    Standing builds character... and strong leg muscles. No wonder she could kick the head clear off a cleric.

    Giant tweeted the comic announcement as 1025 (oops).

    Also, bets that the knowledge that he can come home motivates Durkon to fight Durkula?

    Returning to his homeland posthumously, indeed. I love that it's the priestess of Thor that's helping Roy.

    This is the first strip in over a year to make me laugh out loud.

    Oh ****, Miko cameo.

    Also, that pun at the end was spot-on. Heh... I don't think "friggin" actually has any connection to Frigg, does it?

    Oh, and Durkula's definitely getting Roy to open the door for him.

    Ha ha, "friggin rules"

    (I get that Roy was in a hurry but he had no need to be so salty.)

    New-art Miko looks awesome too.

    I wonder if this might be of help against the vampire?

    So if Durkula is a never-changing representation of Durkon's worst moment, I wonder if this might affect him as well.

    I wonder what the physical incarnation of everyone else's worst moment would be? Mine would be extremely...bitter. And self-loathing.

    Yay, a helpful highpriest. That particular bit of information can only be helpful.
    The last panel... wordchoice is very important.
    Huh, Miko can be funny...
    And I liked Roy’s quip about the Order’s usual modus operandi.

    Oh hey, first page.

    That thing has to have plot significant purpose. I wonder... Hmm. I'll mull it over.

    I'm expecting Belkar to make a witty comment about being given the MacGuffin by the sacred quest giver now, by the way. That'll be humorous (as was this ending), even if it didn't have quite the punch as some other comics. Not every comic can leave you rolling on the floor laughing hysterically, though. Only some.

    Incidentally, you, mr.Giant, has ensured that I, for ever and ever and ever, will think of you and OOtS when I use or hear the word "frigg..."...

    Now, talk about leaving a lasting legacy, here! It is on par with the Simpsons and "D'oh!"

    Somehow I don't think that runestone is going to be enough to free Durkon. Should be interesting to see where this goes next.

    Personally I'd head for the final dungeon, just to get to the gate before X does. If Roy can secure that gate first, it'd show the deities "oh hey, the mortals are actually useful" for once and they might change sides or something?

    Oh well, if all else fails, the world is destroyed, remade, and in the next, populated by Sandwater Aracanum (only a very select few will get that reference) as sentient life forms...

    Didn't they have that discussion in the comic? A long time ago, when Miko „travelled” with them?
    In the case you aren't joking:
    Warrior is used as a title, a honorific there ( and because „brave fighter” sounds frigging stupid) not as a class-name. Just as Miko was a paladin with the title of samurai without having a class of that name.

    Well played.

    Durkon has what could be construed as a standing invitation to enter.

    Very nice long-term planning. Kudos to the Giant.

    Why and how would the runestone free Durkon?

    Oh, this is going to be good. Interesting that the Council of Clans isn't the active parliament - possibly a slightly archaic body that still gets consulted now and again over an old oath? It'd explain any comparative lack of protection regarding domination and the like.

    Also, the last panel made me laugh, like, a lot.
