    So, I guess Bugbears and the have been „recruited” by Reddy and Co.

    Oh and the MitD has a new umbrella.

    Guess that clears up the mystery of who this dude was with...and means this wasn't anywhere near the random encounter it originally appeared to be.

    Somehow, seeing Redcloak all peaceful like that is worrying.

    But, hey! Duckie Umbrella! Sweet!

    Is she? I thought Hobgoblins were usually bright orange; she's much more dull in colour.

    I suppose the most important question to ask is how the MitD swapped umbrellas without revealing itself.

    I would have said: And thus, the mystery ends! 100% bugbear.

    1. She looks bigger than Redcloak to me. Taller, bulkier. Just look at the size of her feet compared to Redcloak's.
    2. She has a hunched-over build unlike the upright stance of the Hobgoblins.
    3. She's got face fur.
    4. She's very clearly tan and the hobgoblins are very clearly bright orange.

    And the late notes soar to a higher range,

    Huh, actually saw this in time to be on the first page for once

    In any case: Wooo, MiTD is back! And nice to know that the rider did come from Xykon after all. (Lien's pessimism has failed her! )

    EDIT: The title confuses me. Is it just stating that MiTD is not a duck?

    Damn, but that all's pretty.

    So I'm guessing Oona was a scout who happened to find the paladins, and the debriefing is gonna shake up Reddie. Don't think he's gonna believe that they died.

    Also, this is my first look at Redcloak in the new art. Dude looks badass.

    Is Oona a character who has been previously introduced?
    Is Oona a bugbear? (For some reason, it being the northern arctic area of OoTS world, I get the idea that a bugbear for polar bear swap might amuse the author".

    Given the conversation that MiTD had with Redcloak and Xykon, and O'Chul now actually being on the way to the gate, what will MiTD's reaction be when Oona reports the defeat of two paladin's by drowning/freezing/sonicking?

    Stay tuned, for the next exciting episode of (characters who are not actually in the) Order of The Stick!

    I continue to be mystified that people ever thought Redcloak and Xykon were just going to be able to stroll up to the last gate.

    Redcloak is, of course, preparing spells for the day.

    +1 Bugbear. Also, in addition to the verbal intel, it looks like Oona has a crossbow bolt complete with bright blue fletching to tip off Reddy.
