    Heh. All the world is but a soap opera, the people merely actors. Very nice.

    Hehe fantastic, glad to see Eugene get dumped after what he does to Roy all the time!

    I think Roy might be in for a very annoying stay on this cloud....

    Some loose ends have been tied. Miko is on the other side, and Roy is doomed to listen to his father.

    So unless Eugene is mistaken no Roy+Miko in the afterlife

    Clearly Roy's afterlife isn't all it's cracked up to be.

    The cleric who commented about the 22 was the one who was destroyed by Redcloak, in the courtyard, as he got a 21 on his saving throw against a Destruction spell.

    I was just thinking, if someone who wasn't a Greenhilt destroyed Xykon forever, would Eugene still be affected by the Blood Oath, and if Xykon was somehow ressurected, would the Blood Oath come back into effect?

    Well, with Violet leaving, I guess it really is just Eugene and Roy.

    Poor Roy.

    Oh, and thanks to whoever pointed out what the "22" thing was. I was sitting here for several minutes trying to think what it could possibly mean.

    Nice revisition of "Epic cleric battle" strip

    Also - Miko's definitely not in the line. It's far too orderly and there aren't sounds of battle all over the place Why are they in their mortal gear, anyway? Or, the thing about being buried with all your treasure [think pyramids, etc] applies in oots world?

    I'd say in the eternal struggle of Roy vs. his old man, Roy wins this round.

    that 22 statement was great! I wonder if Roy and Eugene will manage to reach the other side of the mountain. With all this set-up, I wonder if Durkon will actually ressurect Roy anytime soon.

    Perhaps the form one takes in the afterlife has to do with one's mental image of oneself. In OOTS, I'd have to think that whatever equipment and stuff is drawn in the character portrait, that's how that character's soul would appear in the afterlife.

    Therefore, if Elan were to die he would probably be up on his alignment-appropriate cloud butt nekkid.
