    My interest in Order of the Stick has shot all the way up to maximum now.

    Would be a reeeeeal bad time to have schedule slip happen about now. Which in my mind means it probably will! >_<

    Also, where is Durkon ACTUALLY, then? Some kind of meeting place for this kind of thing?

    A quote from ye olde AVP game pops into my head: “Hey, it’s a boot!”

    Quite the nifty reveal. Anyone else thinking we’re about to pop over to the rest of the Order? This seems like the kind of information that doesn’t get revealed until a more dramatic moment.

    Ok, I love longshot bets. Here's one why not? In addition to the infodump, Durkon will get a set of Thorforged armor and weaponry.

    Of course, I'd also eat my own hat if that happened, but hey, fun longshot.

    Thor looks sober, serious and focused. Almost god-like. This should be fun.

    Did you noticed that Minra and Dukon are standing on Thor's boot?

    Is the tower his leg?

    EDIT: yes, the place they are in is totally Thor.

    Well, Durkon is the only armed member of the order to NOT receive a weapon upgrade (Roy's sword: starmetal; Elan got two new rapiers; Haley got a new bow in Greysky; Belkar got Tarquin's dagger; V is unarmed, but as a wizard, pretty much IS a weapon, and has leveled up many times).

    Can Thor send him Mjolinir, assuming Durkon's heirloom hammer was left behind and destroyed in Girard's pyramid?

    So dwarfs souls either end up becoming Hel's slave or becoming dust mites running in the wool of Thor's boots? A sad fate, indeed!

    (And wow, called by name by the boss! Durkon's self esteem must be as high as the sky!)

    Incoming infodump about the rifts? Also, I can't help but wonder if Durkon's confusion about who did what is hinting that he absorbed the Negative Energy spirit and it is now a subconscious part of his soul.

    Oh that splash panel! I did not see it at first glance and almost fell off my chair when I noticed it. That's hilarious!

    Edit: Also, first page, yay! Truly an improvement of my day that I needed :)

    Definitely, I'd say. Thor waited until Durkon mentioned the Snarl.

    Wow, great comic! Also, Kudos to those who predicted a direct run-in with Thor. I feel like somewhere in the next panel, Elan is going to shout "PLOT EXPOSITION!"

    Also, man, the Summoned Proxies were a LOT SMALLER than the actual gods... Yikes.

    Magnificent :)

    Also, yeah, info dump incoming I reckon - I wondered when and how we'd get a significant extra move-forward with the main cosmology of the plot before the end of this book.
