    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!


    Edit to add: And O-Chul is a tough ol' paladin, that's for sure. Of course, having to clean the Imperial Litterbox means that he can probably handle being Mrs. Nesbitt for MitD's Tea party.

    Normally, I'm against this sort of thing, but....

    OMG!!!

    Well, I guess we (hopefully) can stop with the Miko threads.... considering we specifically see O'Chul survive and not Miko.

    Not necessarily; O-Chul still has Divine Grace, adding his Cha to his saving throws. He may have made a save that Miko missed. We won't know until we see Miko's body (alive or dead)

    Plus, he looks like the type to have put his best stat in Constitution.
    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.

    Well, we know O-Chul is a crispy critter. Remains to be seen if Miko got blown away with the castle as well (I have my fingers crossed)

    I honestly didn't expect the explosion. Poor O-Chul. I wonder if Xykon will think to give the order to have the Hobbos withdraw?

    Whoh. That was a pretty big explosion. I like how you can see Xykon and Redcloak making a fly for it just at the edge of the blast. I wonder if there was any way for Miko to survive that? She is level 16-ish, with pretty high hit points and she seemed to be at full when she broke the jewel.


    And as a final thing, poor O'chul! I can't tell if he's dead though... stupid paralisis. I hope he survived, somehow. But I doubt it. So sad.

    What???!!! Are all the Snarl gates set up to explode upon destruction? Nobody will ever know what Miko did, then. Funny that O-Chul got the credit for the deed, and a seat at a tea party as his reward.

    I'm wondering if, in the 7th panel, that should read "Assuming any" instead of "many"

    Yep, O-Chul's still alive, because from the metagaming position of comic readers, he doesn't have Xs.

    I'm guessing it's too much to hope for Azure City that the explosion would have killed all the Hobgoblins surrounding the castle.

    Miko could be dead or alive. Miko has evasion, which would allow her to take no damage from reflex save inducing blasts like that if she makes the save. If not... ding-dong the witch is dead

    Well I guess that settles that...
    Miko probably found a way to survive, she is after all very much like a cockroach.

    Very cool panel though, almost as cool as the Roy leaping at Xykon panel.

    I liked how the explosion panel's sound effect was at the bottom. I imagined it first just to be a silent flash of light, followed by a rolling, enormous BANG!!!

    Now, what of our beloved Miko? Hmm...

    EDIT:


    Oh my lord... There's a cockroach... at a TEA PARTY!!! AH HAHAHAHA!! MY TIME HAS COME! BLORG!!!
