    "My Fault"? I'm guessing the whole idea of creating the Goblin race as XP Fodder for Clerics was Thor's idea?

    Wow, I'm glad that at least some of the "good" gods are taking responsibility for their horrible decisions.

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I for one would totally be fine with 100-200 strips of this Thor and the Dark One sitcom. A series of hilarious misunderstandings would cause each episode to end with a new Snarl unmaking creation but it'd be back to normal at the start of the next one.

    Hmm, when Thor mentioned that the Dark One ascended on his own with no sponsorship for existing pantheons, it got me thinking...

    What are the odds that a certain puppet god will ultimately come in to play in all of this?

    I wonder if all this divine essence colors thing is created by the god's followers. If I remember my prequel readings, the Dark One ascended to godhood on his own because of the gathering of all goblinoid races.

    It could be, it follows the same logic as the rest of the OOTS universe.

    I also wonder what is his plan of reasoning with him.

    His name was totally metal? I reckon before he became The Dark One, he was known as Osbourne Kilmister.

    Well, color me surprised. (No pun intended.)

    I was wondering how The Dark One was different from the Elven Gods. Always try to get by on your own merits, kids. (The More You Know.) Also, I'm curious to see just how Thor is responsible for ill relations with The Dark One. Things were already rocky from the start between TDO and the other pantheons; He learned that the Gods purposefully made goblins like him cannon fodder for PC races, it doesn't get much worse than that. One has to wonder just how badly Thor screwed the pooch if he thinks it's his fault.

    There is no way that Red Cloak (the goblin) will forgive all that has happened.

    Wait ... will Durkon end up wearing The Red Cloak (thereby becoming the new HPoDO) once all is said and done?!?

    Nope. I think I should forget that thought...

    I didn't think they could create more snarls. Of course, they didn't mention color theory until now.

    I think you have a slight misunderstanding of how being a Cleric works.

    Perhaps he doesn't. Instead, he gets Loki to come up with a plan to trick The Dark One and fix the rift.

    I read "metal" as "mental" and was thoroughly confused for half a minute.

    Anyway, I'm on Team "It's Thor's Fault Because He Wanted to Kill the Dark One upon Ascension".

    I'm guessing that Thor drunkenly insulted the Dark One or was one of the people who decided Goblins should be experience fodder. Or even worse, maybe Thor TOLD his followers to kill The Dark One when he was still alive (though I doubt that since it's a dishonorable attack).

    In Start of Darkness...

    Spoiler: Start of Darkness
    Show
    ... Thor is the one used to represent the "take the Dark One out while we still can!" reaction to his ascension. (The panel specifically shows Thor and the Dark One about to fight with Loki and Tiamat interceding on The Dark One's behalf.) I'm guessing that, at the time, Thor was in, and possibly even the leader of, the "Kill the upstart!" faction. Something he now very much regrets.


    Also, interesting that the other gods have already figured out The Dark One's Plan and are playing chess around him as much as he is around them.

    How would "the slightest disagreement" between Thor and the Dark One create a new Snarl? I thought it only emerged after Ages of infighting between four entire pantheons, and required so much disagreement over such a long period of time that its creation was so subtle that none of them noticed and so it took them all off guard.

    Also... does Thor's comment there sound like foreshadowing to anyone else? Calling it now: they'll destroy the Snarl by creating a counter-Snarl with the Dark One's help and having the two annihilate each other.

    Probably, having seen how it works and the end result, they don't want to take the risk.

    Remember that they are specially vulnerable, so they might be hurt with no way of undoing even a small one.

    I love it! Or they will combine into an even bigger snarl and it will now be made of 5 colors. Oops.
