    Best thing for me, is that "Paladin-Off" is absolutely something that keeps happening in my games, too

    Also, excited about the start of a new story arc!

    There was no way O-Chul was going to catch a chill.

    Well, when you're in that type of environment, I guess there's not a whole lot for entertainment. I think they could also get away with calling it a "Holier Than Thou Competition."

    See now, this is what I like to think of when I think of paladins. Good guys who can have fun and not be total sticks in the mud about life in their quest to always be lawful good or whatever. We of course got to see the quintessential badly played paladin with whats her face, miko? The now dead and torn in half fallen paladin who died still flat out not getting it. Its good to see the class done properly.

    O-Chul in a Paladin-Off? Too OP, please nerf.

    Hey! Good to see Lien and O-Chul, haven't seen them in-comic in a while.

    'Paladin-off', great stuff.

    Wow, my timing today is good--no comic when I came on the site, so I read the forums; and while reading the OotS subforum noticed a discussion thread for the new comic had appeared!

    I expect our intrepid duo are shortly going to bump into a whole lot more evil than they expected to, though, considering Xykon, Redcloak *and* the Durkula vampires should all be around here somewhere...

    O-Chul is back! Whoo! When you have a paladin who is willing to take on a high level cleric and an epic level lich with his bear hands and an improvised quarterstaff (and who beats the cleric), you've got a pretty epic hero. It's good to see him again.

    They have it. But being a paladin wouldn't be the same without constantly making it hard on yourself.

    NO ONE BEATS O CHUL IN A PALADIN-OFF.

    It's like trying to beat the Tarrasque in a devouring contest. I mean, seriously, don't even go there.

    And almost to the pole? Does that mean the final gate is literally at the north pole? That makes finding it easy.

    "My ring of water breathing protects against the cold as well."

    Can we take a moment to appreciate how well done Rich did with this piece of exposition?

    We now know how Lien gets to those cold depths without drowning, that she is protected from cold damage and can still breathe underwater, should either come up. All from part of the punchline to the gag in a hillarious transition comic.

    Bravo, Rich, Bravo.
    I consider myself an author first, a GM second and a player third.

    The three skill-sets are only tangentially related.

    YES. Now we can finally see what the heck Xyklon and Redcloak are up to.

    Be honest, O-chul doesn't need a magic cloak to stay warm. He has constitution, the warmth of his paladiny goodness, and sheer memetic badassery.

    This is how Paladins should be. Fighting for good (and law I guess), defending Innocents, redeeming evildoers when possible, punishing them if necessary, but most importantly able to be fun about it. O-Chul and Lien are great. Nice to see them again.

    Hilarious!

    Almost Pratchettesk.
    (Of course, Pratchett first implies that it's the superior mind of the Time Monk that wards off the cold, then shows that he's wearing warm pants under his robe, and then ... shows that the snow melts all around his sandaled, naked feet - the equivalent of which would be O-Chul proving that his thoughts can melt ice.)
