubbery list:

    Miko fanclub.

    Roy fanclub.

    Hinjo fanclub.

    The Chief fanclub.

    The Xykon fanclub. Because Evil is just that cool.

    after the soldiers die, belkar will fly through and accidently hit the sapphire gem, and knock it out of the way, reopening the gate to the scribble, an arm will come out and hit red cloak, he will look dead but not truley be, and the monster in the shadows will finally come out and save red cloak, and everyone on team good will be like "oh sh**"

    I've got to agree with elan, this does not bode well. The fight seems as good as over and sure is'nt there to help out. I'm looking forward to the new story ark. This battle was awsome but seems to be pretty much over.

    Well Miko is going to smash the Gate, two npcs are going to go splat, and I'm guessing that after gate goes bye bye Xykon and Redcloak run like hell. Buy a bunch of shares in HNJO and OOTS and dump your DOOM.
