    I just noticed the detail of RC's tattered cloak, nice!

    That is... more doors than I expected. And, obviously, they've already been making exploratory incursions, which neatly clears up the lingering "what has Xykon been doing all this time" issues.

    I believe statistically speaking you might as well just do the doors in order.

    Heh. Throwback city - "Keep on the Borderlands" and a lot of other dungeons where the question is "What's behind door #4"?

    Grayview managed to be annoying rather than amusing, at least to me. I imagine that if you had to live with him after a few weeks you'd be investing in a tight-fitting muzzle.

    It appears that MitD is allowed to go with Team Evil into the dungeon, or at least to approach the doors. And we now know the MitD can hold two things at once - umbrella and paint brush - which is probably implied from the rope pulling scene, but anyway, two appendages not used for standing.

    Poor defiled Stone dwarf. Scribble all over on the Order of the Scribble is irony, yes?

    I like that Xykon lets MitD have his fun, though. And the exchange between Oona and Greyview is hilarious. An exciting new adventure by an Evil party is about to begin.

    I didn't notice it until you pointed it out. I suppose that's more anatomically correct. I think it clashes a bit with the upper teeth and the jaw though.

    Wow. Xykon's neck got a serious overhaul. Not sure how to feel about that. Also, are the monsters in Kragor's Tomb breeding? If so, is Team Evil just going to spend the next book looking through the doors and getting jumped on by monsters?

    From behind he appears to be a toadstool with a crown, probably from Super Mario Brothers.

    Maybe they do, but the doors rearrange themselves overnight.

    Probably not Kraagor/Serini's style though. She designed a tomb filled "with the nastiest monsters in the world, to reflect [Kraagor's] belief in the power of physical might". I'll have to look elsewhere for reshuffling doors.

    I wouldve thought that Kraagors tomb would be like very large dungeon crawling thing

    Edit: Does this mean that MitD can fly? Since the doors are a little far off from the ground and from where he is standing

    In before the inevitable reveal where all the doors are fake and the Gate is hidden within the statue.

    It is a bit off-putting.

    Love the multiple doors; it's like a giant roulette of pain.

    Seeing Xykon's neckbone behind his jaw is kind of weirding me out. I'm sure I'll get used to it eventually.

    Xykon was reeeeally snarky towards Redcloak, even for him. He must be running empty on patience. I'm interested in seeing how this particular delving goes.

    Now that's a dungeon entrance! I wonder if Oona and the clan have actually found the gate at any point in their expeditions, and just figured it was something unimportant.

    Instead, it's several hundred very large dungeon crawls. Spend all day investigating one, only to find it does not lead you to the gate.
