    It's a worg. Technically, it's a type of wolf, but evil and intelligent.

    Worgs speak Common (which for us is English).

    Hoping that worg is going to play an active part in the story.

    Was the demon roach gonna try to steal the treat that last panel?

    Worgs in D&D can speak their own language, some learn even Common, so yes, he's probably just speaking english. There wasn't any "Who are you talking to" when MitD answered.

    So... now let the speculations on what the MitD is run wild again!

    I'm wondering if what Oona's saying about respect might make the creature in the darkness reflect on the fact that Xykon doesn't respect him (or anyone else, for that matter).

    I like how the bugbear has a different kind of bad grammar than the orcs. She capitalizes first letters in sentences, and sounds more like a stereotypical russian than a troll under a bridge.

    It was started with Mr Stiffly, he is already on the path to independence. I wouldnt be surprised if there is an eventual showdown where bone boy wants to kill ochul and the beast doesnt want it. Last time he helped ochul by accident, next time? May be different.

    The MitD is definitely developing, as he now recognizes that Xykon is not his master.

    Hmm, more clues about the monster, although I suppose the main point ("will grow in time") was already inferred.

    I'm liking the direction Monster in the Darkness is going. Xykon is just some guy he hangs out with.
