    I literally exclaimed, "OOOOH" out loud when I saw the image of the Dark One. I feel like this arc has been reframing everything we knew about this conflict at least once a page for a while. Is this going to end with a team-up with Redcloack??? Because I would be totally down for that.

    A pantheon of one...

    Huh. So does that mean the elven and/or western gods inadvertently blew their chance with they combined the pantheons for the elves? Or are the elven gods actually a 5th color set that we just haven't seen yet?

    2nd- also, confirmed, the dark one is new as of this world. So they're going to have to get Redcloak to agree that the snail is dangerous and needs to be contained, probably when the world is about to get swallowed up, and then rbyp can save the day againt rgby.

    Considering the elven gods vote with the western pantheon, their color is probably red.

    But this means that Redcloak is right. Destroy the world and have the gods work with the Dark One to make a fair world with humans (etc.) and goblins.

    I wonder how him being a different color is going to affect thigs. I'm bettimg a lot; it's something the Snarl has never before encountered.

    Ahhhh! But if I recall correctly, the Dark One wants a better deal for Goblinkind NOW, or the snarl gets released.

    I really feel that the character development and of Redcloak and all the Goblins have led to this point.

    All worlds but one were made of three colors. I wonder if the world in the rift is the first world...

    And this is why the Dark One didn't get to vote at the Godsmoot. Had a feeling the Purple aura was important.

    No, he's still wrong. Because the dark one doesn't know the process of making new worlds, not even that there are more world's than this one and the first, he thinks that they need to blackmail the gods into making the goblins better. On the contrary, the gods would be thankful for the existence of the purply pantheon and willingly give goblins a better footing.

    Also the fact that only Thor has noticed what the dark one means to the world is strange. When the dark one was introduced in SOD, the evil Gods are like "hey, he cool" instead of being like OMG guys the purple magical energy

    Fun thought: If the Dark One is the sole beneficiary of all Goblinoid souls, would it not be unreasonable to say that his power would match even Hel if she got her way, and the world gets destroyed?

    Would make sense since all other worlds were devoured and the snarl, being a 4 colored creature, can't damage a 4 colored thing like the first world.

    That or the snarl, after millions of years of boredom, created his own 4 colored world.

    I suspect that the elven gods had the same divine wavelength as the other western gods, and our friendly godly dwarf king always on the wavelength of the Northern Pantheon, while the Dark One is on a different wavelength, possibly because he wasn't raised with the philosophies of the three pantheons or some other reason.

    Assuming the other gods would allow TDO into their sanctuary and the creation of the new world instead of leaving him to be killed by the Snarl. I suspect there's also a bit of world creation that we haven't been told that allows TDO to 'patch up' the world in a way that means they can stick with the current one.

    I sense a team up in the future, though I'm sure that Redcloak wouldn't want to put a label on it...

    Speaking if which, hopefully, Redcloak is down for it. Talk about not wanting to rock the boat, we all know how much he hates deviating from "The Plan." (And how far he's willing to go to keep things on track.)
