    frown OOTS #478 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is (finally) up.

    I'm going to try to get some more comics (i.e. more than 3) up next week to catch up on this week's drought, if everything works out. No promises, naturally.

    Great comic, Redcloak is once again kicking ass through summons and V has finally resurfaced...although I would have preferred a more imposing return. Oh well

    Yes! We have a V, and just when we needed one, too. (Okay, so maybe it is a spell-less V, but a V in a tutoring position with Elan as the actual caster is still pretty sweet.)

    Liked the rendition of the celestial lion- and in Azure City colors, too.

    Now if someone or something could spontaneously Haste Haley and Belkar, then we'd be on to something. But I don't see that happening, so I'll just hope for whatever it is Rich has up his sleeve.

    Good job as usual; this strip was well worth the wait.

    Great strip. Yah! V is back. At least V was honest about being on the junk.

    At least it isn't a kraken attacking the junk.

    Regardless, I think Belkar made a pretty fair assessment of their current condition.

    Might Elan actually be able to save the day? "I'm participating!"

    Nice one! And to think I just grumbled that V hasn't had any character development!

    S/he is using hir intellegence to help Elan get rid of the hobbos, instead of either blasting them to bits (at full power) or calling hir attorney!

    But I think my theory form earlier is going to end up coming true...

    Spoiler
    Show
    The team is about to end up split, with Hinjo (Muscle), Vaarsuvious (Magic), Durkon (Cleric Magic) and Elan (Support/Mixed Bag) forming one team, while Roy (Muscle, if a spell can be found), Haley (Rogue), Belkar (Backup Muscle) and Celia (Magic) forming the second team.

    This might be good, or amazingly frustrating. "Goblins, Life Through Their Eyes" is an amazingly good comic, but right now there are two battles going on, with Thunt (the artist) switching back and forth between the two. I love the strip, but somedays I wish I didn't have internet access for a month or so...

    Whew - Rich's back too!

    My favourite part of this comic is actually the artwork of the huddled masses and the simplicity of trying to hide but being a different colour.

    Excellent return to form Rich

    With Elan having quite a few levels of bard, he should know more a good number more spells than just one illusion and be able to cast many more times this day. It is just that him being Elan makes him not realize how much power he actually has. With V's guidance, Elan is a virtually untapped source of usable arcane power. Those hobbos are really in for it.

    The drawback is that Redcloak is there, and he will be unstoppable or just un-killable. If not for his presence, it would be a whole lot more justifiable that the defenders of the junk win this battle and allow Elan (with his unused spells), V and the others to go out and retrieve Haley, Belkar and Roy.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Elan scares off all of the hobbos with his spells. Redcloak, seeing his army retreat, either retreats with them or is captured. The heroes can exchange a captured Redcloak for O-Chul later in a prisoner swap.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Of course, buy that time, O-Chul would have been turned to the Dark Side and actually be a mole within the heroic organization upon his return.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Or quite the opposite, perhaps. Redcloak is turned and becomes a heroic mole.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Nah. Redcloak retreats and rejoins Xykon. Haley & others make it to the junk. The fugitives evacuate to Cliffport to plan retaking AC. O-chul enjoys tea and stew.

    What ^ said. They can't really win with Redcloak there.

    Also, why the ? Are the thread smileys just random, or does it have some meaning?

    And one good grease spell on the dock, and Elan saves the day. At least as far as the hobbos are concerned.

    Even if the grease spell gets dispelled by Redcloak, Elan is a spontaneous caster, he can just keep recasting it.


    Also, V telling Elan about his circumstance bonuses on the illusion is hilarious.

    Great Strip!

    Not sure why it's a double, but I'm not complaining. Elan with V is actually effective, but there are still a lot of hobbos on the dock. What I want to know is why Hinjo hasn't set his junk free at this point. Is he waiting for everyone to evacuate? for the oots?

    Another piece of evidence that V isn't good.

    Nice with Elan turning the other way and thus hiding the scratch!

    It's funny how V never explained to Elan how his illusions might be working better before. Oh, and it's equally funny how V attempts to dodge Elan's not-even-made accusations.

    Is it just my imagination, or is Lien hitting the octopus with a broom-like object in panel 4? Goofy.

    Oh, no, that's her spear. The 'pus just bleeds green.
