    Awesome. I can't wait to see who Belkar is going to kill.

    edit: or get killed, at least

    XD - 1st 1st page ever and I'm akin to a happy little boy at Christmas.

    Roy didn't mention Azure City in his question =(

    Anyway, I thought if Xykon didn't head within 1000 ft of his next targeted gate, Roy would be further tricked by his own cleverness wouldn't it?

    *rofl*

    That was great. While the questions weren't that surprising (except Roy's - in a way *lol* ) the answers certainly leave a lot of food for thought. And I absolutely love Roy outwitting himself - that is what you get for trying to be smarter than the author of the story... This is going to be fun... *eg*

    And I'm very curious if Belkar's answer won't become a self fullfilling prophecy... One of the kind that causes dreadful things to happen that would never have happened if they hadn't been foretold...

    Wait ...

    Plots points! Promises of character death! A bard the only truly happy member of the party? Sarcasm? Belkar killing one of the beings he hates most?

    And the tightly written 1st Edition Wish contract twisted into a plot point?

    Is that STORY I smell?

    For anyone who is curious, Google the term "ginko-bilboa" to see what sort of natural remedy the Oracle is suggesting for V's familiar.

    Well to be honest it's Durkon I feel sorry for.

    I hope he makes some nice dwarf friends on the way (hopefully with the return of a certain ex-girlfriend!)

    Hi, first post for me. I think it translates as

    "What can I do to restore my speech?"

    but it requires h and r to be represented by the same letter which doesn't quite work, but hey.

    To finish Lokeys work:

    "Restore" fits for everything but the Rs. If you assume F can be either H or R, then it works. Since the Giant has done that numerous times in the past, it works.

    Ie: What can I do to restore my speech?
    Things in the OotS universe are exactly as they appear to be, until they aren't.

    Cute. Roy knows there are three gates. As such, he would have crafted a question that included all three gates. Clearly, despite what the story would have you believe, it requires that they be headed towards the "wrong" gate. :) Roy isn't as stupid as the Oracle would have you believe. Of course, The Story might mandate misery for this supposed error, but it's not like Roy has a choice in the matter. ;)

    I love that Belkar's simplicity made it obfuscate the answer. Preface "Which of the following" and remove "any of the following" and you get a list, instead.

    I love Elan's question.

    Poor, poor Durkon. I hope at least he finds out the why to provide him some solace.

    V. Hee hee hee. That should be ... amusing.

    I also love the non-trance moments of the Oracle when requesting a different question.

    Wow, lots of foreshadowing here! So what might be the four words V will say, and to who, and for what wrong reason?

    Spoiler
    Show
    The being may be the Snarl. V could sacrifice zerself to seal the rift behind a Gate that got opened, and will say something challenging to get the Snarl blast zer with the magic power of the Universe. Belkar could push V in to the rift, so V can save the world, doing a good act but getting to cause the death of V in the process. Or something like that!

    I could comment about the plot. I really could. I could comment on the jokes. But people do that all the time.

    No, I'm going to say something nobody else would bother to point out. They never do. See that head of Tiamat's? The one poking up through the top of the strip? That... that is the coolest stick-figure visual effect to date.

    Well, that and the way the panels involving Xykon's legions are actually connected to show one full picture of the zombie dragon.

    Oh, was it yet another demonstration for "figters are dumb"?

    Seems like Roy's MBA did'nt help him much this time.


    I fear Elan could see a "Happy End" in every little flower surviving the apocalyptic final battle... :-/


    Anyway, great strip!
