    Awesome comic. But what becomes of the citizens that fled now? The nobles? Hinjo?

    Hmm... things seem to have slowed down quite a bit since Miko's death. But it's nice to see Xykon being Xykon.

    So, I wonder how difficult it's going to be for the rest of the Order to get to Roy, what with all the hobgoblins about and the city's defenses pretty much done for.

    Is the Mystic Theurge going to blame that on Xykon or Redcloak?

    wow. i don't think the city stands a chance with the bad guys in charge, especially being out numbered and out gunned. the last panel gave me a chuckle, i'm kind of wondering what happned to the order.
    did their tower blow up? i'm really starting to miss the good guys.
    team evil had their share of the spot light.
    can we focus on the good guyss>

    It seems to me that Redcloak is probably wrong on three counts

    a) The "no spying on each other" rule that the order of the scribble established means that nowhere in the city is there information on the other gates.

    b) There are still a lot of warriors etc. belonging to the other Azure City nobility who can come back and contest ownership of the city. Assuming they've been scrying on the goings on I suspect they'll be coming back soon to protect their interests.

    c) The current leader of the paladins is still alive and I'd assume they still have a number of the still out in the field. I doubt their order is finished.

    The poor hobgoblin general died an offscreen death. Ouch :( The other nameless enemy commanders (mainly, Xykon's three brothers) got better than that. Well, at least Tsukiko lived. ...so far.

    Heh, took me a while to figure out the receipt line (knew it had to do with someone screwing something up), but that's really an awesome joke. Hopefully for the badguys' sake anything that Shojo had on the other gates was kept in a place that WASN'T set on fire yet somehow.

    Yeah, Xykon needs the boats to get to Girard's Gate.

    Shojo knows what the other gates' defenses are (sorta). He mentioned it to the OOTS during the flashback. Girard's is illusions and Kraagar's is monsters.

    Whether or not he wrote it down anywhere, however, is unknown.

    As for the nobles.... I'd be surprised if they were strong enough to take back the city.

    It would be the best, when Xykon is watching TV for a while and let Redcloak do the work.

    Looks like there is probably going to be serious conflict between and at some future point.

    And no, this isn't a spoiler, it's just plainly self-evident ever since started caring about the hoboblins.

    Talk about stealing Redcloak's thunder.

    Are they going to have to dress him up in MitD's clothes to get it back?
