    Thanks, Giant.
    Love the Slaad/Deva bit. Chortled, I did.

    The tadpole must learn to chew its way out

    Also: Thanks, Giant.

    So it seems that Hilgya ressurected him. That's going to complicate things with their obvious religious differences and her stated desire to kill him.

    I kinda hope we'll now go back in time a bit and see the Order come to, but I guess technically speaking they might still be unconscious and this could well be just Hilgya and Belkar.

    ........anyone else now suddently 100% certain that Durkon's resurrection is going to have some weird complications? Like, it's going to be a week or two later, or the entire council was killed or Hilgya is rez'ing him away from the OOTS or something like that?

    Might just be my inner Elan talking, but having not seen any of the living since Durkon was staked... well, who knows what's happened down there...

    I would not be surprised if this spell is being chanted by Hilgya, with Belkar's knife to her throat. I don't think it'll be the case, but it wouldn't surprise me.

    Well, that's got to be the funniest panel in the whole comic, I reckon. And it had a good followup joke.

    Can't wait to see the first moments of Durkon's new lease on life!

    Oh, I laughed pretty good at the end sequence there.

    Also a bit relieved that resurrecting Durkon won't require too many hoops. I'm assuming some worse fate won't befall him. (I'm still hoping that my theory that Belkar talks her out of doing anything worse to Durkon is correct.)

    I'm curious what it is that breaks the minds of all the Outsiders. That, coupled with what happens to Odin, makes you really wonder about the stability of pretty much everyone who is immortal in the OOTSverse.

    I'm also rather curious if there have been many mortals who have managed to weather the destruction of their world (via living in the Astral Plane or one of the outer ones), or if there's a more vital connection to their own world. Also, what happens to the souls that came from previous worlds, have their memories been erased or are they just gone/faded into their plane of alignment?

    Perfect timing indeed. And another tidbit of information on how the world-remaking works. Gods wipe the outsider's minds, that explains why none of them know about it (like for example the IFCC)

    Shout out to the Slaadi!

    Edit: come to think of it, is the spawn of a Slaad and a Deva just 100% pure Slaad, or some kind of Celestial Slaad? Could it have been 100% Deva or 100% Slaad but not 50% of each?

    Oh man, I wanted Durkon to meet Tenrin. Well, that's (after)life.
    durkon saying goodbye to Minrah like tht makes me think she won't come back.
    The gods wipes the the Outsiders memories? Interesting, that means the Fiends really didin't know about the Snarl before Nale told Sabine.

    I'm not sure I get, the joke right though. The Deva went to a Chaotic plane and had sex with one of the toad creature and somehow he got pregnant because chaos, I guess? Or is the deva a masculine-looking (for a stick-figure) she?

    Heh, I didn't see your comment before I made mine. If Belkar got the jump on her, it's certainly possible. (Or more darkly sick and/or hilarious, if he took Kudzu hostage to make her do it.) Also possible Hilgya thinks it's the best course of action for whatever reason; her mind is a tough nut to crack.

    I don't think the Resurrection is going to be purely straightforward, but I do think the obstacles will resolve themselves quickly and even humorously.

    I wondered the same thing in the MITD thread. Might be just how female devas look, might be a joke about slaads being just that chaotic, might be a lot of things.

    Well Slaadi can "impregnate" (yeah, let's call it that) anyone of any gender. As for what happens next, there is a certain scene in the movie Alien that might demonstrate it (that character was male too). Which means that the Deva is tough as nails, by the way, to survive that "birth" (yeah, let's call it that).

    The female devas who deal with Roy (in his review and trying to warn him about Vaarsuvius) are clearly OOTS-female shaped. I think this might actually be a male deva who got implanted by a slaad tadpole. (The deva being male would also explain his confusion about whether or not he should push.)

    So, assuming this all takes place directly after the fight, Hilgya had to have that Resurrection prepared, right? Is that Loki's influence, do we think, or was Hilgya planning to kill Durkon in such a way that only a Resurrection could bring him back if she so desired?

    That's how I originally read it, but I've been known to make mistakes before, so I just wanted to check. Much appreciated!

    The joke is that Slaads reproduce by implanting their eggs into other beings' flesh, regardless of the being's nature, and then the toadpool goes out chestbuster style.

    Toadfolk are more the Bullywugs, or the Grungs.

    Slaads are toad-shaped chaos.
